George played at a veterans function for us and everyone enjoyed the music! It was a laid-back function and his guitar playing just made the environment even better. I really appreciated that he was punctual and had everything he needed, his set-up was quick and he started to play! Even though our function was quite casual, and he knew what the event was, he was dressed professionally. We really enjoyed that as people came into our event, they were greeted with his lovely guitar playing. Thanks for helping us make our event successful!

Incredibly Talented, Easy To Work With, And Great Music

     George Schumann played for a reception I recently hosted. He is incredibly talented, he is easy to work with, and his music helped create the perfect environment for the reception. I highly recommend him.

The Ivory Room, Miranova Place, Columbus, Ohio

     George was an awesome asset to have at our wedding. He was super responsive, awesome to meet and he played wonderfully. I reached out to him months before our wedding and gave him a few songs I wanted to use in our wedding (that he was unfamiliar with) He invited us to watch him play them at a restaurant so we could hear how they sounded beforehand. We were thankful to have found George because he was a great price and well worth it! We would recommend George a million times over. He played great and is an awesome guy.

George Was the Right Choice!

     We are so glad we connected with George when looking for a musician for our wedding! We knew we wanted acoustic guitar playing for our intimate ceremony. George was quick to respond to all of our emails, questions, and requests. In addition to being attentive, he was professional and kind. George learned the songs we had in mind and added an extra special touch to our intimate wedding ceremony with his skillful guitar playing. George even played our songs for us when we visited the sushi restaurant where he is featured on Friday evenings. George traveled to both our rehearsal and event and showed up early with a smile on his face. He was friendly with guests and worked well with the venue staff. We could not have asked for a better or more professional musician! We highly recommend George if you are looking for a talented guitarist and kind person to help make your event special and stress-free!

     I can't say enough about George! From the point of contact to the start of his session, he was responsive to my questions and ideas. Upon arrival to set up he selected a perfect location to sit that allowed us to enjoy the music. He is, of course, a most talented musician playing a variety of songs across 2 hours. It was nothing short of spectacular! George made a special event perfect.

Pickerington, Ohio


The perfect blend of class and music!

     We used Romantic Guitar for our daughters graduation luncheon for 110 people. Everyone LOVE the music! The song were perfect! After the event, at least 20 of my guest asked how they could hire George for their event. We will keep George in mind for any event we have that needs a touch of great music!

5/11/19 Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Reception 

at The Honey Farm, Lebanon, Ohio    

     George was Perfect!

     I wanted a guitarist for the ceremony/cocktail hour of my wedding in October. George was nothing but professional, fun, and quick to respond. I had requested a couple songs to be played for the ceremony and he learned them for our big day! About a month or so before our big day, he invited my fiance and I to a sushi restaurant where he plays. He played our our songs for us while we sipped on wine and ate sushi. He was amazing!  He played our cocktail and our ceremony and we got so many compliments on his playing skills. He was A HIT at our wedding. I strongly recommend...he was willing to travel 50 miles to play our big day, and I can't thank him enough because I couldn't have imagined having someone else play our wedding ceremony. If you're in the Columbus area, I recommend George with Romantic Guitar.

10/27/18 Wedding at Stillwell Centre,  Chillicothe, Ohio

      We had an outdoor English Countryside wedding and wanted someone who would provide romantic guitar music which people could enjoy listening to and also have a conversation with other guests without straining over the music. George was perfect! His style of romantic guitar is lovely and has an upbeat feel to it. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. George was also extremely accommodating and easy to work with. We would highly recommend him for weddings, parties, engagements, etc...

2/18/17  Wedding Ceremony at the Columbus Athletic Club

     George was wonderful, from the first moment of contact until he was done performing on our special day.  I come from a family of musicians and grew up with music being a huge part of everyday life.  As critical as we can be, every one of my family members and so many friends commented on how great George sounded. We asked for several songs that George specifically learned and arranged to play during our ceremony, and he did an amazing job!  We highly recommend him and couldn't have been happier.  Thank you so much George:)
