"SGM were wonderful to work with! Super helpful and a very easy process from start to finish. We were lucky to have DJ Hevrock (Travis) as our DJ/MC for our wedding reception and Curt Owen performing at our ceremony and cocktail hour. Both Travis and Curt were not only extremely talented, but also great people. They were both so pleasant to work with and made our day extra special. We received so many compliments from our guests! I highly recommend Travis and Curt!"

"This is the second time we've worked with SGM. SGM made both experiences easy to navigate. Both times we enjoyed the music so much that we asked Curt Owens to play an extra hour. Booking for an extra hour on the spot was also easy. We will be looking into SGM again for upcoming events."

"Curt Owen performed at a Corporate event I attended and I was so impressed I got his contact info to book him for my upcoming engagement party. Booking with SGM was super easy, Curt was professional, on time, prepared, and created a magical and enlightened, fun atmosphere during our event! We heard great feedback and were overall extremely happy and impressed with SGM and Curt. Thanks for making our special day even more memorable!"

"SGM Events truly went above and beyond for our wedding day. After working with Freddie to find people within our budget, we were recommended Curt Owen for acoustic guitar and DJ Hevrock. Both were absolutely phenomenal. Curt is so talented and let us pick three songs we wanted for our ceremony and learned them in a matter of days. Our guests are still gushing about great he was! DJ Hevrock is kind and professional -- and even gave my shy groom a signal so he could cut off the song as soon as he was uncomfortable dancing in front of everyone. Our older guests especially appreciated Hevrock's ability to read the room and not play the music at a volume that they couldn't have a conversation during. I would choose this team over and over again if I could. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day flow so easily."

"I have heard nothing but the best things about Curt Owen since our event. He is seriously so talented and really brought that extra piece of magic to our ceremony. He is sweet, kind and professional -- and I would book him ten times over if I could (but I'll definitely be recommending him to all of our friends). Working with Sleeping Giant Music has been a breeze and I'm just so thankful."

“I hired Curt Owen and Gave through SGM Events. They were a guitar and Bass Violin Duo. I couldn’t have been more pleased. We hired them to play at the San Luis Rey Mission for our daughters wedding. They played her processional and recessional songs. They were just what she was hoping for.”

“We hired SGM events and were put in touch with Curt Owen, a guitarist and Gabe, a bass violinist. We didn’t give the Duo much lead time to learn our 4 songs. . . All songs were different from one another. All of these songs were to be played an instrumental. They were flawless in their performance. They arrived early and stayed longer, playing an extra song while we took photos. They were young and energetic like the couple getting married. The pianist and female vocalist that were with the church enjoyed meeting the two men and commented on how polite they were. I would definitely hire them again.”

Kathryn B., Mother of the Bride

“SGM Events was such a pleasure to work with from the start! DJ Mikey Beats killed it! He played all the right songs at the right moments and made sure to include our request. When we met with him, he was so knowledgeable about the whole wedding planning experience, we even jotted down a rough timeline for our entire wedding the moment we met, which is typically what the wedding coordinators do. He created such amazing energy and people were on the dance floor nonstop. Curt Owen played for our cocktail reception and ceremony. SGM Events referred them to us after we booked Mikey Beats and so many people complimented them. Curt plays acoustic guitar with a stand-up bass guitarist which really made the duo sound incredible. It was a perfect blend having the live music leading up to the dj set. Curt learned a couple new songs and was so nice throughout the entire process and eager to make sure the day went just how we wanted to. He did such an amazing job! The whole team at SGM was incredible to work. Everyone was very responsive whenever we had any questions. It was so nice to book everything under one company. I highly recommend SGM and we couldn’t be happier with our decisions, especially because the music plays such a big role in the entire event!”

“Easy process to book and communicate with all involved. Kerry Glass did an amazing job getting the perfect musician for our wedding and communicating throughout the entire process. We originally wanted a guitarist and were about to cancel that idea when Kerry called and helped make my fiance’s dream come true. Our guitarist, Curt Owen, was professional and did an amazing job performing. All of our guests were commenting on how impressed they were and how much they enjoyed listening to him play. Customer service is one feature of a business that means the most to us and Sleeping Giant Music and SGM Events showed their passion and commitment to their clients the whole time. Thank you Freddie, Kerry, and Curt and the whole entire team!!!”
