This afternoon I played solo instrumental guitar music for a birthday party down at Aldinga,
a beautiful part of South Australia!
Here are some kind words from the client :
"If you're looking to create an inviting and chilled vibe with a live act, I thoroughly recommend
guitarist Ken Cooke ! Everyone appreciated the warm ambience created by his tunes and it helped
to make my birthday celebration super memorable. Thanks Ken ! "
