“The first year, I got lots of comments about how "these guys are pretty good". This year, it was clear that everyone absolutely LOVED you, and the comments were "these guys are FANTASTIC!"”

From a friend who has been with us from the begining

“The best part was the live music, Steve Blechschmidt of Two Guitars Telling a Story at the outside patio. A very talented acoustic guitarist playing his own fingerstyle guitar, providing excellent atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed him. He played a mix of covers and original instrumental only songs. He often plays with a partner Guy Steagall. Definitely going back for the music.”

from a long distance friend

“We have had the pleasure of seeing you perform live several times now. We sent your CD to various friends around the country and everyone raved about it - EVERY SINGLE ONE! ”

Rob and Fran (Castle Rock)

“The CD has been on constant rotation in my car's CD player for the past two days. The range of songs is impressive from Allmans to Neil Young, to Beatles, and even a dash of Led Zep. I got on the website and found a version of "Classical Gas" that I really liked, too. I love that full wooden acoustic guitar sound and I love having these undiscovered treasures. Keith (Palm Beach Gardens)”

CD review

CD review

“Steve and Guy really do make beautiful music together. They don't just play guitar, they conjure art out of thin air, coaxing their instruments to deliver the listener to an ethereal plain. Take the time to listen to their soulful stories, they are far more than dinner music.”

Evan H.~ a music aficionado

“We love you guys and always look forward to seeing you!”

“I'm honestly not too worried, as I don't see how they could play something not lovely.”
