I trying to decide between two different guitarists for my wedding. I've asked both for references and samples of their performances. One came back with samples but said he didn't have a reference list and thought it was weird that I asked. I'm still waiting to hear back from the other. I've done this with all my vendors (and regularly do with anyone I'm getting into contract with) and this is the first time I've come across someone who didn't have references. Is it weird that I asked for references from a ceremony musician?
