Whatever your musical tastes, live music will enhance any special event. My performances fall into two broad categories: solo fingerstyle guitar and jazz/blues ensembles.
solo guitar performances
Swinging arrangements by jazz masters set the perfect mood for a relaxing cocktail hour or dinner party, while classical works create a sophisticated ambiance well suited to wedding ceremonies and formal events.
For a more dynamic performance a small jazz ensemble/rhythm and blues group is available. Ensembles are versatile enough to perform light jazz during cocktail hour and danceable favorites after dinner.
My standard wedding ceremony fee in Athens,Ohio is $300.00. This includes a consultation to pick out music, attendance at the rehearsal and of course the wedding. Additional costs may be incurred for out-of-town weddings and special music requests. The standard wedding reception fee for solo guitar is $100.00 the first hour and $50.00 per hour after that. Prices for ensemble performances vary according to the needs of the client. Please ask for a quote.
Performance fees vary according to the length of the engagement, number of musicians involved, traveling considerations, and preparation time. If there is a particular song or musical theme that’s important to your event, please let me know and I will work to shape all aspects of the music to help create the mood you desire. In the past, I have enjoyed creating unique presentations for my clients. All performances include sound reinforcement that is designed to maintain a comfortable volume for conversation. Musicians dress according to guidelines agreed upon by myself and the client. To discuss booking a performance please email me with the details of your event.
