Booking Information

Looking for live music for your next 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.

Ensemble Performances
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.

Weddings
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.

other considerations
Performance fees may vary according to the length of the engagement, number of musicians involved, preparation time, and traveling considerations. 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.
