CLASSICAL & JAZZ GUITAR. My repertoire is an eclectic blend of traditional classical guitar works along with jazz and popular standards. Over the past thirty years I have performed for countless weddings, receptions, anniversaries, corporate functions, special events and concerts throughout greater Boston and all of New England. My music has always been very well received and I am frequently invited back for repeat engagements.
Classical guitar music is generally light yet elegant and includes everything from transcriptions of Renaissance and Baroque lute music to Romantic and Contemporary works - lots of Spanish music as well. When it comes to wedding music, classical guitar creates an ambiance very similar to the harp. Many of my bookings are for weddings and I'd be happy to offer the benefit of my experience in the music selection process.
The jazz and popular standards known as "The American Songbook" make great background music for any special event. Many of today's most prominent performing artists still take material from this well-spring of outstanding tunes. Composers such as Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Henry Mancini, Ann Ronnell, Richard Rogers and a host of others left a legacy of timeless classics which are widely known and loved across generational lines. Performing this music on solo acoustic guitar has become a particular specialty of mine.
