Chris Vasi as a solo guitarist draws from an impressive range of material, and plays a self-contained style often keeping chords, bass line, and melody going simultaneously. Jazz solos (Joe Pass-style), reinterpretations of popular favorites, sweet bossa nova melodies, and inspired originals are all in the mix. One thing that hasn’t changed over the decades is that people love to hear great guitar playing, and Mr. Vasi delivers! Read less

My maid of honor found Chris Vasi for me on craigslist. We were doing low-budget music (sound system and iPod) for our wedding music - but I wanted something a bit more personal for our pre-ceremony and ceremony music. I had in mind a romantic acoustic guitar. Chris is exactly what I wanted.

He plays beautifully. He suggested some songs (I used The Beatles - Blackbird for the bridal party procession)...and he laughed but didn't seem fazed when I asked him for a really obscure song for my entrance. He learned it and it was beautiful as I walked in. I gave him free reign on the pre-ceremony music, but from what I understand from everyone, he did that well, also.

I definitely recommend contacting him if you're looking for a guitarist for your event.
