A UNIQUE CEREMONY

If you're looking for an accomplished acoustic guitarist or ukulele player to perform a unique island-style wedding ceremony or surprise wedding proposal, Hal is the Big Kahuna. The bride can walk sown the aisle to "Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World" by IZ, "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele, "I Won't Give Up" or "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz, etc. Or liven up the exit with "Hey, Soul Sister" or "Just The Way You" are by Bruno Mars! Have an idea of your own? Hal will learn a new song or two for your big day!

A TRADITIONAL CEREMONY
If you prefer a more traditional ceremony, Hal Aaron will exceed your expectations. He has been playing for over 40 years and if you like, you can also request he bring a keyboard for classic piano or cathedral organ music.

PERFECT FOR YOUR COCKTAIL HOUR, TOO!
Hal performs a wide variety of songs and styles on acoustic and electric guitars, both as a solo performer or one-man show. He's personable, talented, appeals to all ages and can provide a great show in any environment.

THEME PARTIES
Whether you're planning a Christmas In The Caribbean, a Parrothead Birthday BBQ, a SIxties Theme or Seventies Tie-Dyed Birthday Celebration, Hal's extensive song list will fill the bill, be it a bar, a banquet hall, a wedding, anniversary, birthday or backyard bash, you'll find Hal to be most accommodating performing all your favorite rock, pop, soul, love ballads, country songs... and more! He has a tremendous ability to read an audience and his personality plays as much a part of the overall package as the music.

Hal provided music for our ceremony and he was absolutely fantastic to work with. He always responded to emails quickly and gave feedback about the music I wanted and even learned a song for me to walk down the aisle too. When we had to change the time and venue of our ceremony last minute (day of!) he accommodated us with ease. Overall, I would recommend Hal in a heartbeat.

Hal Aaron is incredibly talented! I found him on Gigmasters.com; he sounded amazing on his recordings but, I have to say, he sounded even better in person. He played "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as I walked down the aisle. For the recessional, he learned Colbie Caillat's "I Do" upon my request. (If possible, Hal will learn a new song and add it to his repertoire for your big day. How cool is that?!) We also booked Hal for our cocktail hour. Our guests loved him. He added the perfect vibe and played some great tunes!

Good luck with everything and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Hiring Hal was, quite possibly, the best decision I made for my wedding. Hal's fee was mighty reasonable considering his talent and flexibility. In spite of the unexpected chaos that occurred gathering family before the ceremony, Hal was patient, understanding., and unruffled. Prior to the event, Hal asked me to supply a song list and said he would do his best to play/perform every song. He exceeded my expectations, as well as those of others. Numerous guests stopped me during the reception to rave about the music and asked how I located Hal. My brother is planning to invite Hal to perform at his upcoming event(s). I look forward to enjoying his talent again.

Hal was AWESOME for my wedding. We were unsure about hiring a musician online, but Hal exceeded all expectations. He worked with us for months prior to the wedding and understood our goal of a laid-back, beach wedding with fun music. Hired only for the reception, Hal and I worked out a special arrangement for him to play acoustic at our ceremony too! He played the Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and I'm Yours by Jason Mraz. It was beautiful. Everyone asked where we found him! Hal was able to read the mood of our 80 guest crowd, keeping things classy and original. Hal was professional and provided details of his contracted services prior to the event. He arrived on time, prepared to perform. Book him, you won't be disappointed!
