Hey there,

My name is Hunter Dawson and I am an acoustic guitarist for Destin, Panama City & Pensacola, Florida. I have been playing the guitar for a little over 25 years now and I am so blessed to be able to set the tone for the weddings I perform at. I really count it an honor to have that privilge.

My taste and influences span a large spectrum, so to make things a bit more clear, I will attempt to accurately describe my style. I grew up in Hawaii listening to laid-back, flamenco style finger-picking, then moved to Florida when i was around 11 and experienced the '80's....awesome. And since I've surfed my whole life, I have naturally gravitated toward styles like Jack Johnson and Ben Harper. I am not a classically trained guitarist, but I do have quite a few years of great influences under my belt and love to play. I hope you will consider a live musician at your event.......it will be worth it.

Take care,
Hunter Read less

Not only did Hunter make the ceremony VERY personal but he also sang the first song my husband dedicated to me while we were dating. He sang the song better than the original artist! We loved every moment with Hunter and plan on keeping him in our lives FOREVER! Thank you Hunter!

My wedding would NOT have been the same without Hunter's amazing talent! He custom wrote and played the song I walked down the aisle to and it brought tears to my eyes. He is great to work with and really cares about making your ceremony a representation of YOU!!! He is easy to talk to, quick to return phone calls, and really good about giving you a comfort level leading up to your big day knowing everything will play out perfectly. A lasting impression on my wedding! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

Hunter Dawson played during my ceremony and then his band The Common Thread played during the reception.

Hunter Dawson was amazing!! I talked to him on the phone before I booked him for about 45 minutes and realized what a kind, genuine, sincere person he is. The week before my wedding he called me to talk about the type of music I wanted, timeline and breaks, etc. because he cares so much about everyone he works with. He was awesome! My guests kept telling me how much they were loving the band. I would definitely recommend him.

Hunter was awesome! He was very responsive and flexible with our pre-wedding phone calls even though I keep difficult hours. Everyone at the ceremony and cocktail hour loved the music. Thank you Hunter!

Hunter did an amazing job at our wedding and was truly a blessing to work with. We used Hunter during our ceremony (acoustic guitar) and his band during our reception. Our guests had a wonderful time and danced all night long! You will not be disappointed with Hunter and his band.

Words can not possibly describe how wonderful Hunter is as a musician and a person. He was recommended to us by quite a few people and definitely surpassed expectations! Hunter played during cocktail hour, the ceremony, and the reception without slowing down. He had everyone up and moving pretty early in the reception and had quite a few requests to play longer at the end of the night. Music is such a huge part of a wedding and can make or break the reception. Obviously I am a tad biased, but I have yet to attend a wedding with a musician of this caliber who was able to entertain a large group for so long. He is incredibly easy to contact via phone/email/myspace/etc. and kept awesome communication with myself and my family in the months leading up to the wedding. I can't say enough about how great Hunter is! Thanks for everything!!!!

We booked Hunter to play our ceremony and cocktail hour after listening to one of his sets at a local wine bar. He is a talented musician and was willing to learn new songs for our event. I appointed him to create the playlists for the event based on a few suggestions, and he did an excellent job.

Hunter is a brilliant guitarist. He has been playing for over 15 years. He has great taste. I specifically asked him to write me an instrumental song for me to walk down to. The song was perfect. He also worked alongside the DJ we hired to play live music as people walked in and as my bridesmaids walked in. He is extremely talented.
