Michael Charles Smith, a marimba soloist, composer, and teacher, has been performing his original compositions at weddings and special events for the past 15 years throughout the Pacific Northwest. Specializing as a wedding ceremony musician, Michael has accompanied more than one hundred brides down the aisle, both indoors and outdoors. Not like other wedding musicians, Michael can play your favorite song or compose something special for the occasion. Your wedding ceremony music is like the soundtrack for that perfect moment, and marimba adds a soothing, enchanting organic sound to your special day. Although marimba was a relatively unfamiliar instrument to many, Michael has introduced scores of listeners to the aural and visual treat that marimba provides and has developed quite a following in the process.

Just wanted to say what a pleasure it was having Michael play at our Wedding! The communication while getting things set up was awesome. He even made time to communicate while he was on his Honey moon. Very Professional. I would definitely recommend having Michael play at your next event. Thanks again Mike!

Michael Charles Smith's marimba music was the perfect accompaniment to a classy, elegant wedding ceremony. Michael played for 30 minutes before the ceremony started, setting the stage for arriving guests. Michael adapted a song of our choosing to the marimba for the ceremony and it turned out beautifully. I couldn't have been happier with his performance and received numerous comments on how ideal the ceremony music was (especially for the outdoor setting) from all my friends and family. Thanks again Michael!

Michael Charles Smith is the best. we couldn't have hoped for a better ceremonial musician to join us in creating the most enchanting, lovely ceremony we could have dreamed of. Michael illuminated the room with an original marimba composition he composed for our wedding which was performed during our candle-lighting ceremony. His music is beautiful, warm, romantic, unobtrusive, of-the-heart. The perfect instrument and musician to underscore the delicate mood and balance of the event. Memorable, and wonderful. His processional music is stunning, and makes everyone look and feel their best. Highest of recommendations.
