You want the best music possible for your wedding day. My solo guitar, duos (with violin, flute, sax, piano, bass, etc.) and various larger ensembles will create a musical backdrop that is sure to impress your guests. Whether your desired atmosphere is relaxed, fun and informal or more sophisticated and traditional, my music will set the appropriate mood. I offer repertoires in the following genres... contemporary popular, classical, jazz & standards, Spanish/ Latin American guitar music as well as some traditional Italian & Irish favorites.

I have over 25 years of professional performing experience and pride myself on thorough preplanning and prompt communication with my clients. I provide music for approximately 45 weddings per year. Supplying world class music for your special day is my priority!

Awards - "Couples Choice Award" for 2014, "Bride's Choice Award" for 2013 and "Best of The Knot" in the ceremony musicians category for four years in a row (2014, 2013, 2012 & 2011) - which earned me the even more exclusive "The Knot - Hall of Fame Award" for 2014.

Contact me at 610-287-4280 or visit my website (www.smyser.com) for a large variety of sound samples and further information. Read less

We hired Pete to play acoustic guitar for our wedding ceremony, and he was one of the best vendors we had! When I was researching ceremony musicians online, I was pleased to come across Pete's website, which offers TONS of clips of him playing traditional/modern prelude/processional/recessional songs on his website & YouTube page - this was really important to me, as I didn't want to hire someone without hearing how they play. In all of my communications with Pete, he was extremely prompt to respond, professional, and incredibly thorough and organized - a huge help when you're getting into the chaotic final weeks of wedding planning! On the wedding day itself, our ceremony music was beautiful, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you, Pete!

Pete was fantastic. As an accomplished musician, it was important to me to have high quality music for our wedding, and Pete was everything that I could have hoped for. His musical talents provided the perfect atmosphere for both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. As the bride, I could not have imagined the music for walking down the aisle to be any better.

Pete was amazing. He was responsive to all email and provided a lot of guidance and suggestions as we made plans for the music for our wedding. The music was phenomenal; even better than anticipated. We had a small intimate wedding and sit down dinner, Pete's music provided the perfect backdrop creating a sophisticated evening for all of our guests. Everyone loved the music! When things ran a little longer than anticipated, Pete quickly agreed to continue to play until the end of the event. Pete is friendly, professional and very talented. His prices are competitive and he delivers exactly what he promised. Highly recommend him!

Pete was great to work with and we had so much fun listening to his clips as we chose songs for our cocktail hour. He responded to our emails very quickly, and was very professional. I had the chance to say hi to Pete before I walked down the aisle, he was very nice. My groom and I were lucky enough to make it to our cocktail hour and Pete sounded great. In the weeks after our wedding, while catching up with our friends and family, they mentioned how great the cocktail music was, and Pete was a great guitar player. Everything turned out better than we expected!

We were so lucky to find Pete to provide our wedding ceremony music. He was such a professional from the start. He asked questions I wouldn't have thought to ask to make sure the day went smoothly. From the number of songs in his repertoire, to being able to preview so many on YouTube, to his punctuality and follow-up, we couldn't imagine it going any more smoothly. Our guests loved the music. We strongly recommend him!
