MUSIC FOR CEREMONIES: Guitarist in the classic style with varied repertoire possibilities. I also feature music for Flute and Guitar, Oboe and Guitar, Harp and Guitar and other combinations. Aside from a standard acoustic guitar I use a midi guitar (synthesized guitar) which can imitate other instruments or create sound effects. Both instruments are totally portable and equipped with battery operated amplification systems. So, for example, if you had an outdoor wedding but wanted the feel of a church wedding I could play the wedding march using an organ sound.

SUBSIDIARY OFFERINGS: Cocktail and Dinner hour music, Sound system rental - Create an IPod mix for dancing! Read less

We had a small (just under 30 guests) wedding & lunch time reception in an intimate space & I was in a quandry as to what we should do about music. I found Russ' information on Wedding Wire & contacted him about playing guitar before the ceremony, as the guests assembled, and during 'cocktail hour.' He couldn't have been nicer or easier to work with- what a wonderful experience we had with him, from start to finish! We didn't have any special songs that we wanted played, so we just explained the age group of the people who'd be attending, time of day, atmosphere we were aiming to create, and he took care of the rest. So many of our guests (some of whom are musicians themselves) told me how much they enjoyed the beautiful music and that they felt it added so much to their enjoyment of the day. And mine, too! It really was perfect. Russ made our 'special day' even more special!

We hired Russ to play acoustic guitar for our outdoor wedding ceremony, and we absolutely loved him! Russ is a talented musician who has been playing for many years--we met Russ through our church, where he plays on Sundays. Russ met with us to discuss the music, and he was really flexible with regard to the songs we chose. He can really play anything! He gave us good suggestions on the sorts of music to choose based on his long experience (for example, a full long song as a processional isn't the best idea, because what if you get there sooner or later than when the song ends?). We picked some non-traditional choices (my parents walked me in not to the bridal march, but to the "Legend of Zelda" theme!) but Russ went with it and did a great job. His playing was so beautiful and so perfect--it was exactly what I wanted and it made me so happy. I can't recommend Russ more highly.
