Professional Wedding & Event Guitarist / Ukulele for Ceremonies, Rehearsal Dinners, Small Receptions, Vow Renewals, Banquets, Corporate & Private Functions, Bon Fires, Beach Parties and more. Specializing in Beach Weddings & Other Remote Site Events. Offering a Completely Battery Operated 400 Watt Sound System with Wireless Microphones and More ! Now offering 3 different wedding packages which can be seen on our website http://www.thesologuitarist.com From Traditional to Modern music.

Usually, beach weddings and vow renewals have a smaller amount of guest. (less than 50) And afterwards there would be a smaller celebration type of event rather than a full reception. Rather than using recorded music, live music is always nicer. I can always add another musician to beef up the sound and keeping your cost low. Give us a call for more information.

Bill provided music for our Ceremony as well as for our Cocktail Hour. From the initial consultation, through the planning process, and on the day of the wedding - Bill was absolutly amazing to work with. He was responsive in his communication, helpful in providing suggestions when needed, and delivered a beautiful perfomance on our wedding day. Our guests commented on how perfect the music was at the ceremony and how the music at the cocktail hour set the atmosphere well. Bill does have a portable sound system which was helpful for the sound at our beach wedding. Bill is an exceptional talent - both on guitar and vocals - and we feel lucky to have had him be part of our wedding day.

Bill Ricci arrived and set up on time, he listened to our request for quiet background music so that our guests would be able to socialize without a problem. He played and sang songs which we had chosen from his playlist and also songs which we had requested. He had a good singing voice and was friendly and approachable. We had 45 people at our party and everyone seemed to be enjoying the music. I would highly recommend him.

Bill Ricci (The Event Guitarist) was one of my favorite vendors. When we first met with him, we both felt like he was such a pleasantly happy guy. We contracted him that same day and a year later when the wedding date arrived, it felt like we had an old friend playing the music for our ceremony. We actually used Bill for a few other events we hosted prior to the wedding where his music set the tone and the atmosphere for the night. He played our ceremony and cocktail hour and was honestly one of my favorite parts of my wedding. He played Cannon in D on the accoustic guitar for my walk down the aisle and played the ukulele version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow for the bridal party. Just an outstanding job. My guests thought that Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole had come back to life :) I can't say enough about how wonderful Bill was. If you choose him, you will be so glad you did. He was so flexible with the weather and venue which makes things so smooth when there is so much going on. He even played Cannon in D for me again later since I didn't hear it when I was walking down the isle :) He told me that would happen and he was right :) Thank you Bill Ricci!

We had a few non-traditional songs by DMB, Train and Ed Sheeran and he had no problem learning them especially for us! He made our day so special and I would recommend Bill to anyone who asks!!

My husband and I are so pleased with our choice to hire Bill! He was open to whatever ideas I had and he made them great. Also, I really liked that he was so responsive with e-mails. He responded to my questions and e-mails very quickly, which is nice when planning a big event.

Ah, where to start with this review…I can’t say enough about how happy and relieved I am about trusting Bill Ricci with my daughter’s wedding.

I was amazed at how versatile he was with our song selections. I would tell him what we wanted, and he’d assure me that he could do it, but in the back of my mind I wondered how the guy could go from “Canon in D” on the guitar, to “Over the Rainbow” on the ukulele, then on to a back-track of reggae. But with a destination wedding, sometimes all you can do is cross your fingers, read & trust online reviews, and just have faith. But man, did he ever pull it off! He was a few seconds late on the recessional (the back track of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love”), but the song was so appropriate and fun that those few seconds were soon forgotten.

I’ve seen this very same thing (the recessional music delay) happen before, so I highly recommend that you have a plan for the bride and groom to avoid those few seconds of awkwardness (maybe another kiss or a hug and a spin) just in case… Five stars for the Solo Guitarist!

Bill was highly recommended to us by our wedding planner, and we couldn't imagine our ceremony without him. Many of our guests told us they were brought to tears when he played "Can't help falling in love with you" as I walked down the aisle. They said that it was just a perfect moment with perfect music to match. I contacted Bill a few months before the wedding, and he called me right back. He was so excited to tell me about all of his past experiences when playing for other weddings. He is so passionate about music and it is truly a gift that we are all so fortunate that he has chosen to share with the world. He is super friendly and personable. After the ceremony he made sure to come up to me and introduce himself and tell us about his love of rescue dogs. (which made me love him that much more!) It was very nice of him to come speak to us after, as most vendors or whomever usually just get the job done, then take off. He clearly enjoys what he does, and that makes all of the difference in the world. I would reccomend Bill to anyone who would like to have a special ceremony. Having him play the guitar or ukelele gives it a very soft and romantic feel. Your guests will enjoy it while they are waiting for the ceremony to begin, and you couldnt ask for a better way to make your way down the aisle!

Having him play the guitar or ukelele gives it a very soft and romantic feel. Your guests will enjoy it while they are waiting for the ceremony to begin, and you couldnt ask for a better way to make your way down the aisle! Read less

Bill provided the music for our ceremony which was on the beach at Anastasia State Park. Because there is no power source on the beach, Bill provided a battery powered sound system which included a mic for the officiant. Bill played the guitar as our guests arrived and played the ceremony music we requested. He even came to our ceremony rehearsal. The music was beautiful and perfect and the sound system was a must. We highly recommend him! You will not be disappointed.

I did not get to hear most of the music Bill provided for us, but my Bridal March sounded beautiful on the beach! He was very flexible with my needs and budget. Thanks so much for providing pre-wedding cocktail music and ceremony music for us!

The music is one of the best memories of our wedding and thanks to Bill, it still seems like yesterday. Bill not only played at our reception, he did a perfect acoustic set before the ceremony. My wife and I picked out a number of favorites and people still comment on how tastefully and respectfully it was done. Bill Ricci is versatile and talented enough for just about any setting, but I'm also impressed with the business side of dealing with him. You not only get what you pay for, but Mr. Ricci is very straight forward when it comes to scheduling an event. You're dealing with a true experienced professional and I couldn't give him a higher recommendation.

The Solo Guitarist responded with the following comments:

As with all weddings it was a great pleasure to be a part of yours and was excited to work it in my schedule for you on a short notice. I did notice a very slight deduction in the 2 fields, professionalism & flexibility. I arrived an hour before hand, introduced myself to you, the sales manager & your DJ. We made 3 attempts to set up for your outside wedding in between the rain and wind, but when the thunder and lighting happened, the sales manager made the final call to set up indoors. The DJ & I agreed. Dressed in a tux shirt & black pants, I moved everything needed upstairs and worked as a team. I was even moving boxes of items to help the sale manager get your items upstairs. Once the setup was complete and the guest were sent upstairs, I played the song selections that you wanted and the ceremony was underway. I also received many compliments from you and yours guest. I even played a little longer after the ceremony since the guest were still hanging out after the service. I do try very hard to make things work effortlessly. I just wanted to add this for others to read as I take pride in my work and the 5 star rating I have. It was another beautiful wedding, and wish you both all the best !
