October 2015 will be my last month on Wedding Wire. Wishing you All The Best !

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.billricci.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.

Planning a destination wedding can be tough - but being in the hospitality business, my current husband and I were up to the challenge. Once we had selected our wedding venue, the search for additional vendors began and The Solo Guitarist was the first one we contracted.

After our initial communications with him, we could sense his professionalism. We also appreciated that he would deliver on any song selection that was requested without additional fees. We knew we would likely not be requesting traditional wedding songs for our ceremony, so knowing in advance that we were not being restricted to a pre-determined song list was comforting.

Bill was contracted to play both ceremony and cocktail hour which were being held in two different locations, one following the other. He arrived on-site the day of the wedding with plenty of time to set-up and ask any questions of our on-site wedding coordinator prior to the ceremony beginning. He honored all of our music requests, even the one the bride e-mailed him with at 1:30am that morning.

We truly appreciate Bill’s dedication to our event and could not have asked for more!

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!

Bill did an amazing job at our ceremony and reception! The most impressive part is that he learned all of our songs for our ceremony. 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!!
