My husband and I wanted a guitarist for our ceremony and the cocktail hour, but a lot of them were all out of our price range or booked up. We found Eric and are so happy we booked him for the wedding. Eric is not only talented but very professional. The first time we met with Eric, he brought his guitar and amp, so we can get a sense of what the music will sound like on our wedding day. We picked the main songs, and gave him a few songs we liked for the cocktail hour (he filled in the rest with similar selections). Eric even coordinated his outfit with the groomsmen so the color scheme was not distracting.
I definitely recommend Eric to anyone thinking of hiring a guitarist. He is a fabulous guitar player, very professional, responds promptly, and is just a great...
Eric played the guitar for my ceremony and he was wonderful. He is a real doll and his performance was great and he was very easy to work with. I communicated mostly via email and he always responded the same day. If you are looking for a live musician for your event, I would recommend Eric.
We used Eric for the ceremony and cocktail hour at our August wedding. He was fantastic. We got so many compliments on him! Love, love, love. Would highly recommend.
We decided to go with a solo guitarist for our wedding instead of the traditional trio or quartet to save a little money. We found Eric Brown off of gigmasters and contacted him right away. I actually booked Eric before meeting him since I was getting married in Westlake Village but living in SF. Eric was really nice on the phone and also through all our email correspondence. Eric learned a Michael Buble and Jason Mraz song for us to play during our ceremony. I met with Eric before the wedding and we went over the music selection. I thought he did a great job during the day and looked very professional. I would definitely recommend Eric.
Eric did an amazing job at our wedding. It was the perfect touch to the wedding. He was very professional and on time. I had no concerns. He went over different options of music choices with me (over email). He would respond to emails within a day. When I originally heard him at a bridal expo, he was amazing, but I assumed his services were going to be high. But once I looked him up online, his pricing is totally reasonable. I would definitely hire him again. A lot of our friends and family have been asking for his contact information, in case they may need him in the future.
My playlist includes classical music, classic pop and top 40, as well as latin bossa-nova style music. See my website at ceremonytunes.com for a complete playlist.
Can I request a certain song?
Yes. You may request a few songs that you would especially like for your wedding. Advanced notice is always appreciated.
Is there different music for the ceremony and cocktail hour?
Yes. Typically, ceremony music is classical and/or light pop music. You may have specific songs that you would like played at different points in the ceremony: guests arriving, processional, interlude, recessional, guests leaving. For the cocktail hour, more jazz, bossa-nova and top 40 hits can liven things up a bit.
