About
Aaron Short is a British musician who performs totally live with acoustic guitar and voice. He was a regular on the UK gig and Wedding circuit for 12 years before relocating to NYC. When in England he worked with clients including L'Oréal and performed over 100 weddings and private parties as well as performing at most of the bars and clubs in London!

It did not take long to replicate this success in New York where he now resides and plays regularly at least 4 times a week at venues in the Manhattan area (please see gig list for details). Playing songs from Pop, Rock, Country and Jazz he is also available as a duo or 3/4/5 piece band.

So far he has played many birthday parties and weddings and the reviews can be seen right here on gig masters. Notable gigs so far include a performance for 'Lucky Brand Jeans', the Javits Exhibition Center for the Reed Expo 2014 and Boots the chemist (UK based pharmacy). He has also met one of LA's premier Wedding Proposal planners through the site and continues to work with them on a regular basis.

Aaron is self-contained and professional as well as liability insured. His music can also vary from background cocktail style music to a high-energy party involving communication with the audience. Of course he is also able to judge this himself and will always guarantee a fantastic performance at any event.

Aaron was AMAZING!!! Aaron was easy to work with and very accommodating. He was an AMAZING talent and covered his artists perfectly, some songs even better than the original!!! Aaron was happy to learn 2 new songs that we requested and performed them beautifully. You can hire Aaron with confidence that his performance will meet or exceed your expectations. Aaron also has great presence and is fun to watch! Thank you Aaron! You were the star of the show! All the best, John & Monte

Aaron was fantastic to work with! He connected with us by phone prior to the event to talk through all the details and assure that he was familiar with the demographic of the audience and the needs of the event. He was extremely professional, well presented and communicative. The guests all loved the music; he provided a fantastic upbeat soundtrack to underscore our event. We would absolutely work with him again at any opportunity that arises.

Aaron was great! I booked him to perform at my 5 yrs old son's b-day. I wanted him to entertain the kids as well as the adults and he did just that. He came early to go over what I would like from the performance. He was very entertaining. Both kids and adults enjoyed his singing and playing. He was accomodating and friendly. Aaron has a great voice and overall a great entertainer! He had the kids jumping and dancing. Would highly recommend him!

I would highly recommend Aaron for your event. I am a Marriage Proposal Planner and I was looking for a singer and guitarist that could sing/play a specific song. He didn't know the song but assured me he could learn it. I told him that my client wanted to see a video of him singing it when he did learn it. I think it was the same day, he already learned the chorus and uploaded the video for my client. He was very responsive and he showed up to our event early enough to catch our early arriving client! My client and the photographer both raved about Aaron and I will be hiring him again.

Aaron was fantastic to work with and really made our event memorable. He pleased our youngest guests (ages 2-6) as much as he did the adult crowd. He happily accommodated my last-minute requested additions to his song list. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

We had 20 children and 20 adults at our 9 year olds birthday party and everyone responded to Aaron's music! The kids danced, the grown ups hummed along - he played a great range of songs, and played them all so well. He is a talented musician and excellent at reading the crowd. He made our party 10x times better than it would have been without him. Multiple friends told me they would love to hire him and we hope to have him for another event in the future. Thank you, Aaron!
