About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

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.

Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on October 25, 2023From West Orange, NJ

We were very lucky to have Aaron perform at our daughter’s 1st birthday party at the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, NJ. He quickly got up to speed on what we were looking for - entertainment that would be suitable for the adults but also interactive with the children (6 mo to 10 yrs old) and on very short notice, he even included songs to fit in with the zoo / safari theme (eg The Lion Sleeps Tonight / Lion King) that may not have been part of his regular repertoire. We received many compliments from our guests and even some who took his card to book him for their events. He is also just an overall nice guy and a pleasure to work with. I hope to book him again!

Aaron Short:

Thank you so much. I really enjoyed the party and I am glad that you and your guests did too!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on December 7, 2022From Howard Beach, NY

Outstanding ! I can’t think of any other word to describe Aarons’s performance . This is the third time I have hired Aaron - and as myself and my friends said in agreement - we can’t think of having an event without him . It would be incomplete . I requested a song that he was not familiar with - the way he performed it - you would honestly think he was playing this song for years. Easy going , professional and just simply amazing ! .
