Words can not express the happiness I feel about having Bret Huotari play at our wedding. He completely set the tone for cocktail hour and dinner, playing unbelievable renditions of songs that everyone knew and enjoyed. He transitioned seamlessly from song to song. Countless times throughout the night people approached me asking where I found the band and how blown away they were with the talent. I literally enjoyed the live performance from start to finish. It was one of the best things I booked for the wedding, it would not have been the same without them there. Beautiful singers, amazing talent, and true performers. Could not be a happier Bride. Speechless.
Over the past couple years I have performed at hundreds of gorgeous venues across the Midwest, and had the opportunity to grow my knowledge and share it with other musicians from many different backgrounds, as well as learn from them. I've organized and rehearsed with many different instruments under short time constraints and love the challenges I'm faced with each new request.
Fast forward to the now: I'm performing public shows either at festivals or bars with my musicians friends or sometimes solo. I love performing ceremonies and cocktail hours at weddings. I also hire DJ's independently for couples, and oversee the day of the event. This way I get to work with people who have a great track record and also the client only has one person to trust.
Along the way of playing shows, I found that trust is peace of mind and that people are willing to pay more for a service if they know the job will get done right and they don't need to worry.
If you want to book me for your event, but you have a bunch of questions, feel free to just ask away. We can work together to organize exactly what you want.
Price: I treat every show differently depending on rehearsal time, distance, number of people, venue and some more factors. We can figure out a fair price two different ways: You can tell me what your looking for and what your budget is and I can design the best sounds around that, or you can tell me what you need and Ill shoot you a quote back. Either way works for me.
Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about me, I look forward to working with you!
