About
Brian Bauers has been entertaining at weddings, parties, night clubs and festivals for over 15 years. He covers an extensive list of artists and songs on acoustic guitar as well as piano. Having residencies at some of the most demanding clubs across the country, Brian is ready, willing and able to entertain any crowd, anywhere. He can perform solo acoustic, as well as with other world class musicians as a duo, trio, quartet and beyond.

For larger events and receptions where high energy is preferred, Brian can perform as a one man band utilizing looping technology to create a full band sound complete with guitar solos, bass, beats and harmonies. No matter what type of event you have planned Brian can provide the right entertainment for the occasion.

From Cat Stevens to Jay-Z, Brian Bauers experiments with all kinds of music. Don't mistake him for just another cover / bar musician, though. When you see him live, his personal sound creeps into the covers, which is enough to help listeners re-discover even their own favorite songs.


Here's what other people have to say about Brian:

"Bauers clearly likes to approach rock from multiple angles, which gives him a style-bouncing eclecticism that offsets his pop ambitions."
-Sabu Reyes Kulkarni, Rochester City News

"Brian Bauers delivers his well-written lyrics with passion and arranges and plays his music with an understated maturity,"

"Now would be the time to catch Brian Bauers and (his band) The WMDs, as they sound as fresh and vital as they are focused"
-New York Press

"From Cat Stevens to Jay-Z, Brian Bauers experiments with all kinds of music. Don't mistake him for just another cover / bar musician, though. When you see him live, his personal sound creeps into the covers, which is enough to help listeners re-discover even their own favorite songs."
-Jaime Zublick, Williamsport Sun Gazette

Brian, you did a fantastic job with our wedding! From learning songs that were'nt already in your list of songs, to helping me surprise my groom with one of our "inside joke" songs, everything was perfect! Thank you again. Don't hesitate people, hire Brian Bauers!

We hired Brian for my husband's 35th birthday party after reading his reviews online and listening to his audio samples. He exceeded our expectations on all fronts and took our party to the next level with his expansive offering. What we appreciated most was that Brian was able to take a song and put his own unique twist on it. We would highly recommend Brian to anyone seeking an "acoustic" element to their party and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Brian was amazing and an utmost professional. I requested a specific song which he learned and performed beautifully (I would argue even better than the original). He arrived on time to the event, set up, and played a very special role in making my proposal a magical moment I'll always remember. I will definitely be planning on booking Brian for my wedding in the future!
