Greg did a fantastic job at our wedding! Throughout the whole process, he was a true professional. He checked in with us several times before the big day to nail down all of the details, and he provided thoughtful feedback on song selections. It is a pleasure to listen to him play and we got so many compliments! We would hire him again in a heartbeat and felt that he added so much to the atmosphere of our event. Thank you Greg!

Here'a what a few of his fellow musicians say:
"Greg Smith has a warmth to his playing and his sound that is unique. His phrasing caresses you like a hug from an old friend." --- Chick Corea
"Greg is a great guitar player; he's got great technique, fabulous ideas, and his sense of timing is right on the mark." ---Larry Coryell
"I play acoustic steel string, nylon and electric guitars. I l love playing, it's my favorite thing to do. I can play all kinds of music; standards, jazz and pop tunes, bossa-nova and Latin, folk, new age and blues to name the main categories. I know 100's of tunes and I can play non-stop for hours. All you need to do is let me know what type of music you want to hear and I'll do the rest.
I can create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding ceremony and reception. I also play for private parties, corporate functions, art openings and museums.
Instrumentals are the main focus of my performances but I can sing and have many standards and pop tunes with vocals if desired.
I look forward to giving you the perfect music to create the atmosphere you desire."
