About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Sam brings together top-notch playing and singing, a huge repertoire, and a knack for reading the crowd and choosing just the right song for the moment. Always professional, entertaining, and easy to work with, Sam Pointer will bring you complements from your guests. Depending on what's right for your event, he can play solo or bring duo/trio partner(s) on acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass, banjo, piano, drums, flute, and/or female vocals. Check out the video samples (there's an "Acoustic Duo" series, a "Bluegrass Duo Sampler", even a "Christmas Band"). There are also lots of customer reviews and more video samples on his solo profile - just search this site for Sam Pointer. For most audiences, Sam and his duo/trio will play a mix of familiar tunes both old and new, from mellow to rocking as appropriate for the crowd. Sam can also work with you to create the specific atmosphere you want for your event (classic rock? bluegrass? oldies?) , even changing moods if desired. For example, they can provide - instrumental music (Mendelsson's Wedding March, Ode to Joy,…) during a wedding ceremony, - then background music (James Taylor, Duke Ellington,..) during a dinner reception, - then rock out (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Motown,…) to fill the dance floor afterwards. During his 30-year music career, Sam has performed at countless clubs, festivals, and private events, recorded with Grammy winners The Temptations and Emmy winner Christopher Hedge, toured nationwide as a member of New Potato Caboose, won the songwriting contest at Doc Watson's MerleFest, and performed with everyone from Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead) to David Grisman to Black Jacket Symphony. A seasoned veteran of the music business, Sam will provide the perfect entertainment for your event and will be professional and easy to work with!

WeddingReviewed on January 22, 2018From Destin, FL

Sam was way beyond any possible expectations! As an artistic duo, he and his mandolin player were flawless. His song list is expansive and broadly themed and he has mastered it all. He worked closely with my daughter on the playlist and was always available and open to our ideas. Sam even learned a new song for us for the father-daughter dance which was so special and way above and beyond expectations. Are use a true professional and the master. All of the wedding party gives him five stars, but we really feel he deserves more!
