We asked Randy to play at a private winery event we were holding. He played all day and our guests completely enjoyed his music. His variety of styles fit the mood throughout the day and elevated the guest experience. As a matter of fact, we were so pleased that we asked him to return the very next weekend for another public winery event. We received many outstanding compliments from guests as well as staff. His music was just right for the event and really made a great impact. He was professional, courteous, friendly and prepared. We would recommend him and hope to have him play for us at other events.
Randy Hartley's solo guitar playing will definitely make you smile. His presentations are always family friendly, tasteful and clean, age appropriate, full of humorous stories and rants, and unpredictable. He has one of the largest solo guitar repertoires in the world.
If you enjoy Chet Atkins and other fingerstyle guitarists, you will definitely want to hear Randy's performance.
His song list includes pop, rock, country, jazz, gospel and hymns, classical, TV and movie themes, original compositions, blues, alternative, free form improvisations, flamenco, bluegrass, and Celtic-influenced flavors.
He arranges songs for guitar so that accompaniment is not necessary. Randy uses a foot-operated device that can layer any number of parts played on the spot. He adds percussion sounds played on the guitar so that there is an impression of an entire group performing.
