About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Envision the music that will compliment your upcoming event. Guitarist Brian Slaymaker's engaging personality, musical versatility, and expansive repertoire can bring that vision alive. Brian specializes in classical guitar, but his repertoire includes Rock, Flamenco, Jazz, and Blues. The musician of choice for weddings, corporate events, and concerts, Brian has been performing professionally for over 20 years at venues in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC. Brian Slaymaker started his professional performance career as a rock musician playing lead guitar and bass guitar with rock bands in Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and California. What initially was an interest in classical music became a passion, which led to a Bachelor of Music Degree cum laude in Classical Guitar Performance from George Mason University. Along with his performance schedule, Brian maintains an active teaching studio in Virginia. The Songs on the list are only a sample. Wedding songs are only played at wedding events, unless requested. Testimonials: "Brian Slaymaker is an extremely gifted educator and performer. Brian is equally at home playing and teaching classical repertoire as he is performing classic rock, jazz and blues. Brian's work ethic and professionalism are of the highest possible level and his attention to detail, responsiveness, positive attitude and willingness to go the "extra mile" ensure that the clients needs are always met. As a performer, educator, clinician and contractor of over 30 years I have had the opportunity to hire hundreds of musicians for events. I consistently hire Brian because I know he will provide his absolute best to every client every single time." Glenn Dewey-Executive Producer of Mason Music Productions, Bassist for "The President's Own US Marine Band", and Professor of Music at George Mason University.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 30, 2024From Washington, DC

Working with Brian to set up the perfect ceremony set-list was the easiest and most conforming aspect of my entire wedding planning. Brian was always available to chat or email about the songs we wanted. In once instance, Brian learned the song we sent him while we were on the phone and it sounded great even over the phone. I could not recommend Brian enough based on the sound, experience, and price point. 10/10, 5 stars out of 5.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 14, 2024From Shady Side, MD

Working with Brian was delightful, from the very first communications to the end of our event. Brian was always very responsive to our questions and provided a “setlist” that was perfect for our event. Brian was dressed perfectly for the occasion and was very professional throughout the event. His excellent guitar skills and his wide music repertoire were a perfect fit for the tone and setting of our wedding ceremony and celebration. The sound system that he used worked perfectly, and he moderated the volume to fit the flow of our celebration. We highly recommend Brian.

FuneralReviewed on June 11, 2024From The Plains, VA

Brian created the right music for the occasion with modest feedback. He played while people gathered, in the church ceremony, and in the background for the reception. My father was wholly impressed with his talent as were others - I received many positive comments on Brian's music. Brian is personable - a great guy and I would hire him again in an instant! Highly recommend.
