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, California, and New York.

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.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on August 6, 2016From Potomac, MD

We had a fabulous experience with Brian Slaymaker! He was very professional and a fantastic performer. He had a great selection of songs and was willing to go any direction we wanted. He was the icing on the cake for our party and the guest complimented his playing. If we had another party Brian would be my go-to! So glad I found him.

Brian Slaymaker:

Jamie, Thank you so much for the nice review! That made my day! Awesome party! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Brian
