About
Hello! I play solo classical guitar and 70's 80's classics...
I've studied music with the world's greatest artists, attended three major universities on scholarship, and my performances have led me to the stages of numerous festivals, guitar competitions, and universities throughout North America. I was voted "Best Of Gigmasters 2015"
Also... I have hours of classical repertoire spanning 500 years from all around the world, and recently completed unique new: Bowie, Beatles, Elton John, Elvis, Doors, Baez, and many others- SOLO music arrangements AND some voice accompanied if requested..
I also have a "guitar synthesizer" that can reproduce/emulate any orchestral instrument magically,or piano, if needed-- for special arrangements and performances!!

I am available for live performances at:
Private/Salon Recitals
Wine/Tapas Parties
Receptions
Art Exhibits/Openings
Funerals
Charity Events/Benefits.
Weddings
Corporate Functions


Weddings: I have performed wedding processionals, recessionals and receptions since 1998, and am available to provide a variety of lovely sacred or secular music to make your special day perfect. No matter what the location is, I can provide quality music to be remembered.
During 2003-2005 I worked and resided in Key West FL, and have provided music on beaches, remote islands, the Ernest Hemingway Home, and even performed for services while sailing on the Western Union- one of the last surviving schooners in the world.

Art Events: Stylistically appropriate improvisation offered for special events: ambient, avant-garde, mystical, primitivism, and minimalist styles covered.

Dinner Functions: Elegant and lovely music performance available to make any evening magical, romantic and unforgettable.

Charity events: Inquire about free performances for worthwhile causes and charities.

Funeral Services: Somber and mournful music is available for funeral services.
Special arrangements of a loved one's favorite song are also available.

Contact with your needs and I am sure I can meet them! See my website or contact me personally, for more information.

Neil played Spanish guitar selections at the cocktail hour of my wedding reception. It was the perfect backdrop as guests filtered into the dining hall. All of my guests loved Neil. Thankfully I was able to hear the last half hour or so of Neil's performance and was very happy with what I heard. Super talented, very professional, and a great addition to my wedding. He helped add to the laid back vibe I was trying to achieve with my reception. Thanks, Neil!

Neil was such a wonderful asset to my daughter's post wedding party. It was an outdoor event, and he was prepared for everything. I just let him pick the music for most of the time and his selection was spot on. My brother is a music professor at a university and he commented on how good Niel was. He is a great musician, a very personable and likeable man, and he can play multiple genres of music. We stuck mostly with classical guitar, but he seemlessly "switched it up" from time to time and also played requested styles without hesitation. I plan to ask him to play at other events in the future - he is fantastic! Thank you Neil!
