As professional guitarist for 30+ years, I offer a wide range of musical styles for a moment in time that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime. Having earned my master's degree in classical guitar performance from UNT, I play the standard guitar repertoire including the music of Bach, Tarrega, Albeniz, Barrios, Sor, Guiliani, Mertz, Schubert and Pachelbel for the classical sound that purists desire. If you prefer something more in line with your individual tastes, then I also play jazz standards from composers like Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Henry Mancini and George Gershwin and even classic rock tunes by Led Zepplin, Eric Clapton and the Beatles. Whatever the event, I will mix the music to meet your discriminating needs. From intimate dinner parties to lavish weddings, private birthday parties to grand openings, my music will provide you with the ambiance you seek. I will work hard to guarantee your satisfaction.
A look at my play list will reveal an extensive array of music available, including many classical favorites along with many contemporary tunes. And yes, I can play many of those Spanish and Latin favorites such as Ponce's "Estrellita," the ever popular "Spanish Romance," Albeniz's "Leyenda" and Tarrega's "Recuerdos de la Alhambra". If you don't see your favorite song listed, don't worry, I have an extensive guitar library that probably has your favorite classical or Latin solo in it.
If your taste leans more toward the contemporary genres, I have created sophisticated solo arrangements for numerous clients over the years from artists such as Norah Jones, Billy Joel, Kenny Chesney and even bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Just provide me with the artist and the title of the song and I will use my expertise in music theory and arranging for the guitar to create a unique arrangement that you and your guests will surely enjoy.
If you are needing more variety than a solo guitar can provide, then let master fiddle player David Holcomb and I provide that wider array of moods that will surely add that special touch to your event. David offers many years of expertise in playing styles ranging from the masterful classical violin repertoire to that of bluegrass fiddle tunes and gypsy jazz of Stephan Grappelli.
Having the right equipment allows me to play any venue, from garden weddings where electricity is unavailable to large auditoriums. I even bring my own chair so you don't have to worry about anything. Never will the music be overbearing but mixed just right to provide you with the atmosphere that guarantees that your satisfaction.
