About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I am a DFW-based classical guitarist and lutenist with over 25 years of performing experience in a wide variety of venues and disciplines. I perform regularly in solo recital as well as for corporate events, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, awards presentations, private house concerts, wine tastings, gallery parties, and events of all kinds. I have given an international solo concert tour, with concerts in Buena Vista and Denver, CO, for the Utah Guitar Society in Salt Lake City, UT, and for the Sacramento Guitar Society in El Dorado Hills, CA, and for the Lute Society of America LuteFest West in Victoria, British Columbia. I have performed at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Kimbell Art Museum, and I've been featured in local media and on High Plains Public Radio. In June of 2023, I released my debut album, "The Ghosts of Dawn". The album is composed of music that is evocative of the night sky, and it was awarded grants from several arts organizations. "The Ghosts of Dawn" features early 19th-century music recorded on an original Viennese guitar built in 1830 and a brand-new suite of music called "Astrolabe" which is dedicated to me, as well as music by Frank Zappa and a Scottish folk song. The album is available on all of the streaming services including Spotify, and in its first two weeks it surpassed 20,000 streams! You can listen to "The Ghosts of Dawn" here: https://open.spotify.com/album/35wsofUqQb3xNlOBA2jZzi?si=CFUbSsnkSom2Erbsk_Oq3A I pride myself on my ability to custom tailor the music for each event, rather than taking a "one size fits all" approach. Instead, I like to get to know the unique needs for each client before the event. Then, on the day of the event, I pay close attention to the room and tailor my set list in the moment in order to more perfectly complement any gathering. In most cases, I can take requests (given at least 30 days notice). I perform on high-quality handmade instruments by J. Perfecto Rubio (San Antonio, TX), Marco Antonio Alfaro Jimenez (Paracho, Michoacan, MX), Mel Wong (San Francisco, CA), and a guitar built in 1830 by an unknown Viennese luthier. When amplification is necessary, I bring top-of-the-line equipment to ensure the best possible sound for each venue. With no less than 7 speaker configurations, I have the perfect tools for every application. You can hear demos of my playing here on The Bash, as well as on my website. There you will also find reviews from past clients, upcoming performances, and images from past events. I look forward to working with you!

Review by Joel S.

Private PartyReviewed on December 10, 2023From Fort Worth, TX

Jacob plays very well and is an incredibly talented musician. However, his business acumen leaves something to be desired. We booked Jacob in the summer of 2023 and secured his services with a half down non refundable deposit for an early December 2023 date. Around September, we needed to adjust the date up 1 week and were unable to get a hold of him through multiple channels. We tried on multiple occasions to reach out to him, but were unsuccessful. I finally reached out to TheBash directly to intervene, and only then did I receive a message from Jacob indicating him being very busy. I did not hear from him again until the night before the event at 9:30pm.

Jacob Johnson, Guitar and Lute:

In July, I agreed to hold both dates until 11-1 at no charge. You reached out over 100 days in advance, while I was hospitalized with COVID. You called the Bash in less than 48 hours. When I explained I'd been ill, you joked about whether it was life-threatening. We spoke again 6 weeks in advance to confirm the date. I texted you at 4pm (not 9:30) the day before the event to confirm the details, which was 24 hours before I was to arrive. At your request, I: wore a wizard costume, learned a new piece of music, brought an extremely rare, 200-year-old museum-quality instrument, played an extra 45 minutes for free, and gave you a complimentary copy of my CD.

Jacob was punctual and did an excellent job as an event planner I have moved him to my vendor referral listing.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on November 8, 2022From Irving, TX

When I submitted my request, Jacob sent me a very thorough response including links to his videos so I could get a taste for his talent and style. I went back with a few questions, including asking for a set list, which he promptly was able to provide, and was perfect for what we were looking for. He played acoustic well-known songs only for our client reception/dinner, and it was exactly what we wished for. A few even commented on his talent. Very happy with Jacob and his professionalism. Highly recommend and I would use him again if we come back to town.
