EARLY BOOKING ALERT: Scott Sanchez is one of our most popular guitarists. Book him early before his schedule is full!

TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD HIRE SCOTT SANCHEZ:

1. Reasonably Priced - The solo finger-style guitar is capable of producing rich sounding arrangements of your favorite music and can create the effect of many musicians playing simultaneously. It is an advantage to your budget to hire Scott, because as a solo instrumentalist, you will not have to pay for the high price of a band or larger ensemble. It is just Scott and his guitar. Also, there are no hidden fees for his services. Once a price is agreed upon, you will not be told later that Scott "forgot" to mention the price of something. All administrative costs (i.e. preparing the contract, e-mail and phone correspondence, working directly with the caterer or event planner if necessary, etc.) are included in fee.

2. Professional - Scott returns e-mails, phone calls and texts promptly (check out his great reviews) and is always easily accessible throughout the planning process. During your event, he will arrive early to set-up his equipment and will be dressed appropriately for your occasion.

3. Volume Control - Scott has a great sound system that makes it possible for him to be heard. Not so loud that your guests will be drowned out by his sound, but loud enough to be listened to at an enjoyable level. Also, if you need to make announcements, or you have an officiant who needs amplification, you are welcome to hook into his amplifier. This is one less hassle you have to worry about when planning your event.

4. Versatility - Your musical desires are important to Scott, and he will be happy to learn music that you request. He loves music, and plays many different styles from classical to modern contemporary popular music and all points in between. If you have a special song or piece of music that you would like him to arrange for guitar, just ask, and he can make it happen. As an experienced classical, rock and jazz musician, he can also perform on nylon string and steel string guitar.

5. Commitment - Music is like breathing for Scott and he greets each musical event as a unique opportunity to share his love and passion. He will give you his very best to help make your special occasion the wonderful experience you deserve!

Scott was a true gentleman, professional and true talent. He played for our cocktail hour after our wedding and his playlist and quality of music is u paralleled! The guests were talking about his music all evening and it truly added to the elegance of our Boston North End wedding.

Scott was perfect! Everyone at the wedding complimented us on how great the music was. Even though he is the Jimi Hendrix of classical guitar; Scott was super easy to work with and made our wedding extra special. Thanks again Scott, we can't thank you enough! -Neil and Samantha

Put simply, Scott was perfect. He showed up early, stayed late, and played beautiful acoustic guitar arrangements of modern songs for our ceremony and cocktail hour. As an added bonus, he helped to mike our officiant, so he not only stepped in when needed, he actually went above and beyond. If you want a musician who is an expert in his craft, I HIGHLY recommend choosing Scoot for your occasion. If I could give Scott six stars, he would be deserving. Well done, Scott!!

Scott was easy to work with, accommodating of everything we wanted even with a last minute change, arrived early to set up and played beautifully. Our guests loved his music and it made walking down the aisle that much more special! He also had a mic for our officiant which saved us another to-do :) We highly recommend him!

Scott Sanchez's performance at our wedding reception was just perfect. He played guitar for about 50 people at an old farm house. His music created the perfect mood: up beat, romantic, nostalgic, intimate. Scott was professional, accommodating, and talented. We highly recommend Scott Sanchez.
