Weddings - Corporate Events - Cocktail Hours - Birthday Parties - Anniversaries

If a small group is what you're looking for, I have some great options for you! An acoustic duo (guitar and female vocalist) can really give life to a wedding reception, cocktail hour, or any kind of party. Elegance and charm are words that come to mind when pairing the classical guitar with another instrument such as a flute or violin, and will make your wedding ceremony unforgettable. When you request your quote from me, be sure to mention the possibility of an acoustic duo or violin-guitar ensemble.

I believe that playing the guitar is not about pressing fingers on frets and plucking strings. In the right hands, the guitar is an incredibly beautiful, graceful, passionate instrument capable of expressing a range of sounds and emotions to which many other instruments can't come close. What it really comes down to is something a teacher of mine calls "the trans-formative power of music," and nothing would bring me more joy than to bring my music to your next event!

Background Info:

A native Mississippian from a family steeped in folk and bluegrass music, I have been playing guitar for nearly 20 years and have studied with some of the greatest players in the classical guitar world, including world renowned guitarist, Eliot Fisk. I studied with Eliot at the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA, where I received a Master of Music degree with Honors. I'm currently based in Denton, TX, where I serve as Adjunct Professor of Guitar at both Mountain View College in Dallas and North Central Texas College in Gainesville.

Our experience with Dan playing for our wedding was over the top! He is a consummate performer and musician who made our day even more special! We highly recommend him to everyone we know, not only is his talent made obvious from the first chord that he plays, but he is courteous and attentive to all aspects of providing his clients with the most exceptional quality of performance that he can give. We would hire Dan again without hesitation!

I hired Dan for our Showroom Grand Opening event, which was Italian themed. He showed up early for set up, dressed very professional, and communicated very professionally. His skill level and variety of music was outstanding, and I received several compliments from our party guests in regards to his music. It was the perfect touch to the evening, and just subtle enough for ambiance music in the background. We will definitely use him again for events in the future, and will pass his name along! Highly recommend.

Dan was fantastic. Everything he played was beautiful, and exactly what I was hoping for in my wedding ceremony and reception. I was so happy with his music, personality, and professionalism. Everyone enjoyed listening to him, from the youngest to the oldest. His interaction with my family was very enjoyable to watch. He was willing to take requests for all types of music, even if he didn't know the song...he sounded it out! I can't say enough good things about how perfect he made the evening with his lovely music playing in the background. I highly recommend Dan and would most certainly use him again in the future. Thank you Dan! Shelley and Mark Shemaria

Dan played during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour on 6/7/14. Both my husband and I were so pleased by his professionalism and talent. He was early, accommodating, and very friendly. We received many compliments on his set during the cocktail hour, and even my friends who are professional musicians were impressed. I truly appreciate how easy he was to get in touch with, and he quickly answered any questions I had in a very friendly and professional way. I would absolutely recommend him; my only complaint is that I didn't get to hear more of his music because we were off taking pictures!

Dan is an extremely talented guitarist. It was a pleasure working with him to plan the music for my daughter"s wedding. He played the songs we selected for the the ceremony and first dance and played and took requests from guests during the cocktail hour prior to the reception. He was very flexible and agreeable to our specific desires for the event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed listening to him play and he added a wonderful touch of class to the evening. I highly recommend Dan.

Dan is amazing and we will be calling him for our company holiday party again next year! From the initial contact until the last note was played, he was professional and personable. He listened to what we would like and played a large range of songs from classics to holiday to contemporary music. It was perfect volume for our small room with a large group of people, and the feedback from our group was very positive. Dan is a fabulous, talented guitarist and he is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!!!

Dan did a great job for our outdoor ranch wedding. He was easy to talk to about the ceremony and what we needed as well as very helpful with suggestions. His music was perfect and just what we wanted. There was a little rain before the ceremony, but he did not let that interfere with his playing. (Someone kindly held an umbrella over him and he continued to play). He did a wonderful job playing for us and I would use him again!

This guy is a true pro. When we initially reached out to him via gigmasters, he called to discuss details right away. He was able to meet prior to our wedding to discuss details and we got a great vibe, and if you look at his videos online, they really speak to his skill. He beautifully performed the songs we requested and I really can't say enough good things about him. There are cheaper options out there, but with Dan we really felt that we got what we paid for.
