About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Jon Walters specializes in solo guitar work for any occasion. Jon creates the perfect atmosphere for events of all sizes with his diverse set lists and ambient style. Though his main idiom is classic jazz and standards, Jon can also bring a fresh approach to popular tunes and classical pieces as well. Jon can perform unaccompanied for a warm, ambient, and mood-setting feel (perfect for weddings or more intimate events) or play to quality backing tracks to provide the sound of a full band at the cost of a solo performer. Jon is experienced with all stages of event planning, from working with vendors to performing for wedding ceremonies or just setting a great mood so the party runs smoothly. Jon is a respected local guitarist known for his work with the ensemble the 'Third Coast Jazz Band' and the 12-piece big band 'Swing Shift.' Jon is also available for sub work and regularly sits in with other groups around the San Diego area, in addition to his solo guitar work. Duo/trio and group performances are also available. Other points to ponder when considering Jon for your event: Jon is a consumate professional who comes with excellent references. He is reliable, courteous, well-dressed, and easy to work with. He has performed for events of all sizes, from back yard birthday events to The Academy Awards/Oscar's pre-party event in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Jon has performed for celebrity weddings, such as the wedding of Leanne Rimes in 2011 and Chad Lowe in 2011 and can be seen playing weekly at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, CA for the A.R. Valtien Restaurant. Always up for new challenges, Jon is willing to try special arrangements of your favorite tunes and never charges extra for multiple performance locations or early set-ups.

Review by Tracy S.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 5, 2018From La Jolla, CA

We're so glad we chose Jon for our wedding ceremony and reception. Jon and Third Coast Jazz were extremely professional. They arrived on time, set up quickly, and were dressed nicely. They are very talented, and allowed us to make specific requests for special times during our wedding. They played at an ideal volume, which allowed everyone to enjoy both the music; and their conversations in our intimate venue. All of our guests couldn't say enough about how much they enjoyed the music! We loved hearing so many of our jazz favorites, and didn't want our reception to come to an end! Thank you Jon for adding to our perfect day! We highly recommend him for any occasion!!

Anniversary PartyReviewed on March 3, 2018From San Diego, CA

Jon was so great! He came and played for my parents 60th anniversary dinner. He learned songs we wanted played that he didn't already know. He is incredibly talented, very nice/pleasant to work with. He came early to set up . We all were very impressed and he made the night even more special. I would recommend home to anyone.
