About
Great Acoustic music – the best of the vintage sounds - from a wide range of genres - standard classical wedding pieces, jazz, country, R&B, pop, folk, and rock. I have extensive experience in both instrumental only solo guitar (for wedding ceremonies, fine dining, cocktail hours, business events)- AND a more upbeat performance with vocals for parties, restaurants and other venues seeking a fun upbeat atmosphere. If you wish I will bring my Jukebox Junction Song Menu - so your guests can choose from the time-tested hits that all age groups love like the classics from * Johnny Cash * Frank Sinatra * James Taylor * Tony Bennett * Willie Nelson * The Drifters * Beatles and money more. My vocal sets are entertaining with a lot of audience participation where appropriate.

Please take a look at some the recommendations from past clients to get a good sense of the professionalism I bring to each event. I have done hundreds of gigs in the VA/DC area over the past 13 years, and have played public and private gigs at venues such as The Kennedy Center, Twins Jazz, Laporta's Restaurant and Lounge, Smithsonian Museum, Tin Whistle Irish Pub, as well as many wineries, breweries, weddings etc.

I also have extensive experience and referrals from retirement villages, assisted living homes, and nursing and rehab centers. Call or email for more details about these shows.

We hired Stan for my sister's 25th wedding anniversary. He was on time, professional, easy to work with and flexible. He blends with people easily and breaks the barrier between performer and audience. This is the first time we hosted an event like this and our guests really liked his performance and the event was a big hit. I would definitely recommend him for any event.

We used Stan for our ceremony music for our outdoor wedding a few weeks ago and he was fantastic to work with! He was very responsive on email and has a large selection of songs in his repertory from all different genres, he also was willing to learn I believe two new songs if we requested but he ended up already knowing the song I wanted. He was such a nice guy, on time, well dressed and even brought his own wireless speaker since we were outdoors. He was also willing to travel to our venue all the way down in Williamsburg for just an hour of playing! I wasn't able to hear the pre-ceremony music but my guests said he was fantastic and created perfect ambiance!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Stan, and I am so glad he was a part of our wedding! He was always very accessible in the months leading up to the wedding and learned several new songs at our request so we could have some of our favorites and personally sentimental selections playing as we walked down the aisle. He sent all new selections to us beforehand so we knew what they would sound like, too which was great! He did a fabulous job the day of, was very professional and cordial with us and our planners and guests. Thank you for making our day so special! The guitar was a perfect addition and we are so appreciative of all your hard work and talent!!

We absolutely can not say enough about Stan! He was extremely communicative before, during and after the event. He was completely accommodating to our every question and request. Did we mention talented with an enormous repertoire? He was completely professional and guided our reception with great expertise. Our guests provided us so many compliments about Stan's presence and performance for days after the event! We had a unique group of folks at our event and he never missed a beat! You made our day Stan!
