From the moment we first talked with Thomas, we knew he was the perfect match for our style. He not only specializes in classical songs but he also plays classics! After our wedding, we had people telling us how lovely the music was during our cocktail hour. What was most special to me however, was how Thomas learned a song special for my walk down the isle, All My Days, by Alexi Murdoch. He had no sheet music to learn it by, so he learned it by ear for us... and he learned it in under a week. He made me a very happy bride and my husband a very happy tearful groom ;) It came out so beautiful. I couldn't say enough good things about him!

Q: How much experience do you have performing at events?

Q: What are you rates?
A: It depends on several factors. Length of playing time, travel distance, time of year, day of the week, nature of the event, etc. Please request a free quote.
Q: How far in advance should we book you?
A: For peak event months I would suggest a year in advance. I will often get multiple requests for the same date.
Q: Do you accept last minute bookings?
A: Yes, if I am available. Please refer to my calendar for specific availability.
Q: What kind of music do you play?
A: It depends on the specific event. I customize my playlist to fit the needs of my clients. I can cover a wide array of different styles on nylon string classical and steel string acoustic guitar including: Classical, Folk, Jazz, Latin, Rock, Pop, and more. I work very closely with my clients to select the most appropriate mix of music. Please check out my audio samples for just a small sampling of what I can do.
Q: Do you have a song list and can we tell you what to (and what not to) play?
A: Yes and Yes. Scroll all the way down the page to see my set list. I realize that not every client is going to like every artist or song I cover. I welcome clients to create "play and don't play"
Q: Some of your recordings sound like there are multiple guitar parts, how are you doing that?
A: I use a Boss RC-20XL Loop Station pedal on certain songs. This device enables me to layer multiple guitar parts during a live performance. The end result sounds like an entire ensemble is playing with just a single guitar. And I of course perform pure solo guitar pieces as well. Check out my videos and audio recordings for examples of each style.
Q: Can you perform on a beach or other outdoor venues?
A: Yes, I love to perform at outdoor venues. I have a battery powered sound system for such occasions.
Q: What is the significance of the GigMasters Star Rating?
A: I have earned a 5 Star Rating. I am in the top 5% out of a universe of 10,000 entertainers here.
Q: If I book you, will you provide a contract.
A: Yes, absolutely.
Q: My venue requires insurance for outside vendors, do you have any?
A: Yes, I can provide a certificate of insurance if required.
Q: Do you have references?
A: I have dozens of client reviews and testimonials. Please take some time to read them
