About
Perfect in every aspect. His professionalism was second-to-none and his talent/ability unquestionable. He played a variety of songs all to our taste and liking as previously discussed prior to the wedding. All in all we could not have been happier with Sam's professionalism and kind nature. We would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a guitarist. Perfect! Thank you, Sam.

I love playing my guitar for people, be it a small, intimate get-together of 20 or so people or a large celebration of 200 or more guests. My repertoire of Spanish Guitar music, Brazilian Bossa Novas, South American Tangos, and Salsa tunes will appeal to listeners both young and not-so-young. Accompanied by a backing track of additional acoustic guitars and light percussion, I play instrumental music that is upbeat, fun, and very romantic. A number of tunes may even give you the urge to dance! It is always my goal to have your special event: wedding, birthday party, anniversary party, dinner party, be just as upbeat, fun, romantic and memorable.
I love taking requests. If I know it I'll play it, if not, then with a little advanced notice, I will be more than happy to learn it. I can work on short notice, no problem with travelling, own all of my equipment including a small sound system. To see and hear samples of my playing, take a quick look/listen to some of my recordings that are featured on this page. Any questions, feel free to contact me directly.

Thank you

Perfect in every aspect. I only briefly had chance to say hello to Sam (being the groom I was extremely busy all day) which was a shame as he came across as a genuinely decent and pleasant guy. His professionalism was second-to-none and his talent/ability unquestionable. He played a variety of songs all to our taste and liking as previously discussed prior to the wedding. Sam was quick to reply to any emails we sent him and more than accommodating to our requests. All in all we could not have been happier with Sam's professionalism and kind nature. We would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a guitarist. Perfect! Thank you, Sam.
