About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Currently in steady rotation on internet radio stations that include CD101.9, Smooth Jazz NYC, Smooth Jazz Mix New York, Radio Guitar One, Smooth Jazz DC to name a few, Art Boffi, is a New England based jazz guitarist that has been sparking interest and turning heads since arriving on the local music scene several years ago. What makes this musician so unique is his well thought out arrangements, and the creative intertwining of musical ideas on each piece he plays. Not one to rely on electronic devices to create background accompaniment, Art possesses a sophisticated harmonic sense and the ability to create melody lines, rhythm and bass figures, and when appropriate, percussion sounds which adds fullness not usually associated with unaccompanied guitar. Art is currently in steady rotation on internet radio stations that include CD101.9, Smooth Jazz Oasis, Smooth Jazz Mix New York, Radio Guitar One, to name a few. Whether it is a modern take on jazz standard or a jazzy twist on a popular tune, his complete mastery of 'fingerstyle' technique brings a remarkable new quality to the art of solo guitar playing.

Review by Mathew B.

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on October 11, 2014From Topsfield, MA

Very professional, showed up early and drove a long way to do so. Knocked it out of the park with his performance. Great job all around

FundraiserReviewed on February 21, 2014From Narragansett, RI

Art B. did a wonderful job, was professional and accommodating. He knew exactly what to play to keep the crown engaged without me having to even ask or make suggestions. He was a wonderful performer all around.
