About the musicians:
Arrested Moment is a Jazz group composed of professional musicians of the highest caliber. Our broad repertoire covers quintessential Jazz standards, Brazilian Bossa Nova and Samba classics and timeless Pop and Rhythm & Blues songs.

George began his classical guitar studies at the age of 13 at the famed Apollon Conservatory of Music in Greece. The following year he was already performing in student recitals and immersed himself in the study of Jazz on the electric guitar. George attended the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy summer session in Michigan at age 16, and was accepted at USC's Thornton School of Music as a Studio/Jazz Guitar major the following year. George has studied and played with some of the finest musicians in the world. He has performed professionally for over 12 years and has extensive stage and studio credits.

From the beginning, George was so personable and quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. He accomodated all my special requests and made our wedding an event that we will never forget! Their talent added a uniqueness that our guests especially enjoyed. Much better than a DJ with prerecorded songs! Absolutely a delight to work with! Thank you George! :-)

We loved it. We had sax, drums, bass and guitar. They played Miles Davis along with other great blues. They accommodated every request and delivered beyond expectation. George, thank you so much for an incredible night of music. Everyone loved your band. All our best to you and yours and thanks again for delivering more then we had imagined. Best Regards, Clay & Catherine Burton
