About
Tasteful, elegant and delightful. George's performances have been called just that and can add a touch of style to your event. 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.

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.

I would highly recommend George Smith. He performed at our rehearsal dinner in Redondo Beach. He was very professional and responsive in all of our email exchanges leading up to the event. He arrived early, started the performance on time, and was dressed appropriately. Our guests enjoyed the music and it really added to the ambiance of the evening.

George is an exceptionally talented musician. He played for us at our wedding during the ceremony & reception and engaged in conversation about jazz music with one of our guests who also plays in a jazz band. What a nice young man. He is professional and cordial. We hope he will be successful with many more events on his calendar. Sincerely, Terry & Jeannie Darnell

George was a fabulous addition to my wedding. Very prompt in returning both e-mails and phone calls, as well as reasonably priced. He was the only music we had, and honestly the only thing we needed. George arrived early and left late with no complaints. He was professional in all aspects and very accommodating -- the ceremony started 45 minutes late, the sun was beating down, he was asked to change locations, and yet there was nothing but a relaxed smile on his face. We are very pleased and highly recommend him.

George Smith performed at my wedding, both with a jazz trio at our cocktail reception and on solo classical guitar for our ceremony. He was incredibly easy to work with and extremely professional. He accommodated all of our specific song requests, and he showed up early to our event and started right on time. In addition, the guests were very impressed with his jazz band! The event coordinator at our wedding location actually asked us for his contact information so she could recommend him for future events. I would highly recommend George Smith and his jazz trio to anyone planning an event.
