Adam played guitar during our ceremony and cocktail hour and we couldn't be happier with how it went! Instead of giving him a lot of different songs to play, we gave him a feeling we wanted him to create, and he nailed it. He was also willing to accompany a friend of mine to sing me down the aisle, and even though they didn't meet until the day of, it went perfectly. He set the stage for a beutiful ceremony and we got so many compliments on the music. In addition to his talent, Adam was incredibly easy to work with, personable, and full of joy. We felt he was sincerely happy to be included in our day, and that meant a lot to us. Can't recommend him enough!
Two decades of practicing, experimenting, theorizing, and playing with some of the best guitarists in the world have given me this odd ability, and now I can bring you the benefit of it all: personalized, one-of-a-kind, spontaneous music that you and I create together to make your celebration as unique as it is memorable. Your job is easy; all you have to do is give me three "seed" words or phrases for the atmosphere you'd like to create and I do the rest. These can be anything from "adventurous" to "classy & cozy" to "purple!" and I'll make it happen. This process keeps me present and involved with every note I play, and I promise that you and your guests will feel the difference.
Can I learn and perform "traditional" songs? Of course, any song you like in any style: folk, flamenco, funk, pop, jazz, classical, bluegrass, bossa nova, you name it. We'll use these prearranged songs at key moments during your event for that special shot of magic. Life is all about contrast, after all. If you'd like to learn more, hear more, see more, anything like that, just reach out. I'm pretty darn friendly because playing guitar feels amazing and I do it all the time.
Oh, I suppose I should introduce myself.
My name's Adam Baerd. I've had a lucky life, and it shows in my music. I can't wait to share it with you.
