About
JUST JAZZ GUITAR Magazine called his most recent 7 string solo guitar recording "A real gem...a fine performance by a talented arranger and performer".

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH wrote his music "swings from crisp bluesy numbers to nimble jazz workouts". Columnist Fritz the Nite Owl noted his "moving, thought-provoking, mood-inducing music - played superbly, with a gentle swing throughout."

JAZZ IMPROV Magazine wrote "Mark's jazz playing stands out...he far exceeds expectations in his treatment of chord-melody".

THE LONG BEACH (California) SEABREEZE noted "Mark Williams adds a unique, soft ambiance."

Mark Williams has over 40 years' professional experience as a guitarist, composer, arranger, recording artist and teacher. His mastery of the instrument is demonstrated every time he performs. Career highlights include live radio broadcasts from Los Angeles and concert performances with the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra, as well as extensive work in night clubs, fashion shows and wedding ceremonies throughout Ohio. He has performed at the Athletic Club in Downtown Columbus, and regularly appears as a solo artist at the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club. Other recent engagements include the Grand Ballroom in the Columbus Hyatt Regency, Soine Vineyards in Powell, OH, and the lobby of the John Glenn International Airport.

His Gigmasters' Profile Picture was taken at his 2016 performance at Trattoria in Florence, Italy, in the Duomo Center.

Mark plays the 7 string electric-acoustic guitar. The additional string has tones extending far into the bass range for a fuller sound than possible on a 6 string guitar. Booking Mark for your event is like hiring both a guitarist and a bass player for the price of only one musician! Be sure to check out the audio recordings of Mendelssohn's THE WEDDING MARCH and the Beatles' MICHELLE, as well as the music video of Christina Perri's A 1000 YEARS on this site to hear Mark on this remarkable and unique musical instrument.

Mark was featured on 6 and 7 string guitars as well as arranger on jazz saxophone legend Chuz Alfred's recording A COLLECTION OF JAZZ FAVORITES FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART, of which over 16,000 units were sold. Mark has also released two solo acoustic guitar recordings under his own name: HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE and WINTER NIGHT SUITE, and has recorded several CDs with the combo AFTER HOURS.

Long considered Central Ohio's finest solo guitarist, Mark Williams creates the perfect musical environment for all occasions!

This review is LONG overdue. Mark played at my wedding on May 18, 2014. I cannot say enough good things about him. He learned a new song in less than two weeks for our wedding, and it sounded awesome the day of! He was very easy to work with, flexible and willing to accommodate our requests. He was always on time and professional. The guests loved him. Would definitely recommend!

Mark was awesome! He is so talented and was everything we were looking for. He played during my ceremony and was perfect! He came all the way to Athens for the rehearsal, also, to make sure he had the cues. Mark was able to learn a song for my husband and I for when I walked down the aisle. After the ceremony he moved locations to our reception venue and played for cocktail hour. His music was perfect for our event. He was so easy to work with and is such a talented musician. We will definitely recommend Mark to friend and family. In fact, my husband already gave his card to an engaged couple that we know that attended our wedding! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH MARK!!!

Mark was excellent to work with from the beginning we booked him from Gigmasters.com , he followed up from phone calls and e-mails !! Our guest enjoyed his musical talent... Our daughter had a barn wedding and we even wanted him to sit in the top of the hay loft to perform, which he did without ANY hesitation. It was the perfect ceremony ....!!!

He did a great job at both the rehearsal and the ceremony. He listened to our requests on Friday and made notes and played for a long time while guests entered for the ceremony. As the bride, I didn't hear much, but guests and the groom said it was fantastic. He brought his own amp as well.
