About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Hi, I'm a Singer-songwriter-guitarist available to play your special event. I play solo and with a band. I play an eclectic mix of folk, blues, soul, and pop-rock music. I have a wide repertoire, going from Americana-folk to pop-rock, oldies, and contemporary and I have a big following in the NW. I've been working as a professional musician/performer for over 10 years. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo and I am now based in the Central Coast of California. I play weddings, festivals, private parties, wineries, and corporate events across Oregon and Washington; I perform regularly at local venues. I tailor the performance to your needs: Play between 1-5 hours, acoustic guitar & vocals, duets, trios, or full-band performance with my sound system tailored to the size of the venue. And if they're not in my repertoire already, I can learn specific songs for your event. REVIEWS from local press: “...the voice of singer-songwriter Sami Rouissi dressing the music with his vocals. The man is blessed with a tone so smooth you could pour it into a glass and have seconds.” “Sami is like Ben Harper, Tracy Chapman, David Gray, Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gay emerged into one person” Portland Mercury “I recently looked up information on Sami after hearing him. I was blown away when I stumbled in and heard him playing. Has the best voice, and flat out can play. Very original and although he did play a few cover songs, they were far superior to the original. Best acoustic performer I have seen to date.” Portland Mercury

Review by Jillian B.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 6, 2022From Visalia, CA

5 stars! Sami is professional, communicative, and super talented. We were impressed with his talents, and SO many of our guests (there were 125) commented on how fantastic the music was! Sami really helped to set the tone of our event (a chic, 40th birthday party at our home). Sami arrived early, was dressed appropriately, and was lovely to have in our midst. I enthusiastically recommend Sami!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 1, 2021From Big Sur, CA

We are SOoo happy that Sami was our musician. His musicality was beautiful, definitely special with the way he layered instrumental. He’s truly skilled at what he does. It was extremely easy to work with Sami as he is a true professional, accommodating, kind and willing to complete the job even if it meant that we delayed the start time by 30 mins due to an issue (unrelated to Sami) right before our ceremony. He was so patient & understanding w/us. We are grateful that he was there to bring joy & comfort through his music and calm us from our crazy morning. Sami is great! We highly recommend him!!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on December 5, 2021From Los Osos, CA

I cannot say enough good things about Sami! We were fortunate to have Sami play for my birthday party with 40 guests. We met Sami when he was performing at a local venue and absolutely loved his music. He is charming, professional, accomodating and is a gifted talent. He has a beautiful range of music with his own style adding to the experience. Sami set the mood for a great party, our guests all raved about him and have already made plans to see him play again around town. We are fortunate to have him in our community!
