Ken Rothacker - Guitarist
About this pro
I didn't hear much of his work myself, but the gro said that he did an awesome jobAug 12, 2017Verified
Ken was a pleasure to work with, he was knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and friendly. Sadly, I personally didn't hear much of his playing since I was preoccupied with my wedding, but I heard plenty of good feed back from my guests who enjoyed his playing. I recommend Ken with no reservations.Aug 1, 2017Verified
We had a great experience with Ken for our wedding! Played all the songs we asked and he was able to provide us with a huge selection of tunes he already knows. Thanks Ken :)Jul 23, 2017Verified
A great musician in fantastic performer that works well with a variety of venues, client and guests preferences.Dec 18, 2016Verified
We hired Ken to play for our wedding ceremony on 10/1/16. He was so fantastic prior to our wedding, making sure we were on track with what decisions needed to be made, and suggestions different songs. I unfortunately didn't see him on the day of, but the music sounded great and everyone had compliments! Out of all the vendors I had to converse with and accommodate, he was one of the best! Thanks, Ken!Oct 10, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For weddings, I typically charge based on whether I am playing for just ceremony, or if the client is having me play for cocktail hour or dinner. For other corporate or private events, I charge on an hourly basis. Also, pricing varies on whether the client is hiring me as a solo player, or if we are including an additional instrument, like flute or violin.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Quite a bit of my initial discussion with clients is either via email, or the Thumbtack portal. This is a quick and easy way to find out specific details - type of event, date, time, location. Usually with wedding clients, we have at least one either phone, FaceTime,or Skype conversation. These video options give us the ability to get to know one another a bit better.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied classical guitar at University of Illinois. In addition to working on my playing, I received excellent training in music theory and history. That was a long time ago. Since graduating, I have continued to study music arranging and composition independently, and have also studied the technology that goes into creating music. The experience of having played hundreds of performances has truly helped me to fine tune my craft.
