Joe was the highlight of my friend’s birthday party. Extremely talented guitarist/ vocalist and was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and showed up early to setup so we had more than enough time before the event started. Great song list... Will definitely be hiring him again.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Private event and wedding pricing starts around $450 for a solo instrumental performance.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically a customer comes to me for their wedding or private event music. For weddings, clients request the songs they would like for their processional (usually 2, one for the bridal party and one for the bride) and recessional. I then work out arrangements of those songs. If asked I also perform music as a prelude. I can also perform for cocktail hour. Performances can be solo guitar or solo guitar with vocals. I also work with multiple violin players and can perform as a duo.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been a professional musician for over a decade, performing for weddings, restaurants, and events. I've performed for weddings at some of New England's most popular wedding locations.
