I hired Dylan to play 6 or 7 songs while I proposed to my girlfriend. He was a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him to family and friends.

Dylan played guitar and sang beautifully at our wedding. My wife picked out a ton of songs. Some he had not done before. He did every one perfectly. Because of his range and talented guitar playing, he made our special day even more special.

Lon - thanks for the opportunity to play your wedding and I'm glad you enjoyed the music. Best of luck to you and Tammy!

Dylan is awesome to work with! I never write reviews but had to take the time to write this one. He played all genres of music & really got the crowd into it. We all had a blast! We didn’t want the night to end. So he stayed extra! If anyone is ever looking for something a little different at your next party or event I highly recommend! It was so much fun. Way better than just playing a radio.

FAQs

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

    I teach guitar lessons from my home in Havertown. Pricing is $25 a half hour lesson. For music entertainment, my rate is $150/hour for gigs in the Greater Philadelphia area. I'm happy to travel in a 90 mile radius of Philly, but gigs outside of a 30 mile radius of Philly will have a $50 travel charge.

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

    Please let me know your preference of music, date, type of event and your budget. For most solo gigs, I play a mix of classic rock, southern rock, 80s/90s rock, country and a few party favorites. But I have literally HUNDREDS of songs in my repertoire and I'm more than happy to learn your requests or even take requests on the spot. If you would like to hire a band, I can provide that as well. I can provide the following configurations: Acoustic solo (guitar and vocals) Duo (2 guitars and vocals, guitar/vocals and percussion or guitar/vocals and bass) Trio (guitar/vocals, bass and drums or percussion) Four-piece (guitar/vocals, rhythm guitar, bass and drums) Five-piece (guitar/vocals, female vocals, rhythm guitar, bass and drums). Pricing for various configurations will depend on the length and type of music preferred. All quotes will include sound and lights provided by the band. For larger events or for larger crowds, I always recommend that we bring in a pro sound company, which will be an additional $300-400.

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

    I have been playing music since I was a little kid. In high school, I was highly involved with my school's music program and played guitar, trumpet and marimba in Jazz Band, Marching Band, Concert Band and more. I also started playing in rock bands as a teenager. In college, I studied guitar with Glen Lyons at West Chester University. I have studied music theory at the college level and also took private lessons with respected jazz guitarist Chuck Anderson for five years. I've been playing professionally and semi-professionally since the 90s and continue to play between 5-15 gigs a month.
