    Chris did an amazing job and played the perfect backdrop music for our soft grand opening party. He really helped create the ambiance and set the mood that I was shooting for. I would highly recommend Chris to perform at your event!

About this pro

As the only classically trained guitarist working professionally in western Wisconsin, my music lends a unique touch to any event. With 30 years of experience and top ratings from my clients, I can turn any event into a cherished memory. I perform at all kinds of events including weddings, receptions, corporate events, birthdays, funerals, wine tastings, banquets and more. At Wedding Wire, I have earned a perfect five-star rating, 50 (and counting) independently-collected reviews and 6 consecutive Bride's Choice awards. I enjoy the excitement of performing at big events, and sharing my knowledge of music through thoughtful, heartfelt performances. I especially love to hear positive feedback from satisfied clients!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I like to package my wedding services to simplify agreements and contracts. For other events, I usually submit a custom quote based on known variables.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I maintain a comprehensive data collection and planning process resulting in a very clear planning process. I produce my own professional contracts and communicate clearly with clients.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      My undergraduate degree in guitar performance is from UW La Crosse. I did my graduate work at the Lamont School of Music in Denver, CO, under the esteemed maestro Ricardo Iznaola. Along the way, I have been able to study with many of the finest guitarists in the world.
