Hello everyone, and welcome to my corner of Gigmasters! I've been a professional guitarist in Austin, Texas and surrounding cities since 2002. I have worked with Gigmasters since 2005. My focus is classical guitar for special events, such as Weddings, Corporate mixers, Wine Tastings, and various other celebrations. I have established professional relationships with several Austin hotels, and many surrounding Hill Country wedding venues to ensure a positive network with all event planners and venues, and most of all my clients.
When selecting my services for your event, rest assured that I do not just bring music to the event, I bring a level of client satisfaction that is unparalleled. I am responsible for sound reinforcement, set up, the performance, and breakdown. All on time and within your budget.
My repertoire consists of classical guitar by composers such as J.S. Bach, Ludwig Von Beethoven, Agustin Barrios, Leo Brouwer and Spanish composers such as Francisco Tarrega, and Miguel LLobet. Will your event need some more rapid fire music? I am also versed in the world music sounds of Turkey, and Middle Eastern flair. I can mix it up. Music is supposed to excite the party!
**A special note to brides**
If you are in the music planning portion of your ceremony. I am here to help you. Wedding planning can seem like a daunting task, but when it comes to your ceremony music, I want it to be relaxed and fun for you, and your fiancee. I have a teaching space located in South Austin, where I allow for couples to stop by and go over music selection and answer any questions you may have.
I have performed in just about every wedding venue in Austin, so I know what to expect, and how to get there. I arrive 90 minutes early because in Austin you never know what to expect on the roads! When you book Ravner Salinas for your music= Early is on time. On time is late. Late is not in my vocabulary.
**A special note to corporate event planners
I have provided classical guitar music for hundreds of corporate events in Austin, Dallas, Ft Worth, Houston and San Antonio. The music at these events is often tailored for a backdrop while your guests discuss matters that are vital to the goals of your firm. If you need the music as a backdrop, I can provide that. If you want your clients to make their way home with memories that Texas knows how to throw a party, I can bring that too. Just let me know the goals of your mixer and I can tailor the music to suit the events flow.
