Hello and thank you for visiting me at Gigmasters!
Combining the diverse musical instrumentation of the violin, guitar, mandolin, and ukulele - along with the highest quality of personalized, professional service, allow me to create the 'perfect' musical setting for your special occasion! Whether it be a wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner party, birthday, anniversary, corporate event or marriage proposal, I am comfortable with ALL styles of music including classical, light jazz, French, Spanish, Italian, folk styles, Celtic, Caribbean, Disney songs, and more! Below are some descriptions of what I can do...and will... to help make your event as wonderful as it deserves to be!
WEDDING CEREMONIES: I'll not only play the music for your wedding...I'll help you plan it! Bringing my instruments to your home, you and I will work together to 'personalize' your all your song selections and processional order to come up with a ceremony that will be uniquely yours! When done, I'll put together a highly detailed itinerary for you to ensure that everything runs smoothly and trouble free! Then, on your wedding day, I'll arrive early and set up a full two speaker PA system at your ceremony site AND include a wireless microphone for your officiant. *if your wedding is on the beach, I also have a battery operated PA that sounds amazing!
Having the ability to play different instruments really allows us to more 'color' your ceremony, as I might start out playing the prelude on the guitar, then switch to the violin for the first song of the processional, then swith to the ukulele for the bridesmaids, and back to the violin for the entrance of the bride!
Above all, this is YOUR special day, and you have my assurance of service unmatched by anyone in the industry...I guarantee it!
COCKTAIL HOURS: Quite simply - mine is the best! Utilizing all my instruments, a tiny wireless microphone, and a small computer with hundreds of different selections and styles, I have the ability to 'stroll' your venue affording a unique experience your guests will love! Plus, I'll set up an additional PA at your cocktail hour area so as to provide a 'seamless' transition from one segment to the next!
*Special ceremony / cocktail hour package available on request.
DINNER PARTIES, BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES, CORPORATE EVENTS, MARRIAGE PROPOSALS, SERENADES, ETC. Be it a small, 'intimate' affair at your home or restaurant, or a larger gathering at a hotel or catering facility, I have the experience (and love of what I do) to make your special occasion as memorable as possible for everyone. *Should you wish, I'll also furnish a full PA system system with a wireless microphone for your personal use as well..,plus I am fully licensed and insured so as to play wherever your event is - most venues require it.
Please feel free contact me at any time for more information, and I look forward to hearing from you, meeting you, and working with you!
"We were married on a Friday evening in Deerfield Beach Florida, however we live in North Carolina. Planning a destination wedding was very stressful. Ed responded to my emails quickly, set up phone dates where he played music samples, and answered all my questions. As a bonus he came with a PA system so all our guests could hear us on the beach. His set up was beautiful and so was his music. We received many complements on our ceremony music. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for a professional and talented musician."

"Ed Horowitz is the ultimate professional! Every request we had, he fulfilled with enthusiasm and a smile. Every guest at our event award gave positive feedback about the entertainment, and many expressed interest on using him for one of their own events. He is wonderful to work with plus he supplied us with a beautiful PA system. I have hired Ed I'm the past and will do so again.
Heidi Richards Mooney (awards banquet)
"Ed is absolutely fabulous!! And not only does he play one instrument, he plays three! Ed met with me three times to go over the music for the ceremony; and was very flexible about time and place. There is such a passion in Ed's music that you know he enjoys what he does so much. Thank you so much Ed! You truly added such a unique and personal element to my wedding. I couldn't imagine my wedding without you! I would highly recommend Ed to anyone who is looking for a musician for any occasion."
Danielle and Jason (wedding ceremony / cocktail hour)
"We can't begin to express our gratitude to Ed for the beautiful music and ambiance he provided for our wedding! When we hired Ed, we didn't know we were also getting an experienced ceremony coordinator. He helped us plan out the processional and recessional with coordinating music so that everything flowed perfectly. Thank you, Ed for everything you did for us."
