Aaron Short is a British musician who performs totally live with acoustic guitar and voice. He was a regular on the UK gig and Wedding circuit for 12 years before relocating to NYC. When in England he worked with clients including L'Oréal and performed over 100 weddings and private parties as well as performing at most of the bars and clubs in London!

It did not take long to replicate this success in New York where he now resides and plays regularly at least 4 times a week at venues in the Manhattan area (please see gig list for details). Playing songs from Pop, Rock, Country and Jazz he is also available as a duo or 3/4/5 piece band.

So far he has played many birthday parties and weddings and the reviews can be seen right here on gig masters. Notable gigs so far include a performance for 'Lucky Brand Jeans', the Javits Exhibition Center for the Reed Expo 2014 and Boots the chemist (UK based pharmacy). He has also met one of LA's premier Wedding Proposal planners through the site and continues to work with them on a regular basis.

Aaron is self-contained and professional as well as liability insured. His music can also vary from background cocktail style music to a high-energy party involving communication with the audience. Of course he is also able to judge this himself and will always guarantee a fantastic performance at any event.

Aaron was AMAZING!!! Aaron was easy to work with and very accommodating. He was an AMAZING talent and covered his artists perfectly, some songs even better than the original!!! Aaron was happy to learn 2 new songs that we requested and performed them beautifully. You can hire Aaron with confidence that his performance will meet or exceed your expectations. Aaron also has great presence and is fun to watch! Thank you Aaron! You were the star of the show! All the best, John & Monte

Aaron was fantastic to work with! He connected with us by phone prior to the event to talk through all the details and assure that he was familiar with the demographic of the audience and the needs of the event. He was extremely professional, well presented and communicative. The guests all loved the music; he provided a fantastic upbeat soundtrack to underscore our event. We would absolutely work with him again at any opportunity that arises.
