"Every guest raved about Chris - If you're looking for an accommodating, talented, no worry performer, Chris is the person to book straight away!"... Hi - Thanks for visiting ! I'm a solo guitarist, vocalist & ukulele player, playing the finest, most beloved songs from the last 40 years, from Ed Sheeran & Mumford & Sons to The Beatles, Van Morrison, James Taylor & The Eagles to The Police, Tom Petty, U 2, Springsteen, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Train & Dave Matthews. My 700+ songlist also includes contemporary Country songs from Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley & Rascal Flatts. During the last year, I played 173 completely unique Private & Corporate events for NBC/Universal, Porsche, Wineries in Napa Valley, Beach Weddings in Santa Barbara & Malibu, Resort Weddings at The San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito and The Biltmore/4 Seasons, private events in San Francisco, Mill Valley & Las Vegas, among many others - Each event has different musical needs & I look forward to learning about yours ! Please read my recent reviews, it's an honor to play for such fine people...

I've been fortunate to play with the finest musicians from some of the biggest bands in the world. My recent CD has guest musicians from The Rembrandts, Los Lobos, Vertical Horizon & The Wallflowers. I've toured many countries, played hundreds of gigs in many of the world's best venues, from the Montreaux Jazz festival & Hollywood Bowl to The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel. In fact, I just got a really nice "pat on the back" from a friend who's opinion I really value... Don Felder, guitarist for The Eagles ... " The CD is a big hit. Love the all acoustic guitars and the vocals are really great. I hope you'll still talk to me after you become a big star from this CD.... Cheers, Don Felder " Very Kind Indeed...

Please listen to the music on this page - All songs are recorded LIVE, guitar and vocals at the same time, with no overdubs, second-takes, or fixed mistakes. Please take a look at my GigMasters reviews, I take great pride in making VERY happy clients....

One more thing... I don't like to use drum machines, or backing tracks... These songs all sound great with an amplified acoustic guitar & voice -
If you envision a Classic, Elegant wedding ceremony, I'll be glad to play a traditional acoustic guitar instrumental version of "Here Comes The Bride" and "Pachobel's Canon in D".... or.....get creative.... Close your eyes, choose songs & music that perfectly underscore your feelings for each other. Let me play & sing them for you. I can learn most any pop song.... Here's a few examples of songs I've learned for recent Weddings.... An All-Beatles Wedding, "Here Comes The Sun".... Jason Mraz "I'm Yours"... Pearl Jam "Just Breathe" ... Dave Matthews "Two Step"... Train "Hey Soul Sister".... Stain'd "Tangled Up In You".... Beatles "I Will".... Tom Petty "Here Comes My Girl".... Peter Gabriel "Book Of Love".... Alan Jackson "Remember When".... U 2 "All I Want Is You".... Jason Mraz/Colbie Calliet "Lucky"... Beatles "Two Of Us"..... Rascal Flatts "Bless The Broken Road".... Peter Gabriel "In Your Eyes"..... Cat Stevens "The Wind"..... Garth Brooks "Wrapped Up In You"........ "Over The Rainbow" - Instrumental, or "Hawaiian" vocal style..... "What A Wonderful World" ..... Use your imagination...

Most clients want me to play & sing for them - If you want totally instrumental music, I have a couple of hours of great instrumental music, from The Beatles to Sting to Coldplay, beautiful, recognizable melodies that are perfect for a celebration. I have a long list of Very Happy Brides & clients..... I take great joy in helping to make a perfect event -

I'm available to play for your Wedding Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception...

When I do a gig for kids, here's how I approach it.... I play contemporary songs, most of which these kids already know, songs that have lyrics that teach, inspire, & help them learn.... I encourage kids to sing along, and I'll have some percussion instruments for kids to play. Song examples include Toy Story's "You've Got A Friend In Me", by Randy Newman, Tarzan's "You'll Be In My Heart" by Phil Collins, "Time Of Your Life" by Green Day, "House On Pooh Corner" by Kenny Loggins, "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts, "Black Horse & Cherry Tree" by KT Tunstall, "BlackBird" by The Beatles, "You've Got A Friend" by James Taylor... I've played Los Angeles City-Sponsored concerts for kids, elementary schools, nursery schools & benefits for "Autism Speaks".

Chris is as good as it gets. I hired him for both my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He provided the PERFECT ambiance for the cocktail hour and has such an amazing song list!!! If you like country/ classics he is perfect for you- great outdoor summer party feel. For the ceremony- this is where he was just outstanding. My husband and I have a song that is from a movie that means a lot to us- a couple weeks before he learned how to play it instrumentally so I could walk down the aisle to it- and he nailed it and made the moment even more special than I could have imagined. Also his professionalism and go with the flow makes him a dream to work with. Thank you!
