"Greg Smith has a warmth to his playing and his sound that is unique. His phrasing caresses you like a hug from an old friend." --- Chick Corea

"Greg is a great guitar player; he's got great technique, fabulous ideas, and his sense of timing is right on the mark." ---Larry Coryell

Greg has done thousands of concerts, private parties, restaurant and nightclub gigs and weddings over the last 50 years all around the United States and the last thirty years in Central Florida.

"I play acoustic steel string, nylon and electric guitars. Having started playing in 1966, it's very enjoyable for me to play arrangements of standards, jazz and pop tunes, bossa-nova and Latin, folk and new age ,blues and many more styles. I know 100's of tunes and I can play non-stop for hours.

I can create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding ceremony and reception. Parties,corporate functions, weddings,art openings and museums are my forte and I obtain a great deal of enjoyment from these type of gigs.

Instrumentals are the main focus of my performances but I can sing and have many standards and pop tunes with vocals if desired.

I'm looking forward to giving you the perfect music you need to create the atmosphere you desire."

Sincerely,

Greg Smith

Guitarist

Greg did such a beautiful job playing at our outdoor wedding ceremony. We had a particular song in mind for when I walked down the aisle, and he was kind enough to send an mp3 of it for us to listen to before making our decision. We asked him to play it slightly different than the recorded version which he accommodated no questions asked. Our wedding ran late, but he was so understanding and was flexible and able to work with our schedule. He did such an amazing job that truly added to the lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an acoustic guitar player!
