"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 an outstanding job as guitarist for our outdoor garden wedding. He was extremely professional, accommodating, and talented, and really took to heart our requests and style preferences. He learned and performed a wonderful, upbeat version of "Sunshine of my Life" for our processional, making an already-exciting moment even more joyful for us. Multiple guests have commented on how much they enjoyed his playing, both before the ceremony and during the cocktail reception. Our wedding was somewhat casual, and Greg did an excellent job of keeping the music light and peppy, but still classy. Highly recommend!

From the second we booked Greg our communication was very professional and prompt. We requested songs that he needed to learn how to play, which he played perfectly and lovely. The day of the wedding was extremely cold at an outside venue and he never stopped playing. I would highly recommend Greg because of his professionalism and talent.
