Sam brings together top-notch playing and singing, a huge repertoire, and a knack for reading the crowd and choosing just the right song for the moment. Always professional, entertaining, and easy to work with, Sam Pointer will bring you complements from your guests. Depending on what's right for your event, he can bring a duo partner on acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass, or banjo, or trio/quartet partners on any mix of mandolin, guitar, piano, bass, drums, flute, and female vocals. Check out the video samples (there's an "Acoustic Duo" series, a "Bluegrass Duo Sampler", even a "Christmas Band"). There are also lots of customer reviews and more video samples on his solo profile - just search Gigmasters for Sam Pointer.

For most audiences, Sam and his duo/band will play a mix of familiar tunes both old and new, from mellow to rocking as appropriate for the crowd. Sam can also work with you to create the specific atmosphere you want for your event (classic rock? bluegrass? oldies?) , even changing moods if desired. For example, they can provide
- instrumental music (Mendelsson's Wedding March, Ode to Joy,…) during a wedding ceremony,
- then background music (James Taylor, Duke Ellington,..) during a dinner reception,
- then rock out (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Motown,…) to fill the dance floor afterwards.

During his 30-year music career, Sam has performed at countless clubs, festivals, and private events, recorded with Grammy winners The Temptations and Emmy winner Christopher Hedge, toured nationwide, toured nationwide as a member of New Potato Caboose, won the songwriting contest at Doc Watson's MerleFest, and played with everyone from Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead) to David Grisman to Black Jacket Symphony. A seasoned veteran of the music business, Sam will provide the perfect entertainment for your event and will be professional and easy to work with!

Sam was awesome. I wanted a laid back feel with a cool sound. He brought a banjo and ukulele and it. was. amazing. Extremely talented - the fellow he brought along with him was too. We had an elegant and intimate reception with a little soul and the music fit perfectly. Guests raved and raved over him. I highly recommend!
