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, or bass, or trio/quartet partners on any mix of mandolin, guitar, piano, bass, drums, flute, and female vocals.

For most audiences, Sam and the 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, 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, Little Feat, John Mayer…) to fill the dance floor afterwards.
During his 30-year music career, Sam has performed for countless clubs, festivals, and private events, toured nationwide as a member of New Potato Caboose, recorded with Grammy winners The Temptations, won the songwriting contest at Doc Watson's MerleFest, and played with everyone from Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead) to David Grisman to John Popper (Blues Traveler). New to GigMasters but a seasoned veteran of the music business, Sam will provide the perfect entertainment for your event!
