(Note: To view hundreds of Gigmasters client reviews dating back to 2002, please view my PRIMARY profile page on Gigmasters under Philadelphia Acoustic Guitarists.)

Philadelphia, PA-based freelance acoustic guitarist-vocalist, averaging 150 social and business solo gigs annually since 2002. Extensive memorized repertoire, spanning the decades and genres, Bach to Rock: classic-prog-soft-indie rock, standards, soul, R & B, lite FM, lite jazz, oldies, hits and album cuts, plus classical, instrumental, traditional, bluegrass, Irish and holiday music, performed 100% live and by memory -- no backing tracks, drum machine, lyric sheets, written music, tablet or screen. Ivy-educated. General liability insured. Professionalism, musicianship and client satisfaction are my focuses.

Almost all of my repertoire was and is learned by ear. Arrangements are holistic and often pianistic. I do the whole thing, not just guitar and vocal parts, incorporating all parts from the recordings, plus a range of guitar techniques, improvisation and composition. Requests are welcome. Guests singers too, when appropriate. Whatever it takes for folks to have a great time. It's always my pleasure to make music and entertain!

We hired Scott for a 40th birthday party. He did a really great job. His speaker sound level was perfect. His song selection was fun and upbeat. He made the party that much better. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Scott!

We hired Scott to play a large alumni tailgate for a football game in Manhattan. Scott was a consummate professional, incredibly friendly and accommodating, and a joy to have at our party. His song list was extremely deep, catering to our classic rock and country sensibilities, and he even took some requests. Scott was the perfect addition to our party and he day would not have been nearly as wonderful without him. I could not more highly recommend Scott to play your next event, we will undoubtably have him back to play our next alumni event. Thanks Scott!
