(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!

Takamine classical guitar

Engaging, Charismatic and wonderfully in tune - Scott's musical talents brought a wonderful element to my event. Guests were engaged, the musical selection was perfect and his vocal + guitar playing talent is a force not to be reckoned with! He arrived with all of his own equipment and set-up and breakdown were flawless and brief. With all of this offered to us at such a great value, it is very probable that we will be booking Scott Samuels for another event very soon. - The Hajek Family

Scott was everything I had hoped for and more when deciding to book a musician for my grandmother's milestone birthday celebration. He showed up on time and was professional throughout. More importantly, he really livened up the party and made it feel more special. He is a very talented musician with an astoundingly long playlist. He will take direction from you in terms of what he plays and is happy to take requests. I received many compliments from other guests about him. I would definitely recommend him for your event.
