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.

For most audiences, he'll play a mix of familiar songs both old and new, from mellow to rocking as appropriate for the crowd (see songlist). Sam will also work with you to create the specific atmosphere you want for your event, even changing moods if desired for different phases of your event.

For example, for a wedding he could play
- instrumental music for the ceremony (Pachelbel's Canon in D, Ode to Joy,…, or sing songs of your choosing)
- then background music during a dinner reception, (James Taylor, Jim Croce, jazz...)
- then rock out to fill the dance floor afterwards (Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, John Mayer, Motown, …)

On certain songs, he uses state-of-the-art looping technology to play rhythm and lead guitar, bass lines, and percussion all at once. And he can switch to mandolin, ukulele, or banjo if any of those provide the atmosphere you're looking for. Looking for a bigger sound? Sam can bring a duo, trio, or larger band. And of course, he can play recorded music through his sound system and even emcee your event if you like.

During his 30-year music career, Sam has performed solo for countless clubs and private events, toured nationwide as a member of rock band 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!

Sam MADE our wedding! From the serious moments of the ceremony to reading the crowd, playing music that created the party atmosphere we could only have hoped for(including letting one of our friends accompany him in a few songs), Sam delivered and then some. He even went above and beyond by providing us recordings of the "toasts"! Highly highly recommend him for any event...he's depth and breadth is extremely impressive. He truly is that awesome.

Sam was amazing! He played exactly what we asked for! I basically wrote the set list and he even wore a shirt that I brought for him,so he matched our wedding party! He was so easy to work with(weddings are a lot of work) he set up, starting when I gave him the thumbs up, and we had an amazing wedding! I can’t thank Sam enough! He rocked! We will definitely go see Sam play again whenever he’s in California! Anyone getting married and wants a live musician check out Sam! When I asked what kinda stuff he could do solo, he sent me a list of 800+ songs! He even learned a couple special songs we wanted him to play! He did! Thanks again Sam The Flask’s

Sam was just great! He arrived early and was all set by the time we arrived... he played exactly the kind of music we were looking for, and was so accommodating to let us use his mike and to pause for the blessing, toasts, etc. He even let me know when the restaurant announced an upcoming remodel so I could doublecheck any potential conflicts! He got right back to me with recordings of the toasts as well. I would highly recommend him!
