Envision the music that will compliment your upcoming event. Guitarist Brian Slaymaker's engaging personality, musical versatility, and expansive repertoire can bring that vision alive. Brian specializes in classical guitar, but his repertoire includes rock, jazz, and blues. The musician of choice for weddings, corporate events, and concerts, Brian has been performing professionally for over 20 years at venues in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC. Brian will prepare or expand a repertoire list based on client requests, and he is pleased to collaborate with singers and other instrumentalists as needed.
Brian Slaymaker started his professional performance career as a rock musician playing lead guitar and bass guitar with rock bands in Virginia, Maryland, California, and New York. What initially was an interest in classical music became a passion, which led to a Bachelor of Music Degree cum laude in Classical Guitar Performance from George Mason University. Along with his performance schedule, Brian maintains an active teaching studio in Virginia.

As a performer, educator, clinician and contractor of over 30 years I have had the opportunity to hire hundreds of musicians for events. I consistently hire Brian because I know he will provide his absolute best to every client every single time."

We had a fabulous experience with Brian Slaymaker! He was very professional and a fantastic performer. He had a great selection of songs and was willing to go any direction we wanted. He was the icing on the cake for our party and the guest complimented his playing. If we had another party Brian would be my go-to! So glad I found him.

Brian was everything we were looking for to make our birthday celebration perfect - great performer, received many positive comments from our guests. He took requests, prepared some requested pieces ahead of time, and even agreed to stay on for another hour as our guests were having such a great time. Top marks for Brian - would very highly recommend him, and hope to use him again in the future!

This was our second time using Brian for one of our Grand Opening Events. The positive feedback we received in regards to his music from not only guests but employees was through the roof. We already have booked him for an additional event coming up and have him saved as a go to for future events!
