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 is a gem! He got to our event early to make sure he knew where to be, made sure the electrical outlets worked, and that we were happy with how he set things up. He's so polite and friendly. But what I cannot say enough about is his talent for playing the guitar! He is able to play a range of pieces and he really added so much to our wedding and reception! So many guests came up to us to compliment us on Brian's music. I really can't say enough positive things about him and his work. If you have an event you should really book him!
