Thank you everyone for visiting Gigmasters

And thank you also for visiting my site here with them, they are an excellent co. with some of the best service i've ever witnessed via the internet.

I'm a diverse Classical Guitarist serving all areas of Washington state for over 20 years.

Whether it be an intimate social gathering you are planning, or a larger celebration at a venue with many guests, i can amply provide for most all occasions. Performing on a Takamine electric/classical guitar and mixed through a Roland acoustic amplifier + P.A. (If needed) with full surround sound, I can adequately provide excellent audio for audiences of 3-4, or up to 500 guests.

My average rate per hour varies depending upon your event and it's location, but i usually charge between $75.00-125.00 per hour, + a nominal travel fee if your venue is located outside of the Skagit Valley area to cover the cost of travel.

If hired, I will be committed and dedicated, to helping you make your event a memorable one to the very best of my ability.

Requests for 60's-70's-80's-90's music: I can play/perform most anything, but do ask that you might provide me a 3-4 week minimum to study/learn material per you request/s.

Equipment:

Takamine EC132SCX
Yamaha 10 watt TRH10 (With independent battery supply)
Amplification for larger venues: Roland AC100
Amplification for venues of 200 or more guests: Roland AC100 + a Berringer 200 watt Europower Amp with two Yamaha 12'' Speakers + two "Custom" 10" speakers (if needed) for total surround sound application/s.

I'm Hoping to have the opportunity to perform for your special occasion soon !!

Kind regards,

James Allen McCLure

Client Review
James was a fantastic addition to Pacific Northwest Ballet's event! His music was a perfect background to our outdoor party, and he even offered to bring us a microphone so we didn't have to rent an extra one. James was very professional and easy to work with, and our guests were so complimentary of his beautiful music. We would definitely work with him again!




James was amazing through the whole process of planning the music for our wedding. From the first day we booked through Gigmasters to the day after the wedding he has gone above and beyond, constantly staying in touch to help us to choose songs, changing arrangements to fit our needs and playing the most beautiful music we have ever heard. He was extremely organized and punctual, showing up many hours before he was scheduled to make sure he would be set up and ready in time for our ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how beautifully he played. We would absolutely recommend James to play for any event, his professionalism, kindness, and talent is priceless. -Sarah B, Orcas, WA

-------------------------------------------------------------------

My favorite composers are I. Albeniz, F. Tarrega, and N. Paganini. I perform many musical arrangements from them, and other great composers of their era...(please see list of compositions) to make up over 3.5 hours of uninterrupted music.
I perform on a Takimine EC132SC electric/acoustic classical guitar....

I have a full surround sound P.A. system that provides the ultimate in volume levels and sound control, and I will work very hard to help make your experience the best possible for live music! Thank you for coming in and viewing my press kit, and have a nice day!

Sincerely,

James Allen McClure

We have had James perform at our events several times. Outside of his excellent entertainment skills, we especially like the aspect that we can go on with our jobs knowing that James will do his with no complications. We highly recommend this classical guitarist.

This was the second time we've hired James to play for our events. (The first was for our daughter's wedding.) We own an art gallery, and James played for our Artist Reception. He helped to create a relaxed, classy evening and we look forward to having him come play for us again. Thank you James!!
