Craig Stephenson regularly performs elegant ambiance music for private and corporate events all over San Diego County.

Note that Craig performs as a soloist and with a guitar duo (Bacilla|Stephenson Duo, which is also on Gigmasters). If "upbeat", "latin rhythms", etc. are desired then please consider the guitar duo. Solo guitar is excellent for events where beautiful and elegant ambiance is desired.

SOLO GUITAR
His repertoire includes the most beloved pieces of the "Spanish Classical" repertoire made famous by Segovia, the Romeros, Christopher Parkening, etc.
This includes works by Tarrega, Albeniz, Villa-Lobos, Barrios, Torroba, Morel, and more. If you are looking for "romantic guitar ambiance" you have likely found an excellent fit for your event.

Craig's solo guitar performance is exceptionally well suited for events that benefit from a refined atmosphere. He prides himself on delivering "concert" level performance even in the context of a background music presentation. The result is unobtrusive music that is unmistakably impressive... a winning combination delights guests without ever distracting from their conversations with each other.

While new to Gig Masters, Craig has built a reputation of being highly professional for his remarkable attention to detail in everything from performance craft to the logistics of providing amplified live music to events and venues of all kinds. Noteworthy corporate clients that have booked Craig for special events on an annual basis over the last 10 years include the San Diego Medical Society and Loyola Marymount University- through contact with another booking agency, LMU has specifically requested Craig Stephenson by name to perform for their annual staff awards event for 9 consecutive years.

Craig performs for private and corporate events that range in size from 10 to 300+ guests

POWERED AMPLIFICATION - WIRELESS MICS FOR SPEECHES - MULTIPLE PERFORMANCE LOCATIONS & SATELLITE SPEAKERS
Craig has multiple PA systems including wireless mics and transmitters which provides a unique set of options for his clients, such as providing wireless handheld (and/or lav) microphones for client announcements and speeches by officiants and guests. For events that "move" from one location to another (such as indoors to outdoors, or ceremony lawn to cocktail hour patio), Craig can setup multiple PA's in advance of the event for an instant change of location mid event. For events that simultaneously occur indoors and outdoors (or in multiple rooms) Craig can perform in one location while sending wireless signals to speakers in remote nearby locations so the music can be heard at comfortable "background music" volume levels throughout the venue.


SOLO vs GUITAR DUO?
If your event can benefit from a more "upbeat" ambiance than the romantic repertoire heard in the sample recordings provided then you should consider his guitar duo - "Bacilla|Stephenson Guitar Duo" which is also promoted on Gig Masters. Craig also recommends the guitar duo as the first choice for wedding ceremonies for increased flexibility in what the duo can provide with song selection. Note that the duo has repertoire that is equally well suited for intimate and elegant background ambiance... and in addition the duo has style options that include more upbeat music such as latin jazz, flamenco, and Italian music with mandolin!


Thank you very much for your time and consideration. If you are specifically interested in booking Craig Stephenson or the Bacilla|Stephenson Guitar Duo (or if you think either would be a good fit) then please make a note of that in your inquiry.
