$250 - $1500 per event
I believe that live music creates a unique feeling, a special energy, and an ambience that simply cannot be duplicated. I have played at hundreds of weddings,concerts,special occasions, corporate events, and church functions. My playing has been featured on Chicago radio stations WMBI and WGN, and I have performed my solo acoustic guitar version of the National Anthem before Cubs and White Sox games.

My clients appreciate the fact that, while I play my own unique arrangements of both familiar classics and pop, jazz, and Beatles tunes, I also have the experience and ability to learn and arrange their special favorites upon request.
I hope that you can take a moment to look at some of the feedback that my Gigmasters clients have posted regarding working with me.

I have recently created original solo acoustic guitar versions of tunes like "Beautiful Day" (U2), "1234" (Plain White T's), "Change the World" (Eric Clapton), and many more.
Additionally, I have a repertoire of original compositions.

For wedding couples, my goal is to be your easiest-to-work-with, lowest-maintenance wedding vendor.

From experience, I know how to work with you to understand your musical goals for your wedding, and how to develop a customized solution that you will remember for a lifetime.

In addition to performing as a solo artist, I frequently play in a duo with either violin, cello, or reeds.

Our experience with Ken was absolutely superb! He has such a gift with his love for music and sharing that passion with others in the most delightful ways. Ken's professionalism, personable warmth, & charm was truly "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"?? I definitely and highly recommend Ken for that truly exceptional guitarist you are looking for. Thank you so much Ken for sharing in making a bride & groom's wedding day a dream come true!

Ken is A+. A true professional. A portion of our ceremony resulted in a longer pause than we anticipated, and Ken quickly improvised a few chords for us as if it we had planned it. It was perfect.
