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 ensemble with flute or strings.

Ken is a very talented entertainer and my audience loved him. I arranged for him to play for my guests upon arrival to my company's reception and it was the perfect touch to set the mood. Ken made sure that I was comfortable with all the song choices and even played more upon the request of the guests. If you are looking for a true professional for your event I would recommend Ken!

We were so lucky to have Ken provide the music for our Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail hour at Brookfield Zoo. Before the event Ken and I had a short conversation about song choices, I requested a few specific songs but left most of the choices to him and I do not regret it. Every song he chose was beautifully played and fit perfectly with the venue. At the start he promised to be low maintenance and easy to work with, not only did he deliver on his promise but he turned out to be the biggest hit at our wedding (no easy task given he had very stiff competition). I am so glad he was a part of our day!
