$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 ensemble with flute or strings.

Ken played classical guitar for our intimate wedding ceremony and was a pleasure to deal with all around. He's a talented guitarist and delivered exactly what was appropriate for the event. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Ken was great! We went on a little bit of a non traditional path and had almost all Beatles music for our ceremony. Ken was totally on board and gave great suggestions! We had so many compliments on the music. I would recommend Ken to anyone in a heartbeat!

Ken was very personable and talented. He was able to assess the mood of the party (small corporate event) quickly and adjusted his repertoire accordingly. Because he had a remote connection to his amplifier, he was able to move to the location where the people were (all bunched at one end of the venue) and have the music audible by all. Can't say enough good things about him - very flexible, personable and sensitive to the crowd. And VERY good on the guitar Would totally recommend him.
