I am a Classical Guitarist, Composer, and Musical Arranger with a great love for music. I have been playing guitar for most of my life. I play contemporary musical selections in what is called chord-melody style. It's a finger-style method that incorporates the song's melody, harmony, and bass line all played simultaneously which gives the song unique and satisfying musical tones. I believe the best music brings to mind people, places or things we love and lets your imagination run away with your dreams. I have spent years developing and experimenting to find a unique amplified sound for the nylon string classical guitar. The end result is sound you will hear no where else and is like no other.

My CD, "Companions of the Moon" I feel demonstrates my unique musical approach expanding guitar sound/ arrangement possibilities. Excerpt samples from the CD can be enjoyed by clicking the music player. Part of my unique musical style comes from a spiced blend of ballad rock, blues, jazz, oriental, and classical influences. I also have fun taking 1960's piano songs and developing stylized versions of them.
My live performance (please see "Song List"), includes arrangements of some of the most beloved and well-known classical compositions from the Great Composers as well as classic rock songs by Modern Composer Greats such as Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Eagles, Beatles and many others. I also perform original music compositions found on my Companions of the Moon CD. Attention! L@@K--- All fine dining and intimate club setting owners / managers. I am also available to play for your establishment on a regular basis or can work out various dates open on your entertainment calendar. I provide just the right ambient sound for your patrons to enjoy. You won't be disappointed I assure you!

My entertainment venues and events that I specialize in: wedding ceremonies, corporate events, luncheons, cocktail hours, providing ambient music for fine restaurant dining, and street music (electricity must be supplied). The most important factor is that I successfully capture your musical vision for your event or business.
Best Wishes,

Philip DelGrosso ~ Classical Guitarist / Composer

Philip's sound and musical knowledge are exceptional, thanks to his decades of hard work and experience. He had a nice long list of music that we were able to choose from for our wedding pre-ceremony/ceremony/and cocktail hour. He was on time and his equipment sounded very nice. Many of our guests complemented us on the choice/style of music, so a big thanks goes to Philip. Our only complaints were that the ceremony/processional song timings could have been improved and his wardrobe choice for the event was too casual (even after mentioning it was formal-wear). Recommend insisting on attending rehearsals in the future.

Classical Guitar Sensations’s Response:

Since there was no prior rehearsal I had to rely on the ceremony speaker for cues as I did not know the length of each part of the ceremony. The speaker instructed me to follow her cues which I did. I also made a special trip to the wedding couple's home to hand deliver my song list and receive the couples preferred songs and instructions on a paper document. Nowhere on the instruction sheet given to me did it mention "formal wear". Since it was outside on a warm summer day I dressed in dress shoes, dress pants, and a short sleeve collared button shirt to avoid sweating. I was also not compensated for my pre-event travel and meeting time with the wedding couple.

We hired Philip for a small New Year’s dinner with family and friends. His performance really made the night extra special. It was hard to find a performer for that night but Philip was very responsive, arrived ahead of time to set everything up and even played some extra songs for us. Thank you Philip!
