*TRUST YOUR DAY TO A PROFESSIONAL AWARD WINNING WEDDING GUITARIST AND SINGER*


Chosen "BEST OF WEDDINGS" by TheKnot 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014

" BRIDES' CHOICE " by WeddingWire 2010, 2011, 2012,2013, 2014



I specialize in weddings, providing instrumental guitar and/or vocals for any combination of pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner/reception. I'll work with you beforehand to help choose and plan the perfect music for your day and help you make your vision a reality. I have played 100's of weddings of all types, church, backyard, oceanside, or mountaintop...from formal to folksy; so when those inevitable little complications arise that day, I'll handle them so you and your family won't have to.



On guitar, I play familiar classical, semi-classical, traditional songs, Beatles tunes, James Taylor, etc; whatever kind of mix you prefer. (Please check my song list, especially the "wedding music" section. It's not complete, but it represents the types of music I usually play).

My being both a guitarist and singer gives you flexibility if you need someone to play classical guitar, but also sing a particular special song for your ceremony or first dance. People also often decide to include some folk-style vocals in during the cocktail hour and dinner in order to provide some variety and transition toward a more relaxed, informal atmosphere.
The mix of music I provide always goes over well for dinner/reception, especially with the parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle segment of the family.

An option that some couples choose is to prepare an iPod playlist for me to play through my PA during part of the dinner/ reception. This creates a nice change of pace, perhaps for dancing, and since I can also provide a vocal mic for toasts and introductions, this offers the best of both worlds. You get live acoustic music, with some periods of more typical DJ programming, without the expense.

With sufficient lead time, I will gladly learn a particular special song for your wedding or party, so feel free to inquire.



RESTAURANTS, PARTIES, CORPORATE FUNCTIONS, ETC.

In a restaurant, corporate, or party setting, I perform traditional folk/blues/roots acoustic music accompanied by fingerstyle guitar.(Dylan, Paul Simon,James Taylor,Jonny Cash, Eagles, Van Morrison, etc).
I also cover a number of traditional blues in the style of Mississippi John Hurt or Robert Johnson and roots music ( think Doc Watson or Merle Travis). The song list is a good representation of the material I cover. Finally, depending on the venue, I mix in some of my roughly 50 originals, ranging from story songs to humorous songs,many with a New England flavor.

I provide my own sound up to 600 watts and can adapt to most situations. I worked for 30 years as a high school teacher, so I'm comfortable and adaptable on stage.

Dwight was an amazing individual to work with! He understood the tone that we wanted the wedding to have. We had certain songs that we wanted to have played at the wedding, and Dwight was able and willing to learn them for our big day. He always responded quickly back to any questions I had. By the time the wedding day was here, it was like having a friend doing our music, not some stranger parked off to the side. Thank you Dwight for being such a contributor to our day!

Dwight did a wonderful job at our backyard wedding in New Hampshire. We are extremely happy with everything he did. He was very professional. He is very talented. He was very accommodating with our requests. Dwight played solo accustic guitar instrumentals as guests were arriving, solo instrumentals as well as vocals during our cocktail hour and dinner and was willing and able to act as "DJ" while we and our guests danced. Dwight did an amazing job throughout and we would recommend him to anybody for almost any occasion. Thank you Dwight for making our wedding so memorable!
