$50 - $50 per event
Whatever your event, whether it's an intimate party, or a major festival, let me help you make it memorable.

In my 20-year career, I've performed at numerous weddings, private and corporate parties, museum openings, film festivals, and special events of every type, from the west coast to the east, as well as internationally. I've been a featured solo guitarist aboard the Princess Cruise Lines on their South Pacific route, and have played for the touring companies of Broadway musicals including Chicago, Annie, Dream Girls, and Big.

You'll find a sample song list elsewhere on this page, but my repertoire is far more extensive than can be shown here, encompassing standards, contemporary tunes, jazz, Latin/bossa nova, Americana, European (gypsy) swing, some classical, and even a few originals, on acoustic, electric, and steel string guitar.

Because I want to be sure that the music creates the perfect ambience for your unique event, I tailor performances to your venue and preferences. If there are specific tunes you'd like to hear, don't feel you're restricted to any song list. Just give me the song titles, and I'll incorporate them into the set.

Like many professional musicians, I play a number of other instruments (bass, drums, trumpet, keyboards, to name a few). On certain songs, by pre-recording additional instrumental music tracks, I can re-create the sound of a full band behind the guitar. Listen to some of the recordings I've posted elsewhere on my listing page for examples.

When not performing solo, I've played with many noted musicians and bands, including the legendary Kenny Drew Jr., Twinkle, Harmonious Wail, and the Motet.

Originally from New York, I have a degree in Music from the University of Colorado, and credits toward a Masters in Jazz Studies at UT Austin, where I attended on full scholarship.

Please get in touch soon, and let's discuss how I can help you to make your event the best it can be. I look forward to hearing from you.

Alex played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and his talent and professionalism were everything we could hope for. He went the extra mile for us, writing beautiful original arrangements of our processional and recessional musical requests at no extra charge. From Bach to jazz to the Beatles, he played it all wonderfully. He’s also a super nice guy. Highly recommend!
