Welcome to my Gig Masters web page.

MOST DEDICATED TO YOUR SUCCESS:

I am 1000% dedicated to helping YOU make YOUR event the best event possible. I am a totally dedicated musician. Music is my passion. Music is how I make my living and if I don't play well, then, I don't get the gigs. So I give every ounce of my musical being to playing my best for YOU at YOUR special event: from weddings to private parties to corporate events. My sole purpose is to make great music and make YOU and YOUR guests happy.

UNIQUE and VERSATILE SOLO GUITARIST:

I have a unique solo guitar style. I am a Master Guitarist and can play jazz, classical and acoustic style pop. Not to mention Chet Atkins style guitar. You won't find too many guitarists that can do that. I can play jazz standards from Ellington to Brubeck to Miles. And then I can play pop standards by the Beatles, BeeGees, and Stevie Wonder. Then I can switch to great classical music for guitar such as Bach and others.

CLASSICAL GUITAR SOLOIST:
As a classical guitarist, I play some of the most beautiful, easy listening classical music in the world. Sure to make you event classycal!

POP GUITAR SOLOIST:
I love playing some of the great hits from popular music, Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and more!

JAZZ GUITAR SOLOIST:
How about some swinging jazz guitar for your private or corporate party? I play swing, ballads, fast, slow, and the best from the Great American Songbook.

JAZZ TRIO:
And to top it off, how about a swinging jazz trio featuring guitar, upright bass and drums? Perfect for Dinner Parties, Corporate Events and More!


FEATURES AND BENEFITS FOR YOU:

1. I offer YOU diversity in music - different styles to keep it musically interesting. Or, if you just want some intimate quiet guitar music, I can do that, too!
2. I will offer to play overtime up to 30 minutes at no extra charge!
3. I pay the GigMasters fee for you!
4. I don't charge travel expenses or any extra fees.
5. My prices are fair and reasonable for both YOU and me.
6. If there is a jazz or pop tune you want me to play as an instrumental, then I will learn it for you at no charge!
7. I am available to you 7 days a week to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding your event.
8. I am also available by SKYPE if you want to discuss your event person to person ala video!
9. I am exceptionally easy to work with and will go out of my way work with you and give you what YOU need musically for YOUR event!
10. I am professional, responsible, caring and understanding and will always do more than my best for YOU.

MY MISSION:

I am a full time musician. This is what I love to do. Music is my passion and my mission is to play at YOUR event and make great music and make sure I live up to YOUR expectations. Like I said, I am highly responsible, to a fault. And I will show up at your event at least one hour before scheduled play time to set up and check in with you.

AND THERE IS MORE:

If you are a club or restaurant owner hiring me or my jazz trio, I will help promote my gig at YOUR establishment. I advertise on an email list that has 8,000 opt-in members who listen to music and go to clubs, especially jazz clubs. The eblast goes out once a week via CHICAGO JAZZ MAGAZINE, a highly respected publication in Chicagoland. And if you hire me, then I will list my gig at YOUR venue as an advertisement on that eblast list at no charge! It's a WIN-WIN- situation.

NOT DONE YET, SAVINGS FOR YOU!: If you hire me on GigMasters within 24 hours of my bid, I will knock off 10% from my quote!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Some of the musical possibilities I offer are

-Solo Guitar (Jazz, pop, light classical)
-Jazz Duo (Guitar with either Bass, Sax, Vibraphone or Marimba)
-Jazz Trio (Guitar, Bass, Drums)
-Jazz Quartet (Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano or Sax)

That should give you some ideas to work with when planning your event.

"Bob Bruce is an exciting guitarist recognized for his wonderful interpretations of jazz and pop standards. Blending mainstream lines with a wonderful sense of harmony, he creates imaginative ensemble arrangements and rich solo guitar pieces. He has played at venues and for clients such as Andy's Jazz Club, Pops, Field Museum, American Medical Association, and numerous private and corporate events."

I truly look forward to playing at your event! And I hope to be able to talk with you soon to discuss your musical needs.

Sincerely,
Bob Bruce
Guitarist

I have no complaints about the Bob Monti Jazz Group. They were very professional, they were very easy to communicate with, they were on time and they played excellent jazz music. I couldn't ask for anything more-

Bob Minchin Guitar’s Response:

We recieved many compliments about our playing. We were very professional. Played a wide selection of jazz tunes and went out of our way to do the best possible job we could do in an extremely noisy, cramped party environment for a very reasonable fee playing for a big corporation.
