SOLO ACOUSTIC GUITAR:
Solo finger style background guitar music playing from current repertoire for a wedding ceremony and an optional cocktail hour or club or party @ same venue immediately before or after the ceremony. This is appropriate for ceremony and cocktail hour, not function.
ONE MAN BAND:
With backing tracks and male vocal. This is perfect for function and may also be a fit for ceremony and/or cocktail hour.
Each service is unique so anything is possible. Brad performing the ceremony solo would include up to 5 ceremony songs (prelude, processional, interlude, recessional, postlude). Brad will attempt to attend the rehearsal for preparation if able to coordinate. This is preferred but not guaranteed.
Brad performing solo background acoustic guitar music with no vocal and/or one man band tunes with backing tracks and vocal from current song list.
SPECIAL REQUESTS: Wedding Ceremonies: Up to 3 of the 5 songs for the 1/2 hr ceremony may be special requests. Brad will also learn song requests for special dances for the function. Special song requests must be made at time of booking. All other songs from the Brad Lee repertoire, unless specified.
Brad performs on three carbon graphite acoustic electric guitars. These types of guitars are impervious to weather conditions such as temperature & humidity variations so outdoor weddings are a non issue in regards to being in tune. Of course, contingency plans should always be in place for any outdoor wedding in the event of inclement weather as noted below. Brad also performs on ukuleles & harmonicas and often sits in with full bands on electric lead guitar, keyboards and vocals.
Brad Lee does not need too much space but does require lighting for reading sheet music & @ least 1 grounded 3 prong AC receptacle. When performing an inside service in a church, up front or in the back, or outside... Brad has 3 different sized PA's (Mackie/JBL/Shure) depending on the event. If outside, weather should always be considered. Cover from the elements or a plan that involved moving inside in the event of inclement weather is needed. Tents often used.
Many videos of Brad Lee performing solo acoustic guitar arrangements and as a one man band... are online.
Over the years, Brad has performed @ 100's of weddings (ceremonies, cocktail hours & receptions) with various ensembles & solo as well as the acoustic vocal duo Collage and the 6 piece wedding function band - Classix.
When it has to be perfect... consider Brad Lee... you'll be glad you did.
