WEDDING CEREMONY / COCKTAIL HOUR...

Brad Lee offers 2 options for wedding ceremonies:

2.) Acoustic vocal duo called Collage (Brad & Lauren Ouellette Chapman) with 2 part vocals -

Either available to book within 150 miles of Rockport, MA USA.

(Note: happy hour beach/island type music in the style of Jimmy Buffett also available @ weddings & functions as the event warrants upon request)

Make your event extra special with music that is top notch & quite memorable. Brad is a Berklee graduate with guitar as his primary instrument.

DUO:

Collage is a New England based acoustic vocal duo comprised of Brad Lee on guitar, harmonica, tin whistle, ukelele & vocals and Lauren Ouellette-Chapman on vocals & guitar available to perform for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours & functions @ weddings within 150 miles of Rockport, MA USA.

Brad's command of the guitar coupled with Lauren's captivating versatile voice is the perfect musical complement to the most important moment of your lives.

Lauren & Brad have been performing music together for over 20 years and would love to be a part of your wedding day.

CEREMONY:

Each service is unique so anything is possible. Brad or Collage performing the ceremony solo or duo would include up to 5 ceremony songs (prelude,processional,interlude,recessional,postlude) and special song requests are welcome for the ceremony. Brad/Collage will attempt to attend the rehearsal for preparation if able to coordinate. This is preferred but not guaranteed.

COCKTAIL HOUR:

Brad performing solo background acoustic guitar music from current song list.

INSTRUMENTS:

Brad performs on two carbon graphite acoustic electric guitars - a 2011 Rainsong OM-1000 steel string called Fin and a 2013 custom made BlackBird (w/Fishman) nylon string called Eve. 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 a ukelele and a Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 called Wing.

~

TRAVEL:

Please note that Brad operates out of Rockport, MA / Orlando, FL & Lauren operates out of Salisbury, MA.

~

NEEDED:

Brad/Collage do not need too much space. I/we do 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... I bring a small very high end PA for this purpose. If outside, weather should always be considered. I would need to be covered or have a plan that involved moving inside in the event of inclement weather. Tents often used. Ample small PA is usually used (Mackie/JBL/Shure).

~

AUDIO/VIDEO:

Many videos of Brad Lee performing solo acoustic guitar arrangements appropriate for cocktail hours and Brad Lee on guitar and vocal performing music appropriate for happy hours... have been uploaded to this profile.

1 audio of Brad Lee and Lauren Ouellette-Chapman performing Eva Cassidy's version of Over The Rainbow has been uploaded to this profile and many more to the Collage profile recorded via Cakewalk.

~

Over the years, Brad has performed @ 100's of weddings (ceremonies, cocktail hours & receptions) with various ensembles & solo.

In the 90's, Brad and Lauren performed together in the popular 6 piece wedding function band - Classix.

When it has to be perfect... consider Brad Lee / Collage... you'll be glad you did.

We couldn't have asked for a more talented, super professional and nice pair of performers. . Brad and Lauren exceeded our expectations and made our event so memorable, we couldn't have imagined it without them. I'm glad we chose to work with them and highly recommend them to anyone, we will most certainly book them again in the future.

Brad helped us organize the music for the cocktail hour and ceremony at our wedding. He set a beautiful atmosphere with toned down versions of numerous familiar classic songs. He played the melody and harmony together on acoustic. To this day we get compliments about his music. He is the type of musician that knows the perfect song for the perfect moment. If he's unfamiliar with a selection I'm sure he'd learn it for you. We described the mood we wanted, including several important ceremony songs and Brad took care of the rest. Brad treated us honestly and professionally, combined with his talent as a musician and personality I'd recommend him for any event!
