"One of the very best acoustic guitarists in the world....music of the most exquisite order."
Matt Fink, All Music Guide

Guitarist and composer Michael DeLalla's music is a delicious brew of traditional influences and classical, jazz, Celtic, World Music and folk stylings. A trained classical guitarist, he can bring a wide-reaching repertoire to any occasion, drawing on traditions worldwide. Weddings, corporate events and concert series are a specialty. Michael's longstanding reputation is built on his ability to communicate with first the client to establish the precise needs of the performance, then the audience with his solid and professional presentation.
Michael also works with a number of other musicians, guitarists and other instrumentalists/vocalists, if you prefer a duo or trio configuration.

FAQ about Michael DeLalla

“I see you tour nationally—do you even consider small intimate affairs, like a backyard wedding?”
MD: I most certainly do—in fact, I bring the same warm, engaging performance to your event that I do to the concert stage. We just need to coordinate our calendars.

“We're a multi-national corporation that hosts an annual party for our international contingent. What could you do for our event?”
MD: I have spent a professional lifetime exploring musical traditions found all over the world. With my compositions and arrangements for solo guitar (and voice, if you like—I also sing, in a few languages) you could expect to hear evocations of Japanese Koto to Celtic fiddle tunes to a Shona song for mbira to American jazz standards to ancient Breton songs to a homage to the middle-Eastern o'ud.

“Could you bring a group?”
MD: Depending on availability I have a large number of musical colleagues from whom I could put together a duo, trio or more.

"Do you take requests?"
I pride myself on constantly expanding my repertoire--that's often accomplished by the client requesting their special music. I'm happy to accommodate those requests.

"Michael DeLalla's finger-style guitar genius is akin to that of Tony McManus … of a class of what I call the Unholy Triumvirate of the American Acoustic Guitar: David Bromberg, John Fahey, and Leo Kottke…a guitar guru…"

It was a pleasure to meet Michael. He was amazing! He has a large range of music he plays, and he had great ideas throughout the ceremony for music. He saw him in concert as well, it was beautiful! I was so happy we chose him, he made my dream wedding at the Stanley Hotel, even more beautiful :) Thank you Michael!
