Exceptional Solo Guitarist Available for Your Special Event
Are you planning an event that may benefit from the elegant, intimate atmosphere of an acoustic solo guitarist? If you think this might be the added touch of class your event might require, please contact me.
My forte is unaccompanied Jazz, Acoustic (a.k.a. "Adult Contemporary") and Classical guitar styles. I've had decades of experience in this genre, as staff guitarist for the Upper St Clair Country Club (nearly 18 years), Alfano's at the Quail, and Palazzo 1837; I've performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra since 2001 (I'm currently their "1st call" guitarist) as well as several other top performing organizations (Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Nat'l Philharmonic Orchestra, Pgh CLO, Pgh Musical Theatre, WV Public Theatre, etc.) and presently hold teaching posts in guitar at two large universities (West Virginia University, West Liberty University) and an exclusive, prominent private college (Washington & Jefferson).
You can trust me to do a professional and artistic performance at your private function. The music is transparent -- no vocals, no drum machines, no tapes or "looping" that might be intrusive to conversation. I'm available for weddings, receptions, cocktails, corporate events, rehearsal dinners, house parties, holiday gatherings, wine tastings, brunches, etc., etc., etc. . . anything that might benefit from the added touch of live ambient background music. I'm comfortable performing for an intimate dinner for two, or a reception of several hundred. Repertoire ranges from Cole Porter to Eric Clapton, Disney to J.S. Bach.
I've been a professional full-time musician since 1979, and a member of the Pgh Musician's Union (American Federation of Musicians, Pgh Local # 60-471) for many years. My fees are very reasonable.
Restaurant / Event Planner inquiries welcome (special rates)!

Thanks again --"

"Scott Elliott is a superb guitarist. I was truely lucky to have run across his web site when I searched acoustic guitarist. He is professional and gracious from the start. I never met with Scott in person prior to the wedding, just phone calls and emails, as he helped me plan out the music. Our special day was made even more special by Scott as all my guests praised his playing as I visited each table."

"It was great meeting you and I am sure we will talk again! We had nothing but positive feedback about the music!"

I was not there but heard WONDERFUL things about the quality of your performance! Bravo! Well done! I was told that you "really classed up the joint" and many said it was the best political event they have ever been to, in large part due to your music. Thanks again for your tremendous effort. I'm sure you will be gearing from me again!"
