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)!




"Scott ---

We just want to again thank you for playing at our wedding on Sept 2nd. The music was exactly what we hoped for. We received many compliments on it & you certainly helped to complete our day.

Thanks again --"

John and Susan L. (Sept 2, 2012)



"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."

Susan B (August 18, 2012)



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

Shelly M., The Washington Hospital Foundation (Re: Donor Reception, Sept 13, 2012)



"Scott,

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!"

Scott was a great choice for our office party. His music really provided the perfect atmosphere, while still allowing everyone to carry on conversations. He played beautifully and chose a variety of songs and also switched between a few different guitars.. I was very impressed by how smoothly it went and I was glad I didn't have to worry about any guests not appreciating the music. Everyone agreed that the party wouldn't have been a success without the music, and there was a noticeable absence during the few breaks that Scott took. I'm hoping we'll get the chance to use him again!

Excellent Musician! Scott's guitar playing was outstanding. His music selections were perfect for our event for 30 people and guests were very complementary and appreciative with genuine applause. I was impressed that he used three guitars, each specific for a particular type of music (pop, show tunes, classical. I would highly recommend him to others.
