$200 - $800 per event
Scott Kacenga is a solo, instrumental guitarist specializing in weddings and other special events throughout the Tri-State area. Scott performs unique, beautiful interpretations of popular, jazz, and classical music. In addition to pure solo arrangements, he uses looping technology to create seamless melodies and improvisations over a second guitar part (2 musicians for the price of one!).
Scott plays an electric-classical Godin, an instrument that combines the warmth and intimacy of a classical guitar with the versatility of an electric instrument. A microphone will be made available free of charge upon request. Self–powered amplification is available for performances outside (e.g., parks, beaches, vineyards, boats, etc.).
Based out of Brooklyn, Scott serves New York City as well as New York state, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much do you charge?
Rates are based on a variety of factors, and generally range from $300-$800. A deposit is required upon the signing of the contract.

What about music before the ceremony?
Typically the pre-ceremony music (Prelude) is 20–30 min. long. Therefore, if your ceremony begins at 5 PM, you want to hire your performer from 430.

Do you use amplification?
Yes. I provide the necessary equipment and have battery-powered amplification for events where no power is available.

Do you have any specific setup requirements? I require one electrical outlet and one armless chair.

Do you take requests? I am always looking to expand my repertoire, and will typically be able to learn new pieces at no extra cost.

What about ceremony music? In general, I recommend choosing one song for the wedding party, one for each partner processing, and something for the recessional when the ceremony is over. I play lots of weddings and am happy to provide recommendations should you need them.

What do you wear?
Formal black attire, unless otherwise specified.

When do you arrive?
45 min. before the agreed-upon start time.

Do we meet in person?
Typically all arrangements can be made by phone, e-mail, or Skype. However if you prefer to meet in person, I am happy to schedule a meeting in New York City.

When is the final payment due?
The final payment is due the day of your event. For weddings I recommend delegating payment delivery to a family member or someone in the wedding party.

Scott was absolutely amazing! He was completely accommodating with our song selection and even learned a new song just for our ceremony. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Scott was always attentive to our emails leading up to our big day. He was very insightful when necessary. Upon the big day, he arrived on time and ready to go. He was self sufficient and did not require any help. His set during our ceremony was beautiful and he followed the cues perfectly. Although I didn't get to enjoy his set during cocktail hour, I heard nothing but good things about his playing. Scott will definitely get our recommendation for any future events!

We hired Scott to play at our wedding Ceremony this past November and he well exceeded our expectations! Coordinating with him ahead of time was an ease, he responded quickly to answer all of my questions and gave me a strong sense of confidence that he was one vendor I didn't need to stress about! He arrived early to set up and corrdinated wonderfully with all of our vendors. Hearing his music live as I walked down the isle was truly awesome as he is so talented and moving with his music style. We are so happy we choose him, his music truly added a special meaningful moment to our wedding day. Thanks Scott!!! -Rosie + Chris
