Repertoire includes: Standards, Pop/Rock songs new and old, Brazilian Bossa Novas, Spanish/Mexican favorites, a few Classical pieces, some Country, and some Reggae. For your event, I can give you a mix of everything, kind of like having your Itunes on shuffle, or if you prefer to have a specific mood or vibe set, I'll focus on one or two styles of your choosing.
Perfect in every aspect. His professionalism was second-to-none and his talent/ability unquestionable. He played a variety of songs all to our taste and liking as previously discussed prior to the wedding. All in all we could not have been happier with Sam's professionalism and kind nature. We would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a guitarist. Perfect! Thank you, Sam.

I love playing my guitar for people, be it a small, intimate get-together of 20 or so people or a large celebration of 200 or more guests. My repertoire of 300+ tunes will appeal to listeners both young and not-so-young. I enjoy bringing to life memorable, classic standards from the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's, made popular by singers such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, etc. But then again, sometimes there's nothing better than a cool, vibey, classic rock song from the 60's, 70's, 80's, or 90's like Over the Hills and Far Away, Dancing With Myself or maybe Wonderwall. Maybe current pop music is your thing, then how about Lorde, or The Killers, or Death Cab for Cutie. If Uncle Paul and Aunt Betty want to rub bellys on the dance floor, a little Bossa Nova will do the trick like Corcovado, One Note Samba or a number of other Jobim compositions.
All the music I play is upbeat, fun, timeless and very romantic. It is always my goal to make your special event: wedding, birthday party, anniversary party, dinner party, just as upbeat, fun, romantic and memorable. I love taking requests. If I know it I'll play it, if not, then with a little advanced notice, I will be more than happy to learn it. I can work on short notice, no problem with travelling, own all of my equipment including a small sound system. To see and hear samples of my playing, take a quick look/listen to some of my recordings that are featured on this page. Any questions, feel free to contact me directly.
