$150 - $1500 per event
Remember: NO BOOKING FEE!!! Picture if you will, a relaxed ambient setting, the lights turned down low, and the soothing sound of jazz filling the air; that jazz, courtesy of Art Ballad, a New England based jazz guitarist that has been sparking interest and turning heads since arriving on the local music scene several years ago. What makes this musician so unique is his well thought out arrangements, and the creative intertwining of musical ideas on each piece he plays. Not one to rely on electronic devices to create background accompaniment, Art possesses a sophisticated harmonic sense and the ability to create melody lines, rhythm and bass figures, and when appropriate, percussion sounds which adds fullness not usually associated with unaccompanied guitar.

Whether it is a modern take on jazz standard or a jazzy twist on a popular tune, his complete mastery of 'fingerstyle' technique brings a remarkable new quality to the art of solo guitar playing.

Very professional, showed up early and drove a long way to do so. Knocked it out of the park with his performance. Great job all around

Art B. did a wonderful job, was professional and accommodating. He knew exactly what to play to keep the crown engaged without me having to even ask or make suggestions. He was a wonderful performer all around.
