$200 - $750 per event
I play and sing a variety of styles including rock and jazz on acoustic and electric guitar as appropriate for the occasion and as requested by the host. Please view my client feedback, song list and view/listen to my video and audio samples. A soft, solo jazz style known as 'chord melody' is perfect for cocktail hours or any time that tasteful background music is desired. ('Chord melody' is a jazz guitar style that is complete, melodically, rhythmically and harmonically while played as a solo rendition.) Also, Soft Rock and Classic Rock, tunes that will be familiar to just about everyone. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Communication from NYIT in 1984, my curriculum included several electives in music theory, sight singing and ear training (the later at The Manhattan School of Music). I worked as a Suffolk County Police Officer for 20 plus years. The lack of regularity inherent in the rotating shifts that I was required to work motivated me to develop a solo or one man band model of performance and I have been gigging as such for many years now. Ultimately we are all self taught weather in music or other crafts and skills, but the experience (or requirement in many cases) of having excellent instruction is of unmeasurable benefit in whatever we pursue. I had the blessing of studying music with Billy Bauer the guitarist for the Benny Goodman, Woody Herman and NBC Orchestras of many years as well as Joe Monk, a Long Islander of legendary skills as a teacher and performer. Additionally, I had the good fortune of taking private lessons from several instructors from Five Towns College, (an accredited college of musical performance and of the business aspects of the music industry here on L.I.). Thank you for considering my music for your event, Terry Brady.

Terry was superb. A major contribution to the success of our mothers 100th birthday party, Terry received praise from many guests and from the Guest of Honor herself. We would recommend him highly. A gentleman and true professional. 5 stars not enough. Bob & Lynn Sholl

Terry Brady is a wonderful, talented man. He went above & beyond what you can expect, he learned three songs for me within a couple of weeks of my wedding & did a great job with them. My quests along with my husband & me truly enjoyed his music. Terry, thank you again!!! Hope to see you again.

I hired Terry Brady for a corporate cocktail party on relatively short notice. He was punctual and professional, and it all went very smoothly. But I can't say enough good things about his music! The style he plays — light, but sophisticated sounding jazz that's not at all difficult on the ears — was a natural fit for anyone who wants music that is both pleasant to hear but also easy to blend into the background. It should say enough that we have asked Terry to come back and perform for us again at future events. I would easily recommend Terry Brady for anyone who needs a talented guitar entertainer for their event. -MJS, 9/1/10
