About
Thank you for looking into having live music for your event. My name is Bruce Brill. I'm a singer/guitarist/writer and live in Oakland, California. I play music and teach guitar around the Bay Area including San Francisco, Berkeley, San Jose, Marin, Sacramento and Napa. I cover all styles of music from classical and jazz to pop, rock, Latin and flamenco. When I'm not performing a gig, I play weekends at a restaurant in the Piedmont area if you wish to meet and hear me play. I also perform stand-up around the Bay Area and incorporate comedy with music if the client feels it suitable for the occasion. I tailor every event to the client's wishes making it special and memorable for them and their guests.

I cannot praise Bruce enough for the unique element of love and care he brought to our wedding through his music and presence. He worked with us from afar, we're in England, to ensure our wedding went beautifully. Bruce was happy to learn new songs for our time, he looked great, sounded amazing, was punctual and professional and a lovely guy. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to all. Thank you Bruce; you're forever part of our wedding. Can you make it to England for August 24th?

I could never thank Bruce enough for being playing at our sf city hall ceremony. I requested 2 song that were not on the music list but he made it happen. Always replied to my emails in a timely manner. My husband said I did good in booking him. Everyone said how beautiful the music was. Thank you Bruce!!

Bruce blew us away with his performance, professionalism, and presence at our intimate wedding in Big Sur on May 5, 2018! He showed up early and was set up ready to roll ahead of time. He hit it off with our family and connected with many different guests on a personal level. When our officiant showed up an hour and 45 mins late, Bruce was unphased and offered to stay longer into the evening to see us through our important day. His choice of songs and mix between acoustics and vocals was the perfect fit for our wedding. He even reached out after the event and sent tons of pictures and videos he took during the important moments of our wedding day. Thank you!!!!

Bruce was more than willing to learn a difficult song at the request of the bride and groom. He learned it and sent us sound bytes for their input/approval and did not hesitate to make changes if necessary. He was prompt with replies to our questions and kept good communication with us from beginning to end.

Bruce was exactly what we wanted for our 60th birthday event! He was professional, talented and very friendly. He reached out before the event to ensure everything was a go, even asked what attire he should wear. I would strongly recommend Bruce and I will definitely use him again for future parties. Thanks Bruce for being part of our celebration! Christy and Bill
