$300 - $8800 per event
I play in Chicago with the leading musicians, in groups playing the Classical repertoire, Gypsy jazz, Latin music, Romanian folk and Gypsy music, Klezmer, and traditional Middle Eastern music. I've played hundreds of wedding ceremonies of all ilks, and a similar number of corporate events. I will make sure the music portion of your event goes smoothly, so you can focus on what's important.

I can come as a solo violinist or with any number of musicians. Everyone I play with is an experienced professional, with diverse backgrounds. I am always the leader on my Gigmaster gigs– I do not send out a "B" band.

For corporate event managers I assure easy logistics- we are self contained and know the ropes. We have probably played in the venue you are using for this event.

We were so happy with Mr. Gibons' performance and the pianist her brought to play at our wedding. First, he was very professional and fun on the phone. He was very enthusiastic when discussing our special request that we wanted for our wedding, for two songs from the British heavy metal band, Iron Maiden, to be played for our ceremony. Mr. Gibons took the time to learn the song Infinite Dreams, which was played during the bride's entrance, and The Trooper as we walked down the aisle as husband and wife. Our guests loved what Mr. Gibons did. He was an amazing part of our wedding. Highly recommended. Definitely have him play your cocktail hour!

Steve was by far the best vendor I have ever worked with. He is easy to get in touch with, he is very talented, so very professional and lovely to talk to. I enjoyed all of our conversations leading up to the wedding. Steve is definitely a five star musician and professional. Everyone at our wedding enjoyed his music. Steve played for our wedding ceremony and for our cocktail hour. I have people complimenting our violinist still 6 months after the wedding. Thank you Steve for your WONDERFUL service. 6 out of 5 stars. Thank you so much.

Steve was an absolute professional. Although I hired him for a one hour proposal he treated the gig as if it was a long and lucrative engagement. He spoke with me several times in advance, until I was satisfied that he knew my surprise proposal plans as well as I did. Furthermore, he took the time to learn songs that had special meaning to my now fiance and I. He played beautifully and transitioned between different genres masterfully. The best part is that his rates are very reasonable, making a broke romantic like myself look great. If your event must go perfectly, then there is no other option... book Steve!
