James Michael, Guitar & Vocalist For Wedding and Private Parties

Solo Guitarist/Vocalist

Let’s say you know you want to create some great ambiance for your dinner party or small corporate event! Perhaps you don’t have a big budget or you have a limited performance space and volume is an issue. You may want some instrumental  “background” music to set the tone, but then energize the festivities with a one-man-band that sings and plays some of the best tunes in pop music. Most entertainers are limited by being able to only do one or the other. When you book James , you don’t have to choose between the two. From his formal studies of Classical and Brazilian guitar to his many years performing in several local dance bands and ensembles, he offers a deep repertoire that spans from the Renaissance to ethnic to contemporary popular music. Using a special p.a. system designed to give an even volume across the room that is located behind him instead of in front of your guest’s tables insures a perfect blend that won’t compete with the party, but will amiably enhance it.

Instead of booking a seperate vocalist/musician, you may be able to take care of your ceremony needs by booking just one person. To hear James tap into his formal classical guitar chops, click the video tab on this page for samples of eight classical guitar wedding ceremony options.
