Why Choose A Classical/Jazz Guitarist For Your Wedding?

Why choose a classical/jazz guitarist for your wedding? Couples put in countless hours of work to make their upcoming wedding perfect. Choosing the right music is one of the important decisions they need to make. The guitar is one of the most romantic and versatile of all instruments. It will provide the perfect ambience for your special day. The guitar lends itself to many diverse styles of music and solo guitarists do not need much space especially in some function rooms where space is at a premium. Wedding ceremonies and receptions will hold treasured memories for years to come. For this reason they deserve very special care to ensure the right ambiance is created. The solo classical guitar is the ideal choice to complement wedding ceremonies whether it is providing background music as friends and family arrive for the ceremony or playing your favourite tune as you walk down the aisle. As an instrument the guitar can play different styles of music and so appeal to a wide range of musical preferences – an important consideration when so many guests have different musical tastes! The guitar can also be performed outside or indoors as required. Having a premiere classical/jazz guitarist for your wedding ceremony and reception not only sets the perfect mood and acoustic ambiance but also provides an elegant experience where the many generations of guests will be able to converse easily.

Weddings can be quite expensive. Having a classical/jazz guitarist will help you stay within budget. Price is primarily determined by the number of hours of performance, travel distance and the popularity of the guitarist. Sometimes if a new arrangement of a musical piece is requested an additional payment may be required. It is also a great idea to ask the guitarist for some suggestions. Wedding guitarists are very sensitive to individual tastes so should be able to provide you with a list of songs to choose from. Be sure to allow the guitarist ample time to prepare for the event. Book at least six weeks before your wedding date if possible.

Jazztalk At The Maiden City Festival In August 2012

In August 2012 Jazztalk took part in The Maiden City Festival in Derry. The Maiden City Festival introduces new performances and artists within and around the walls of the city during the August holiday period and is a major visitor attraction on the north west’s summer calendar. As always, the line-up promises a home for all those who wish to celebrate drama, music, song or dance. The Festival offers something for everyone and works hard to bring pride and tourist trade to the city. This gig was part of the festival’s culture bite series which is a diverse range of free lunchtime performances in cafés and lunch spots within the city walls everyday from Monday to Friday. The smooth running of the festival would not be possible without the great organisational skills of David Hoey and the organisers and it was a great pity that David could not stay longer and hear the jazz trio but his role means that he can only catch performers for a brief moment.

The festival continues to go from strength to strength and Jazztalk played outside Cafe Del Mondo in the craft village. The trio got a great reception from a very appreciative audience made up of locals and tourists who enjoyed jazz standards and latin classics. Jazztalk hope to play in the festival again next year and to also include a jazz guitar workshop for beginners.
