I am not an LA bee, but I am planning to wed in Santa Barbara.  I am also thinking of using a guitarist at my wedding.  Most posts on the website santabarbarawedding.com, list some great ones that might work in the general area and may be willing to travel.  I seem to recall seeing mention of LA musicians who might travel down to SB, so you be sure to look there for a few more ideas.

I hired a former student of mine to play guitar and sing during my ceremony.  When is your wedding?  Mine is in less than a month, if you want I can give you a "recommendation" after the wedding.  I wouldn’t do so now because this would be his first paid event.  I’ve seen him perform dozens of time, and he is great, but he is also just breaking into the professional world.  PM me if you are interested.  He learned "Soul Meets Body" just for me on his guitar — not a "typical" wedding song. He also plays piano beautifully!

Mine is 8/9/08 — I don’t get back from my honeymoon until 8/18/08 – will that be too late for me to give you a recommendation?  He is doing a "preview" for me next week, I can let you know how it goes and then give you his number/email and you could interview him…

I know a great one!  His name is Mateo and he played our engagement party in May.  We discovered him at a local restaurant, and he plays beautiful guitar, and sings romantic songs in Spanish, italian and english! He’s a pleasure to work with and really adds to a party.  Here’s his email: [email protected]<div id=”:4g” class=”udg9X”>com<div id=”:4g” class=”udg9X”>Tell him Dana sent you!  His rates are super reasonable too.<div id=”:4g” class=”udg9X”>xo

Yes, he is – our party was at Griffith Park.  You can check out some samples here:

I can’t recommend him highly enough – everyone loved him!
