Most local musicians who advertise themselves as professionals are not extensively trained. After all, anyone can say they play music for weddings and private parties. Mark, on the other hand, guarantees the highest degree of professionalism and live music that is world class quality. Having earned advanced degrees, including a D0ctorate, he has undergone rigorous conservatory training and has worked with the best in the field, including famed American classical guitar icon, Christopher Parkening. When you hire Mark, you can rest assured that you are hiring a real professional musician.
Mark has played for and organized music for countless weddings for over 10 years. He will work with you to bring your dream wedding music to life. If you are unsure of what you want, you can rest assured that, with his expertise, Mark will help you decide on the perfect program for your special day. Having put together weddings of countless different themes (Beatles, Baroque, Van Morrison, Hawaiian, Mexican Folk, Spanish Romantic, Classical, Flamenco, Jason Mraz, French Classics, Cole Porter, Bach, and Led Zeppelin just to name a few of the ones that are often requested), Mark can and will make your vision happen.
A typical wedding provided by Mark can go as follows: he arrives early to provide prelude music while the guests arrive. He will then play music during the special moments of the ceremony as requested by clients. After the ceremony, he plays for the postlude until the guests clear the area. Following the ceremony, Mark frequently entertains for a cocktail hour, reception, and dinner.
If you would like Mark to organize the music for the entire wedding, great! If you only want music provided for one or two parts of the wedding, he is delighted to help with that too!
