A Professional Musician for Weddings, Parties, and Special Events

I play an eclectic mix of American and Latin Jazz, Brazilian, classical, rock renditions and original music.  Venues include weddings, receptions, wineries, restaurants, yard parties – anywhere acoustic solo guitar music is appropriate.  I am more than happy to adjust the set list to the particular performance.  Since weddings are the most personal playing engagement, I can help with all the musical details, including arranging special songs for the occasion.  Thanks for your consideration, I look forward to the opportunity to play for your event- large or small.

An Awesome time with Ford at the Valentine’s Brunch!

Ford played our Valentine’s Day Brunch at our restaurant, Delicatus. He set a great tone to the afternoon. A wonderful mix of classical and modern arrangements set the perfect ambience for a romantic day. I highly recommend him and he will be on top of my list for our up-coming events. Thanks Ford!

Ford made our wedding awesome!

Ford did our wedding music and reception. Friends and family commented on his very fine playing and had a great time visiting with him. We wanted a laid-back feeling environment. We trusted Ford to play whatever he wanted. When I was visiting with guests; I’d ask them what was your favorite thing at the wedding, thinking they say the cake or the smoked salmon on cucumber stuff. It was you have live guitar music and He’s great.

Our event: was outdoor wedding / reception with 60 guests. background music. We did our own wedding and catering.

Ford was setup on the deck with a couple of chairs next to him, so people could visit with him.

Before the wedding Ford contacted us and helped us figure out our wedding service music details- there is a lot of little details. How long does it take walk down the aisle? How many people in the wedding party, where is the bride going to enter the area, number of guests, ect…

Ford exceeded our expectations. His only requirement was an armless chair. His music kept the rehearsal dinner lively. Fords price was fair. We had no surprises, a good thing, great music enjoyed by everyone from age 2 to 90. Thank you for sharing your music with our family.

Delightful – perfect for the occasion

Ford played for a public meeting and celebration we held in October. He played background while attendees signed in and chatted before the formal presentation. He is clearly accomplished, and the music selections (renditions of popular music like the Beatles), were excellent. The music weaved through the activities, drawing your attention without distracting you from work or conversation. It was relaxing and delightful. Ford is professional, arrived on time, set up easily. I recommend him.

Ford is a very nice person with a smooth easy style. He plays beautifully and has a wide range of genres at his fingertips. His music fit perfectly as the backdrop for many of the day’s emotional moments as well as the focal point as people gravitated to his playing. We were very fortunate to have chosen Ford for our daughter’s wedding and his music will always be a part of our fondest memories of that day.
Thanks Ford!

Ford Delivered on all accounts!

We had Ford play a 50th wedding anniversary for my parents and he did an amazing job. We wanted to have live music that allowed for conversation – what he played was a perfect fit. He also delivered on the little things, getting there early, coordinating breaks well within the program, and managing the ferry system to Lummi Island during dry dock. We were so glad to have Ford play our event and would hire him again in a second!

Perfect for our Fiesta Dinner entertainment

Ford was great to work with and quick to respond when coordinating details. He covered details in the planning process I wouldn’t have thought about, and the Flamenco/Latin background music for our dinner event turned out perfect because of his attention to detail. Many guests commented that the music was great and helped set the mood of the event.
