Doug Hare鈥檚 greatest strengths are his flexibility and broad repertoire. This is your wedding and he enjoys tailoring the music to it. Because he can play classical favorites as well as arrange requests without sheet music, he is basically limitless to sculpt the music to set whatever tone you are looking for. For example, a bride wanted music to suit her needs exactly but had no idea where to begin. Doug took an entire evening to consult with her and her fianc茅. They decided upon a wide array of music including classical and pop favorites on solo piano as well as jazz with singing. Doug even learned Enya from the recording for this occasion. The only rule to what is appropriate is the tone you wish to present to your guests.

For cocktail receptions, Doug pays attention to your guests so he can play the songs that create an audience response, depending on the occasion and your wishes. He finds out before your event whether you want all jazz, all pop and country, or a mix. It is up to you. He can play everything from Sinatra to the Beatles to Rascall Flatts, as well as his own songs, when appropriate. Hare would be pleased to entertain at your ceremony and/or cocktail reception. Do not worry if your venue does not have a piano. Doug can bring his own electric piano that sounds tremendous

Amazing Pianist and Vocalist!

I first heard Doug play piano during my daughter's ballet classes and his music and presents were amazing. When we decided to get married, Doug was the first person to come to mind to perform for our wedding reception. He was so easy to work with and was willing to meet all our requests. He truly made our day so special everyone had an amazing time! We highly recommend Doug!

Perfect Wedding Music!!

Doug Hare was an amazing choice for our wedding and dinner music! He was willing to learn a new song to sing for my procession that he played and sang perfectly. His music choices for dinner encouraged guests to jump in and sign along. Everyone loved him! Can't recommend him enough!

Fabulous to work with!

Doug has been a friend of our gallery (3060 Artworks) since we opened. He has played for us at multiple receptions and always does an excellent job! Whether he plays solo, or as part of his Love Note duo, or trio, people really respond to his music. He has just the right mix for the occasion, and intuitively knows what will work. He has also come through for us in crisis, and is extremely reliable and professional. I would recommend Doug without reservation, and will continue to host him for our events.
