Doug Hare’s 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 fiancé. 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

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.Sent on 09/09/2020

The perfect touch
Doug pulled through for me at an art reception very last minute. His performance really made my event! His professional intuition proved perfect for the feel my event needed. He is passionate about his work and it shows.Sent on 07/30/2019

For anyone interested in quality entertainment with outstanding musical aptitude, Doug Hare Music is the only choice.Sent on 07/07/2017
If you want folks to jump in and sign along or if you prefer the background tunes of an accomplish musician, look no further!
We’ve had Doug work with us over the years and have found no one more accommodating. His customized sections are always tailored to meet your needs.
Our most recent engagement with Doug had him performing for over 100 people at the Columbus Zoo with background music (and singing). For days after our event people were calling and commenting on how wonderfully he performed.
Whether at the Zoo or a more formal Wedding at the Blackwell Inn, Doug has everyone asking who is that man and where did you find him. How lucky we are to know this musical wonder!!
