I'm a violinist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist living in Nashville, TN. I offer solo violin music for both ceremony and cocktail hours, and also offer the option of guitar/violin or piano/violin duos, as well as violin/guitar/bass or violin/piano/bass trios. I have played the violin for nearly 30 years performing in such revered venues as Fenway Park in Boston and Grand Ole Opry and Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. I've played multiple events in the Nashville area, and previously in the Boston area, from 2004-2013.
Rates and Repertoire
For ceremonies, I do have a repertoire that can be sent via email. Please contact me for details. Base rate includes learning two new songs (if desired) for ceremony or cocktail hour. Any additional songs to be learned will be billed at 1/3 rate for each musician. If extensive travel is necessary, travel cost will be added (see pricing).
One microphone, one mic stand and one PA speaker can be provided for ceremonies, however it will be an additional cost (see pricing). We as musicians will be responsible for bringing our own sound depending on requirements.

Better than anything we could ever dream of!
WOW! We made the absolute BEST decision when we hired Jon as our wedding musician. He is beyond talented and all of our guests said that his music totally set the stage for the elegant feel of our wedding and cocktail reception. They could not get over how beautiful both his playing and voice were. We were able to give Jon a vague description of what we wanted and he took the reigns and ran with our vision. We ended up doing a violin and classical guitar duo and Jon even surprised us by singing during the cocktail portion of the event! It was such a treat! From the beginning, we totally trusted him. He learned two new songs for us that were incredibly special to us as a couple and executed both perfectly. He is 100% professional, accommodating and quick to respond to any question. He made our day completely magical and we would highly recommend him!!Sent on 05/01/2019
