About Kari Smith Music

Besides her talents of songwriting, singing in both English and Spanish, and playing several instruments, Kari Smith aims to deliver a full experience that begins with the first contact, and doesn't end until the moment your wedding is over! With over 15 years of experience - a decade of that in Nashville - under her belt, Kari has returned to her native Virginia, and maintains a full schedule of live music performances in addition to corporate / private events, and weddings.

  • Rehearsal Dinner music - Enjoy the "night before" with acoustic music accompaniment at your rehearsal dinner! Choose from Kari's extensive set list - or leave all the work to her.
  • Ceremony music - Whether you have picked a song with your loved one, or need ideas, Kari can bring them to life! With the versatility of either piano or guitar accompaniment (or both), she has a wide array of options to offer.
  • Cocktail Hour / Dinner music - Provide a smooth transition between your ceremony and reception with light cocktail music. With more than 1 PA system, Kari is able to set up for more than one location for quick transition between the two.
  • Reception music - If your reception is intimate, or in a smaller space, a solo musician can be a great alternative to a large band! Kari uses a Bose L1 MII system which is rated for up to 500 people, yet sounds perfect in any sized room or outdoors. She can also switch to DJ mode if you'd like to pick up the pace for dancing, as well as serve as emcee and provide microphones for toasts.

Kari is also available for proposal serenades, bridal showers, and more! Contact for a free estimate.

    Kari did an excellent job from my first email and phone call with her to helping me plan her singing for my proposal night.
    She coordinated with the Hotel Management, set up on her own and performed outside in very cold weather to make the moment very special. I would recommend her to anyone looking to add a professional singer to their event. First time I hired a singer and will definitely not be the last time. Also, pricing for the experience was very good and felt great that invested in having Kari there to sing for us.

    Positive wedding ceremony experience

    Kari was very helpful through the whole process. She was flexible with music selection and worked with our vision. She played beautifully on our wedding day and our guests were very complimentary of her professionalism and talent. I would highly recommend Kari to another couple for their wedding music or any other type of event!

    The best!!

    Where to begin!! Kari is nothing short of amazing. She performed for the cocktail hour and reception at my wedding which was outdoors in pretty chilly temperatures!! She performed live as well as took care of introducing us, announcing the first dance, father daughter dance, etc. and she even DJ’d towards the end.

    My whole experience working with Kari was an absolute pleasure. Right from the beginning she was very helpful, quick to respond to my questions and detailed in her answers. She was willing to learn new songs and did so quickly! She is so talented and was the perfect addition to our wedding. Our guests absolutely loved her - people couldn’t believe the performance was live that’s how good she is. Our guests would not stop raving about how wonderful she was!! She is not only an amazing singer and musician but she is super sweet and always had a warm smile on her face the entire wedding!

    The decision to hire Kari for our wedding was the best choice we could have made - hands down!! I would highly recommend Kari if you are in need for music for your wedding or any other event. She was one of the main pieces to making our wedding such an amazing day!! Also, prices are very reasonable! To conclude, she’s so good that I’m literally trying to come up with more events to plan so that I can work with her again :)! Thank you Kari!!
