About Neil Dixon Smith

Greetings! I am a classical guitarist based in Chicago, Illinois and I would love to play for your wedding!

I've been performing for weddings since 2005, serviing mainly Chicagoland but I'm always happy to travel North to Green Bay, East to SW Michigan or South to the Indianapolis area.

I specialize in providing both ceremony and reception music. For ceremony music I can offer a full range of everyting from traditional wedding music, to honoring your requests of favorite songs, to offering suggestions from my repertoire for something wholly unique.

For receptions I dig into my fantastic repertoire of music from Latin America - high energy party music from Brazil, Cuba, and Argentina for cocktail hours, and then deeply romantic pieces for dinner music. This is the greatest guitar there is and everything I do is highly entertaining to all generations of music fans.

I welcome you to check out my video samples here, and for the latest please do visit my main site:

I do enjoy being a part of the ceremony planning process and I'm always happy to share my experience. I welcome the oppotunity to set up a meeting to talk through your vision of the day before any decisions are made - you will appreciate my professionalism and positivity as much as my musicianship.

    Amazing music!

    Neil was AMAZING! Very responsive and helpful. Our wedding ended up being warmer than anticipated but he was there playing beautiful music with zero signs of worry. He also helped us with any questions we had and was very easy to chat with and get ahold of. Really appreciate all the effort he put into learning our first dance song as well. Thank you Neil!
