Paper Moon began in 2004 as a project intending to blur the lines between popular instrumental guitar styles from around the world. Founded by guitarists Scot Taber and Joe Amato – the duo began to explore its wide-ranging musical interests by mixing gypsy jazz, Brazilian rhythms, flamenco, classical pieces, and modern grooves. They incorporated elements from these genres into their original compositions and performed established standards in these styles in front of audiences in Los Angeles and San Diego.
The duo recorded and released the original album Miniatures in 2006 and the follow-up CD Little Venices in 2009, featuring all original compositions with the notable exception of an arrangement of one piece by Spanish composer Francisco Tárrega (“Vals – Tema de Strauss” and “Recuerdos de la Alhambra” respectively). With a third album on the way, Paper Moon continues to explore exotic sounds and styles from the across the globe as it composes, records, and brings its music to the public.
Paper Moon has performed at the famous Spreckels Theatre in downtown San Diego, the historic U.S. Grant Hotel, the W Hotel in Hollywood, Ca, the Grand Del Mar resort, and numerous other resorts, clubs, festivals, music venues, and private residences throughout southern California.

I’m a professional musician and these guys are legit. I would’ve been going crazy if my wedding band was anything less than top quality, and I couldn’t have been happier. Strong recommendation!!Sent on 10/28/2017

Scot and John were great! We hired Papermoon Duo for our wedding and reception. We told them in advance our music taste and they totally customized a set list for us including classic jazz standards, bossa nova, classical, rock and alternative rock. We even asked them if they knew some songs I didn't think they would know and they played those songs as well. They are talented professional musicians and our guests were impressed. I was stoked to have them perform at our wedding and hope I have another chance to hire them again for another event.Sent on 08/22/2017

I hosted two large wine auctions to raise funds for a special charity. We had an elegant venue for our receptions and a broad cross-section of guests. I wanted the evening to be enchanting. Paper Moon was the best choice. Their selection of music blended perfectly with the evening. Scot and Joe are such gifted musicians. Everyone loved their music. Several guests enjoyed watching them play. They even engaged guests by playing special requests. I would recommend Paper Moon for any occasion. They will make your event memorable.Sent on 05/27/2016
