5-stars on Yelp

I'm always pleased to hear from my clients. Here are some reviews of my services as a solo guitarist for local San Francisco Bay area weddings:

Heidi C. of Walnut Creek said: 5 star rating

We can't say enough good things about Fred! My husband and I searched and searched for the perfect musician for our wedding but when we met Fred we hired him immediately! He was very flexible, met with us several times prior to our event and even learned to play the song for our first dance. Fred arrived at our event early, was professionally dressed and coordinated with our officiant for the music during the ceremony. Not only were we happy with his performance, but our guests were raving about his talent throughout our entire event! Fred's Spanish Classical guitar was the perfect accompaniment to our winery wedding and we highly recommend him for your event as well!

We hired Fred to play classic Spanish style guitar before our recent wedding, send us out with some dramatic flamenco style music on the recessional, and more Spanish style during the cocktail hour and part of the reception. Fred was great, very flexible, on time, reasonable rates, and most importantly excellent playing! You can tell he loves playing and it shows. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

San Francisco Classical Guitar Duel - Guitar Fred vs. Jard

I rarely perform in public and I'm excited to be part of a classical guitar "duel" with another classical musician, Jard Davis, as part of Bay Area Classical Harmonies (BACH) Last Friday Concert series at Pro Arts Gallery. The music program will vary from Bach to Villa Lobos. If you're local to the East Bay or San Francisco, please enjoy a glass of wine and great music at Pro Arts Gallery's new space at Frank Ogawa Plaza, near the 12st Street BART. Tickets are $18 (general), $15 (seniors) or $12 (students). Click here to buy tickets today.

In the meantime, I've been busy this summer teaching and also playing weddings. If you're interested in lessons or hiring me for a wedding, please visit my new website, to listen to music, read testimonials and learn more about me. Thanks!
