Event and Wedding Music

Wedding Ceremonies, Business Dinners, and more

For over 15 years I’ve worked with couples providing beautiful Wedding Ceremony and Reception Music in the Atlanta and North Georgia Areas.  In addition, I do events and business dinners in the surrounding states of Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, and Florida. There is a very good chance I’ve worked at your wedding venue or event hall before.

What’s available?

Solo Acoustic Guitar

This is great for Wedding Ceremonies, cocktail hours, or business dinners.  I also provide live music for anniversary parties, birthdays, and more.  Acoustic guitar blends in well for almost any circumstance.

 

Solo Banjo

I’ve seen an increase in couples booking me to play solo banjo at their weddings.  I’ve played classical, popular, and country songs during these wedding ceremonies and receptions.  Banjo also is great for an upbeat business meeting as well.  I do everything from bluegrass to more sophisticated sounds on the banjo.

 

 

Guitar/Violin Duo

This could be anything you’d like.  We do popular music, folk and bluegrass with my violinist.  Sometimes you want a bit more sound than a solo artist provides without breaking the budget, this is a good choice.  Duos are good for blending in without being too loud, providing a great ambiance and background that’s sure to impress your friends and colleagues.  Here is traditional wedding music (Canon in D) and a nice waltz.

Bluegrass Trio

Looking for a bluegrass band in the Atlanta area?  This would be myself on banjo/guitar + Violin + Upright Bass.  We do all the bluegrass standards and favorites like Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Man of Constant Sorrow and more.  At the same time, it doesn’t HAVE to be bluegrass, our trio can do an evening of more popular stuff mixed in like the beatles, U2, Bob Dylan, and more.  More about the bluegrass Trio:

TESTIMONIALS

“We hired Jody to play guitar while our guests arrived at our wedding, to play the music during our wedding ceremony, and then to play background music during our cocktail hour. Though we did not get to personally meet Jody, I spoke with him on the phone and emailed with him back and forth. He was very responsive and communicative throughout the whole process. He was able to accommodate our song requests and played beautifully. We got numerous compliments about his playing and would recommend him for other similar situations!”

“We contracted Jody to be our ceremony musician. Jody was super easy to work with leading up to our wedding day. Because of all of the craziness of the actual day, we didn’t get to meet Jody in person but our coordinator told us later that he was super professional and great to work with. Jody ability as a musician is great and the he played all of the songs we requested beautifully. We definitely recommend Jody to anyone that wants a very talented guitarist for their wedding.”
