Weddings with Brian Kelly, Guitar and Vocals

Congratulations on your engagement and forthcoming wedding! I provide instrumental acoustic guitar, Americana roots/folk and some choice classical tunes, as well as vocals. I have played for weddings in all phases: pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner/reception and rehearsal dinners.
Please scroll down to see my wedding song list and my YouTube videos to get a better idea of my style, which I have honed while being a professional solo acoustic guitarist/vocalist for over 30 years. (See my full music biography here.)

* Wedding Music Sample List *

Below is a list of some of the music I perform at weddings. Many of them were added to my repertoire by request for particular couples. I can also play any of the many folk and traditional songs I know as part of a ceremony/reception. We’ll work together to find the music that will mean the most to you. If I don’t know a song you request, I can learn it for you if I have sufficient lead time.

I provide instrumental guitar and vocals for pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner/reception – please see my full solo song list (a list of hundreds of tunes) and additional audio and video clips. On acoustic guitar, I play traditional and folk rock songs, Beatles tunes, Americana roots music, etc; whatever kind of mix you prefer, both fingerstyle and with a plectrum.
My being both a guitarist and singer gives you flexibility if you need someone to both play acoustic guitar and also sing a special song for your ceremony.  I can learn a particular request for your wedding or party, so let’s talk.
Whether you're thinking formal or folksy for your ceremony, whatever your vision, run it by me. My experience with a variety of venues over the past 30 years has made me both versatile and adaptable.  And I do enjoy working with couples whose plans are a bit “non-traditional”!

Step 1:  Listening: Contact me, and I'll listen intently to your ideas and plans, then use my experience to help you pin down the details. I understand that your wedding vision is unique. A small deposit will reserve your date.
Step 2: Setting it up: We'll work together to assemble the music for your day, including your processional and recessional, and perhaps a special song for your ceremony. We'll express that unique vision you both have! I’d be happy to provide music for the cocktail hour, or even beyond. As your day draws near, we'll pin down the final details and logistics.
Step 3: Enjoy your Wedding Day
