Gregory Guay

Classical Soloist


 
 
 

From traditional classical and Latin guitar to gospel, jazz & pop, solo or duo, this artist enjoys working with soon to be newlyweds or a determined bride with a unique vision.  Whether it’s an sea side ceremony on the sand, a beautiful plantation with ancient oaks, a quaint resort, a glorious chapel, a mountain top, or your backyard – Gregory appreciates each unique vision and will work to capture that vision with his music and deliver the music professionally.  Whether it’s traditional wedding music, or perhaps a Latin flare, or even a mix of popular arrangements for guitar, Gregory is able to sculpt the sounds one may  like.  One of the lovely elements of solo classical guitar is its ability to mimic a string trio; playing similar arrangements that a combination of cello, viola, and violin would play. He is also available as a duet, such as guitar with violin, cello, trumpet, flute, or vocals with a jazz or classical style. You can also ask about guitar for a cocktail hour, during dinner, or even something more upbeat like blues, rock, funk, R&B, for your reception.
