Click below to hear David’s arrangement for solo guitar of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desire” by Johann Sebastian Bach, a popular piece for wedding processionals.

A wedding is a very special occasion.  Everything has to be right on this most important of days, and the choice of music will help set the tone for the event. David has a great deal of experience performing at both wedding ceremonies and receptions.  With his versatility in different styles of music, David can play everything from solo instrumental guitar arrangements of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, or Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” to one-man band arrangements of popular tunes like “Careless Whisper” by George Michael or “Saving All My Love for You” by Whitney Houston, to jazz standards like “Autumn Leaves” and “The Girl from Ipanema,” as well as original vocal and instrumental music in popular styles.  For a full listing of covers see his Solo Guitar Repertoire and Popular Music Repertoire.
