Great guitarist, very friendly and very accommodating to what we wanted. He played two great sessions during drinks and then played when the bride entered and a member of the wedding party sang. He had recorded that song and sent to our friend to practice prior to the day. He then came early to have a run through of the song prior to starting the drinks reception. Kris played a big part in making our day so special.

    FAQs

    Q: "Do you sing, or use any backing tracks or loops?"
    A: No, the music Kris performs is purely instrumental, all arranged solely for acoustic guitar. The absence of any vocals allows for a more casual and non-intrusive sound.

    Q: "Can you play as the bride is walking down the aisle?"
    A: Of course! Potentially, a specific song can also be arranged to make the moment all that more special.

    Q: "Are you able to perform without a PA or any electrical equipment?"
    A: Yes, for certain events / situations (where necessary), a small portable amplifier can be used instead of a PA - or alternatively no amplification whatsoever!
