The acoustic guitar has a beauty and intimacy which is the perfect compliment of a wedding ceremony.
I play a large variety of classical, latin, flamenco, jazz and arranged popular music.
If you have a favourite song, or one that is special to you as a couple for any reason, I can arrange a solo guitar version for your ceremony or reception. I have arranged countless songs for weddings, everything from Bach to Coldplay to Brian Adams.
I have twenty years experience playing at weddings in Adelaide. I have also done countless other gigs, from casual work functions to formal recitals. My education as a musician is ongoing, and I am currently studying a masters in guitar performance on a full scholarship at the Elder Conservatorium.
If you are looking for ideas for your ceremony or reception, why not meet with me for an obligation free consultation/audition. I can play through a range of repertoire, and talk about ideas for arranging music of your choice.
"We had such a wonderful experience having Aloysius playing at both our wedding ceremony and reception. In the lead up to our wedding we enjoyed meeting Aloysius and planning some great music to suit the style we were after. We had so many positive comments on the day and it really added to the great atmosphere of the day. Aloysius is an amazing guitarist and we loved how professional and unobtrusive he was on the day. We would definitely recommend Aloysius to others looking for a fantastic musician for their wedding."

I play hand-made Spanish flamenco and classical guitars. For amplification I use a Neumann KM184 mike with an AER dedicated acoustic amplifier, to produce a crystal clear and accurate sound.
Starting price for a wedding ceremony is $300. This typically consists of playing as guests arrive, for the bridal entrance, signing of the papers, and for half an hour afterwards. Any amount of time beyond this is charged at $100/hour. A travel surcharge may be added for areas outside of metropolitan Adelaide.
