Live Guitar new england

David William Ross, guitarist

Dedicated to providing live music for events, functions, and weddings as well as restaurants, clubs, and concert halls.

The guitar has become integral to our experience of music, be it classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk, country, or virtually any other genre. The guitar has left it's mark in every corner of music and, in many cases, it has completely reinvented or defined an entire genre . Whether a trio with flute and violin or a combo with drums and bass, live music will bring a feeling of spontaneity and liveliness to any event. It is the essential final touch in creating a moving and unique atmosphere that speaks to the human spirit itself.

The music was beautiful and unassuming. I imagined that the notes swirled around, in and out of everyone, even though they might not have been conscious of it. And in that swirling thread, a musical room was created that connected us all. That is magic to me. My emotional recollection of that time will forever have your sound in it. Your music, your demeanor, your presence couldn’t have been better. Thank you, Joe
