Sam Pointer Music  
Home Schedule Bio Acts Weddings Pictures Lessons




Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!  Sam will work with you to develop just the atmosphere you are looking for on your special day!  He brings together top-notch playing and singing, a huge repertoire, and a knack for reading the mood of the crowd and and choosing just the right song for the moment. Always professional, entertaining, and easy to work with, Sam Pointer will bring you complements from your guests. 

Sam can play: 

- background instrumental music as guests are getting seated,
- your chosen instrumental or vocal music during the wedding ceremony  (from classical favorites like "Pachelbel's Canon in D" or "Ode to Joy" to modern songs like "Marry Me", "You Are the Best Thing", or "How Sweet it Is")
- background music (James Taylor, Van Morrison, jazz,..) during a dinner reception,
- then rock out (Beatles, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty…) to fill the dance floor afterwards - including of course your first dance requests!
- he can even switch to DJ'ing recorded music or playing your provided playlist through his powerful sound system if you want to move to recorded dance music during the reception.

In addition to his standard guitar, he can also bring mandolin, ukulele, or banjo if any of those provide the atmosphere you're looking for. On certain songs, he uses state-of-the-art looping technology to play rhythm and lead guitar, bass lines, and percussion all at once. He plays many weddings solo, but can bring a duo, trio, or larger band if you're looking for a bigger sound. And of course, he can let you use the microphone for announcements/toasts, and can play recorded music during any breaks.

Some customer testimonials:

“Sam MADE our wedding! From the serious moments of the ceremony to reading the crowd, playing music that created the party atmosphere we could only have hoped for (including letting one of our friends accompany him in a few songs), Sam delivered and then some. He even went above and beyond by providing us recordings of the "toasts"! Highly highly recommend him for any event...he's depth and breadth is extremely impressive. He truly is that awesome."

"Sam is crazy talented and a true professional! He played our wedding ceremony and reception for about 50 people. His quote was thorough so we knew exactly what to expect and he could not have been more accommodating. We even had an alternate song choice of "I love a rainy night" that Sam learned for the recessional if it was raining...which it was. There was an eruption of laughter when Sam started playing it that started the reception out on such a great tone...and Sam kept the great vibes going throughout. He has such a wide repertoire and interacts so well with the audience; he took requests a large part of the evening. He made our wedding truly special."

"Sam was amazing! He responded to our request immediately and got back to us quickly with a quote for our wedding. He not only sang and played at our reception but played instrumental acoustic guitar for our beach wedding ceremony as well. He learned songs that we requested and played/sang them beautifully. However, I must mention that there are not too many songs that he doesn't already know! He was extremely professional and all of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed listening to him. I would highly recommend him for your event! He was great to work with :)"

"Sam did an excellent job for us and was prompt, courteous, and professional. He was also very flexible as we had to relocate him several times because of the weather; something he took in stride without complaint or hesitation. Our only music request was for Pachelbel's Cannon during the bridal procession and Sam played a beautiful rendition of this. He took requests from the guests during the reception and I heard excellent comments from this as well. Overall, our expectations were fulfilled and I would recommend Sam Pointer highly. I would hire him in the future without hesitation."

"We hired Sam Pointer to play instrumental selections on acoustic guitar at my daughter's wedding.  She chose classic rock songs for her ceremony, many of which, Sam already knew.  He was willing to learn several new songs at her request...all the pieces were played beautifully.  Sam is an absolute professional. He returns calls/emails promptly, was clear on what he could/couldn't do, showed up on time and prepared. The evening of our wedding was rainy and our ceremony was outdoors, so we had to make some changes to our original plan, but Sam rolled with these.  I don't think you can go wrong with this guy! He's just a very talented musician and we highly recommend!"

"I had another musician cancel on me a week before the wedding. I emailed sam and he got in touch with me within 30 minutes! He was a major stress relief for me. He is an excellent guitarist and singer. He learned a couple songs for me and played them perfectly. He did classical pieces for my ceremony and it sounded great! During the reception he did a wonderful job keeping people entertained and dancing! I would definitely recommend him!"

"Sam was just great! He arrived early and was all set by the time we arrived... he played exactly the kind of music we were looking for, and was so accommodating to let us use his mike and to pause for the blessing, toasts, etc. He even let me know when the restaurant announced an upcoming remodel so I could doublecheck any potential conflicts! He got right back to me with recordings of the toasts as well. I would highly recommend him!"

"We decided to hire Sam Pointer to perform at our wedding ceremony following a recommendation that was given to us.  Being that I'm a huge music fan, the music was one of the most important aspects of the wedding for me.  After taking a good bit of time to make our song selections, Sam informed us that while he knew the majority of the songs, there were a few he did not yet have in his repertoire.  It was at this point that he went above and beyond to accommodate us, offering to learn the few extra selections! I was truly blown away by Sam's professionalism, his willingness to go the extra mile and of course, his overall talent! We received several compliments following the ceremony from our guests about how lovely the acoustic instrumentals provided were. I would choose Sam again in a heartbeat and can't say enough good things!"

"Sam was AWESOME at our wedding and reception. I cannot recommend him enough. He worked with me before hand to talk through all of my questions, concerns, music choices, etc. and helped me create just what I wanted in terms of music. His performance was outstanding and, additionally, his sound system was great for playing other music too! Loud and clear. You get the best of both worlds with Sam. He's great at reading the crowd and knowing what to play."

"If you are looking for an amazingly talented guitarist to perform at your wedding, Sam is your guy. He is so professional to work with and his talent is truly a gift. My ceremony would not have been the same without Sam. My guests are still raving about Sam's talent!  Sam has a very impressive repertoire and already knew how to play all of the songs I wanted.  As a bride, there were many things that I stressed over, but my ceremony music wasn't one of them. Sam went the extra mile to help me make my music selections and responded promptly to all emails. He was extremely professional, and I highly recommend Sam! I would hire him again in a heartbeat. "
