About Booking Guitarists
Whatever style of music, you will be able to find a guitarist that suits your musical needs and provides your event with a classic sound at Gig Salad. From electric to acoustic to classical, guitarists can play solo or with a band and blend in with any type of event.
There are a few things you should consider when hiring a guitarist. First, listen to audio and watch video samples. You want to be sure you are satisfied with the sound and look of the performer before you book him/her. Next, get references and read reviews. Talk to people in the area who have seen the performer and/or have booked them in the past. Feedback is the best way to ensure you are going to be satisfied with your choice. If you are looking for a guitarist for your band, check to see if they can adapt to different kinds of music and if they play well with unfamiliar bands. Last, always get a contract. Read the contract carefully and work out any details in regards to deposit requirements, length of performance, scheduled breaks, attire, travel, and lodging. Watch for specifications made by the performer and be sure you can meet them.
