Dylan did an awesome job for our event! His music was well received by the guests and fit the vibe we were looking for perfectly. We were very pleased with our overall experience and would definitely recommend.

I highly recommend Dylan for your next event.
Response from Dylan Galvin:
Thank you so much Stephen! You absolutely go all out for your parties, and that was one of the most fun I've ever been a part of! It was the first time I've had the joy of playing on a giant LED dance floor. I'm glad that you found me on Gigsalad and I'm glad that we know each other now!

What to Expect
'Friendly, wildly talented, charming and fun.'
Dylan is a consumate one man band. Using a loop pedal to create lush, full sounding layers, if you weren't looking you would swear there were four or five people playing music. He has everything you'd expect from an acoustic singer-songwriter but paired with what sounds like the abilities of an entire band.
He is extremely professional, very easy to work with, and he has over a decade of very intense gigging experience, with well over 1,200 live performances played. He performs modern hits, top 40's, adult contemporary, singer-songwriter, pop and classics. He covers John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Citizen Cope, Bill Withers, Phillip Phillips, 21 Pilots, Cage the Elephant, Paul Simon, George Michaels and too many more to list.
"Equal parts brilliant and stratospheric"

“Dylan was an incredible guitarist and singer... Our guests were thoroughly entertained. We greatly appreciated how engaged he was with the audience. There is no doubt we will have him again. ”

Hi! I'm Dylan Galvin. I'm an acoustic guitarist, singer and live performer based in Southern California. I play private parties, corporate events, weddings and even funerals. If you're looking for gorgeous, lush, live acoustic music, you're in the right place.
I've played over 1,200 shows across the US and I've been playing live for over 15 years. I'm a graduate from Berklee College of Music and have passionately pursued the strange and beautiful art of professionally performing music ever since.
My repertoire includes John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Christina Perry, Mumford and Sons, James Taylor, Van Morrison, The Beatles, Bill Withers and a ton more. I am very savvy with my loop pedal and this allows me to create very rich, haunting and ethereal soundscapes and very full sounding arrangements that sound like a guitar trio or a full acoustic orchestra.
I have my own sound system and require very little space to set up. I can play for 5 or 500 and will custom create a set list to fit your special day. I'm a 5-star rated musician on Gigmasters, award winning guitarist, songwriter and performer and I have years of experience working with people just like you to make sure the event is lovely, memorably and fun.
“Amazing musician. Took time to talk on the phone and make sure everything was the way we wanted it. Was willing to learn more if necessary. We ended up shortening the time we needed him for and he still drove all the way to Santa Barbara for it. Everyone raved about his talent. Thanks, Dylan! You made our day extra special!”
