Guitarist Don Sanni performs a wide range of solo, instrumental guitar music especially suited to create an intimate, relaxed atmosphere for wedding ceremonies, receptions, restaurants, parties, and concert settings. Mr. Sanni’s repertoire starts with the renaissance and baroque lute music of Purcell and Bach, which he beautifully performs on a steel string guitar. If you are planning a renaissance wedding or party, Don can create this unique atmosphere, he even has period garb. Also in his repertoire are the classical styles of Sor and Guiliani. This music is what most people think of as Concorde Classical Guitar, with a lot of it having a romantic, Spanish flavor. It’s fun and light and it works well as background music for receptions and the like. Don also performs guitar arrangements of pop tunes by artists such as the Beatles, Eric Clapton, and Steely Dan, among others. This material always goes over very well, and is a great contrast to the earlier music. One unique style of guitar that Don performs is Celtic music. This is ancient music from the British Isles, which was made popular through the show Riverdance and the movies Braveheart and Titanic. This music sounds fantastic on the guitar, and is definitely not something you hear everyday. If your having a special event why not special music? If a lighter mood is needed Don can also play some pickin’ and grinnin’ guitar, such as blues, ragtime, or a T.V. theme or two, as well as Christmas music for holiday parties. If your not sure on how to go about planning your wedding music, Don can guide you through it, or give musical suggestions. To sum it up simply, the music is smooth and relaxing. If this sounds good to you then listen to the audio clips, since the music will be the final, deciding factor.
Don’s instrumental CD – New England Soundscapes is also available. It’s a collection of 14 originals blending pop, classical, and Celtic music. More info and audio clips are available on his website.
