Dwight Phetteplace: Award winning wedding guitarist and singer

Non Wedding Events***

FUNERALS AND MEMORIAL SERVICES: 

  I am always honored to be a part of these occasions. I can provide peaceful instrumental guitar background for arrival of guests or calling hours. I also often sing traditional spirituals ( like Amazing Grace) or perform a favorite song of the deceased as part of the service. Contact me, and we'll work to add a special touch to the remembrance.

PARTIES, RESTAURANTS, CORPORATE FUNCTIONS, ETC.

In a restaurant, corporate, or party setting, I try to provide a mix appropriate to the event. The song list below is a good representation of the material I cover.  I typically include a few guitar instrumentals, and, depending on the venue, I might mix in some of my originals, ranging from story songs to humorous songs, many with a New England flavor.

*Thirty years as a high school teacher made me comfortable and adaptable on stage.

*I provide my own professional sound system  and can adapt to nearly any space.

*I'll include a wireless mic that can be used for announcements, awards, toasts, etc.

 

 Just show me where to set up and let me handle it from there...one less thing for you to manage.

 

*This is a typical list I work from, in no particular order. Your guests will have a variety of tastes, so I try to mix it up, and watch the folks in front of me. It will give you an idea of the type of music I would provide during your event.

*It is also important to understand the delicate balance between engaging just enough with folks while remaining unobtrusive.
