Bob Drury - Classical / Spanish Guitarist | Kent, South East(no reviews)
Based In: Kent, South East
We are all aware of the magical power of music to influence our moods and emotions. As your special day unfolds and carefully laid plans become a reality, music can play a vital role in creating and maintaining the perfect atmosphere for your guests and yourselves.
>From those expectant (and often tense!) minutes whilst everyone awaits the arrival of the Bride through to the 'buzz' and excitement surrounding your wedding meal, varied music from the guitar can capture the mood and create a unique and memorable musical ambience.
Guitar soloist Bob Drury draws on his experience of many mu ... sical styles to present you with a range of options to find the perfect music for each stage of your wedding day.
A great advantage of the guitar is it's portability. Bob is happy to take his guitar to wherever you choose to get married and has played in castles, stately homes, churches, marquees, ancient barns, on-board ships and in private homes and gardens both large and small.
For most events, and particularly outside, the guitar will need to be amplified. Bob uses the very latest Bose professional sound system for this which is designed to spread the sound evenly giving a wonderfully clear tone whilst not being too loud. For situations where there is no mains power, Bob has a special battery powered sound system.
