Whether you are planning a funeral, memorial service or celebration of life, live music can bring love and connection to your final farewell~

​My specialty is background ambience, playing old and new favorites while your guests gather and wait for the service or refreshments.
To customize the musical background for your most heartful moments, please find my song request list
~modern and classic music only, no religious songs or hymns~

Picking the music for the funeral might be just one small part of your post-death tasks and challenges. I can help make all of it easier. My specialty is creating a sound environment that feels warm and healing. I use my guitar and my voice and I tuck myself into a comfortable corner and I give everyone's ears and minds a place to rest when it's just too overwhelming.
At the same time I play music at a low decibel level which allows everyone to talk comfortably and hear each other, during your all important gathering.
(please note, I am not intended for the service itself I play while everyone gathers prior to the service or immediately afterwards during the food and beverage gathering. I do not play hymns or religious music, I play modern songs of love and remembering which I help you select from my songlist).
