1. Fred Lee IV – Guitar with Vocals

Solo guitar with vocals is a great option to explore for an event that needs live music. Fred Lee IV, frontman of Charlotte rock outfit Late Night Special, is a very talented and soulful acoustic guitarist and vocalist. Specializing in tunes from John Mayer, Bill Withers, Tom Petty and Avett Brothers, he covers a wide variety of well-known hits that will cater to any audience. Fred is a perfect solo guitarist option to consider because he adds his own distinct flavor to well-known songs, which creates an unforgettable performance.

 

2. J’Michael Peeples – Jazz/Blues/R&B Guitar

Jazz guitar is one of the less common musical styles in our local music scene, and talented jazz guitarists are even fewer and farther between. J’Michael Peeples is truly a local jazz guitar legend in the making and is the perfect option to consider for a private event because of his level of experience, professionalism, reputation and skill. 

 

3. LS Brown – Instrumental Pop Guitar

What if you don’t want vocals or jazz? The guitar is a wonderful instrument to employ for creating background music all on its own. LS Brown is a great option to consider because he specializes in recreating popular songs from the 1960s – 1980s across various genres of popular music instrumentally using just his guitar and a loop station.
