Andrew Gabriel Guitar & Vocals


Hi I'm Andrew Gabriel and I want to play music for your wedding!

Ever since I can remember I have been in love with music and have had a desire to perform in front of people. From my start on trumpet in elementary school to studying guitar in college music has been the one constant. Over the past 15 years I turned this love of music into a business; playing special events and weddings. 

Over the recent years there has been a lot of positive change in my life including getting married and having two children. Being surrounded by so much love has helped me understand even more the importance of your wedding day and only increased my desire to make it extra special for others.

The Wedding Industry

Before I played guitar as my main instrument, I was a piano student. My start performing professionally was as a teenager playing the occasional wedding with my keyboard! After focusing on guitar and singing I played out as much as possible at restaurants and bars to sharpen my craft. With a new confidence I started advertising myself as a performer for weddings and I haven't looked back since.

I love playing weddings because there is nothing like the thrill of playing for one of the most important days in someone's life. It's truly special to collaborate with a couple on their favorite songs and making them into our own version tailored for their moment.

The Wedding Memories

One of my favorite memories is traveling to Vermont to play a post wedding bonfire! It was a perfect night fulfilling some requests by the fire under the stars. Also, this was a great excuse to take my first visit to Vermont with my wife and dog which I will always remember. 



One of the things I specialize in is adapting your favorite song into my style. No matter the request I can play it as an instrumental on guitar for your ceremony or as a ballad for your first dance.

Also, while playing your reception I can create the perfect background ambience. I'm not trying to play over your guests, just at the perfect level where they can still talk and listen if they want to.


What Do You Offer?

Live music performance that includes instrumental guitar or guitar with vocals. I can cover a broad range of styles and genres to fit your wedding vision.

How Are You Different?

I really care about your wedding and strive to improve the atmosphere with a thoughtful performance and high-quality sound.

Why Do Couples Book With You?

A lot of my bookings come through referrals and couples who have seen my performances at other weddings and events. I am easy to work with, and I will meet face-to-face, talk on the phone, or text with you to work out every detail of my part of your wedding. 

How Do I Know What Songs You Might Play?

I have a complete list of songs in my songbook located here:

The songbook also includes suggestions for different parts of your wedding day like your ceremony, first dance or parent dances.

I Don’t See The Song I Want, Can you Learn It?

Yes! Almost all of my events require me to learn at least one song that is special to a couple. I’m happy to accommodate this to make your day perfect.

My Venue Is Asking About Insurance, Can You Provide That?

Yes! I have full liability insurance and I can provide a Certificate Of Insurance with the name of your venue and date upon request.

Personal Hobbies

My personal hobbies include playing and collecting guitars (no surprise there), film photography, looking at vintage cars I can't afford, occasional video games, Mets baseball, movies & cinema and reading.

BOLI Love!

Andrew played the music for our wedding ceremony (both entrance and exit as well as a song during the ceremony). It was PERFECT! We did not use conventional pieces, so he learned our music - and we couldn’t have been happier. We got compliments from all of our guests, and our band (who was setting up nearby) asked about Andrew because they were so impressed. He’s personable and easy to work with. You won’t regret it.

Andrew has a beautiful voice and made our wedding ceremony so special. We selected the songs we wanted him to play and sing, and everyone loved his performance. I would book him for any occasion!

My now husband discovered Andrew through online searches and immediately hearing his voice, we decided we had to have him for our backyard ceremony. Not only was Andrew professional, but he literally stole the show! He worked with me from the beginning, was willing to learn new songs and even helped surprise my husband during the ceremony with a bonus wedding song. I couldn't have pictured my day without Andrew at this point, not only would I recommend him to anyone, I'm trying to find reasons to hire him again!

Andrew Gabriel added the perfect touch to our wedding day! We hired him to play for our ceremony and our cocktail hour and we are so happy that we did! We received so many compliments on him. He is so extremely talented and a true professional. Having him there on our wedding day really made it special and I recommend him to anybody who is looking for live music for their special events!

Lauren D.

Andrew performed for my ceremony as well as my cocktail hour… he was absolutely amazing. Had the perfect song choices which made everything super simple. He’s very knowledgeable also and easy to communicate with!! Any question I had, he was quick to respond, even jumping right on a phone call!! I’ve had so many compliments on how great he was. I absolutely recommend him and any future events I will definitely be calling him!

We hired Andrew for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Not only is he incredibly talented (backed by all the wonderful comments from our guests), but he is prompt, courteous, and professional. He is also responsive, which made planning a cinch. Could not ask for more and would recommend!

Alyssa O.

Andrew played during our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were both extra special because of him. He added songs we requested that weren't on his song list and was just so great to work with. Highly recommend!

Andrew Gabriel is so talented and added that creative and warm touch to our wedding. He was so easy to communicate with from meeting, booking, and going over specific wedding details. He was super self sufficient with equipment and whatever he needed day-of. Our guests loved the ceremony music and cocktail hour. I’d book him for any event in the future!

Jamie Z.

WOW...we hired Andrew to play at our wedding during our wait period before our ceremony, during our ceremony, and at our cocktail hour. He was absolutely mesmerizing! His voice and guitar playing are outstanding and will melt your heart. Our guests raved about him during our wedding and we are still receiving compliments on how spectacular he was! We highly recommend Andrew for whatever event you are having!

Linda A.

Andrew Gabriel was incredible! He was playing when the first guests started arriving and he set up the mic system that my husband and I used for our vows. I picked out three songs, two without singing and one with, and he nailed all 3! Having a live musician for our ceremony made such a difference, I'm so glad we went with him! He was great to work with!
