  • Stan saved the day by agreeing to play for my daughters reception dinner with only a 2- day notice! He knew exactly what our group needed and even played the bride and groom’s a first dance Elvis request without any advice notice. We highly recommend D Stan and would not hesitate to book him again in the future.

  • My husband and I hired Stan to play during our small wedding dinner, and he was absolutely fantastic. Our twelve guests haven’t stopped raving about what a great addition Stan was to the evening, and we couldn’t agree more. Communicating with Stan leading up to the wedding was simple and easy. During the dinner he was able to seamlessly read the room and adjust his song choices and playing accordingly. He cheerfully interacted with our guests when they requested certain songs and added a great dose of fun and elegance into our day. We’re forever convinced that the key to a great dinner party, no matter how big or small, is live music, and we would ask Stan to play for us again and again!

  • Stan was just perfect for our low key backyard wedding! We planned and replanned our weddding due to covid and picked our final date just a month before the final date. Stan was super easy to work with in a short time period. He learned 3 new songs for us in addition to his already extensive song list, had a great high quality and relaxing / fun tempo, and was a joy to listen to. Highly recommend!

  • Stan was awesome to work with and provided just the right mood that we wanted at our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was very responsive and showed up early on the wedding day. I definitely recommend him as he is very professional and understands that each wedding/event he plays at is very personal!

  • Stan was the perfect touch to our intimate 30 person wedding at a restaurant. He played acoustic guitar for our cocktail hour and throughout the entire dinner. He was so flexible with us when some of our timing was still a bit up in the air the week before due to venue changes. Would highly recommend Stan!

  • Stan was awesome. He was very responsive to our emails. He even learned a few songs for us that weren't in his playlist, and adjusted his performance based on the vibe of the reception. If you're looking for some some great acoustic music for your event, go with Stan.

  • Stan played guitar at our ceremony, and he was fantastic. He arrived on time, played exactly the songs we wanted, and everything went off without a hitch. We kinda dragged our feet with selecting songs for him, but he was kind, understanding, professional, and extremely quick to respond. He was a joy to work with, and any wedding ceremony would be better to have him included. Thank you, Stan!

  • I reached out to Stan two weeks before our wedding in a panic, as our previous ceremony and cocktail hour musician booked a more lucrative gig and terminated our contract at the last minute. I did a quick google search and found Stan on weddingwire and his style & description fit exactly what we were looking for. From the first day I reached out to Stan he was professional, responsive, and was able to accommodate our special date without hesitation. Furthermore, my wife and I had been planning our wedding for over a year and we had our hearts set on my wife walking down the aisle to "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. All I can say is WOW!! Stan pulled this off with such precision and his music was absolutely perfect for the processional, recessional, and cocktail hour. I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason and Stan was meant to play on our special day. Thank you Stan!!!

  • Stan just really set the tone for our entire wedding. He's such an amazing musician, it was absolutely magical to walk down the aisle with my father with Stan's beautiful guitar accompanying us. The transition between each room, from ceremony to the cocktail, felt so effortless with Stan. With the craziness of the day of our wedding, we didn't have to worry a thing with Stan, he was there way earlier to set himself up and was ready to go way in advance. Our ceremony started later than planned and the cocktail hour went long, but he was so gracious and nice to play through it all!! Our speaker we were going to use for the reception broke 3 days before the wedding, and Stan was there to save the day for us with his speaker! We absolute recommend hiring Stan Hamrick for any events big and small, he's just such a joy to be around, so easy to work with, the level of professionalism is excellent (as a bride planning a wedding from a far, he was very quick and responsive which helped ...
