 * - A song that makes use of a looping pedal. I record the first part of the song on to a recording pedal with my feet and bring extra layers of guitar in on top to play the vocal melody or any other parts of the song. This allows me to fill out my performance and come closer to the sound of a band which can bring extra energy.

Amazing day! Couldn't have asked for better

5 stars - Ryan Gene are Highly Recommended
booked Ryan Gene for their Wedding in Derbyshire October 2021

“Ryan was brilliant, really professional and the sound went amazingly well with how we'd imagined our day to go. He was really self sufficient too - the first time I spoke to him (not on purpose of course) he was leaving and I was completely satisfied with his performance!”

Absolutely wonderful! Made it so special x

booked Ryan Gene for their Wedding in Staffordshire July 2021

5 stars - Ryan Gene are Highly Recommended
booked Ryan Gene for their Wedding in Angus

“Ryan is truly a gem! Although already equipped with an eclectic repertoire, he agreed to learn a couple of our favourite songs from the 80s as well as a new 2019 Trinidad soccer song. He played it so beautifully, slowed it down to a lovely speed and the melodies were magical. I love the fact that he was able to easily move to follow the guests as they filtered their way from the Long room to the lounge/ sitting area as well as outdoor to the courtyard - one of the many other perks of acoustic guitar performances! Very professional and was happy to communicate with him weeks ahead of the wedding so that he understood the vision and therefore he was able to execute flawlessly. Ryan, thank you ever so much for coming up to Scotland and the effort in learning the songs as it assisted in making our wedding day soooo much more special! Craig & Dione Marshall”
