“Absolutely made the drinks reception at our wedding”

booked DZ Guitar for their Wedding in Hertfordshire on 17th August 2019

DZ Guitar is an absolutely brilliant guitarist, playing during both our wedding ceremony and at our drinks reception. His playing was a real highlight of the day - so many people came up and commented on his amazing playing and asked where we found him! He even played a special song which got everyone dancing during the drinks reception and really added to the atmosphere. Great communication leading up to the day as well. Couldn't recommend more!

Genuinely such a nice person with a professional attitude. Very prompt in responding to messages and very adaptable, even with last minute changes! Everyone has such good things to say!

“Excellent in every respect and greatly enjoyed by the guests”

booked DZ Guitar for their Wedding in Suffolk on 16th July 2016

DZ Guitar played at our daughter’s church wedding service and at the wedding reception and his performances were excellent in every respect and greatly enjoyed by the guests. He was polite, helpful, reliable and well presented as well as being a very talented guitarist with a wide ranging and varied repertoire. He was particularly cooperative in playing one piece specially prepared, accompanying the choir, as the bride and groom processed out at the end of the service. We would not hesitate to engage DZ Guitar in the future and thoroughly recommend him.

“It was brilliant!”

It was brilliant. There were a lot of comments from guest about how good he was as a musician and he was great at all the other admin stuff and turning up etc too. Highly recommend him. Best, Sarah West

The versatility of the classical guitar, both in its percussive capacity and as an amplified instrument, was brilliantly demonstrated by DZ Guitar. This was powerfully revealed in his own amplified compositions, Crystal and Broken Rhapsody.

His concert began with traditional guitar music - famous pieces from Albeniz and Bach and progressed through more specialised Jobim's Happiness to Brouwer and Domeniconi. It was when he changed to his percussion guitar that the real Declan became apparent. Declan has specialised in percussive guitar by which he means, in simple terms, the banging on the instrument as well as the plucking and stroking. He told us that people could not believe he did not wear some sort of ring on his finger - and demonstrated how he hit the guitar on the joint of the finger where there is little or no flesh. To do this accurately and at considerable speed takes some talent when you think about it. All became clear when Declan played Eric Roche's two percussive pieces. Time was running out and we had to choose between the two works Declan himself had written. We chose his Broken Rhapsody. It's not surprising it went viral on YouTube. It is well worth seeking out. Perhaps more than anything it was Declan's charm in the way he spoke about his fascinating music that made his first ever Fringe concert such a joy for his audience.
