Hi, I'm classical guitarist Richard DeVinck...welcome to my website.
If you are looking for a highly experienced, competent solo guitarist for your wedding or other special events, look no further...you have just found him! My repertoire covers classical, Latin, contemporary, rock, jazz, and more. I have been performing ambient music for weddings, corporate dinners, and private parties on the Monterey Peninsula for the past 30 years. I perform at all of the major venues on the California Central Coast; from Carmel, Monterey, Big Sur, Santa Cruz, to Salinas. Proof of liability insurance is available upon request. The following is a recent testimonial from two of my clients:
"Richard made our wedding day so special and beautiful. He discussed with us prior to the wedding what we wanted and played all of the songs we requested. I walked down the aisle to "In My Life" by The Beatles. It was more beautiful than the original version. He did so many songs that were meaningful to my husband and me. We truly appreciate Richard's work. He even brought an amp down to our beach wedding so that we could all enjoy it. We did not even have a rehearsal and we played it by ear. That was no problem for Richard because he knew exactly when to play. I would recommend Richard to everyone. Whether it is a small event or large he will make your event very special, just like he did for our wedding. We were thrilled with his playing." - Jamie & Troy -
Listen to the audio samples on these pages to get an idea of what you can expect to hear at my performances. All of the samples are of me playing solo guitar (no overdubs - even the percussion sounds are me playing percussion in real-time while I play the music). Keep in mind that these samples are a very small part of my repertoire. A more extensive playlist can be viewed by clicking either .pdf or .doc formats. I hope you enjoy my music and I hope to hear from you soon and perform for your event. Cheers!
