My Mission

I'm Here As Your Biggest Fan.

California born and raised, I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area with a passion to create the most amazing soundtrack to the most important events in your life. From the age of 14 I knew that I wanted to pursue music but it wasn't until I graduated with a Masters in Classical Guitar Performance that I realized how much I loved playing for peoples weddings and events.

There is a certain excitement in the air playing music for people. It has a power to elevate an event to a more personal level. It makes guests dance, sing, or cry but in the end it is really about creating an environment where guests can connect to each other. I want your guests to gasp at how amazing your wedding is and make is the centerpiece of their conversation.

All About: Slow Mornings, Photography, Minimalism,Technology, Local Food, Travel, Fine Dining, Beaches, Exercise

Every event has special meaning to me. It is where I connect to people the best. Being to find out that the last song that I played was the song they had their first kiss or was the song that they had their first dance. Each event is a chance to create new memories and relive the old ones.

the real

Chris J Nicklin

Behind all the social media, work, and great suits I am actually a pretty low key person, but you won't know that when I am at your wedding. On my days off I usually play some music, enjoy scenery, and spend time with loved ones.

Some fun facts about me. I like to call myself a golden kiwi bcause I am a dual citizen to New Zealand and the U.S but I was born in the golden state of CAlifornia. I'm the biggest foodie in the world and attempting to create the perfect Gin Fizz Ramos (long way to go). My personality tests are INTJ  and enneagram 4w3. Current obsessions include ferrets, color theory, holistic health, and bread making.

If you  are planning an event, I'd to party with you and make it one for the ages.
