Over the years, I have provided music for all sort of events including wine tastings, weddings, fund-raisers, real estate openings, etc. as both a soloist and in larger ensembles. I'd be more than happy to discuss your event with you and the type of ambience you're trying to achieve.
Every year, I provide music at many weddings, and in the process have accumulated invaluable experience in playing these special events. Hopefully, this experience can make your search for wedding music both enjoyable and stress-free.
For weddings, I have provided music for both traditional or non-traditional ceremonies. I have worked with couples who want a traditional sound, although many want something that will reflect the wedding in a more personal way. I can offer my assistance in creating what will be just right for your wedding! Beyond ceremony music, often times I will play for the pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, and/or reception.
If you are interested in having live music at your wedding and would like to talk more in detail about your wedding, please feel free to contact me.
I'm more than happy to answer any questions that you may have via email or phone. You can reach me at my CONTACT page, and I'll get back to you promptly.

"Jason Okamoto is amazing. His music is beautiful, delightful, passionate and genuinely inspired. His ability to create a sonic landscape for any event and location is magical. He is a lovely human being whose musical talent is just a small part of his success. In working with Jason, I have discovered that he can not only play at my events but also pull together an entire group of inspired musicians to play my larger live events. Having Jason perform at any event is a recipe for delightful success. I am so honored to know Jason Okamoto."
