About Nico - Famous guitarist for hire

Nico is a guitarist, violinist, violist, electric bass player and vocalist. He has extensive live orchestral and chamber music experience having performed all over the world, from France to Mexico, to La Jolla to Beijing. His touring and world experience means he has the skills necessary to perform with the most highly trained and accomplished musicians anywhere and has graced the stage to adoring audiences with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony and Vienna State Opera. But Nico is also very well known outside these top circles and well respected for his versatility. One day he can be playing in a full orchestral arrangement, and the next, with the rock band Disturbed or even Plácido Domingo.

It would be interesting to sit in a room with Nico, with a table covered with musical instruments, and watch him produce music from each of those instruments. This is his talent, his passion and born from his strong natural curiosity. When we were kids, some of us when playing with a toy would want to take it apart and put it back together, Nico would probably see if there was some way of getting sounds out of it.

OMG is proud to offer this very special, musically accomplished and fantastically multi-talented performer for your private events weddings and special occasions.

Please Provide Shade/Umbrella

  • We require a shade/umbrella for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment. This is due to the extreme sensitivity of musical instruments to changes in temperature and exposure to sunlight and humidity. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments.

  • We require a covered/dry location for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment in case of rain. Exposure to water or humidity is damaging to our musical instruments and audio equipment. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments.

The viola is larger than a violin, the viola has a lower and deeper sound. Sometimes it is easier for a viola player to get a spot in an orchestra because there are less Viola players than violin players. Also the viola and violin string orders are different.

Some of the most famous violin players today are Itzhak Perlman, Mark O’Connor, Jascha Heifetz, Stephane Grappelli and Hilary Hahn.

Booking a professional live violin player for your wedding day can give your event a special elegant touch and entertain your guests with impressive music. Live string entertainment is quite popular with weddings today and both modern and classical songs can be played. A violin player can also accompany a duo, trio or quartet. Live music can be played while your guests enter, during the bridal procession or entrance, and while your guests mingle at the cocktail hour.

It starts with deciding what kind of professional musician(s) you would like to hire. Do you want a solo musician like maybe a violin player? Or maybe a cellist or harpist? Would you like a duo, a violin player and cello player? Or maybe even a trio or quartet. Sometimes if you get a duo or trio, you can let one player play where the guest center in the other players play where your guests gather.

Then you will want a reputable company with a track record for providing consistent high-quality entertainment without fail. This eliminates the risk of someone not showing up.

On our OMG website, all the different artists are sorted so you can take a quick look, watch a few videos, then ask us if they are available on your date. Once you decide, a contract is signed, 25% deposit is paid and you are all set. Booking the actual artist or artists with us can take as little as 5 or 10 minutes.
