Jon Hart (right) is a multi award-winning (national and double regional) fingerstyle guitarist, singer, beatboxer and looper. Imagine the sound of a live acoustic duo/trio played solo. Jon is an acoustic wedding guitarist and wedding singer that incorporates vocal harmony, fingerstyle guitar and the occasional beatboxing to add a unique twist to those classic covers from all eras, from The Beatles to Ed Sheeran. With a high energy solo performance and experience that spans over a decade, he leaves audiences craving more. By using specialist equipment (no backing tracks), Jon thickens the sound by using a vocal harmony pedal and looping pedal for beatboxing. This gives the impression that a band is playing. Jon’s setup is small and can fit into all venues, but can still create a sound that is powerful or intimate.
