LIVE MUSIC - Events & Weddings
(Contemporary Solo Guitar & Voice)
Sean Cleland presents a unique music selection that is perfect for your next event or wedding. He blends a classic sound with a modern delivery and aesthetic. Described as an "innovative singer-songwriter and prolific performer” by The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Sean's setlist features singer-songwriter, rock, pop, folk, blues, r&b, and soul genres - with a combination of classic songs alongside today's current radio hits. His act straddles the line between new and classic, refined and raw, solitary and cosmopolitan. Sean will always work with you to create a setlist and musical environment ideally suited for your particular event or wedding.
*Also of note to clients: Sean is able to sound like a full band by utilizing looping techniques during shows. He offers a fuller sounding experience than a single performer with merely an acoustic guitar. Within one song, he can sound like he's playing an acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, and drums (while singing). And his hourly rate is much less than a comparable 3 or 4 piece band
*Although Sean's weekly calendar may look full due to his weekly residency gigs, please don't hesitate to call even if you see that he already has a gig on the particular day of your event/wedding. His calendar is flexible and he will work to make your event a reality.

- “We had a tight schedule and were scrambling to get a musician that fit our event. Sean was accommodating and got back to us very quickly. The music was wonderful and complimented the atmosphere of the venue beautifully. When it came to the day of, I didn’t have to do anything. Everything went smoothly. Mainland visitors and local guests alike loved the music and wanted his business card. I highly recommend anyone needing a musician to contact Sean. I will definitely keep him in mind for any future events and will try to make his future live performances!” (Colette L.)
- "We hired Sean to sing at our wedding and reception. He was professional in handling the business side of things. And his voice and guitar skills are absolutely beautiful! Even my friends and family commented on how perfect the music was - not too loud, not too soft, great setlist, great voice. 100% recommend!!" (Kellie T.)
- "Sean was at Hawaiian Brians on March 3 and he puts on an entertaining show. Me and my wife had a nice time." (User: 'Sh2pid1' - Yelp Review)
- "Go with Sean - YOU CANNOT GO WRONG!! We had a beautiful beach wedding and he performed at both our wedding and reception. Sean has an amazing voice and plays the guitar beautifully. He's flexible and has a solution for everything! He learned songs for our wedding that were not on his set playlist. He also played songs off his iPod for us that we needed for the ceremony. Finally, Sean responds promptly which I appreciated as I was planning our wedding from Texas. THANK YOU, SEAN, FOR MAKING OUR DAY THAT MUCH MORE MEMORABLE!!!" (Lisa L.)
- "Sean is a great person and he knows music. I have enjoyed seeing him play with a variety of bands and look forward to hearing him again soon." (Aaron J.)
