The sounds of classical guitar, the perfect music for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, or brunch – solo acoustic guitar by George Sawyn. His instrument is the traditional classical guitar, gently amplified to cover a room with an elegant musical atmosphere, without interfering with conversation.
Sawyn’s musical repertoire covers a wide spectrum including many original works, diverse and yet familiar. He draws from the classical composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Dvorak; the “Standards” as sung by Frank Sinatra, Nat Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and Tony Bennett; and popular songs of the 60s, 70s, and 80s by such stars as Nora Jones, The Beatles, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, and George Benson. In addition, special requests from you or your guests are welcome.
DesignWise Studios Fine Art Photography and Videography features the work of George Sawyn in a forthcoming full-length production on the wedding of Hongling and Kyle at Bjorklunden this summer. Here’s a short clip from the film that includes Sawyn’s “Night of the White Rainbow,” an original.
The performer is a 38-year veteran of the Chicago music scene, guitarist George Sawyn. Over the years, George has worked with many of Chicago’s finest musicians and bands, playing many styles of music including rock, disco, country, jazz, and classical, and has acquired a wealth of musical repertoire and experience. But, his specialty is the solo acoustic guitar …soft, gentle, unobtrusive.
Since relocating to Door County, Wisconsin in 2010, George has entertained thousands of Door County residents and vacationers at local venues such as The Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club, Thorpe House Inn in Fish Creek, Pasta Vino in Ellison Bay and Al Johnson’s in Sister Bay. He provides ceremony and dinner music for dozens of weddings and other private events each year.

Bio: Husband and wife Josh and Gwen Gregory came from very different musical backgrounds. Gwen is a classically trained flutist who has played for both the UW Eau Claire orchestra and Edgewood College chamber orchestra. Josh is a rock, blues, and jazz pianist who has played in local bands Little Marsh Overflow and The Off Season and who has also sat in regularly with local favorites The Nicks and The Johnson Project. In 2012, after nearly 10 years together but having never played music with each other, Josh needed to put an act together on roughly 6 hours’ notice for the set break during the Fishstock Concert Series in Fish Creek, WI. His usual musical partner had come down ill. Not wanting to cancel the gig, Gwen offered to play with him and they settled on a genre of music that they both have a love for, Celtic music. They both had a lot of fun playing music together that night and deemed that impromptu performance a success. Since then they have played throughout Door County at weddings, restaurants, special retail events, and community events such as Sturgeon Bay’s Fine Art Fair. The more they play together, the larger their repertoire has expanded from Celtic music to include pop and jazz standards with artists ranging from The Beatles and Ray Charles to John Denver and the Muppets.
Always looking for more opportunities to play music together, they are available for hire at your next event!

“You can’t box God up in religion. You can’t box Jesus up in Christianity. You can’t box church up in a building. You can’t box faith up in a set of beliefs. You can’t box grace up in conditions. The Kingdom of God isn’t boxed up in our churches. Imagine church without pulpits or pews, creeds or confessionals-no membership, plate-passing, pledges, vestments, heavenly choirs, or altar calls. Without buildings to maintain or staff to sustain, the church no longer is seen as a private club or guilt-trip haven to heaven. Instead, its focus is on caring and sharing, living here-and-now, not in the hereafter. Rather than part of our worldly empires, the church has become their antithesis. From guts to glory, the church begets reform.” – My Name Is Heretic: Reforming the Church, from Guts to Glory (Paperback – November 21, 2015 by Bruce H. Joffe)
