Thank you so much for being a huge part of our wedding day. I’m so glad that we were able to make this happen. You are both such an amazing team, it’s inspirational. We loved meeting you in NY and instantly knew that we had made the right choice for music. There is truly no one like you on the market.
— Allie & Nick
How good can your catered food be and let’s face it, champagne is champagne and beer is beer. Want to throw a memorable gathering with 100 of your closest friends? Hire Winship for your backyard BBQ, your wedding cocktails, or your Christmas party.

The music is artistic and cool, yet fun and enjoyable. The booking process is easy and the experience is professional and no hassle. We heard familiar upbeat songs, classic easy going songs, and some originals which upped the cool factor. Your party plans are moving in the right direction when you choose this artist to perform for you and your friends.

Winship is terrific. What a wonderful musical talent with a wide range covering a lot of musical themes. We saw him play in Annapolis and were very excited to hear that he is going to be in our Bay Area! If you want to hear a very talented singer and guitar player, this is the guy to go see!
— Bill L.
I have seen Winship perform several times and he never disappoints. He is very a very talented musician and great performer. I make every effort to see him play whenever I have the opportunity. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for good talent.
— Debra F.
Nothing but positive vibes! Winship was able to create a night of fun, and memories that we will talk about for years to come.
— James B.
Winship performed at our venue in front of 150 paying guests as the evening’s headliner and knocked it out of the park. He switched seamlessly between mellow ballads and fun takes on recent hits. And as a surprise encore, he hopped on the house piano and accompanied himself on a few songs. Class act.
— Kevin L.
Booking Winship for my event was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He is such an amazing musician and had my family and I captivated for hours. He learned every song I asked him to for the event and from the moment he started playing, he made fans out of all of us. He and his wife were so friendly and it was great to share this special moment with them. They were so fun to hang out with, and just great, down to earth people. I would highly recommend you book Winship for your next event. I promise you won’t regret the decision. Winship is best!!!!
— Jeff F.
Winship was such an awesome addition to our event! Easy to communicate with, very accommodating, and great musicianship. Would definitely hire again.
— Hannah W.
Our experience at Winship was excellent - great communication leading up to the event, and a great performance at the event. He played and sang wonderfully, and was great with the crowd. We would highly recommend him.
— Kristen K.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of working a catered party for a graduate of the Naval Academy. A beautiful sunny day filled with the ambiance of endless good food, many happy faces and just the right touch of a very gifted musician to compliment the day. After the party I met Winship and his beautiful wife, Lacey. Together they truly make an awesome team and are living their passion. Indeed, a celebration of life!
— Shari M.
Thank you for a wonderful night of piano and acoustic music! You offered the perfect combination of ambiance and entertainment for our guest. The variety in your music was outstanding. Thank you for making this a memorable night!
— Michelle K.
Winship is awesome! Everyone at our rehearsal dinner loved his sound and songs! Winship really added a great vibe at our event! Lacey was wonderful to work with when booking and planning his appearance at our event! Lacey really made the booking and planning process smooth and easy! Lacey came with Winship to set up and meet with us beforehand. They were setup early and ready to begin when the event started. I would highly recommend Winship to others!
— Melissa R.
Winship was the musical entertainment at an event I attended last spring. He was amazing!! The music was great and everyone LOVED him. The music was so well received, that he was asked to stay for 2 more hours. Winship is a must have at your next party for an acoustic sound.
— Leslie S.
We hired Winship to play at the after-party of a large charity golf tournament. The music was supposed to be outside, but the weather was a disaster. The crowd was soaked and cold, but Winship rolled with the change from outdoor to indoors and put on a great acoustic show that really changed the mood and made for a great end to an otherwise dismal day. Winship has a great attitude and masterfully plays a wide variety of music. We will certainly have him back for future events.
— Rick F.
We held a private party with friends in our wooded backyard. Winship swooned our crowd with his music and comfortable presence. The guests had fun together but frequently stopped their activity /conversation and said, “that singer is terrific”. What a genuine pleasure to have Winship had his wife, Lacey, at our party. We will have you back to Hanover!
— Emily S.
One word, AMAZING! Winship played a set at our engagement party and we absolutely loved it! I requested a special song and he took the time to learn it! My fiancée was so surprised! We were all floored by his voice! I highly recommend Winship!
— Brett R.
Winship is super entertaining, extremely talented and down to earth. I hired Winship to play at my home for my husband’s birthday party and every single guest loved him. He was also super accommodating and easy to work with. The party was a huge hit and all thanks to Winship. Also, Thanks to Lacey for being easy to get a hold of and responsive along with just being super nice. Thank you!
— Heather A.
Let me first say that Winship and his manager/wife Lacey did an amazing job coordinating with us throughout the planning process and an even better one at the event. We hired Winship to do a couple things singing guitarist as the first hour during the cocktail reception, singing piano during the dinner and then DJ for the remainder. He did an absolutely flawless performance for all three and was very perceptive during the event to adapt to the volume of the room. Winship and Lacey were the perfect mix of professional and creative that we were looking for. We will definitely consider them for future events and would recommend them to future clients.
— Kevin P. & Bryan Allen Events
We loved it! Thank you so much.
— Ally R.
Well receive by a film industry audience that ranged from LA, Baltimore to New York.
— Joe B.
Still can’t believe how awesome the wedding went, especially our live performance.  Thanks again for getting together and practicing, as well as your willingness to perform in front of our friends. Couldn’t be happier how it turned out and the bride thought it was awesome and said it made the wedding. Winship and Lacey, great job playing and DJ’ing. I heard afterwards that the timeline got a little thrown off and appreciate your flexibility.  Thanks for playing a little longer than needed and absolutely killing the music and emceeing responsibilities. 
— Billy D.
Winship is amazing! We had him out for a grand opening for our new home community in Charlotte, NC. Working with his manager while booking and up until the event was very easy! She was very nice and accommodating. They showed up to the event on time and got right to work! Winship’s voice is so great! I could listen to him all day! He sang a variety of popular songs but with his own twist! So fun! While he was on his breaks, his manager had customized a recorded play list that I requested for FREE! All of our guests raved about his voice and thought he really added to the event! Overall, my experience with Winship and his team was great! They were all very friendly and happy to be at our event! I definitely recommend booking him for any type of event! I will definitely reach out to them again if I ever need another live performance!
— Megan W.
Thank you for providing music and announcements for Jason and Rachel’s wedding at Liberty Forge on October 8th. We loved all of the music - Winship solo, the band, and the tunes for dancing. What fun! Jason told his Father and I that he found music we would love and he was right! Your solos were soul-inspiring. It was so nice to meet you. We’d love to hear you again sometime. Thanks again!
— Brenda & Ross G.
From the moment we contacted them, Winship and Lacey were responsive, prompt and professional. We were planning an outdoor event and they offered to be flexible in case weather proved to be problem. They arrived early, were friendly and easy going, but most importantly, Winship sounded great and added a great deal to our party. Numerous people came up to me during the event to say how much they enjoyed his performance. Many thanks to Winship and Lacey for helping us throw a really successful party.
— Lance H.
I work as a sound guy in a music venue in Santa Monica, CA. I see talent come and go on a daily basis. I’ve never seen mad talent like I did with WINSHIP!!! Humble, down to earth, really chill artist I definitely want to bring him back ! A must see performance.
— Leonardo T. 
My wife and I entrusted Winship to play at our wedding recently and we could not have made a better decision. To give you an idea of how important music was to us, I married a musician so basically in her eyes, it was the tied for most important thing along with her dress. He played at our ceremony, had the trio during our cocktail hour and had him DJ our dance party. Seriously, he’s a jack of all and it all sounded fantastic. He’s got a souful vibe that we loved and was perfect for our ceremony and cocktail hour but his music selection during the dance party was spot on with both our older and younger crowds. If all of that wasn’t enough, you also could not get a nicer couple to work with. Lacey (his wife and manager) was a great communicator the whole time. They even both took time out of their hectic schedule to do a private rehearsal for us (we sang a duet with the trio)...and it turned out amazing. We had high expectations and they surpassed them! They’re honestly just awesome at what they do and even better people. I’d be more than happy to recommend them to anyone!
— Devon & Emily
Based on all of the existing positive reviews and his videos, we decided to book Winship for out Company Holiday Party. We had high expectations, and Winship and Lacey far exceeded them. From pre-event communication, to setup, performance and post-event tear down. They did a fantastic job. Winship’s musical abilities were a perfect compliment to our relaxed, fun atmosphere. I highly recommend Winship for any event!!
— Brian C.
I booked Winship (5 piece) to be the first band to play Rams Head Center Stage at the Arundel Mills Casino. They were so good that I asked them to stay on and play the same set later in the evening. They were professional, on time, and very easy to work with. 5 Stars all the way!
— Jason G.
Winship - thank you SO much for your services. The guests and other vendors remarked how great you were over and over to us. You were wonderful and we really enjoyed your songs.
— Federica R.
If I could imagine what a perfect day would be...I’m certain my imagination would bring me back to my wedding day on June 18, 2016. There were only a handful of things that I was clear on when I started planning my wedding over a year ago—-most important of which was that the music had to reflect the most beautiful aspects of ourselves—-me and my husband’s. We are romantic, friendly, positive, spiritual, adventurous and we just love family and people. Enter Winship and his lovely wife, Lacey. They were like old friends coming to join our extended family in celebration, in friendship and in love. There was clear resonance with the easiness and effortlessness the whole experience had been —-from booking, planning and during the entire wedding day experience. They were the consummate professionals. Winship’s easy style and memorable vocals together with Lacey’s generous assist during the Cocktail Hour, created for us an atmosphere with a whole lot of pure joy. The gratitude I feel is beyond words. Thank you Winship and Lacey for everything.
— Coco L.
We hired Winship to play at our wedding celebration in Connecticut and are really happy with our decision. The booking process is simple—Lacey is always quick to respond to emails and easy to work with. A few days before our wedding party she emailed me with a tentative timeline and made it pretty easy to go back and forth with her to figure out exactly what we wanted for music and what time frame would work best for our event. When I told her a bunch of our early-thirties crowd was really looking forward to dancing she tailored the timeline so Winship would play three sets early in the evening during cocktails and dinner and then we’d have a playlist of all our favorite dance songs toward the end of the evening. Her suggestion worked out perfectly—everyone got to enjoy Winship’s amazing talent early on and then dance all night once it got dark out. And though we had a specific pre-planned dance playlist they were really accommodating of our guests requests to play specific songs. My favorite part of our entire wedding celebration was getting to dance our “first dance” with my husband to our favorite song, “Wonderful Tonight” which Winship played beautifully. Our guests raved about the wonderful musician all night during our party and throughout the week following I got a bunch of emails from friends asking for his contact info so they can book him for their weddings. Winship is very talented and brings a great vibe to the event and his wife is so lovely, kind, and makes the whole process easy. I promise you will not be disappointed if you hire them to play your event.
— Voula L.
Winship played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour this past November - it was so incredibly special! As a bride, I will never forget standing at the top of the staircase preparing to walk down the aisle and hearing the most gorgeous version of “What a Wonderful World.” The cocktail hour songs were just lovely, he set a beautiful mood for the evening - just classic, he is an incredible talent both in his playing and singing. Lacey is an absolute joy to work with, she kept us on track with every detail and helped keep the timing just right throughout the night. I couldn’t ask for more, Winship and Lacey made our wedding day unforgettable.

HANDCRAFTED LIVE MUSIC

For the 2017/2018 season Winship is performing as a singing guitarist, singing pianist, and full band with the option for custom playlists before or between live sets and then as a live mixing DJ after. (In 2018 he'll be releasing a new innovative solo performance that achieves a world-class full band sound and will also be releasing a new original album.)

Winship is an award-nominated artist that stylizes a palette of select Top 40 covers along with his original music. His covers include rock, pop, motown, oldies, 80s, 90s and 2000s throwbacks, classics, funk, dance, jazz, and country; however his translations will feel like one, cohesive body of music entertaining guests and not like a disjointed human jukebox.

His crowd-pleasing style is described by clients as artistically inspiring, vibrantly modern, timelessly cool, and authentically fun. Artists covered may include Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Rihanna, Billy Joel, Marvin Gaye, John Legend, Earth Wind & Fire, Nat King Cole, Ed Sheeran, ACDC, Zac Brown Band, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Meghan Trainor, The Temptations, Sublime, Lumineers, Ray Lamontagne, and many more. 

More important than signing off on any of those specific artists is that you dig his overall vibe. Grab a cup of tea (or your other favorite beverage) and put on his Youtube video playlist to get a feel for his sound. 

MADE-TO-MEASURE SOUND

With decades of experience as a live performer and as a sound engineer he expertly combines this knowledge base to create the perfect audio levels for your guests whether it’s conversational background music or high-impact 2,000 person festival concerts.
