Over the past 20 years, Ryan McIntyre has performed at hundreds of wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, cocktail hours, wedding dinners, and receptions. Highlighted by his award winning vocals and crisp, clean guitar work, Ryan has provided the perfect soundtrack for countless couples on the biggest day of their lives.
While he is one of Wisconsin’s most sought after wedding vocal soloists, he also offers packages which include full DJ services or a live band option featuring some of Southeastern Wisconsin’s top professional musicians. For couples deciding between live music and a DJ, Ryan has created a “best of both worlds” option; making each wedding he plays a memorable, unique event featuring some of the best music available in Wisconsin.
“Performing a song as a bride walks down the aisle is one of the greatest honors for a musician. It’s a moment every bride dreams of, and I get to be a little part of that moment. With that honor, comes responsibility. I make sure the song is well rehearsed and performed to perfection. I also keep constant communication with the officiant and any bridal assistants to ensure that each song starts and ends with perfect placement.”
Ryan’s catalog of live music is incredibly versatile, deep, and ever growing. The list includes hundreds upon hundreds of songs ranging from Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, and The Beatles, to Michael Bublé, Jack Johnson, and Coldplay. In the months prior to the wedding, Ryan works closely with each couple to discuss and agree upon a set list ahead of time.
“I pride myself in putting the couple first. While I’m happy to offer suggestions and help with song choices, I want the couple to feel comfortable asking me to learn specific favorites, so they hear exactly what they want to hear on their big day.”
While most of his work is done in southeastern Wisconsin, Ryan has traveled across the country and overseas to perform destination weddings.
Music is an incredibly important part of any type of social gathering, especially a wedding. Ryan can take care of individual portions of the day, yet also has the unique ability to provide everything music related from the moment the first guests arrive to the ceremony until the last guests leave the reception.
