For nearly 20 years, V & G Entertainment have been providing live musical entertainment for over a thousand weddings, corporate and special events. Our vast network of professional ensembles are located throughout most of British Columbia including the Greater Vancouver Area, Whistler, Pemberton, Squamish, Vancouver Island (Victoria, Nanaimo, Tofino) the Okanagan (Kelowna, Kamloops, Peachland, Penticton) as well as in parts of Washington, USA. (Bellingham, Blaine, Tacoma & Seattle)
While facilitating all facets of your entertainment needs, V & G aim to exceed expectations and only engage performers of the topmost caliber. Our musical acts are professional in every aspect; through their proficiency on their instrument; in their demeanor; their punctuality; and in their appearance and presentation. Our entertainers are always impeccably dressed, instrument cases and bags are always tucked out of sight; cables are neatly taped down and this attention to the tiniest of details shows.
Every client is unique, and every event is momentous. Recognizing this, we strive to work with you one-on-one to ensure the music for your occasion is a reflection of you and/or your company.
Stephen formed V & G in 2001 when a friend-of-a-friend was getting married and was in need of live music for their ceremony. Shortly after that, a friend of this friend-of-a-friend also got married and was also seeking live music. And from that V & G Entertainment was born!
