My name is Jason Delaney and I am originally from Antigonish, Nova Scotia. I live near Calgary, Alberta and I am a husband to my beautiful wife Pam and a father to two amazing boys, Owen & Gibson. I began playing guitar around the age of 12 and continued my passion through high school where I played in a few rock bands and eventually on through university.
While in a Bachelor of Music Program at Dalhousie, I studied under Mr. Douglas Reach, an internationally acclaimed guitarist and instructor. I later moved to Alberta and finished my music education while at the University of Calgary under the guidance of Mr. Jacob Salomons, known as one of Canada’s premier guitar instructors. I have performed at several small concerts as a solo artist, a duo member and as part of 2 guitar orchestras while in university. I have also participated in several guitar masterclasses with world-renowned guitarists and was invited to the Christopher Parkening Annual Masterclass in Montana in 2002. I have played hundreds of weddings and other public events in Halifax and Calgary as a solo artist and as part of larger ensembles.
I am extremely proud to announce I am Canada’s Brand Ambassador for Paradis Polybass guitar systems and I’m honored to be associated with such an amazing product. I use Canadian-made Godin guitars exclusively and the added depth and dimension that the Polybass adds is absolutely incredible. The quality of the Polybass board itself is second-to-none and needs to be experienced in person to be believed!
I eat, sleep and breathe music, it’s who I am.

Jason did a phenomenal job at our wedding. He was responsive through the planning process and accommodating with our song requests. Jason’s music gave our wedding a truly magical ambiance, and many of our guests commented on what a nice touch it was to have live music during the ceremony. – Amanda & Torren, August 5, 2017
Where do I start? Jason is an incredible musician who takes great care of his clients. He has an extensive repertoire of music and my couples have always enjoyed his music. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for my clients weddings – Sonia Ulmer, Event Specialist & Owner of Enriched Events
Always impressed with Jason and he’s always adding new songs to his play lists. Great person and amazing guitar player. Jason always goes out of his way to ensure that every base is covered – sound check, equipment etc. I highly recommend Jason to anyone wanting a wonderful feel to their next event. – Gennaro S.
Jason was easy to communicate with and very quick to respond with over email. We were able to come up with a plan for the ceremony music. He was great during our ceremony. We had many guest complement us on our guitarist. He was professional in all ways – dressed professionally, played very well and handled the wind and cold very well. Thank you Jason! – Alesha & Darren, October 8, 2015
Jason was such a wonderful part of our wedding. We had an out of town wedding (Invermere) and he was more than happy to make the trip for the day. In fact, he showed up at the house just after 9am (for a 4pm ceremony), which meant he must have left his house before 6am! All to make sure there was no way he was late for the wedding. He responded so quickly to my questions and helped with the music selection. He was dressed very professionally and was so friendly. His music was wonderful and really added to the ceremony and reception… I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him – Janelle & Austin, August 15, 2015
Jason Delaney is one of the most talented musicians I have heard. He is professional and responsive. He will tailor his rather large repertoire to suit your musical tastes. His rates are very reasonable for what you get. Guaranteed to make your special day that much more magical! Great job Jason! – Anthony, January 31, 2015
Jason is amazing! He is incredibly accommodating, professional and personable. I’ve gotten so many compliments about our ceremony music that I’ve lost count! I couldn’t be happier!! – Melanie & Owen, August 16, 2014
Jason was SO wonderful!! His music was amazing and our guests loved it! It added such a beautiful touch to our ceremony- something I’ll always remember about that day! Jason is such a friendly and accommodating person. He is very professional and we truly appreciate all of the work he put in to make our day special!! We would definitely recommend him to anyone with an upcoming wedding!! Thank you Jason!! – Christie & Jeff, January 8, 2014
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Jason. His beautiful music simply elevated our garden wedding to the next level. He played while guests arrived for the ceremony and everyone loved listening as they waited. After that, he played during our champagne and cake cutting and people were enamoured with his music. Such a lovely person and so talented. We paid Jason to play only an hour during our cocktail hour, figuring guests would disperse as we took photos. But guests lingered on the veranda another 2h and Jason continued to play for them. We received so many compliments on our guitarist and the music and it was such a serene background (and in many ways a highlight) for our day. My only regret was that I couldnt sit longer and listen to his music!! We were very happy to pay Jason for the extra time he played…what a gentleman and a professional and such a kind kind person. Jason will make your day complete!! – Terri, June 21, 2014
I cannot say enough about Jason’s talent and professionalism. Asking him to play at our wedding ceremony in Kananaskis was one of the best decisions I made for our special day. From the first time I heard Jason play I knew I had to have him at our wedding. His guitar playing is absolutely beautiful. When I met with him before the wedding I just got such a good vibe from him and knew he was going to add the perfect touch to our day. He was so accommodating and made me feel very calm. And on our actual wedding day I could not have asked for a better person to play for us. Our officiant arrived an hour late for the ceremony and Jason continued to play for our guests without hesitation (broken foot and all!). Jason was one of my favorite parts about our day and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a beautiful guitar player. Our guests couldn’t say enough about his music and I will never forget the special touch he added to our day. Thankyou sooo much Jason! You’re the best! – Kristen & Steve, July 7, 2013
