Live Musician

Dave Francis

Dave Francis is an accomplished performer, arranger, composer, teacher, and veteran of many wedding gigs.  He has worked for the past 15 years as one of Missoula's most sought-after guitar teachers.  "Teaching affords me the opportunity to relate to and interact with hundreds of different musicians.  I usually gain as much insight into the artistry of music as my students do, and playing guitar all day for a living keeps my skills sharp".

In addition and in conjunction with his work as a teacher Dave also works with several music publication companies as an arranger of popular music.  "The idea is to take a song and break down its essence.  Melody, percussion, bass, chord harmonies, and groove are all considered.  The fun, and challenge inherent to this process is discovering how to simultaneously combine all of these elements onto a single instrument".  This process has made him very comfortable with imagining customized playlists for events and delivering performances of songs that haven't been introduced to the world yet.

"My favorite aspect of playing weddings is the opportunity to use my skill set and experience planning to help bring all the elements together.  Seeing the joy of the present on my client's faces is so rewarding, and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to share in those precious and intimate moments."

We can't say enough good things about RMF! From the get-go they were so professional. They definitely have all their ducks in a row. If they missed a call from me, it was always returned before the end of the same day. It's so nice to deal with a business who actually communicates on a professional level! Our DJ, Sam, was effortless to work with. He was also so much fun and conducted the wedding with such good energy. He went with the flow of things and was flexible to take our guests requests. He had everyone dancing immediately from the get-go all the way until the venue had to shut us down! So great! Thank you RMF!

Jayme was fantastic! He was incredibly conscientious of our time and getting things moving smoothly. As a bride, he allowed me to relax and made sure that I was ALWAYS having fun and enjoying myself. Nearly all of our guests made positive comments about Jayme and how kind and welcoming he was the entire night! We highly recommend Jayme to all couples getting married!
