My name is Aaron Pile, and I am 27 years old. I am married to my beautiful wife and have a baby girl named Ruby. I have been playing guitar and singing for the past 12 years. I have performed in various bands, across the country and in a variety of musical genres.
I have my own sound system that I can bring and set up, or just come and plug into an existing P.A. system.
I also have a partner who plays with me on a regular basis when the event or coordinator requests a duo.
Depending on the event, venue, or purchaser request, I am willing to dress in formal or casual attire, as appropriate.
I strive to be professional with my employers, but I am very open to working with them to create the musical atmosphere they envision. I can learn most songs, but if there's something I can't do with excellence, I will be open and honest about it and offer alternatives.
When I am hired to play or sing for any event, it is very important to me that the purchaser is fully satisfied with my services. So whether I am providing background music for a party, or singing a song for a service, I always come prepared. It is very important to me that I am punctual and on-time, so I always try to be at the venue early.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 15 - 180 minutes
I can play instrumental guitar or vocal/guitar performances. I typically perform in party settings as background music and leading music for church services. I also regularly perform at weddings and receptions, and have sung the National Anthem for Patriotic Events, and business openings.
I can fit into most any space to play- I have my own P.A. system and can set it up if the venue doesn't provide sound. I do not have my own lighting setup. My main request is that I am allowed 45 minutes to an hour to set up ahead of time.
I know hundreds of Christian worship songs.
I can also have about 30 original songs if the event calls for it.
I play my own rendition of the National Anthem.
