I have been playing guitar and studying music for 37 years. I have lived in Sonoma County California for most of my adult life. I grew up in Bronx New York, where I began playing music as a young teenager. I have played in clubs in NY as well as around the Bay Area in northern California. I enjoy playing all styles of music. I have 3-4 hours worth of solo guitar pieces. I also have many original guitar pieces and can improvise on a professional level.
I currently play in 2 bands, one(Vitamin Girl) as a guitar player/singer and the other (The Maldonado Brothers) as a bass player/singer. I have been a full time music teacher for the past 12 years. I also play mandolin and ukulele. I will be on time and professional. I can play requests, especially if I know in advance and have time to prepare(new tunes). I can be "up front" and entertaining as well as play in the background for corporate events or wine tastings, for example.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 120 - 300 minutes
Pleasant music to entertain and add colorful ambiance to your event. The experience will be at times toe tapping and other times be comtemplative. The music will blend with the rest of the experience so that the attendees can either listen intently or feel comfortable with the music being enough in the background for conversation to not be drowned out.
I can provide a PA system. I have my own gear, ie, instruments, amplifiers, speakers, cables, music stand, chairs
I write a new set list every time I play. I have too many songs to list here. Better to inquire with me first. I can learn any tunes that I don't already know, so please make a request.
