What to Expect
A professional performance by a professional musician. I am there to provide a fun and enjoyable time for your audience. I currently know and/or have played over 400 different songs by a WIDE VARIETY of over 60 artists. Additionally, I have released two professionally produced and recorded CDs and I'm working on a new project - so I play some of my own original music. I have almost 700 solo performances under my belt from clubs, to private events, to large outdoor venues, and can pretty much tailor my act for the audience at hand. I don't use lyric sheets or an iPad to read lyrics or music. I learn the songs in rehearsal, and I prefer to engage with the audience when I play live - preparation is a big part of that.
Additionally, I play through a state of the art Bose L2 system, with pro microphones and first rate guitars.
