I am a seasoned guitarist looking for opportunities to make any occasion more enjoyable with my music. My main genres are classical and jazz, but if the event calls for it, I can even play heavier genres. I enjoy creating music and performing for others.

Gig Length: 20 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
I can play jazz and classical for background music at events such as weddings or parties. I can also be an opener to a main event, or I can even be the main event if called upon. Whatever needs to be done, I will put all my efforts to accomplishing tasks given to me.
My name is Zan Armentrout and I have been playing guitar for an entire decade. I am 15 years old and I am playing college entry level music and I have college level music theory. I have stage experience, as I have played gigs with a rock band in the past. I play lead guitar for my band (Traffik Jam) but I am looking to branch out as a solo musician as well as play in my band. I am looking to play jazz and classical for most events like weddings and dinners and such, but I thrive in blues, rock, and even heavy metal. My music can be used for absolutely any occasion, and I can even call upon my band if need be. I am currently putting most of my energy into my music, and I am looking for an opportunity to show my music to the world.
Additional Booking Notes
I can use my own sound as long as there is a power supply or wall outlet. I am very versatile in technical requirements.
Jazz - Misty, Mr. P.C (For starters)
Classical - Spanish inspired and renaissance pieces
Other - I love to play blues tunes in the style of Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughn. I also love 70s and 80s hard rock like Led Zepplin and Bon Jovi. Another one of my favorite genres is neoclassical, in the style of Steve Vai or Yngwie Malmsteen.
I can make a set anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours. I can use lots of improvisation to use time. Although I can play other genres, my main genres are still jazz and classical as I will most likely be playing solo.
