I perform well known songs from the 60's to today with my acoustic guitar and voice. I enjoy incorporating effects such as subtle drum beats and vocal effects like Reverb and harmony to make the songs interesting and pleasing to the ear. My compact portable sound system makes my act suitable for a small coffee shop to a large stage. I enjoy talking to the crowd if the environment lends itself to that. If background music is what you would like I can be content doing that too, letting the crowd do their own thing.
We had a county baby shower with about 60 people. The music was enjoyed by everyone. Ben did a great job of singing. Ben has a great personality and was friendly. He was a little late due to getting lost out in the country, so it took a little time to get set up. Other then that we would definitely have him again.

What to Expect
Here are some of the songs I do and what band recorded them. This is not a complete list as I am adding more songs to my repertoire every week.
I choose the songs that best fit the crowd and event I am playing for. I also play the songs in a way that best suits the crowd and event. If I am hired for quieter background music then I will play softer and maybe not belt out those high notes. If I am playing for a party that wants to dance I will play my guitar more lively, turn up the volume, and belt out those high notes.
If there are songs you would like for me to play I am a fast learner.
