What to Expect
Expect a very good attitude with great creativity and flexibility. Keep in mind I am a vocalist and percussionist as well. I do have my own P.A., amplifiers and mics. I am a great entertainer and can be as aggressive or low key as you need me to be. I have a good amount of experience in the recording studio.

Additional Booking Notes
That's the nice thing about working with me. I am easy....depending on the venue....at worse, somebody has to mic me up.
