What to Expect
When you book BPEACE you receive:
- an unprecedented level of reliability, punctuality and integrity normally not associated with 'artists' and especially 'musicians' - namely, a BUSINESS-LIKE demeanor and presentation.
- a very 'in the moment' experience - this means: taking song requests on the spot, improvisations, kids playing the shakers, an engaged crowd and much more.
- a musician who's been heard on NPR and had his music used for a Pacifica Radio Pledge Drive in Texas!
- a singer/guitarist who is 'on the verge' - literally, an up and comer inching his way closer to Hollywood!
- continued correspondence from the beginning to the end of the booking/event experience.
- a personable, charismatic and genuinely grateful individual!
- top of the line audio and musical equipment.
BPEACE is reliable, charismatic and punctual. He's made a living busking in NYC's Central Park and Subway Stations, earning him an interview and jingle on New York's WFUV Radio Station. Later, he performed at resorts and chateau's around Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire, while his debut record, 2009's The Peace, was heard on NPR and garnered a 3/5 star review on All Music Guide (Dave Matthews Band's Crash received 3.5/5). Additionally, he's shared the stage with Phish drummer Jon Fishman and has performed upwards of 2,000 shows in his storied and adventurous career.
Now in San Diego, BPEACE has performed at AVANT Restaurant at Rancho Bernardo Inn, the Loma Club, the Marriott Marquis, the Hyatt Regency and much, much more. He's currently recording his 2nd full length album in Point Loma.
BPEACE plays a Taylor guitar and uses a vocal harmony pedal which provides a rich layer of harmony to the vocals. With his Boomerang Phase 3 Looping Pedal, BPEACE is able to stack multiple musical layers (guitar, bass, percussion, dj scratching, lead guitar), thus creating the sound of an exciting, adventurous and thoroughly sincere one-man-band. Most recently, at a Golf Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, one patron described the sound to his wife as 'Southern Rock.' To be sure, the BPEACE show has soul, roots, americana, tact and a bit of folk to keep the ambience relaxed and exciting all at once.
