Additional Booking Notes
Like my technical fingerpicking style, our sound is clean and balanced and always the right volume. We supply all our own equipment and gear, lighting etc. Our gear setup includes Bose, JBL, Allen & Heath, Audix, Boss, Rain Song and Fender. All we need is a 120 volt AC outlet. We do request that we be supplied a small amount of food at some point during the event (or after) for consumption during a short break. For example : Light Hours d'ouvres are fine. We don't use or consume alcohol.
