What to Expect
My goal is always to make sure that the music adds to the overall enjoyment of the day for you and your guests. I have played over 1000 weddings and corporate events combined and so I will have my part. I typically arrive 1 1/2 Hours before my start time to get set and in place (setup takes about 30 minutes). My only technical need is a working power outlet or plugged in extension cord within about 20 feet of the performance area.
Shows feature intricate guitar, vocals, harmonica, and percussion (hi-hat). Plus ukulele!
I look forward to working with you!
Hi there, My name is Clifton and I am a professional guitarist and singer who provides live music for events of all types. I have performed professionally for more than 25 years and have also been a loyal bandmate, recording artist, songwriter, and producer. I enjoy making music and my song list covers a lot of great artists from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, and Ray Charles, to Tom Petty, Jack Johnson, Coldplay, Amos Lee, and Ray Lamontagne. I am flexible, responsive, prompt, and prepared. Please let me know what you have planned and I am happy to help bring some great live music to your event. If your budget allows, please consider my acoustic guitar duo called Melonbelly as we make a really great sound and bring a ton of experience with us.
Additional Booking Notes
My only technical need is a working power outlet or plugged in extension cord within about 20 feet of the performance area. Other than that, I will have everything else I need with me!
