I am a singer/songwriter from Southeast Kansas. My original songs include: Dirt Road, Kansas Girl, Easy and Slow, and Right By My Side(featured in the movie "Loaves"). I am available for all kinds of events and venues and can be booked as a solo artist or with the band. I have opened for Marty Haggard, Ashley Cleveland, Stoney Larue, Haywired, Nick McEwen and the 33, and many others. I travel with a small PA that is adequate for most acoustic/solo performances. For events that are over 400 people an adequate PA System and technician must be provided. Bookings that include the band must be booked no less than 1 month in advance.
Price Range: $300-$2500
Gig Length: 45 - 150 minutes
What to Expect
For the solo / acoustic sets: People will hear songs I've written about actual places, people or historical events, fun versions of classic rock songs, serious heartfelt songs, and some of their favorite songs from various genres. We will laugh, tell jokes, sing songs and have a great time. With a band you can expect more volume, energy and variety.
I was born in the summer of 1969 and grew up as a cowboy, the son of a PRCA Bullrider, in Southeast Kansas. Early on I fell in love with Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Merle Haggard, Waylon and Willie. By 1985 I was rockin' to Springsteen, John Mellencamp, and ACDC. My acoustic gigs consist of my original songs, select 80's rock songs, folk and country. I am a big fan of artists like John Prine, Merle Haggard, Todd Snider, Willie Nelson, etc.... I tell some stories and jokes and love to connect with a crowd. I love people and want them to feel like they are part of what I'm doing.
