I perform Classic Country tunes to a full band sound (with backing tracks). Also do a few Gospel and Originals. Totally self-sufficient, (transportation, sound system, instruments, etc.). I put on a very professional show, communicate one on one with the audience and do the very best I can under whatever situation I'm in. Available for Corporate Functions, Weddings, Private Parties, Pool Parties, In-Home gigs, Assisted Living facilities... you name it...I can play it!

Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
I offer a professional show of entertainment by not only performing, but also engaging my audience with talk, stories, clean jokes, cutting up, i.e., clean wholesome fun! My job is to entertain, not to bring my troubles, (if any), to the show. In my opinion, my job is to help the audience forget about their troubles by escaping into my performance. Always happy, always jovial, and do the best I can do under the given situation of the event.
Pretty cut and dry actually. Have been a working musician most of my life while juggling work, marriage, kids, grand kids, just life in general. Had aspirations when younger of being a "super star", (what performer doesn't), however at this stage in my life, making a decent living playing my music would not only be satisfying, it would also be successful. If given the opportunity to sign to a major label, would I?...in a heartbeat! Until that day arrives though, let's get out there and perform!
Additional Booking Notes
Do not own stage lights yet, but can get them if needed. As far as everything else, I provide.
