What to Expect
I don't like to gloat about my attributes because I know I have many flaws, but honestly I love to stay humble! I genuinely enjoy getting along with others and not starting arguments or drama, and I love meeting new people. I like to know things ahead of time so I can plan for them and set goals (such as knowing the time so I can be there early). I am shy but can be fearless, I wont bite but I can be serious when needed. Respecting others regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, situation is my hallmark. I love to have a good laugh and get to motivate others if opportunities arise.
Additional Booking Notes
- I am available from Mondays - Fridays in the evenings, but if you let me know ahead of time I can try and adjust my work schedule.
- One thing about me is that I can't read music sheet proficiently, just barely! But I can work with a metronome efficiently. This is how I play the majority of services in my church and band but I can do without it as well.
- I have been in services from 8pm to 5 am on a few occasions, all I ask is just for clear details, dates, times, names and numbers if possible.
- As to the stage and I, I have no preferences, just as long as I can sit and perform comfortably and communicate with the band members I should be okay! Also, I would greatly appreciate if told whether I need to bring my own kit or if you have your own.
I mostly play in church so a typical list would look like:
Grande y Fuerte MSM
Hossana Marco Barrientos
Sera Llena la tierra - Marcos Witt
En ti MB
Creo en ti
