I am a female vocalist that just so happens to play guitar. Sometimes it isn't just me that plays, I have my father (which is a lead guitarist) play with me from time to time. Adds a bit of flare to my music. Mostly I do covers ranging from country all the way to folk, rock, and everything in between. I maybe young but I love to play 60's and 70's rock from some of my biggest inspirations. Anyway, I like to call myself Famous Elsewhere and I can guarantee that you'll not regret hiring me as your nightly entertainment.
Price Range: $150 and up
Gig Length: 120 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Definitely an eclectic variety of music and some interesting twists thrown in there. They should expect songs that they know and love. Definitely ones that you can sing along to, have a beer, and get up to dance a time or two.
Well my name is Tristan Dunlap but I like to go by Famous Elsewhere as my stage name. I come from a small down around Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri where I grew up listening to some of the best musicians in the region. One of those musicians so happens to be my Daddy (and I'm not just saying that because he's my Dad either). From a young age I was immediately put into piano lessons where I learned the basics of technical musical skills and studied the classics. I soon grew tired of that and wanted to expand my tastes to playing well... what I wanted to play, not something on a piece of sheet music. Unfortunately though I was put into the marching band my 7th grade year and suffered through that til I was a sophomore in high school. There I learned how to play the saxophone and the clarinet. Still it didn't quench my thirst for being able to play my own hand picked music. So after dropping from that and piano lessons I swore off music until I was a Senior in high school where my Dad handed me a bass guitar and said "We need a bassist in the band. You're on next weekend." By god I was on that stage next weekend playing a full 3 hour gig. A couple of mess ups here and there but hey it was good for a rookie. From there I played with a band called Bliss Hippy for the last couple of years where I developed my singing skills and bass skills, and eventually picking up a guitar. I knew I'd have to be a rhythm guitarist if I wanted to be able to sing solo gigs. So here I am now, a few years into both and a lifetime of singing. Right now I am a full time college student studying animal sciences here at Mizzou and am wanting to indulge my passion of music. I am very professional and I will deliver exactly what I promise to. Guarantee the crowd will have a great time and will surely enjoy my witty dry humor along with my eclectic vocal style. If you would like references as to the way I conduct myself and how the crowd seems to like me I have a few that I would be happy with sharing with you. My music is a wide variety including artists like Miranda Lambert, Joan Bias, Loretta Lynn, The Beatles, and so much more.
Additional Booking Notes
Pretty much as long as I have a mic and a sound system to hook up into I'm good to go.
Really the set list changes depending on the venue that I go to.
