I offer a uniquely versatile, memorable, and adventurous experience to my guests and clients. With this time and practice I have learned to move the feel and flow of my music to match, affect, and alter the mood of any room for most any occasion. By using a Dynamic Scale system and percussive patterns on acoustic guitar in Ancient East African and Southern American styling, I can shift from curious blend of dark tones and shimmering harmonics perfect for intimate engagements and concerts to a dusty, warm streak of sunny trills to keep your heart on it's toes.
Music is my life and for my clients, I offer a unique visit into the world of aural creativity.
Price Range: $500 and up
Gig Length: 60 - 600 minutes
What to Expect
I am a versatile solution to most service needs, from table and bar service, hosting, and light good preparation. In most any other case, I can be a musical price of furniture or a dynamic bars zipping through crowds to surprise a soon-to-be bride.
My business is simply to be of greatest service to my clients, guests, and benefactors.

Additional Booking Notes
My act is largely pack-and-play, currently only acoustic with an ability to patch into house sound systems. Over time I will gather more specialized equipmentwto advance my act, but the intent to to be as set-and-forget as possible, freeing my clients to simply enjoy my services.
I begin with a few minutes of backstory and follow with a 3 act story told with notes and set changes.
This usually takes about 1 hour per story, with an intermission at 45 minutes.
I also offer more specialized packages. Information available upon request.
