Looking for that 'special' music for your wedding ceremony/reception(?) or, you want great entertainment for a company event but don't want to pay the [thousands of] bucks for a full band(?) or, you're throwing an annual soiree/party and you want a segue of great music that each & every guest will enjoy(!?). Whatever entertainment needs you have I will make sure that they are fulfilled. Rest assured that, by hiring me, you get not only a top-level performer (one who's always prompt, personable, captivating & courteous) but, also... above all... a consummate professional with decades of 'know-how' and entertainment experience. Please do contact me today!

If you prefer traditional music for your wedding ceremony I can perform "Canon in D" or perhaps you would like to walk down the aisle to a more contemporary selection like "Marry Me" by Train. I will work with you and assist you in selecting the perfect music for your most important day.

My Dad started me playing guitar at age 10 and I've continually developed my guitar-playing skills, having written more than 150 original songs and special pieces of music. In my career, I've supported such major acts as: The Goo-Goo Dolls, Matchbox Twenty, Glen Frey(The Eagles), John Waite, Eddie Money, Tonic, & Pat Benatar, having also performed at venerable venues like: the Bren Center, Coach House, Galaxy Theater, the Roxy, Verizon Amphitheater & Whiskey-a-GoGo.. and all the memorable gigs in between.
