I play solo jazz guitar - like cocktail piano but on guitar. My catalog includes jazz standards, bossa novas, blues, and a few pop/rock classics.
Of course, I can also put together jazz ensembles of any size as needed.
There are samples on my web site.
Price Range: $100-$500
Gig Length: 60 - 300 minutes
What to Expect
My solo jazz guitar makes excellent back ground music for any event. It can be relaxing music behind dinners, receptions, parties, or weddings. With the addition of other musicians, things can remain background music or can get more energetic and danceable, as needed.
I have played for years in various jazz bands and a few rock and blues bands. I also have an MA in Classical Guitar. I've also spent years working on cruise ships and played guitar all over the world.
Additional Booking Notes
All I really need is a 5'X5' space with access to electricity.

I provide my own equipment, but a chair without arms would be nice. If you don't have one, please let me know and I'll bring my own.
