Always wanted to have Willie play for your party. Well here is your chance to have the next best thing. I do a solo act. Singing Willie songs and playing my guitar and most incredibly, the spit'n image of Willie. I hear it everywhere I go without even trying. I'm willing to travel a 200 mile radius around Portland Oregon. Contact me and we can discuss the details and I can give you a link so you can listen to me doing a few short clips of some of the songs I do.
Thanks for checking me out. And did I mention how much I look like Willie?

Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
For my act I preform with my amplified guitar and a Bose PA system. I don't sing to recorded music at all. I do use a drum machine on a few songs. This gives the set some diversity and helps give some texture to the songs. My act is very convincing. The audience will come away felling that they got to see and hear Willie Nelson doing a one man show with his best know songs and a few others.
I have always been a singer. It started in grade school and by the time I was in Jr High I was singing lead in a barbershop quartet.
In high school I joined the choir and a number of choral groups. I picked up the guitar about then and started a five piece rock band. I took a break from singing in public after college and focused on raising a family and career. Now I am back. As time has past I have come to bear a real resemblance to Willie Nelson and so I decide to combine my looks and my musical talent to pay tribute to Mr. Nelson.
Additional Booking Notes
I will need power to plug in. I maybe a solo act but I put on a big show.
