Have entertained in the Northwest Florida/US Gulf Coast area for 30 years. Began in middle school, high school & college talent contests singing classic country & mainstream, and expanded to other genres as time went on. Numerous community youth awards & honors from 1982 - 1999, including plaques from American Cancer Society, Council on Aging, Veteran's Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Northwest Florida Arts Council, & the Florida Motion Picture & Television Association.
I arrive 1 hour in advance, plug into power, and set up my own PA system (5-sq. ft.), props & music---in about 45 minutes. Program usually runs 1 hour, with DJ pre & post mixes, custom-themed. Have Saturn Station Wagon for transportation.

Mostly I provide my own sound system: 2 large floor speakers; 4-ft. folding table, highball microphone & stand, music stand, 8-channel mixer board & amplifier, digital key-changer, single CD deck & dual CS deck (alternating sometimes, between DJ sets.) Require at least room-level lighting; and a 3-prong plug-in. Have my own 50-ft. extension chord, and 2-prong adapter just in case.
Influences & Inspiration
Grew up watching lots of variety shows on TV: (Ed Sullivan, Lawrence Welk, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, the Osmonds, etc.) My parents loved classic Broadway & Hollywood musicals, holiday specials, and encouraged me to pursue singing, acting & performing arts. Got hooked on 70's - 80's country in my teens (Kenny Rogers, Tom T. Hall, Don Williams, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Jr., etc.) Mostly old-school classics, but will spin a (clean) contemporary or 2 if teens are present.
