Hello there, I am now booking my solo guitar 2012 holiday season performances, and I'm interested in playing events in New York City and Long Island.
An hour or two of music at your venue can add a lot of atmosphere and give your customers a nice diversion and a festive atmosphere. I charge $150 for two hours of music, and am flexible to play for longer. I invite you to treat your guests on a busy evening to a change of pace and music!
To hear me play, please email me and I will send you links of YouTube videos of my music and other info. Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you!
Whether you hire Lance Vallis or another Guitarist for your Portland event, we strongly recommend that all communication be kept on the Gig Salad booking platform as you book your Guitarist. When you do, we’re able to offer numerous benefits that we cannot guarantee if you take communication or deposit payment off the Gig Salad website. Our booking system is easy to use and handles secure deposit payments from you to the Portland Guitarist of your choice.
Be sure that the quote/agreement your Guitarist sends you outlines performance fees, travel fees, extras, arrival and departure times, cancellation policy, insurance information and other applicable details.
I am very passionate about performing music, and enjoy playing it all from rock to blues to jazz. I have released 4 CDs in my career, performed on board several different cruise ships, and taught hundreds of guitar students. I have played in groups ranging from rock bands and jazz quintets to musical theater pit orchestras. My musical heroes include Led Zeppelin, Charlie Christian, Kenny Burrell, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Beatles, Phish and The Meters. Originally from Long Island, New York, I first began learning guitar at age 15.
I moved from New York to Massachusetts to attend Berklee College of Music in 1995. I remained in Boston after leaving the school, and performed at the city's popular music clubs, including The Middle East and the Paradise. I moved to Portland, Oregon this past March, where I established the Portland Guitar Group.
I am available for all functions as a solo performer, or with a jazz quartet, blues group, or classic rock band! I will play anywhere from 1 hour of music to all night. I take special care to cater to my clients requests, and have a strong musical background to provide you anything from a Stevie Ray Vaughan shuffle to a swinging Benny Goodman tune. Please email me for further info!
