My self contained sessions utilize guitar effects, beats, & small p.a. system. I improvise musical patterns on rhythmic themes See picture for an idea how my set up appears. Usual gigs of this type for me are about 50 to 100 people. Let me know event logistics. (No worries about music performance rights with my material - perfect for techy and modern-themed events on commercial property!)
