What to Expect
I usually show up an hour early to set up and get a feel for the room/venue.
I am not chatty, I am there to perform music. I love requests and occasionally someone from the audience will join me on stage for a song or two.
You may choose to have a break in the music for announcements, or to 'roast' the guest of honor.
After most shows I promptly pack my gear quietly and leave. (once I am paid)
I played trumpet in school for 7 years, then taught myself to play guitar. I played on and off 30+ years while raising 2 daughters and making a living but wasn't serious.
In 2014 a friend asked me to fill in at a show. The crowd enjoyed it, so I was asked to perform the following month.
Since then I have thrown myself into my music, playing out with friends and at open mics. In 2015 I started doing solo gigs and ended up entering a few competitions taking an award for 'male entertainer of the year' and 'male vocalist of the year' alongside Chris Fyfe an Dan Corbett.
Today I play mostly solo gigs at local pubs, breweries, restaurants, and private parties. I am also working on putting a band together with others who are serious about the music.
I am a Veteran, member of the American Legion, the Eagles, and the Maine Academy of Country Music.
Additional Booking Notes
Small rooms I can perform acousticly without an amp or mic.
Most places I bring a small P.A. system consisting of a mixer, two 10" powered speakers, and a microphone. This system (and myself) will fit in a limited space.
Outdoor shows I add a 12" powered Sub for a little more punch.
This system requires a consistent, clean, grounded, power source of 115 volts AC.
If your event is in a remote location, I have a Honda 2000 (very quiet) generator I can supply.
