What to Expect
Solo acoustic, or a duo with a fantastic electric lead guitarist. Depending on the mood of the night/party, I can play more intimate soft acoustic stuff, or more uptempo harder rocking acoustic stuff. I also tend to put my original songs into the mix where it seems appropriate. I've also played many gigs on stages where I've opened for other bands, doing mostly or all original songs.
