First and foremost, I'm a pianist. However, that's a pretty large umbrella for the musical services I can provide. I love to entertain as a jazz pianist, spanning anywhere from Thelonious Monk to Herbie Hancock to Bill Evans; I also write original jazz pieces that have a bit more of a modern/hip-hop flavor, similar to the Fender Rhodes-inspired jazz fusion of the 70's.
I am also proficient in creating a wall of sound using a loop pedal. Genres I cover from that base include psychedelic rock, ethereal ambient, or basically whatever else you might request.
If you have any other questions, or have a specific sound/atmosphere you would like for your event, feel free to get in touch!
Price Range: $50 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
As a person of many instruments and genre, there really is no one thing that is similar between each of my performances. Basically, I can provide whatever sort of sound or vibe you would like, whether you are interested in relaxing jazz, modern jazz, ambient rock, or virtually anything else.
Additional Booking Notes
I come fully prepared with all instruments, amplification, and resulting jargon necessary for me to perform. However, if you already have a designated PA system or other means of broadcast, I have no problems with adjusting my gear to fit your vision.
