I am a mature, solo guitarist that fits nicely in any small venue playing light jazz and easy listening music that is quiet and easy to have a conversation over without having to shout. No chatty banter, just nice, light jazz guitar, (With electronic accompaniment) that is perfect for supper clubs, smaller parties, wineries, special events etc.

Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
Smooth and Blue 1.0
My name is Ray and I am a solo guitarist, (With electronic accompaniment) for very small venues and the smaller budget. I use the name Smooth and Blue 1.0 as I am one-third of our jazz trio, Smooth and Blue.

No chatty banter, just nice, light jazz guitar that is perfect for Supper Clubs, Dinner Parties, Wineries, Special events etc.
After 50+ years of having a guitar in my hands, playing mainly rock and/or country in bands across the country, it's time to quiet things down a bit and play a little jazz.
The music paid for my kids' braces and school clothes over the years but now they're grown and I am retired for the most part.
I still play with a few groups part-time and as a solo guitar with electronic accompaniment for those who enjoy live, background music.
No bad habits. No huge equipment. No undue noise or stress.
Additional Booking Notes
I need an electrical outlet and a small place to sit with my guitar and a small amplifier.
