In all the years we've been playing the only complaint I get is that people don't want us to stop! Drawing on decades of live performance experience, my band of seasoned musicians will entertain and stoke the party atmosphere of any event; whether it's the acoustic duo for a more intimate setting, or the full throated 4 or 5 piece band! We feature a mix of my original Blues/Country/ Americana songs and covering the songs of artists from Johnny Cash to the Rolling Stones for dancing or just tapping your feet and "hootin' and hollerin'" We provide high quality live music for the music enthusiast or folks who just want to have a good time! (No worries , we will stop when you need us to.)
What to Expect
Whether a scaled down acoustic duo or the full 4/5 piece band, you will hear powerful vocals backed by experienced high quality musician ship in a live performance of emotionally charged, well crafted original songs mixed with high energy covers of classic rock country and blues. We entertain and engage the audience to create a lively party atmosphere in which people can step away (literally for those who like to dance) from day to day stresses and have fun!
