Hi, my name is Tony. You can listen to my music samples below.
I am a worship Leader. I am not one drawn to the performance-centric realm of leading worship, I am interested in getting people into a deep, sacrificial place of worship. If you need guitar and vocal lessons I am open to that as well. I made some little recordings below if you care to listen. I play guitar and sing. I am willing to play churches, weddings, funerals etc.. anywhere worship is needed to fill the room.
We used Tony to fill in for our current worship leader. He is very talented and did a great job following through and communicating. We had several people in the congregation that commented about how much they connected with God while Tony was leading. As the senior pastor, I have a lot to to juggle on a Sunday morning. Tony created an environment that allowed me to focus on people rather than the music. I would absolutely use him again.
Tony is in an incredible worship leader. He possesses both the technical and vocal sills needed, but has that intuitive awareness of where people are as they worship. He was such a blessing to me personally and to my whole congregation.

What to Expect
This is not a hobby for me, this is my profession. I come prepared, early, and can bring all my own equipment if needed.
I typically like to incorporate upbeat songs as well as slower more intimate songs.
I will work with you to appeal to your audience, picking songs that will help them to engage in worship.
