Hello and thank you for taking the time to review my promo kit. :-) I am a singer and acoustic guitarist whose main focus is to
provide energetic live music that can be tweaked to suit any situation whether private part, wedding, restaurant, cafe, corporate party, or festivals. I also perform German songs. If you are searching for a memorable, fun, and family-friendly acoustic experience in the Tampa Bay area, you have found it!!
I offer two main configurations adaptable to what you are looking for:
1. Solo performance - I play guitar and sing songs arranged for a one person performance.
2. Guitar/ singer Duo - I can bring along other talented musicians, most of whom, can provide improvisational guitar sounds, lead, rhythm and vocal support. Sometimes we will switch "duties" and take turns being creative and feed off of crowd stimuli. Fun, hard work, and some spontaneity (musically!! :-)).
3. I can also invite a third musician who can play the cajun beatbox for rhythm.
My youtube page for additional music:
This is an exciting opportunity for me to "delve further into" the live music scene mostly as a solo musician. If you are from the local Tampa area, you may have seen me play at Love's Artifacts every Monday evening where I host open mic night. May may have also seen me play before at Sakana Sushi, BarFly, Cork N' Olive, Ozona Pig, Everything Dolce, Capitol Beer House, various Festivals or other venues around the Tampa area. I also played gigs while stationed in Germany when I was in the Air Force. Currently, I play every Saturday at the FLorida Winery in John's Pass. If you are a restaurant and are possibly interested in booking me, I will offer one hour of free music if you are local to see if my music is something that would suit your atmosphere.
Basically, I perform as a solo guitarist/ singer in a variety of settings or capacities. Whether it's a maxed out beach bar patio, restaurant, wedding, private or corporate party, coffee shop or lounge, I love to perform and can adjust my playing/ volume to suit whatever situation. I like to be creative in my interpretation of songs yet maintain the recognizable elements of them.
I consider myself to be a stripped down guitarist - that means, apart from my amplified acoustic guitar and vocal mic, I use no effects other than those that come pre-loaded on the equipment I use; I use a Soloamp by Fishman (220 Watts) which is enough for restaurant and beach settings. I sometimes will use a little reverb or chorus depending on the song. My goal is to preserve the natural sound as much as possible.
My song variety is rather eclectic and it grows virtually daily and with each musical influence I encounter whether it be someone in the audience with a suggestion, a song I hear on the radio, or at the store, or I hear on Youtube. My selection ranges from the Beatles, Ray Lamontagne, Coldplay, Peter Frampton, John Mayer, etc. I love acoustic songs which add to the experience of a beach lounging kind of day.
If there are certain songs you wish to request as part of my performance that are currently not on my set list, I can try to learn them with advance notice and incorporate them into the performance!!
Thank you for checking out my profile and I hope to be a part of your next celebration, may it be a birthday party, corporate event, or public venue.
