I am a solo acoustic musician and DJ, and I love what I do. It defines me. I live for god, for our country, for our service men and women, and my friends and family. I am a retired 25 year military veteran.
I believe the client needs to come first, always. It's my job to ensure that you are happy, satisfied, and have an experience that will be memorable not only for you, but also for whoever else is present for your event. With me you are getting someone who lives by the core values of honestly, truthfulness, and integrity. I look forward to communicating with you regularly as we prepare for your event, thus ensuring a product that you enjoy thoroughly.
I want to play music that makes people happy, and longing for more. I like songs that have meaning, and that connect with me on a personal level. Sometimes the connection is the lyrics, sometimes it's the chord structure. Sometimes it's the rhythm or tempo. Always though, the song is moving in me, and I want it to move in the audience also. I enjoy interacting with those around me, and when I am on stage, that still holds true. I'm a people person, and a humble musician, so I am most in my element bantering back and forth with the crowd. If I'm performing as a DJ, and not as an acoustic musician, I am still very comfortable on the microphone, and aim to keep the crowd entertained. The personal connection may not be the same as when playing guitar, but it's still there.
I tend to choose songs that resonate with me, and that I believe will resonate with my audience. It could be Motley Crue, John Denver, Frank Sinatra, or James Taylor. Or anywhere in between. The song needs to have an element that I believe will be a common language for both myself and my listeners. I am constantly striving for the perfect acoustic tone, and the ability to change it from song to song.
Currently, I am playing live gigs and performing as a DJ as time allows between my duties as a full-time single father to my amazing 6 year old son, and a full-time student at Berklee College of Music. I am in the very beginning phases of exploring songwriting, and would ultimately like to write and play my own original music. When time allows I am usually home working out new backing rhythms on my looper, experimenting with vocal techniques, experimenting with new DJ software, or working out new songs.
As a side note, I am also a licensed pastor who is able to officiate weddings in the state of Florida. I am a Christian who believes in the sanctity of marriage, and the teachings of the bible. I attend church routinely, and have a solid foundation on which I place my faith. I would be honored to work with you to ensure you have the perfect wedding ceremony.
I want to personally thank you for considering me for your event, and wish you all the best!
