HARDEST-WORKING: You can not find an entertainer who delves into such detail and pours every ounce of their energy into your event the way I do. The keys to my success are passion & dedication.
TASTY & TASTEFUL: I live and breathe every song I interpret - first picked up the guitar at 1 1/2 yrs old, this is vocation and sacred privilege. Upon booking I will learn to play ANY song your heart desires; making your special day even more special is my M.O. treating EVERY PERFORMANCE as if it could be my last, hence client ratings. Allow me to show you the way to a musical event to look back on and speak of fondly for decades to come. To me the small things add up to a big picture: early arrival, cordiality and full attentiveness are the only things you'll receive other than the music.
A full-time MUSICIAN ON A MISSION; start to finish the eye & ear for detail you want - great experience and mind-blowing performance EVERY TIME ; the easy part of your event. For even more ease in the most rustic settings high quality battery-powered amplification (i.e. outdoor weddings) to eliminate need for electric-outlets or a 2,000 watt PA system with sonic enhancement hardware for bigger events, or a mid-size vocal / guitar amp perfect for backyards and living rooms.
MODERN & OLD SCHOOL: Purist Solo Acoustic Performance AND / OR inclusion of iPad One Man Band !!
NO CHEESE: Showcasing real deal musicianship regardless of Beethoven or Beatles.
HIGHLY-SKILLED & HARD-WORKING: change everything the day before the event and I will accommodate every last request. You are hiring a 100% PRO when you use my services who plays all week full-time.
A lively performer, energetic & positive - most of all love to see people have fun and forget about their everyday lives; always performing encore sets regardless of pay when you and your guests want more. Well-known for 4 hour marathon sets packed with great music appropriately & seamlessly transitioning from back to foreground.
Thank you for considering me, book me now and I will go every extra mile to make you glad you did.
