About
I am a solo guitarist/singer that has been playing and performing professionally for over 25 years. I currently have regular bookings at various local hotels, restaurants, and bars, but have spent 15 years touring extensively throughout the United States performing my original music. I am also booked for many other events which include private and corporate parties, weddings, and festivals every month.

In many cases the venue you are choosing for your event will require the performer to carry a liability insurance policy if you are not working with their in-house planner. I carry a comprehensive liability policy which meets the requirements of every venue that I have ever worked in. Any venue can be added if required, for a nominal inclusion fee.

My playlist is comprised mostly of classic rock and acoustic music (Tom Petty, Steve Miller, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd, James Taylor, Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews, Eagles, John Mellencamp, etc.). I play alot of beach bars, so I do some Jimmy Buffett, Bob Marley, Van Morrison, and alot of fun stuff! I can throw a fun party, a casual "beachy" event, a classy cocktail hour, or a professional corporate event. Whatever the setting requires, I can accommodate the tastes of a wide range of ages, and create any desired mood for the event.

I also have the capability of adding other players to my performances for a variety of settings. I partner with another acoustic guitar player as a duo, and also utilize a percussionist for a duo. I have the ability to put together a trio package with either 2 guitars and a percussionist, or a guitar, bass, and percussionist. The musicians that I utilize are all professionals that have exceptional skills, and extensive experience.

P.S. I am strictly acoustic (no machines, "band in a box", or other pre-recorded tracks). The "Cover songs" that are included here were recorded with one take, live, with no editing. I did a short excerpt from each of the songs to give you an idea as to what I sound like as a solo performer.

Scott was absolutely amazing! We hired him to play at a casual reception dinner held at a restaurant and it was WONDERFUL. So many people came up to us complimenting his talent and asked where we found him. He is perfect for our event with a nice mellow acoustic beach vibe. Due to weather, our event was pushed back 2 hours and Scott was more than understanding. I would certainly recommend Scott for your event.

We couldn't have made a better choice with hiring Scott to perform at our wedding reception. He was so talented, so professional, and he exceeded our expectations tremendously. So many of our guests came up to us asking where we found him because he was so good! I am so thankful he was there to make our night so very special. He chose the most perfect songs to sing, and made the atmosphere so warm and welcoming! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts....we love Scott!!

Scott was a true pleasure to work with from beginning to end. I have never received so many compliments the following day about the entertainment. I was looking for someone to compliment a networking evening on the beach and he was perfect. Scott has a great song list and a great voice. People enjoyed listening to him and could still hold conversations with each other. Thanks Scott!

Scott was the consummate professional. He is a solid musician, composer and performer. We had a beautiful backyard wedding and Scott had much to do with the success of the evening. Looking forward to working with him again someday. I highly recommend Scott for casual and semi formal events. If you are looking for a great vocalist and even better guitar player who understands the nuances of performing, then you should hire Scott. Thank you, Scott!!!! We very much appreciated you!!!

We have used Scott twice for events. He is always the hit of the party! He is professional and incredibly talented. He is so easy to work with, and always accommodating to the needs of our event. We enjoy his music so much that we even love to frequent the local beach bars that he plays at! He is a great guy and an amazing musician. Our personal favorite is his original song, "On My Way!" You will not be disappointed hiring him for your party or event.

Scott was fantastic. This was my 2nd time booking him at my home and he has done many gigs for our company in the past. Each performance is spot on for the needs of the environment and he has always been very well received by our employees and my guests! Thank Scott for another great performance!!

Couldn't be more pleased. While we were preparing for the day, my fiancé and I had grandiose plans to micro-manage Scott with which songs to play (but didn't have the energy to review all of them). Ours was an outdoor small lakeside wedding. Aside from a couple songs we brainstormed, he suggested we just trust his experience and ability to 'read the mood of the crowd and setting'. So glad we did. It was perfect. All of our guests raved about how perfect his acoustic set and vocals were for both the ceremony and reception. My only complaint: he couldn't stay longer than what we agreed because of another gig. We would have kept him until the last guest left.
