I have been rated by Gigmasters as a *5 star* entertainer for the past eight years in a row. I keep my booking calendar separate from the Gigmasters calendar. If I have sent you a bid, I have already checked and am open on that date. I want the music to truly be a live performance, so while I perform as a guitar player/singer (one man band), I don't add pre-recorded backing tracks or pre-recorded music. This gives me more flexibility with the music and performance, and always has that "live" feel we all enjoy at concerts and other live performances It's just me, a guitar, and a portch board bass (a neat little tuned drum I play with my feet). I also can create instant harmonies of my voice, and add them in when it's appropriate for the song.

I am very proud of my CUSTOMER REVIEWS. Take a moment to read some of the past customer comments. They let you know how successful your party or event will be, and why my music is always the perfect fit. I was exposed to lots of different styles of music during my younger years, and use all of them during my Gigs. I have played with the Ike and Tina Turner Review, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Tommy Castro, Delbert McClinton, Bruce Channel, Harlow Wilcox, Edgar Cruz, Rob MacNally, Red Young and a few other nationally known recording artists. I have also done session playing for other artist around the country.

In addition to having a normal corporate career, I have been a gigging solo guitar player/singer for most of my adult life. I have performed a One-Man-Show in Las Vegas (for over a year), and now specialize in Private Parties and Functions, and Corporate Events. I have a very large musical repertoire, and can mix enough different types of music during my sets to please everyone in the crowd. I am equally at home at YOUR private house party as I am on a concert stage.

It can be as simple as me singing and playing the guitar; or for most Gigs, I also play a porch board bass with one foot and control a voice harmonizer with the other. The harmonizer creates instant harmonies of my voice, and makes for a very fun and full sound. I have high quality instruments and PA sets that will handle any sized venue, from large halls and outdoor events to small parties in private homes. I always keep very good control of the sound volume and make sure it is at the appropriate level for the event. Don't worry about things getting "too loud". I realize conversations and socializing are one of the main reason for the party, and make sure to keep the music in the background. But, when you want to Rock & Roll, I am always ready to "step-it-up".

Roy was fantastic! His songs were perfect for our crowd, and our guests were thoroughly entertained. I would definitely hire Roy again and would refer him to others, as well.

Roy was a pleasure to work with and a great musician. He took the time to look at our song requests and learn some of the ones he didn't know in order to create the perfect playlist for us. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks, Mauricio
