"GIGMASTERS BEST OF 2015" My solo act is comprised of myself playing guitar (Acoustic & Electric), harmonica and singing with pre-recorded band and backup vocal tracks. Of course, my act is a lot more affordable than a band, but sounds like the real thing.
I am an accomplished polished singer and guitar player with over 45 years of experience. My act appeals to a wide variety of audiences. I perform Island Paradise Music, Classic Rock, Southern Rock, New and Old Country , 50's & 60's, Old and New Blues, Easy Listening Dinner / Wedding Standards, R&B and Dance Tunes. I can play as soft, pretty and mellow as you like or kick it up a notch or two depending on the audience.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you so we can discuss pricing, availability and which of my versatile styles best suits the particular tastes of your clientele or event.

James does a very good job of reading the audience and playing songs to get them going. He performed as he claimed with minimal set up and breakdown. His volume was perfect.
