ABOUT MY MUSIC -- I have a wide repertoire of standards, pop songs, and jazz tunes, and can tailor my song selection to a variety of different events. If background music is needed for dining or cocktail parties, I can stay with instrumental guitar tunes, and some light vocals, featuring mainly old standards and jazz. For more upbeat events, I add in more pop tunes and vocals, and bring in my "magic harmony box" to add in extra vocal parts on many songs.

WEDDINGS -- In addition to my list of traditional and popular wedding songs, I am always glad to add songs to my wedding repertoire that are requested by the bride and groom. I can provide all of the musical needs for your special event, including background music at the reception dinner, and pre-service music and solos for the ceremony.

HOLIDAY PARTIES -- When the holiday season rolls around, I brush up on the songs of the season (secular and/or religious, depending on the occasion), and enjoy entertaining at Christmas parties, where singing along is strongly encouraged.

ABOUT MYSELF -- I have had a varied musical career over the past 40 years. After receiving my Bachelor of Music Education degree with an emphasis in guitar, I spent several years teaching public school music and private lessons. I then moved into the corporate world for my primary bread-winning efforts, but stayed very involved in music, playing in a variety of jazz, rock, and country bands, singing in church and community choral groups, and solo performances for weddings and special occasions. But the most exciting news: I have recently retired from my "day job" and looking forward to playing LOTS more music!

WHERE TO HEAR ME -- If you are in the Sacramento area, there are plenty of opportunities to hear me play in person, as I have quite a few performances at various area Farmers' Markets. Check my calendar to see when I will be playing near you.

Bill arrived early for his set-up and sound check. He provided ipod tunes prior to his scheduled set time which was an added bonus. He played on schedule and was very accommodating for our club event speakers and raffle prize drawing which interrupted his performance, but he was gracious during the club events and picked-up right where he left off with his lovely music. I have already referred Bill to my neighbor Sharon Durst's for a private party in August!

Bill was prompt and thorough in all if his communication with us.he paid close attention to song choice and dress code which I thought was very nice. Finally, he played beautifully and made my ceremony and cocktail reception full of wonderful music. I'd hire him again for an event and would absolutely recommend his services. Oh and his prices are so reasonable! Don't pass him up!
