  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$200 - $500 per event
Specializing in chord-melody solo guitar, vocal/guitar duos, jazz instrumental ensembles, rich-harmony classic rock and to round things off, a David Bowie Tribute Band. The pay range is for solo engagements.
Solo guitar : bossa, samba, tangos, jazz and pop standards. Classically trained, my first preference is a classical guitar but some rooms/events are better suited to a steel string guitar. I don't use any loop effects, pre-recorded track tech-tricks, every note is happening live as you hear it.
Jazz duos and ensembles: guitar/vocal jazz/swing duos and instrumental ensembles. Recently put together a one-gig Rat Pack band for a Rat Pack themed fundraising event.
Classic rock: I'm a member of Gigmasters Five Star rated "The Walrus " which performs music of The Beatles, Queen, Crosby Stills Nash Young and many others. Also a member of Gigmasters listed "Jasmine Greene Band" who genre hops from Nina Simone, The Stones, Imelda May, Adele, to Neko Case, and not lastly, "Scary Monster & The Super Creeps" David Bowie Tribute Band.
Please inquire about The Walrus and The Jasmine Greene Band thru their Gigmasters listing entries. Solo guitar, Jazz ensembles, or if you and your friends like David Bowie, inquire here.
Bonus, for Weddings, I can easily coordinate sound reinforcement/setup if I'm playing for a ceremony or background, and a band I play with performs for the reception/dance event.
Yes, I'm obsessed with music and thankfully I don't have a day job.
Thanks, Walt

Walt showed up early for the event and was accommodating to our set-up. He understood the vibe we were going for and set the tone for the entire event. We look forward to working with him again in the near future!
