I studied music and got my degree at Fullerton College 8 years ago. Since then, I have played solo guitar and in several bands touring around the U.S. as well as locally. I enjoy many different styles of music. When I play solo guitar for private events, I usually cover the ranges of jazz, classical, arrangements of popular tunes, bossa nova and blues. I also have learned and arranged for solo guitar some of my client's favorite songs for an additional cost (ie. "In My Life" - Beatles). Some recent venues I have played at are: Hotel Laguna, South Coast Plaza, Queen Mary and Dove Canyon Country Club. I have published a book called "An Acoustic Christmas" by Hal Leonard and recorded an album going along with it.
Although the travel distance says 10 miles (that's the limit the site allows), I am willing to negotiate. You can find me on Yelp for reviews by some of my former and returning clients. I have a website, Dave Kurtz Music, that explains much more and has more samples of my playing.
