I am a guitarist and a singer. I use backing tracks to play & sing over. These are not midi tracks, they sound like the original records with horns, strings, percussion, backing vocals as well as harmony guitar parts on some songs. In my song list I have songs that include songs by such diverse artists as Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Joe Satriani, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Eric Johnson, ZZ Top, Prince, The Allman Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Santana, Steve Vai, Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Deep Purple and many more. Styles include Rock, Fusion, Blues, Jazz, Big Band and Originals.
In "Rock Guitar Legends" I play songs by; Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, ZZ Top, Prince, The Allman Brothers, Santana, Steve Vai, Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Deep Purple and many more.
If someone came to see me they would see and hear very strong impassioned renditions of some of their favorite bands. When I perform I use my many years of experience to perceive what styles of music will work for that particular crowd. Whether it's dancing crowd or a listening crowd I have all styles to fit the event. I can present it with a roar or a whisper with the flick of a fader.
I use a wireless guitar system and a wireless microphone system so that I am able to walk through the audience and play for different tables.
