Are you looking for solo guitar music to accompany a low-key get-together, a duo or small ensemble to add dimension to a party or special event, or a band for a high-energy, dance environment?

Please consider some musical offerings:

1. Solo guitar - standards jazz and different latin styles plus some classical guitar
2. Viola and guitar - classical, jazz, pop, latin, gospel, Klezmer with elements of other musical styles. If you're interested in a larger group, we also play with percussion, trumpet, saxophone, vocals, violinist, cello and bass. Please see Synergy's Gigmaster page.
3. Yamomanem, which does 2nd lines and the music of Louis Armstrong and Sidnet Bechet. (Yamomanem has a Gigmaster page)
4. I also play a variety of 3-4 piece groups. We play everything from standards jazz, latin jazz, salsa, bossa novas, rumba flamenco, funk, reggae, and pop.
5. Black Masala - a high-energy dance band. It's a mixture of Balkan brass, ska/rock and New Orleans. (Please see description below)

Looking for a great band for your party or event?

Black Masala puts on an amazing, high-energy live show that features brass, tuba, accordion, electric guitar, drums and vocals.

“Black Masala is a D.C. outfit that has found success riding off of its own inventiveness. Experimenting with a flirtatious combination of gypsy punkiness and brass, the band can expertly churn an audience of awkward head-bobbers into a livened stew of aspirant dancers. Their big-band sound seems able to adapt to any venue; readily filling out the cavernous space of the 9:30 while simultaneously fitting to match the intimacy of Tropicalia. For them, no groove is off limits.” – WRGW Music Blog

“Black Masala's live sets get the adrenaline pumping and the crowd dancing ... aggressively” – Scott Shigeoka (Washington Post)

“Black Masala seems to be name rolling off of everyone's tongue in the last year, and for a good reason: they deliver one of the most explosive performances you will see!” – D.C. Music Download

In the last 3 years since its inception, Black Masala have been hitting the road as well as playing frequently in the Washington, DC area. Winner of 4 Washington Area Music "WAMMY" Awards, including 'Best New Artist' has made the band a standout live act in the region.

Recommend

I highly recommend Duff and partner Roy as a prize performer for all occasion events. My guess and I found the selections passionately played, skillfully mastered, and adoring to the heart and soul. The range of music is eclectic yet thoughtful. You are best served if you allow them to play though the genres of their talents. Their demeanor were both accommodating and charming. I will always invite them to perform at future events.
