Q. Why should an event professional book you?
A. My presentation is unique, including percussion backup and loop machine, which gives me more of a band feel. I have been told that my voice is my best instrument, and that I play people’s favorite songs! I have a wide variety of songs from most every genre and style, because I grew up listening to all styles of pop music – blues, soul, classic rock/country/psychedelic rock, New Wave, etc. Because of my vast knowledge of music, I enjoy focusing on deep cuts, B-sides, and songs that other musicians don’t cover often. My entire repertoire consists of around 700 songs, so I have enough material to play for days without repeating! Also, that means that I have something for everyone (within my style range)! I encourage people to read my Song List and customize their event!
