|Am i the right acoustic entertainment for your venue / event?
Well... maybe - keep reading!
* I'm not the guy who
gets all serious doing songs about my girlfriend, my feelings, a
butterfly or whatever. I think i just lack the sensitivity for it.
> I do play some slower/prettier material, but i limit it to no
more than 3 songs or less per set because you can't tap your feet to
* I don't do medleys (Beatles or otherwise) and i definitely
stay away from the typical acoustic guitar standards like Blackbird,
Margaritaville, Alison, etc. In fact i don't limit
myself to so-called "acoustic songs" at all.
> My sets are classic rock-based and i break things up by adding
songs that are more modern, plus some original material. I do some
soloing and slide guitar work throughout the sets, which is alot more
fun & dynamic than just playing straight tunes.
> I don't use drum machines, looper pedals or pre-recorded
background music. I'm just a guy who sits there banging it out on
an acoustic guitar with a yellow pick and a brass slide.
* I'm a very light drinker (if at all) while working; i don't
curse at family-oriented events; i don't take myself too seriously; i don't (often) tell bad
jokes; and i've never had a jealous girlfriend show up and get
all rowdy at one of my acoustic shows [knock on wood].
> I keep my opinions to myself while performing. People are
there to laugh and have a good time enjoying their food & drinks; not to
hear somebody's political views or whatever!
* Oakland, Macomb,
Lapeer, St. Clair and Wayne counties
* Available noon, evening and night
* Pro equipment including PA (about 30 min
to set up; 20 to tear down & clear out)
* I'm as loud or quiet as the gig requires or that the owner/manager

as 3 60-minute sets
