Presenting a unique & affordable live entertainment option for your cocktail hour, wedding ceremony, party, catered event, restaurant or public venue. My backing tracks are composed with live instrumentation, as opposed to synthesized karaoke tracks. I utilize a PA system that provides audiophile sound quality, with a small footprint and a high degree of volume control. My repertoire is continually growing, and currently consists of over 300 songs. My set lists are designed to enhance the atmosphere and create good vibes. With over 30 years of professional performing experience, I have the knowledge to select music appropriate for any audience or venue. Styles include: Jazz Standards • Smooth Jazz • Pop • Rock • RnB • Oldies • Ethnic & Classical - ALSO AVAILABLE: SOLO MUSICIAN + DJ SERVICES (The best of both worlds) - I can provide the additional service of spinning tunes in conjunction with, or following my live performance. My approach to DJing is elegant and low-key. I play great dance music that's appropriate for the audience. I will also keep the volume levels exciting but comfortable, and refrain from continual over the top DJ banter. Please check out my website for more information about my background, and to hear examples of my music.
