About The Show

I have spent 20 years performing original and cover music in various clubs and special events throughout the mid-west US as both a solo musicain and as band member of Wisconsin Dells & Colorado based bands The Swing Crew and Dogsled

The years have seen several different incarnations from percussionist, bassist, guitar player, supporting and lead musician. Primary instruments have remained voice and acoustic guitar.

The current version of the show is a solo acoustic performance which features both original music and remakes of many great songs. Remakes are personal favorites and include those requested by you over the years.

My sets are built around pop, eclectic classics and obscure artists. My guitar playing style combines elements of rock, jazz, blues, classical and funk. My show has been classified by certain venues as a cross between Dave Matthews and Keller Williams.

Below I have include a partial list of artists that I cover and a few of the 100+ venues I have had the opportunity to work with.
