Solo Singer-Guitarist for Parties
As a solo singer-guitarist, I play tunes from the 1970’s and 80’s, generally referred to as soft rock and yacht rock. Using backing tracks and vocal harmony pedals I deliver a variety of tunes and textures, and each session is customized to your needs.
I have been playing live music since I was 18 (that’s 35 years now). The thing I love the most is when people’s faces light up and they say “Oh, I LOVE that song!” I wanted to put together an act that was not as loud or complicated as a band, and that would allow me to play the tunes people love. Now, thanks to foot controlled effects like backing tracks and harmonizers, it’s possible for a solo act to sound a little bigger and to deliver a catchy package of tunes that include rhythm and wider vocals.
I love playing for people who remember and cherish the music of the 40’s, 50’s all the way through to today.
Of course, I treat each gig as a serious business engagement, meaning I will meet with you in person, by phone or by Skype to learn more about your needs and favourite tunes. I will then build an event around you. I show up prepared, ready and properly dressed, and will make sure that the performance reflects the theme of your evening.
Based in Toronto, I am available to play anywhere in the Greater Toronto area, including Niagara and Cottage Country.
Additional Booking Notes
I bring a small PA, microphones, a stool, three guitars with stands, my pedal board and some extension cables. All I need from you is a space about 6′ by 6′.
