Billy Joe was very kind and professional. I was able to work everything on the internet. Everyone enjoyed the varied music he played and overall had a great time. Debbie
RECENT RELOCATION TO TUCSON, AZ!!
If you are looking for a band (trio, quartet, or quintet):
I can fit my band to your needs, whether small medium or large, soft jazz, hard rock, country, bluegrass, etc. My fellow musicians and I are professionals and have been working in the club circuit, private venues, weddings, parties, Mardi Gras, cruise ships, and stadiums for many years. If you have a particularly favorite song you want to hear, we can play it. If we don't already know it, we will get the material and learn it before the gig.
If you are looking for a soloist or duet:
I can play a solo gig on guitar/harmonica/vocals or pair up with a second male vocalist/guitarist, female vocalist, cellist, or keyboardist. I can do private parties or promotional events for adults and/or children.
If you are a band or studio looking for a musician:
I can fill-in on a gig. I already know hundreds of songs and can learn new ones quickly. I have a great ear and read music, chord charts, and Nashville numbering. Lead guitar is my primary instrument. I also play bass guitar, acoustic guitar, lap steel guitar, banjo, harmonica, tenor saxophone, and drums. With my guitar-synthesizer I can also play keyboards, organs, and 100's of other intstrument tones. With the push of a button, I can pitch-shift with my guitar, so if you play something in a different key, that's not a problem.
You can pay securely through the Gigmasters credit card system (preferred) or through Paypal. Other payment arrangements can be made if needed. I require a deposit up front to lock in my musicians for the date you request (so they don't take another gig elsewhere). Plus it guarantees you that we will be there for your event. Also, we have pre-gig equipment and rehearsal expenses. Your event is just as important to us as it is to you, so we will be there, set-up, and start on on time, giving you the best entertainment without any worries. We take care of all your musical needs seemlessly. Please be aware that certain dates are prime ones for weddings, etc. Planning ahead and decisively is a good idea. After I send you a bid, once you pay the deposit, we are locked in as your band. I advise not waiting long because someone else may want that date and grab it first. As an added bonus, I can record a live audio cd so you can reminisce about your event and the killer band (us) you hired!!
My band and I are professional grade and truely love to play music and entertain people.I repeatedly have been hired through Gigmasters and performed for numerous customers in various venues. Check my past performances and REAL FEEDBACK.
Sometimes audio loads via computer links are slow. Not to mention, computer speakers don't always sound as good as the ones on your home or car stereo. So if you want me to mail you a free audio demo cd, be sure to contact me for a bid and give me a mailing address.
Thanks for reviewing my presskit!!
