Live Music
Even the best equipment and song files cannot duplicate the atmosphere
created by a live musician. Event planners have hired me to provide live

Private Party Entertainment
Many of my bookings are to provide live musical entertainment for private

Musical Entertainment for Clubs and Restaurants                              
Businesses such as clubs, restaurants, coffee shops, ski lodges and cruise
ships often book live music as entertainment for their guests. Sometimes
this is background music intended to create a pleasant ambiance. Other
times the music may be a special feature resembling a small, informal

Following are partial lists of corporate clients and venues in New
England where event planners have hired me to perform. Individuals who
have booked me to perform at private functions are not listed.
