Introduction: I've been playing guitar and singing since I was a teenager. Originally I was a drummer and a lead singer traveling all around the country playing in rock and roll bands. These days, I play acoustic guitar and sing as well as DJ! I have a set that features just me and my acoustic guitar with the addition of a drum machine on some songs. I sing a wide variety of songs from country, pop, rock, soul, and reggae as well as oldies. I also have a set I call 'Bringing in the Band", the bass, drums, lead guitar, back up vocals are all pre-recorded while I play rhythm guitar. I also do a set of songs with total recorded music. I have set, I call the Crooner Set where is sing songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, the Platters, Five Satins, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Lionel Richie, etc. At the same time, I also sing: Bruno Mars, Jason Aldean, Billy Joel, Tom Petty, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheehan, Sam Smith, Van Morrison, Gordon Lightfoot, and Bon Jovi. I have a great sense both as a musician and as a DJ to play the right music/songs for each occasion. I show up on time and have the right PA system to fit small to large venues. When DJ'ing I'll work with you on the song list. I have songs for any occasion. I've DJ'ed Disco Parties, New Year's Eve Parties, RV Club Parties, Halloween Parties, Saint Paddy's Day parties, Skateboard Contests showcasing heavy metal, punk rock, hard rock, etc! Basically, I'm pretty down to fit into any occasion! I take few breaks when performing as I enjoy singing and providing music for people so much. I live in Cherry Valley and moved there from Nothern California. I still play music gigs in the Tahoe, Sacramento, Grass Valley, and Santa Cruz. I also travel to Phoenix, AZ and each year and play the D'Vine Restrauant in Mesa and the Saint Amand in Chandler, AZ. Yes I'm older man, but because I've been around actions sports all my life such as skateboarding, surfing, skiing and snowboarding. I'm very familiar with all styles of music! I worked for ESPN and NBC producing the skateboarding and snowboarding events for the X Games and Dew Tour for over 15 years! I've played gigs for teenagers to adults to gigs in senior citizen communities. I live in a retirement community called Highland Springs Villiage and I DJ most of the events here as well as sing and play guitar. I also live next to the Highland Springs Farm and Inn where I've been a regular performer for the past 6 years. The Station Tap House in Banning is a local bar that I also perform regularly on Mellow Mondays! For the past couple of months, August and September 2020, I played music every Friday and Saturday evening at the American Road Trip Bar & Grill in Yucaipa. Since then, I’ve been playing private and birthday parties in homes. Due to Covid, I’ve had 5 weddings cancelled! I’ve had both vaccine shots and am good to provide great Intertainment. I have also started to offer Karaoke! Please my reviews here on Thumbtack, cheers!

Don was FANTASTIC! He was extremely communicative, detailed his music to our requests and just helped us have a happy day! Would definitely recommend him, and he made even a small gathering festive with his energy and self-written songs too.

Don was a great addition to our birthday party! He is so talented and you can tell that he thoroughly enjoys what he does. The wide range of music he can play is sure to appeal to every age group at any event. His communication before the party was beyond my expectations! I felt that he knew exactly what I wanted and I rested easy knowing the entertainment was taken care of. I don’t think he ever took a break either! The birthday song for my husband was so great! Thank you Don! I will definitely hire you again!

I highly recommend Don for your next party! I was looking for a singer for my sister's 50th birthday party and as soon as i reached out to Don he responded very promptly. I admit i was a little hesitant as this would be for a very small intimate group outdoors in Palm Desert and did not want to go over the top as i am known to go with my family. Well let me tell you Don was the perfect addition to this dinner party! Don sings an array of music and after the 2nd song at the dinner table my brother in law told me how great he was and he is definitely hiring him for his next party. Don's energy is just very positive and delightful. You can tell Don just loves to sing but moreso he enjoys making the event special by making it personal and tailoring to your group. He wrote a wonderful birthday song for my sister which we all enjoyed! My entire family loved him and asked how i was able to find him. I promise you will not be disappointed. He is just a very professional, prompt, pleasant gentleman. Whether you are having an intimate dinner party for 10 or an energy filled event for a party of 100 Don is your man! That night with my family was memorable as is but having Don's beautiful voice present in the "summer wind" in palm desert was definitely one for the books! I highly recommend Don!!
