Customers rated this pro highly for value, work quality, and professionalism.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am professional and I only play with other professionals. Therefore my pricing may be higher than others, but it will be worth it. Also if your budget doesn't allow for a full 5 or 6 person band, consider a duo version of the group.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to get a feel for what the client envisions their event looking and sounding like. Then I want to know the budget to help determine how many musicians should be involved with this event. I want to know if it is inside, outside, do I provide sound, what time of day it is, and how long do you want me to play? We then put in writing what the client expects of me and what I expect from the client. Finally we have a good time together at the event and everyone ends up happy in the end.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been playing mandolin since I was 6 yrs old. I've won various mandolin, guitar, and bluegrass band competitions. I record and work with bluegrass legends such as Mark Schatz (bassist for Nickel Creek, Tony Rice and more), Sammy Shelor ( IBMA and Steve Martin banjo award winner), and will live up to that kind of professionalism. I also have a BA in Music Performance.
