Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
MY MINIMUM FEE is $450. If that is within your budget, I would be happy to put together a quote for live music at your event.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I speak with the client to better understand their vision for the event and what part live music will play. I am also willing to make suggestions since I have done hundreds of private events and know what has worked well in the past. Once the client decides to book, I will email a contract to be signed by both parties and get all the details in writing. A $100 deposit will be collected to secure the date on my calendar. Then I will reach out a week in advance to make sure there were no last minute changes.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I began playing the ukulele when I was 9 years old. I really enjoyed singing and playing an instrument. My parents seeing that I enjoyed playing music and showed natural ability, bought me a Yamaha Jr. guitar 3 years later. I taught myself how to play the guitar and I picked out songs by ear. Over the years I have developed my own sound and picking patterns. In my mid 20's I began to build a book of cover songs that I could play well and worked with my vocal range. It was my wife and friends who had heard me play that encouraged me to gig out professionally. Finally, after their continued prompting I booked my first gig at a popular local waterfront restaurant. The crowd response was great based on the the amount of tips I got and I was hooked!! I have been performing live music ever since.
