We hired Patrick to perform on our yacht two years in a row for a family and friends get together and dock party. Patrick does an excellent job entertaining a crowd. Not only is he a great musician but very pleasant to be around. Everybody at our party was very complimentary of Patrick and his music. He has a great playlist with a combination of music for different generations. We plan to hire him back again for our next party. Strongly recommend hiring Patrick for any music engagement.Mar 7, 2020
My (now) wife and I hired Patrick to play at our welcome dinner the night before our wedding. He showed up early. His song choice was spot on with what we requested. He sounded great and we had several guests comment during, after, and since the performance about how much they enjoyed his music. Patrick was also very personable to interact with. Highly recommended!!Mar 16, 2020
Patrick was Awesome!! We have invited him back to our annual Christmas party for 4 years in a row and plan to invite him back each and every year. We highly recommend him as your party entertainment. He is easy going, punctual, friendly and a pleasure to work with. He truly is the BEST live acoustic musician that Tampa Bay has to offer.Mar 8, 2020Patrick Tillman Music's reply
Thanks so much for the repeat business TJ!!
Patrick was really great at our party! I was very impressed with his professionalism when deciding the details and dealing with the guests at our party. His music was the perfect blend of favorite rock tunes beautifully played on an acoustic guitar. Volume, tempo, and song choices were just right for the different stages of the party, and everyone complimented the music as they were leaving. No complaints here whatsoever!Mar 6, 2020
WOW- what a night!!!! Planning my wife's 40th Birthday was not an easy task for me to take on and let's just say, I waited to the last minute to put to together. My wife specified that all she wanted was “an acoustic guitar player" Found Patrick online and after listening to his songs, I knew this was the guy to 'make the party!' Patrick, made it way to easy for me. He set up early, was professional & played the entire night, a very chilly night may I add. Great music, amazing vocals, my wife was thrillled and if she's happy, we're all happy!Mar 5, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My minimum for a solo performance 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.
