Introduction: Hey we all can't be Young, Beautiful and Talented so if Experienced, Mature and Entertaining is more to your liking, I may just be your guy! I play a VARIETY of music genres to include Motown, Country, R&B, Rock and Pop. Classics to Current! Artists like Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton, The Temptations, Jimmy Buffett, Marvin Gaye, and many more. My equipment provides me with a very big sound and is a great alternative to hiring a full band. I handle all the vocals and guitar work while my systems provide the harmonies and additional instrumentation. I love performing live to a great audience. Most people love the music I play and it is really fun to see them react to the music. Please check out my demo videos and contact me directly for bookings. Looking forward to playing for you soon!

JP performed at home for New Years! We have an amazing time. JP knew how to tailor his music to the audience. I would highly recommend and plan to use him again in the future.

JP was AWESOME! He showed up on time, ready to get to work! He was excellent in reading the crowd and playing music to suit the mood. We really enjoyed the life he brought to our event, a surprise 40th birthday party. I would not hesitate to hire JP again or recommend him to others looking for live entertainment for their events. HIRE HIM! You won't regret it :-)

Great time with J.P.! He played a nice mix of music, took requests and added his own color on the music he was playing. He was also very flexible on start time too. We will definitely use him again. Great job P.J. And thanks for kicking off our holiday weekend!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I typically work with customers who have a budget of $300-$600 for a Solo Musician. Several factors come into play that can result in the variance. I will be happy to discuss those with any interested client. For instance if you are an Venue manager that hires musicians on a recurring basis it may be possible for me to work with a lower budget. Please contact me directly to discuss.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I encourage the customer to check out my online profile and reviews. Once they are satisfied that I am a good fit I require a small deposit to hold the date. The balance would then be due the date of the event. If the customer has specific tunes they would like to hear I will work to add those to the lineup given enough time to make them sound good. I will go the extra mile to see that they are happy with my services.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have over 40 years experience, playing, writing, and singing music. It is my passion.
