Introduction: I am a professional singer and guitarist. I also play harmonica, ukulele, and perform to pre-recorded tracks for a one-man-band sound (mostly beach & reggae music). When I play acoustic guitar I use a vocal harmonizer & looper pedal for a sound that's much bigger than one person. I perform for restaurants, clubs, parties, wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, corporate events, and anywhere else that live music would add to the event. There is more information, audio, video, a song list, etc. on my website.

Steve was great! He is an excellent musician. He showed up on time and was easy going (when we had him set up in one location and then changed our mind). The variety of music was excellent. He made my 50th Birthday Party a success. Several of my friends got his card and want to hire him in the future.

Steve performed at a Jimmy Buffet Poolside Event with 200 guests. Song assortment, sound, and his performance were all excellent. Highly recommend if you want a performer who responds quickly, follows through, is punctual, professional and a very good performer!

FAQs

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

    I list my fee as $125/hr because Thumbtack requires I give an hourly fee. But that's not really how I charge. For musicians - unlike say, plumbers - there is a lot of demand on some days compared to others. Weekend nights are big for entertainment. I charge more for Saturday nights (so do all other musicians). Mondays, not so much. Also, most of the work for me is getting to the place where I'll perform, setting up to play, tearing down afterwards, and going home. The rest is fun! Even if I'm only going to play for 15 minutes, I still have to do the work I'd have to do if I played 4 hours. So the length of time I play matters, but not as much as you'd think. My fees usually start at $400.
