I perform solo or with one of many combos.

I also have a special show on the music of New Orleans. See details here: New Orleans Presentation.

Just a few of the venues I perform include: weddings, special events, house parties, commercial venues, wineries and breweries, restaurants/bars, conventions.

Please visit the contact page and specify which configuration (solo or group) you are interested in booking.

Travel fees may apply if outside of the Charlottesville region or if I am required to bring sound reinforcement/P.A./lighting/etc.
