ABOUT

ABOUT ME:
Seasoned rock star moving to the area looking for a professional gigging band and/or session work. Covers or originals work by me!

I’ve been performing for about 10 years in bands and, previous to that, a cappella groups like in Pitch Perfect. My most recent projects in DC include a modern rock/pop band called Rescue Squad (www.RescueSquandBand.com) and my 80s Tribute band called The Reflex (www.ReflexLive.com) which has consistently won either Best Local Cover Band or Runner Up in DC for the past 5 years.

I’ve got exceptionally high energy on stage. I’m a great singer, but what makes me unique is my ability to give a crowd a personal experience, even if it’s a crowd of 3000 people. I memorize everything, so iPad for me.

I’ve performed in front of (and with) celebrities, members of Congress, festivals, every casino in the DC area… in other words, I love to perform and have done so A LOT on the east coast.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
Looking for a band to join when I get to Chicago that is performing out already. I don’t mind helping make something good and turn it into something great, but I’d prefer not to start from the ground up. Willing also to sub if you have a need and don’t want to cancel a gig.

OTHER STUFF:
I’m a singer who actually helps with set up and tear down. I also ran marketing for The Reflex boosting FB likes from 6000 people to over 16000.
