I am a professional level musician; I have made my living as a musician from time to time. I DO NOT PLAY FOR FREE! I play festivals, fairs, community events, clubs, weddings and parties. I am looking to build a back-up band so I can get booked into bigger, better paying venues. I have good marketing skills and I know I could get bookings for any type of group. I have played guitar since I was 9 years old. I can read music and tab, I know the Nashville Numbers system and I can play by ear. I can play any genre of music, but I prefer Classic Rock, Country, Americana and Bluegrass.
