ABOUT

Stop me if you've heard this before but I'm a singer/songwriter!

How novel! How unique!

I also play a boatload of cover material because I actually like the songs I play and you will too!

I like to go out and play, have fun, the audience has fun...ain't that what it's all about?

Anyway,

I'm looking to play your bar, restaurant, outdoor seating area, your barbeque and have also played living room concerts. If you've never had one, there's no time like the present to try one. They really bring people together.

I travel light and can bring all my own equipment if you don't have a PA system of your own.

A partial list of tunes I play is shown below. The list is "fluid" as they say in today's parlance.

I am open to auditioning for a spot for sure so if you would like me to come by and play a set, no strings, no problem. Just reach out.

MUSIC

CALENDAR

Will be doing a 50 minute set. It'll be nice to play in my old haunts again. It'll be a bang-up set, you can believe.

Another Friday night show at the Sawdust. Big place, lot's o' people.

Past Events

Quiet place where people go for dinner and conversation. Active bar with friendly locals. You can't not have a conversation with somebody around here.

The acoustics are great here. All the time I spend getting a good sound pays off.

7:30 to 10:30...ish. I usually play to 11:00 anyway.

That's a Friday night show at the most popular spot to play in town and you can't miss it since it's right on Main St by the entrance to Sturbridge Village (371 Main St to be exact). 8 to 11 PM. Coffee in the morning, full bar in the evening.

Back at the Midway in Dedham Circle. What can I say, they love me! Casual place, pull up a chair. That's what I do.

Right in Milford Center. I like it because it has a small bar area and it's like a house concert...but with a bartender.

That's right, it's a Thursday night. But everyone's out early with a good evening's entertainment under their belt.

Right in Dedham Circle. It's a nice sitdown type of local restaurant. Been there forever. Captive audience.
