Living the Dream

I have been blessed to be able to do what I love as a full time career for as long as I can remember.  Please take some time to explore the music I make, both solo and with other artists.  I hope to see you at a show soon!

Dueling Piano Weddings 

Dueling Pianos at weddings have become a huge staple of my private party business.  Sometime I am subcontracted through national chains like Felix and Fingers or The Killer Dueling Pianos, and sometimes its direct through involvement with a wedding planner or local booking agency.  Either way, these events are becoming more and more popular with brides as the choice of entertainment for their special day.  I can provide music and sound for the ceremony as well as full production for the reception.  Oftentimes we add special pieces to the reception, including a drummer or another instrumentalist, but most popular is the emcee/cocktail singer option which adds a third singer to the mix who also works the dance floor, dining room, and keeps the event running smoothly and efficiently while providing added entertainment value.  We also include DJ services with our show to make sure you get every song and dance you want in the format desired.  If you are tired of seeing weddings with empty dance floors, people crunched into the corners as far from the band as they can, or if you are worried your event isn't going to be special, let me help make the difference you need to be worry free and have your guests talking about your special big day for years to come.  


A Simple Christmas is gaining some winter traction! 

"This will bring out the true spirit of Christmas for you."

"Just listened to all of it.  Absolutely beautiful. Very relaxing and peaceful."

"Fantastic piano music. This is my favorite 2017 Christmas CD.  Great gift idea for friends, neighbors, and family.  LOVE!"

The reviews are coming in!  Thank you to everyone who is listening!

A Simple Christmas is beginning to pick up some steam as we head towards the Christmas holiday!  Merch sales at live events has exceeded my expectations, make sure you stop by at intermission or after the shows to get an autographed copy!  We still have Christmas shows in Fredericksburg on Dec. 9,16,22,23,24,29,30,and 31!

Digital sales and streams are picking up with Spotify plays climbing over the 100 streams per day mark, Apple Music over 50 streams per day, and album sales on iTunes beginning to trend upwards.
