What to expect if you book me:
Preparation: I will do my homework in addition to the details you give us for your event. My further education, research, and experiences continue to build and grow our resources, connections, and insight. Expect depth, encouragement, and a bit of humor with a conversational / relational delivery.
Flexibility: I will prepare to provide custom content to your specific event within our agreement and my wheelhouse. We will be happy to bring our band with the proper budget, or I would be happy to work with your house bands. We can also arrange custom instrumentation (2-3 band members like cello, keyboards, etc).
Simplicity: We have worked hard to simplify efforts. The agreements, fees, and rider arrangements are simple and customized to assist you.
Partnership: I consider any form of booking a partnership. Once events are confirmed, you can consider me on your team. I will promote on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as well as e-mail communications.
