I am available to perform at churches, colleges, or events in the Southeastern Michigan/Northwestern Ohio area. I am a solo act and I perform with many different instruments (such as guitar, vocals, congas, bongos, djembe, mbira, keyboard, and shakers). I often perform to help raise money for philanthropic causes.
My solo shows generally run 1.5 – 2 hours. I play both cover songs and originals, both Christian and secular music. My covers include such bands as the Beatles, Bob Marley, U2, Pink Floyd, and the Rolling Stones. (Fair warning: Christians who are easily offended, particularly by secular music, would be advised to find someone else to perform).
I also like to have a short audience-driven drum circle, if it has been advertised for people to bring drums.
Additionally, during my shows I often give a short talk–15 to 20 minutes in length. The talks could be classified as inspirational, motivational, spiritual, academic, and a little philosophical. They often contain Christian elements, but I never try to be preachy. As a rule, I do my best to speak to each audience according to the situation.
Feel free to drop me a line on the contact page if your organization is interested in booking a show. Fees for shows vary from $0 to $1,000,000, depending on the organization and/or the philanthropic cause.
