What Services Can I Provide?
Take Four Jazz
Subs, Studio, & Accompaniment

I can meet practically all of your guitar-related musical needs. I've played professionally in all settings: from clubs and studios to orchestra pits, from enormous festival events to the Cathedral in Syracuse.

It's likely that I know your setlist, and
I CAN read your guitar charts.

I've been the guitarist in the orchestra pits
 for the musicals
Rent, Mamma Mia, Pippin,
Grease, Anything Goes, Damn Yankees,
Cabaret, The Wiz, Footloose,
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,
Bye Bye Birdie, Disaster! The Musical!,
Bring it On 
and 13: The Musical.

I am also the pit guitarist for the
Syracuse High School Theater Awards
 and a regular accompanist at the
 Syracuse Acoustic Blues Festival.


I've performed with: Nancy Kelly and the Jazzuits, Ronnie Leigh, Soul Mine, Entourage, Tom Witkowski, the Fredonia Jazz Ensemble, Joanna Collins, Street Corner, Entourage, Brass Exchange, and many others...

...often on short notice.
When the gig counts, I'm the guitar player you want standing behind you. Why not give me a call?


Presently, I am the leader of the the contemporary jazz quartet Take Four Jazz,  and the staff guitarist at Bristol Hills Music Camp, All Saints Catholic Church in Syracuse, and Holy Family Catholic Church in Fairmount.

Corporate Events

Lite guitar-jazz provides just the right level of sophistication for your next formal event, reception, or cocktail hour. I provide the volume-controlled excitement of live music without the bulk, burden, or expense of a live pianist - but if you'd like a pianist (or more: Take Four Jazz) let me know!

Weddings
Make your wedding uniquely yours by featuring the guitar! I can provide light music prior to the ceremony. I can present alternatives to the standard processional, featuring formal selections such as "Pachelbel's Canon."
Additionally, I can provide a vocalist and/or prepare accompaniment for friends or family members who may sing as part of the ceremony. Truly a one-of-a-kind ceremony!


Receptions
As with other formal events, solo guitar playing can be the perfect backdrop for your wedding reception.
