“I love my job passionately and offer a unique, caring and professional experience for every couple, corporate event planner or private party host. With over 1000 weddings and 100's of corporate events to my credit, I always enjoy making people happy through music - especially on the most special day of their lives. Whether I'm performing my guitar during a bride’s processional down the aisle, singing cover songs during your cocktail hour/dinner, or keeping the dance floor packed while DJing, it is a thrill for me. By giving you personalized attention on your journey toward the big day, I provide pre-planning service larger companies cannot. During planning stages, I will carefully work with you to help create a detailed custom timeline/music program of your liking. I invite you to come hear me live as I usually play several times a month at O’Neill’s Bar & Grill in Mission Viejo or simply schedule a meeting to learn more.”
