As an entertainer and recording artist, I offer the finest in diverse music to help people have a really good time. I partner with a number of reputable musicians to make every occasion truly memorable. Although I specialize in Spanish and Flamenco guitar, I enjoy playing a variety of music -- anything from Beethoven to The Beatles -- as long as the crowd is having fun. I have a diverse playlist that can be customized for corporate events, weddings, dinners, cocktail hours, concerts, birthday/anniversary celebrations and other events.
I have played music all over the world for a wide range of audiences, including dignitaries such as the King and Queen of Spain. I appear regularly at venues across Northeast Florida (Jacksonville area) and currently call St. Augustine home. I am enchanted by St. Augustine's Spanish connection, which provides inspiration for my Spanish-style guitar. I appear frequently at the Oak Room Restaurant & Lounge in the DoubleTree by Hilton and the Casa Monica Hotel on Sundays for brunch from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. as I stroll through the dining room while playing acoustic guitar, and take your requests.
Some of the genres and styles I play include:
- Baroque and Renaissance
- Classic Rock
- Mexican Mariachi
- Spanish and Flamenco
