A. Make sure that the musician you hire has a wide selection of music from mellow, middle of the road, and Rock N' Roll because just one constant style will not please all.

A. I have an extremely wide variety of music that I perform featuring Classic Rock Favorites that most other musicians will not even attempt to perform live like Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, U2 and lots of others.

Whether I'm playing in London England, Moscow Russia or right here in the USA, music is truly a universal language that's shared and enjoyed by people of all walks of life, in all parts of the world.
