The following are some live examples of gigs I have been hired on and booked for as well as play in. 

Beth McCarthy Band (UK)


Swamp Heat – A five piece soul band featuring the one and only Soltre James on vocals. Chicago’s Swamp Heat proudly carries on the tradition and sound of New Orleans dance music into the 21st century. Known for their irresistible grooves and heartfelt ballads, the band sheds light on forgotten gems and continues to push the music forward with their own unique voice. 


Large Party Bands – Let me build a custom band for your event from the hundreds of professional musicians I know in the Chicago area. Acts could range from a solo acoustic/vocalist playing pop favorites to a 15 person big band playing Sinatra. The jazz trio or quartet is very popular if you are looking for a sophisticated group that can be background music or turn it up if people are feeling dancy. Rock group 4-6 pieces are common playing 50’s to modern hits. I strive to never have unhappy clients, always be timely, professional and above all else, have the best musical entertainment on the market. Prices and playing times will vary according to each specific event and group. Types of events/venues: Weddings, restaurants, hotel lobbies, house parties, corporate events, bars, festivals, music venues, concert halls, etc.  You name it, we will play it!
