There’s nothing I enjoy more than developing long-lasting relationships with great venues.  Here are some of the excellent places where I perform on a regular basis:

La Ristra New Mexican Kitchen – Gilbert & Chandler AZ

I’ve worked at La Ristra New Mexican Kitchen in Gilbert, AZ regularly since 2014, and at the new Chandler location since its opening in 2020. You can find me performing and hosting open mic nights at both locations, and the schedule will tighten up as the pandemic winds down.

Brooklyn V’s Pizza & Pasta – Gilbert, Chandler, and Queen Creek, AZ

Another client since 2014, I perform at Brooklyn V’s Pizza & Pasta (Gilbert location) every Second Saturday, from 6:30 to 9:30pm,and occasionally at the Chandler and Queen Creek locations.

The Wild Vine Uncorked – Chandler, AZ

An upscale wine and tapas bar, The Wild Vine Uncorked is my home every Third Friday from 7 to 10pm, as well as for various special events throughout the year.  Another long-term client, I’ve been playing at The Wild Vine Uncorked since 2014.

Wicked Six Bar & Grill – Fountain Hills, AZ

Wicked Six is an open-to-the-pubic bar & restaurant located at the scenic Sunridge Canyon Golf Club in Fountain Hills.  I perform here seasonally since 2016 (October thru November, and late January thru early May), on the First Saturday and Last Friday of each month.  Start time varies based on sunset, usually between 5 and 6pm.

Catching Flights Bar & Grille – Gilbert, AZ

Great food, fantastic drinks, and good ‘ol Arizona hospitality are always on-tap when you visit Catching Flights Bar & Grille. You’ll find me rockin’ the stage here on the 2nd Friday and 4th Saturday of each month, as well as hosting the weekly Open Mic Night every Wednesday.

Desert Belle Cruises – Saguaro Lake, AZ

The Desert Belle offers narrated tours, as well as various music cruises 7 days a week! Located on beautiful Saguaro Lake, the Desert Belle offers a very unique experience of cruising through the canyons on the water. I’ve been performing on the Desert Belle since 2016, and I never get tired of this incredible scenery that is only accessible by boat.

Wahoo’s Restaurant & Bar – Gold Canyon, AZ

Wahoo’s is a more recent client, but they’ve made it feel like home for me, just like they will for you! A great place with great food made with only the freshest ingredients, great service and a great place to spend time with family and friends – you’re only a stranger once at Wahoo’s!

Of course I also perform at many other Arizona bars, restaurants and venues.  Please check my calendar page to find when I’ll be entertaining near you!

Ian was outstanding and very professional. We hired him to play at a conference event for 300 people and he was exactly what we were looking for! His range of music was varied enough to appeal to all of the attendees. He was on time, dependable and very professional. We plan to have Ian back for future events.
