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:
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.
Another client since 2014, I perform at Brooklyn V’s Pizza & Pasta (Gilbert location) every Second Saturday, from 6 to 9pm, and occasionally at the Chandler and Queen Creek locations.
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 is an open-to-the-public 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.
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.
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 lake, and its scenery that is only accessible by boat.
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!
Flights Wine & Taproom is my newest regular venue, located adjacent to Falcon Field Airport in Mesa, AZ. As the name implies, Flights is a wine & beer bar with an ever-changing lineup of available beverages, both local and worldwide. I perform at Flights on the first Thursday of each month, from 6 to 9pm.
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!
Normally, this space would have my reviews from Thumbtack.com. However the change in Thumbtack’s business model has forced me to delete my account, thus making my reviews inaccessible.
Thumbtack.com used to be a valuable resource for booking private events such as weddings, etc. I only paid a fee when I decided to bid on an available job, and each bid only cost a few dollars. Thumbtack.com decided to charge exorbitant fees for only communicating with a potential customer; charging up to $75 just to send you an email (to which you may not even respond), and now charges just to show me “leads” that I might be interested in. Just one lead can cost me literally hundreds of dollars, and it might not even fit in my current calendar.
After lodging my complaints with Thumbtack.com, I deleted my account and have no desire – nor need – to do business with this company.
I had many 5-star reviews on Thumbtack.com. Consider this is my zero-star review of them.
