    I am a professional singer and keyboardist. I can provide a full band if needed and can also be available as a lead vocalist, back-up singer or keyboardist. I have plenty of experience in the industry as I am a full time musician and also teach for a living. I was working with a very busy wedding band for the last year and a half, filling in for their keyboard player/vocalist who was on a personal leave so am now looking for new opportunities to fill my calendar for 2018 and beyond. 🙂
