Thanks for stopping by! I’m excited to share our many musical options with you.  Music has been my constant companion through life, but playing in the hospital for UF Health/Shands Arts in Medicine for 25 years has brought my appreciation and understanding of it to a much deeper level.

Because I believe that music does have an amazing impact on our lives through emotion, memory, joy, and celebration, I love to play for weddings, parties, concerts and special events, even memorials and tributes. Besides my solo piano option, our eclectic bands can provide the music that’s best suited to your occasion and venue. Whether it’s sophisticated, romantic vintage songs from the American songbook; the swingin’ sounds of big band horns and jazz; classic rock and rhythm & blues; or acoustic folk with an old-time Florida feel, we’ve got the perfect musical backdrop to add just the right element of class and fun. And our musical icon tribute concerts are a great hit with sold-out audiences every time!

Please visit the links above to see and hear new recordings, discover some of our tribute shows, meet a few of our musicians, and find out how to book the right band for your upcoming event. Our options range from solo piano, harp, or guitar to MoonDancer (jazz, swing pop,  dance, and R&B), Trio Fantastique (classical and  New Age), and Patchwork (folk, bluegrass, and swing), as well as specialty shows like Tapestry Rewoven, Woodstock Revisited, and Both Sides Now: Celebrating the Music of Joni Mitchell.

We look forward to playing for you!

MoonDancer
