Instruments played:
Strong vocals and acoustic Guitar

Tracks: No

Acoustic gig: Yes

Sound equipment:
I have a small powered speaker and a small 4 channel mixer that pretty much covers me for smaller gigs (plenty of sound) and are easy to carry around. Bigger gigs tend to have their own PA systems in place!

Lighting equipment:
No, I try to blend in with the Bar and the people drinking in it! I am quiet suttle but build up to a great athmosphere when the crowed are up for it! Lighting can be arranged if need be

Break/Interval music: No
