Song Selection

Being a Christian, I don’t do the trashy songs. There is plenty to sing about… so many great songs, without going in that direction. Also, many of my venues are family-oriented, fine dining establishments. You won’t find yourself covering the kids ears or having to explain ‘what the man meant when he said’…

I realize that there are some people who want those type of songs and so I hope I am doing them a favor here on the front end.
