THE LIVE JUKEBOX SHOW-Solo Edition.
I've been doing an Acoustic-Covers Show which consists of songs from the 70's up to songs released within the last year. This show is a covers show, but the running order is chosen by the audience. I pass several 3 ring binders around with song titles and artists names on "jukebox strips". The audience member simply writes their favorite songs with the letter and number on a lighted request board. Then I will play it in order of the requests. This is a lot of fun and gets the crowd involved. I can play 2-4 hour shows in this vein.
THE LIVE JUKEBOX "DUO SHOW"
Lou DiBello is an amazing legendary guitar slinger, and he adds a real dynamic to these Shows!
SINGER/SONGWRITER; ORIGINAL SHOWS:
I perform 100% original material at some shows . My latest record is called The Rearview Mirror Of The Soul and I have always got new songs in my back pocket too, as yet unrecorded.I can play up to 2 hour shows in this format!
The Live Jukebox Show in a band format! Lou DiBello on Guitar; Michael Hallihan on Bass and bvs; Chris Napier on the drums, and I'm singing and playing acoustic guitar! It's a trimmed down setlist to choose from (only 100 songs to start with). Corporate sponsors needing entertainment are going to LOVE this band!
KIDS MUSIC SHOWS
I perform kids music of various kinds. I've recorded 2 cds for The Champaign Public Library "Baby Boogie",and "What I Like". They've both been a hit for the toddler set. Baby Boogie even received a "Parents Choice Award"."What I Like" was featured in The Library Journal, a national resource for libraries worldwide! Playing for kids is a BLAST as you can well imagine, and I'm a bit of a kid at heart!
PARTIES AND FUNDRAISERS:
I've been known to play at a few neighborhood parties and fundraisers also! Having performed at "The Taste Of Champaign", "The Decatur Celebration", and various Park District events,I love festivals and support roles with national touring acts, as well as corporate events.
Due to popular demand, I am now available for wedding ceremonies also! This usually involves playing the happy couples' chosen songs and some light acoustic music.
Whether it's an Illini Tailgate, a Rotary gathering, a civic organizations annual meeting or any other type of gathering , The Live Jukebox Show has been immensely popular in this type of environment!
