Biography

My name is Franklin and I would like to take a moment to tell you something about myself and also how I can help you to provide quality musical entertainment for your party, event or venue - as a solo performer, with a duo or with a complete band.

I have been siniging and playing guitar for 11 years at venues and events throughout the Midwest Region - Most recently at the Oak Street Beachstro in Chicago and currently at Cabana Charley's in Sycamore and The City Club in Naperville. I also regularly perform at a wide variety of venues and events in the Naperville, Barrington and also the wider Chicago Metro and Suburban areas. These include local lounges, special corporate and school events, weddings of 20 or more and also private parties.

The selections that I am available to perform range from quiet dinner music to the upbeat tempos requested at festivals and special events. My repertoire includes easy listening, blues, ballads, rhythm & blues and classic rock. A song list is available upon request to better help tailor my performance to your event or venue format. I welcome the opportunity to work with you to craft a performance and selection of music that will suit your individual needs and also leave room for audience requests, with the goal of increasing your nightly draw. My objective is to increase your bottom line by building an intimate rapport with your core customer base, thereby maximizing your potential for repeat visits.

I am currently available for 2008 - 2009 bookings at supper clubs, night clubs, summer festivals, corporate and school events (high school/college), weddings and private parties.
