Set List

My set varies from show to show depending on my DJ (see below), the venue, set-up, equipment, crowd, mood, etc.. My current sets include a mix of new material (Fat Gold Chains, With A Little Help, Lonestar Fleet), old (Who Is That?) & some un-released songs.
I am ready, willing & able to perform any set time-length (short; 10-15 mins. or, long; 20 mins. or more...), depending on what is required or expected.
A DJ is always present at my live performances and if any of my featured collaborators are available, I like to include their cameos into the set. I perform with several different quality DJs at my live sets-DJ EZ Eddie D (89.3FM), DJ Centrifik (Boomset/DK), DJ Viz (BrownSugar/A-Teem), DJ Suspence (ILL-Format) to name a few.
I always involve the audience as much as possible with crowd-participation, call & response, contests/raffles/giveaways, etc...
