Oceanside born and raised, I usually perform as a solo artist, though an excellent lead guitarist is available if it fits the budget. I play guitar and ukulele. I'm usually booked so perform my originals, but I do have an extensive list of covers. My style of music has been called folk/jazz, island/folk, and folk/rock. Regardless, I'm pretty laid-back, but I can play some up-tempo stuff - though that phrase is relative. I have a number of recordings which can be heard her on the Gig Town app, on iTunes, and on my own website. I do have my own Bose Compact sound system. www.robmehl.com / firstname.lastname@example.org
