Michael James Simons - Solo Guitarist-vocalist Resume

      Currently employed with an upmarket cruise line as solo guitarist-vocalist.
I love performing and playing songs from artists including: The Beatles, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, Gordon Lightfoot, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Elton John, The BeeGees, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Sting, CSN, CCR, Bread, Simon & Garfunkel and many more!
I'm looking for opportunities where I can perform the music I love to an enthusiastic audience.
My current employer, is an upmarket cruise line, where I have held my position for more than 5 years. I consistently receive favourable comments & reviews from guests and when the company had a ranking system, I was rated no 1 in the fleet for my position.

I consider myself versatile in the styles of music I cover. Prior to my current position, I was part of a 3 piece rock band in South Africa who performed for more than 9 years at various places in South Africa. In addition to this, I taught acoustic & electric guitar both privately & once weekly at a school in my area.
I'm looking for gigs where contracts may be shorter in length than my current contracts.
Am willing & able to relocate.
