I do an acoustic set.

It’s an avant-garde free-form experimental musique concrète jazz set, which manly consist of my standing naked in a bucket of cold porridge, screaming the complete works of A L Rowse into the sound hole of a detuned acoustic bass, while beating myself over the head with a dead cod.

I can do you a set for $300

Interested?

I’m interested, but I would like to see a Youtube demo before hiring, to reassure me that it’s not just another derivative acoustic set.

Thanks for feedback everyone I looked up Chicago Charles but he is way too expensive 1600 for 6 hours. Of course I want someone talented, I like the sound of acoustic guitars as I find them more subtle to listen to than electric guitar or an overpowering band.

Email me at bfderef@yahoo.com.au – I may have what you need.

Have you tried going to places like Thursday night (Musos Night) at the potbelly or some of the other bars and clubs in Canberra, some of the bands and solo artists at these places are very talented and should be pretty approachable.

Hi Mickeyp, checkout the band Casual Sets. They had a stall at the Bridal Expo and I think the lead singer is an MC. They said they do acoustic covers too.

Try Chicago Charles.

Why specify “acoustic” rather than the style of music you want?

Do you like proper music or are you looking for the run of the mill talentless types that cover overplayed terrible songs poorly?
