His repertoire runs the gamut of great artists from Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan to Cat Stevens, Paul Simon and Billy Joel to The Beatles, Stones and U2 to the Zac Brown Band, Johnny Cash and Kenny Chesney to Dave Mathews, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam, to Weezer, Matchbox Twenty and Nickelback — and everything in between.
