Simple Folk

           In the summer of 2003, in response to many requests for an “alternative folk-rock/Americana” option in live entertainment, I formed - along with partner & rhythm guitarist Jim Taylor - our Simple Folk band!  Comprised of the ‘four guys’ in Tuxedo Junction, Simple Folk is Jim on rhythm guitars & vocals, Dave de la Rosa on lead guitar, banjo & vocals, Joel Pressman on bass and me on percussion, harmonicas & vocals. 








         As you can see from the other promo shots on this page, the group has been through a couple of personnel changes where both ladies that worked with the group in the earlier years - Jeannie Nabor & our own Tuxedo Junction lead vocalist, Amy Rae - did stints with the guys.  Both left due to time constraints in their very busy personal lives and it became obvious when Amy had to narrow her annual commitments down to just Tuxedo Junction that our best course was simply (no pun intended!) to add Dave as our other guitarist, banjoist and third vocalist - it’s been this way for four years and our clients have loved the sound


         . . . we think you will too! 







         Simple Folk - like Tuxedo Junction - is available for and has played all the same types of engagements that TJ has played.  Simple Folk offers the same commitment to quality, versatility, fun & personable stage presence and great vocals that TJ presents.  We play a wide variety of vintage to contemporary folk, folk-rock, rockabilly and Americana that’s perfect for listening, dancing and singing along.  We’ve played for all ages and even have a show for children and for holiday season events.


         Go to our ‘selection sampler’ on the website and look for the starred selections . . . that will give you a good perspective of the kinds of music to expect from SF.  If this option might fit your event even better than TJ, let’s talk!  You can reach me at the same cell # and/or e-mail address on our “contact us” space.  Again, please know that for our many clients our reputation now precedes us . . . Simple Folk is great entertainment by four professionals with the experience to make your event a memorable one!
