He plays his  own blues not covers . He uses backing tracks for the performance.

Suzen Juel
Suzen JueL,  is a self taught musician who has been performing since she was 13 years old.  She has perfected the weaving of her mind’s eye and heart’s passion into lyrical paintings richly embedded with emotional hues from her personal experiences. Her lyrics feed the listener’s soul and stirs the heart and sentiment of any who have been privileged to hear her perform them. Suzen Juel does a wide variety of both covers and originals. Her style and sound have been compared, both lyrically and vocally, to such legendary greats as Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Sue Foley, LeonardCohen, Janis Joplin, Mazzy Star, Kurt Cobain as well as a generous handful of other talent.

Ricky DeNarro

Funky Freddy
FunkyFreddy brings a very unique sound to Second Life and performs 100% live,  no tracks! In a typical show he will use up to 6 different guitars and weave a dazzling web of ambiance, using a variety of effects and loopers. Within the same hour Freddy can go from acoustic soft folk ballads to heavy rock psychedelia. He also plays new age, blues, funk, country, Americana and nearly everything in between. He does this all with a sense of humor and wants his audiences to have as much fun as he does!

Jacq Luik
Jacqueline Luik, one of the premier entertainers in SL, is originally from Dallas, Texas.  She has been performing most of her life with her first public engagement at 7 years old.  Jacqueline holds a semi-professional background in music through vocal training, songwriting and several contest wins.  Back in Texas, Jacq was lead vocals in a band traveling to different dance halls.  Through the years as a lead vocal, contest wins which took her to Nashville and a true love of performing in front larger audiences, Jacq hopes you leave her show feeling you’ve been entertained at a professional level.  Although Jacqueline’s roots are straight from Texas in country and gospel, she has widened her genre and now sings her heart out to jazz, ballads and pop.

Cryptic Harmony

Cryptic Harmony is a friendly, sassy, Canadian female.  She was born in 1989, but don’t let her age fool you; this girl is wise beyond her years.  Growing up in a religious household she was heavily involved in her church choir from age 10.  During her time in choir she was heavily criticized for her vocals and vowed never to sing again.  She quit singing altogether for 6 years. In 2012, she was rushed to the hospital for emergency brain surgery! She was told she might never see or talk again, or worse, lose all memories.  It was during her recovery that she found a new lease on life and began to sing again.  She throws passion and soul into all her performances.  Her main goal is to touch people’s emotions through singing and to have a positive impact on those around her.

Bella
Bella has the voice of an angel! She is truly an amazing musician who will blow you away with her angelic voice and harmonic guitar playing! She plays a variety of tunes and hits which some may surprise you!  Many of her influences range from Classical to Heavy Metal and especially from the late 70’s to 90’s
