He plays many guitars, harmonica, and fiddle and when you hear him you will think there is a whole band, not just one person. This is accomplished by what is known as looping.  There is never a ‘backing track’ to play along with, which is used by some other players out there. His vocals and music will reach the deepest part of you while it sets your senses alive. He plays sounds from the current popular, to classic rock, to Dave Matthews, to his own original compositions as he touches on just about any genre you may desire.

Firefall at the Freeman Stage @ Freeman Stage
7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The genealogy and musical roots of Firefall run deep in the fertile soil of American folk/rock music.  Along with contemporaries like Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Band, The Eagles and Loggins and Messina, they created a sound that defined a generation and forever changed the musical landscape.  Defying industry labels, they creatively melded country, folk, easy listening and rock ’n roll to create a sound that was uniquely their own.  Firefall is one of the few surviving bands of this genre, remaining true to the founding vision throughout the bands’ 30 year history.
 
From 1976 through the 1980’s, Firefall saturated the radio waves with a string of Top 20 hits, selling millions of albums and earning two platinum and three gold records for their efforts.  They toured the world over, sharing stages with supergroups like Fleetwood Mac, The Band, The Doobie Brothers, Marshall Tucker, The Beach Boys and America, to name a few. Their dynamic and dazzling live performances gained them a huge and loyal fan base; one that continues to grow even now.  In the current live shows, the band continues to expand on their distinctive and melodic sound. Their much loved hits are faithfully recreated with a freshness rare in live performance of such classics. In keeping with the times, the shows often include acoustic “mini sets” and extended jams, which speak directly to the ever growing new generation of fans.
