Bruce Music is acoustic jam rock with blues, jazz, funk, and reggae grooves! While performing I create live musical loops building captivating sonic layers to which I improvise with my guitars and vocals. Improvising and creating new music live is what music is all about to me. So I "go for it"performing, ensuring a new and magical musical experience every time!
