My name is Josh DeAraugo. That's my dog Sonny.

 

I have spent most of my life playing music and my entire life, being surrounded by it.

I come from a very musical family and for as long as I can remember, music has been my thing.

 

As I’ve grown older, my relationship with music hasn’t changed but the way I play it and who I get to play it with has.

 

I started out just playing the guitar. My Dad always played music in bands and I always loved that. As I got a little more confident on the guitar, he invited me to come along and play a few songs with him at some of his gigs.

Slowly but surely, I built my confidence and ability on the guitar to a level where I could play a whole night.

Every song.

The more I did this, the more I fell in love with playing music and the joy that the crowd would get as the night went on.

  

Whether it’s a birthday party or wedding reception or any kind of event where a good time is required, I love providing that.

 

One thing I’ve spent a lot of time getting right is knowing what songs to play at what time.
I never use a set list.

I just read the room and play the song that is needed and nothing is better than taking requests. It makes for the ultimate crowd experience.

I know hundreds of songs and whether it’s a sing along that has everyone arm in arm, swaying back and forth, singing at the top of their lungs, a flat out dance song that brings out all the best moves or it’s the entire room belting out a “BUP BUP BAAAH” when I sing “Sweet Caroline”, the right song at the right time is the key.
