About Scott Perkins
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;">&nbsp;</p><p>Scott Perkins</p><p><em>Coming soon to a Tiki Bar near you </em></p><p>Singer, songwriter and lead guitarist Scott Perkins has been rocking and rolling since the 1960s. The self-taught musician wore the grooves off his first BB King record as a teen-ager. He hasn&rsquo;t stopped learning and performing since, playing venues from Michigan to Las Vegas, Texas to Florida, in a variety of high-energy classic rock and show bands, including Dodge Street Band, a group formed in his home state of Michigan back in the late 1960s.&nbsp; Dodge Street first brought Scott to Florida in the &lsquo;70s.</p><p>In the new millennium Perkins took on a new challenge: pulling together a solo act focusing more on his original acoustic music. Remaining true to his blues-rock roots, the BMI recording artist has written, performed and produced four albums of original songs, including his latest release &ldquo;Ships &amp; Giggles.&rdquo; Released in 2010, the nautically themed cd draws inspiration from Scott&rsquo;s travels aboard his 32-foot DownEast sailboat Chip Ahoy. &nbsp;His first cd, &ldquo;Tiller Dreams,&rdquo; also features songs from a mariner&rsquo;s perspective with particular focus on America&rsquo;s Great Circle Loop, which Scott, wife Cyndi and Chip Ahoy have twice completed in 6,000-mile circuits from their home waters of Lake Superior off Michigan&rsquo;s Keweenaw Peninsula. Since then Chip Ahoy has become a moveable winter home, sailing down Florida&rsquo;s West Coast to the Keys, returning North up the Alabama&rsquo;s rivers in early spring.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>Not for boaters only, Scott&rsquo;s music remains popular in the blues, folk, Americana, classic rock and adult alternative genres. His third cd, &ldquo;Bits &amp; Pieces,&rdquo; is composed entirely of original instrumentals, some of which have found air time in commercials and promotional videos here and overseas.</p><p>Scott&rsquo;s musical influences include Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Santana and Bob Dylan.</p><p>Among the headliners at numerous clubs, regional festivals and benefit concerts up North as a solo act and as a member of the Hassle Family Band and with Dodge St. Band.</p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman;">To sample or purchase any of Scott's music check out <a href="http://www.cdbaby.com/scottperkins1">www.cdbaby.com/scottperkins1</a> email: svchipahoy@gmail.com</span></span></p>
