Scott Youngberg is an acoustic singer/songwriter, well known in the Florida Keys. As well as performing annually in events such as Bay Jam and the Key Largo Original Music Festival, he travels regularly up to Miami / Ft. Lauderdale and down to Key West. His show features a widely varied playlist mixing original songs with select cover tunes and popular songs. Scott utilizes a state-of-the-art Bose Tower sound system, two of them when performing with a full band.
Originally from Chicago, he kept moving farther and farther south, settling in the Florida Keys. Scott got his start in the Chattanooga music scene first "working the door" for The Handy Award-winning "Blues Doctor," Russell Linnemann and The Travelling Riverside Blues Caravan, then playing clubs and festivals. He's been performing at clubs, resorts, weddings and parties full time in the Florida Keys since 1997, where he's recorded and produced his first CD, "Live At Sunset," followed by the all original album called "Idle Speed". Live cover selections include songs from artists such as Paul Simon, James Taylor, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Beatles, and many one-hit wonders. Acoustic selections by Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zepplin, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Pink Floyd, and The Rolling Stones make for a harder, more energetic set. Expect popular dance tunes and Jimmy Buffett songs at your request. More recent selections include Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Matchbox 20, Dave Matthews, and Counting Crows. You can listen to original songs right here - just click the "Listen to the Music" tab.
