An entertainer from Nashville will make two appearances at Bert's Bar and Grill this month, one of which includes a 10-year anniversary celebration.

Brent Moyer, who is a singer/songwriter, entertainer, guitar, bass and trumpet player and producer became interested in the music industry after listening to a neighbor give clarinet and trumpet lessons.

At the young age of 6 he decided he wanted to be a trumpet player when he grew up.

Over the years his career took off in Americana roots music.

He has toured in Europe since 1992 where he released five CDs on a European label, as well as five others on independent records.

"I enjoy the fact that I get to do a little bit of everything," Moyer said. "As long as it is music it is great. I like the diversity to be able to do a little bit of everything."
