Hire me

Kevin Çelebi

hire me!

The title is trumpet mercenary, after all!  I'm available for hire for many different things.

trumpet playing

I've been playing the trumpet for as long as I can remember, and if I only have one true passion in life, music is the one.  I feel comfortable playing in virtually any style, such as:

- Jazz
    - Postbop/modern (favorite)
    - Big band
    - New Orleans/dixieland
    - Fusion
    - Anything with a ton of improvisation
    - Bop/swing/mainstream/everything else in between!
- Classical
    - Brass quintet
    - Orchestral/concert band
    - Church/liturgical
    - Salsa bands
    - Brazilian/bossa/samba
- Top 40/party!
- R&B/soul/hip-hop fusion (like the RH Factor)

I've played with a ton of different musicians and bands.  Check my performance schedule to get an idea of past, present, and future collaborations.

web development

In addition to my own site, I create websites and applications for others, and I'd love to do yours, too.  I've worked for Eckerd College, Ringling College of Art & Design, Sarasota Jazz Project, etc. - check out my portfolio!


composing & arranging

I really, really, really like writing music.  The only thing that prevents me from doing it all day is the universal constraint of time.  My favorite stuff to write is jazz in the modern idiom, but I also love arranging/reworking classic hits (Stevie Wonder), gospel and church music, old crooners, and classical music alike.  If you'd like some original music or arrangements, I'd love to work with you!  Check out tunes I've composed/arranged.




Aside from music, software engineering/devops is my other field.  Cloud, system administration, both back-end and front-end development, code reviews - I love to work all kinds of different projects  I've even got a few certifications.  Check out my (pseudo)-resume to see what I like working with.
