I am pleased to be of service as an event singer. Please read below for all details:
I am a trained vocalist and graduate of the Berklee College of Music and have been performing for over 10 years. I have released 2 albums independently and am currently working on my third. I see music as a form of service and love to help make events special and unique to you by playing some of your favorite songs.
I play pop, folk, original, jazz and world music AND your favorite songs! I take up to five requests per event. Just let me know your requests one month ahead of time. I sing in English (and some Spanish and Portuguese) and accompany myself on baritone ukulele, acoustic guitar and piano (if the venue is able to provide a piano). I have my own PA system and equipment so all you will need to provide is a 10 x 10 feet area (and maybe a chair or stool). Please see a sample set list below to get an idea; after 10 years of performing a taking song requests my repertoire enables me to play up to 4 hours of music solo.
My musical influences are: Regina Spektor, Gillian Welch, Dolly Parton, Juan Luis Guerra, Violeta Parra, Eduardo Gatti, Mercedes Sosa, Gepe, Tom Jobim, João Gilberto, Bebel Gilberto, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Carla Morrison, Norah Jones, Ricky Martin, Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift, Christina Perri, Joni Mitchell, Phoebe Snow, Ella Fitzgerald, Ani DiFranco, Nina Simone, Nara Leão, Elis Regina, Billie Holiday, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Willy Nelson, Alison Krauss, Billy Joel, Caetano Veloso, Tori Amos, Claudia Acuña, David Bowie, David Guetta, Francesca Ancarola, Elvis Presley, Eva Cassidy, Fiona Apple, Gotye, Joe Bagale, Ketama, Luciana Souza, Maria Rita, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Meghan Trainor, Sarah Tavares, Simon & Garfunkel, Lila Downs, Mariachi Flor de Toloache, Josh Groban and Yael Naïm
I play weddings, proms, baby showers, bar mitzvahs, celebrations, funerals, happy hours, picnics, bachelorette parties, concerts, bat mitzvahs, bridal showers, events, bachelor parties, banquets, christenings, conventions, festivals, fund raisers, halloween parties, meetings, birthday parties (adult), first communions, luau parties, wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, engagement parties, family reunions, rehearsal dinners and more.
I service Rochester, NY, the Hudson Valley and the New York City area. If you live outside of these three areas please do not hesitate to get in touch – I am always eager to travel outside of New York State.
I am now booking for the Fall 2016 and 2017 season. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Email is best since I am frequently out of the office but you can always call (585) 732 5622
