ABOUT

BACKGROUND:
I am a vocalist previously working with a piano/keyboard accompanist doing the classic ballads by Sinatra, Bennett, Ella, etc. and have sung with a large dance band as a featured/spot vocalist as I played trombone in the brass section. As well, I own 5 guitars and play a soft finger picking and strumming style to accompany myself as a solo artist (pubs, bars, etc.).

SEEKING DUET OR TRIO:
Instrumentalists (keyboard and/or guitar preferable) who are vocalists and can harmonize. Repertoire consists of two genres mainly: crooner/dance band/swing era and soft rock sixties but open to great charts from other eras.

and/or...

SEEKING BAND:
With the right band, I can play some guitar and trombone, depending on the need and particular chart, as well as sing background. Where needed, I can play some percussion (ex. djembe or conga drums) and a bit of keyboard. Main Focus -- I would also sing some lead solos as I am looking to utilize my talents, especially vocals, with the right group.
