I am a selfcontained act performing iconic and classic hit love songs with an occasional, blues, latin, and jump tune in the mix. Specialty is big ballads with covers of Sinatra , Streisand, Rogers, Mittler, and other major recording stars. I perform to my studio master tracks that are used on my CDs. Have my own sound equipt or can work with yours if CD player is available.
I am a wedding singer with a catalog of most beautiful love songs. I am after the style of the rat pack, and my marquee song is My Way, closely followed by "Wind Beneath My Wings," both of which have outstanding arrangements, and will usually bring the house down. I do Lady, You Light Up My Life, You Don't Know Me, and have recently added Streisands, "I Dreamed of You," Sinatra's "How Deep Is THe Ocean," and the gorgeous "My One And Only Love." I don't know who had the hit on this song but I had to do it because it just reached out and said, do me, when I heard it on TV.
Chuck Penningtonm from Mannheim Steamroller has made the arrangements and tracks for several of the songs I sing live and record.Chuck is a fantastic arranger and pianist. Wait till you hear them.
My act is most appropriate for private parties and corporate events where the ageless music of the masters, Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, Kern, and the like is definately in order.
I have found that the music of the Chairmen of the Board is received well by all ages from 21 up. I also make it a point to get up close and personal with my audiences and sing love songs to the ladies, rather than sing them to the room. In December of 2010 I was named the Karaoke King of Omaha by the host of a morning TV show and received a wonderful full page review in the Omaha World Herald, and another nice review in The Las Vegas Tribune. My CDs have received very good reviews as well.
My references, reviews, and credits are available upon request
I reqiure travel expenses for gigs over 100 miles from Omaha.
It was my honor to be nominated for "Best Dressed Man Of Omaha 2011" this year. That won't be decided till September.
I will send free of charge a CD with 15 selections from my catalog of the Love Songs I sing, for your review. Will also include an 8X10 glossy.
I am looking forward to filling your entertainment needs.
The Consummate Gentlemen
