Wearing, (and very well) many hats is Anita's, aka, Asbury Park Angel's skill. She is a dynamic and versatile Songwriter/Performer,
inspirational speaker, life coach, impassioned health advocate,
fashion maven, Jazz Diva, Rock n Roll Queen, artist/photographer,
blogger and minister. She is also a a consummate professional, giving her very best to every person and in every situation.
Life's curve balls have resulted in amazing opportunities, rather than setbacks, challenging her to take her people-artistry experience to the next level!
Music is her tool to celebrate, empathize and enlighten/inspire. God
rewards her with a myriad of places to share her gift, from Manhattan
to Pennsylvania. She straddles many genres, performing top 40,
classic rock, R&B, jazz and folk/acoustic situations, from quaint
cafes, restaurants, pubs to jazz/blues festivals.
Also an independent recording artist, she has performed solo and
with a band at family festivals, church coffeehouses, maximum security prisons, and the past two years, at rehabilitation facilities for the disabled. This surprising new avenue opened because of her victorious Dystonia and Lyme Disease battle leading to her becoming a preventative health advocate. She's been around the block!
Her boundless energy, creativity and infectious positivity has made
every client's events memorable and professional. Anita delights in honoring requests for benefits for domestic violence victims, neglected and abused kids, the elderly and/or wheelchair people as well as our courageous veterans. She never wants to miss out on an opportunity to uplift and encourage someone to victor over a difficult circumstance and is always willing to negotiate her prices.
Her equipment includes two full PA systems, Mackie 12 channel mixing board, power speakers, and a smaller Community PA set-up. She performs an unplugged acoustic set-up or with her instrumental tracks that sound like a full band. She's also available as a duo.
If you are looking for a unique and lovely performer for your event, look no further. Listen to her wonderful sounds, read her inspiring bio/blogs and view her lovely photographs! Your events will truly be stellar and memorable.
