Bonnie Para grew up with a love of singing and performing jazz standards. Before moving to south Florida recently where she teamed up with Paul Shuster, she performed throughout the Pacific Northwest with her trio in restaurants, wineries, clubs, private parties and corporate events. Bonnie's voice lends itself to original and fresh approaches to jazz stylings and the lush "blue notes" that make the blues blue. Whether jazz, blues, bossa or pop, she approaches each song with the intent of making it her own.
Paul Shuster is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston where he studied from 1968 to 1972. Over the years, Paul has played with a long list of great musicians, including The Lettermen, 5th Dimension, Anna Maria Alberghetti, Red Buttons, Charlie Callas, and Tavares to name just a few. You are sure to enjoy listening to Paul play jazz on his vintage 1964 Gibson L5 named "Rose".
