Chris Conte is a Westchester based Jazz and Blues Artist that specializes in providing outstanding live music for weddings, private parties, social events, concerts, and festivals.
He sings while playing the upright bass and performs cool and elegant Jazz, Blues, and Swing. Chris leads groups as small as a duo for the most intimate dinner parties and house concerts and as large as a Swing Septet with three horns, drums, guitar, and piano for dancing!
The Chris Conte Trio was recently featured at a beautiful engagement party. After the party, the hosts promptly sent Chris the following
"Hi Chris -
You and your fellow musicians beautifully complemented our daughter's engagement party last Sunday, and many of our guests specifically mentioned how much they enjoyed the music. The lively, lovely sound of your group was melodic and rhythmic without being intrusive; simply put: soft, sophisticated, sonorous. (You must receive many compliments, Chris, on your honey-toned voice that captures the essence of Cole Porter tunes.) In essence, your music made our party sparkle!
Many thanks for playing a leading part in its success.
Cathy and Jim"
In the September issue of Westchester Magazine, accomplished Hastings-on-Hudson based singer/songwriter Matt Turk was asked whom he listens to when he wants to hear some local music. He responded;
"Dobbs Ferry's Chris Conte sings sweetly like Tony Bennett and Chet Baker and plays upright bass beautifully. You can hear him every other week in Hastings-on-Hudson at The Mill."
Thank you for considering Chris for your musical needs. I'd be happy to speak with you about your upcoming event.
