Two Voices ~ One Piano ~ None Too Serious

With two singers there is a greater range of repertoire than any one vocalist can cover, and there's lots of harmony and fun stage banter, too! We are comfortable engaging audiences of a wide variety of ages and musical tastes.

We play the great songs you love from the 1920's right through today; jazz and Broadway and Pop with heavy swing influences from the greats like Ella & Louis, Fred & Ginger, Steve & Eydie, Sinatra & the Rat Pack, Louis Prima & Keely Smith, Judy Garland, Ray Charles, Billy Joel and Bette Midler. More than just a singer and her sideman; we harmonize and swap lead vocal duties, which is how we can cover a great range of material. We craft our performances for the cocktail lounge, intimate gatherings, or even big parties where guests dance and sing along.

CJ & Ashley met at CJ's regular bi-monthly gig in Bethlehem and they hit it off right away. According to CJ, “Ashley sang a few songs and won me and the entire room over immediately. There's something about playing music with new people that, very rarely, can form instant connections.”

We have a total of more than 30 years of professional performing experience between us. Separately, we have played choir lofts and casino stages, restaurants and cocktail lounges, fraternity houses and biker bars, weddings and private house parties. While our fraternity house and biker bar days are behind us, we have the experience to handle any venue.

Want a bigger sound? Well, drum machines and computer background tracks just ain't our style. Karaoke is a lot of fun, but if you prefer live music let us call upon our friends, who happen to be some of the regions finest musicians. We can add a bass, horns, and/or drums to kick the energy up a notch or two... while maintaining the look, sound, feel, spontaneity and fun you only get with live musicians.

Like a mix of jazz, swing and Broadway standards with a side order of rock 'n' roll?... We've got it covered. How about some new pop songs performed in an accessible and acoustic style?... There's great songs in every generation and genre, so we look for new music to include alongside the classics. We may play it tongue-in-cheek, but we do it respectfully and musically. We hope a new pop performer hearing us cover their songs would smile and say, “That's so cool! I never thought of playing it that way!” So if it's Gershwin or Gaga, Cole Porter or Katy Perry, James Taylor or Justin Timberlake... it's our gig, but it's your party... so you call the tune, then watch us go!
