Demo and Song List

Demo:




I can sing for up to three hours, but can stretch to four for long events and with proper breaks. 

I can be either featured or as background music while people mill about. Either is fine!

Equipment:

I have my own amp/PA system, an Ion Blockrocker, which is pretty powerful, with a microphone. It can be used indoors or outdoors as it's rechargeable.

Things I'd like:


  • A small table near where I sing to set down my cards, CDs, promotional materials, and my ever-present water.
  •  To be told ahead if there are pets if it's a house party, especially cats. I am a definite pet lover, but highly allergic to everything adorable (it's one of the tragedies that defines my life). I do just fine as long as I know to take something in advance.
  • For the area where I sing to be near an outlet. My amp is rechargeable, but I prefer to be near an outlet just in case. It's not required, though.


Music:

My playlist is mostly jazz standards of the 40s and 50s, but I am always open to other genres. I can usually also learn a few new ones on request for an event, provided I can get the tracks and have enough notice.

My repertoire is always growing and I am always open to learning new songs, but these are the ones I can sing at the drop of a hat:

April in Summer and Happy Sing-iversary to me!

I've recently realized it's officially been 7 years since I got the silly notion of singing on the streets of Laguna Beach, just until I got a "real" job again. I never thought it would turn out to be such a stable and very real job, but it has. Between people hiring me for restaurants and assisted living communities and parties and events, this is full time and I genuinely enjoy myself at work. And there are now 416 people on my mailing list. I'm so happy to have so many people that enjoy what I do enough to want to be updated or to come hear me. 

Enough sappiness from me, though. Here's where you can find me for the rest of the summer. 

You can find me at Darya on Mondays from 6:30-9:30 and Fridays from 7-10 except the first Friday of the month. You can also find me at Quattro on Tuesdays 4:30-8:30. I'm at Aqua (Wednesday, August 24th, 6-9 pm) in Lake Forest on the fourth Wednesday of every month. 

No cover at any of the places, as always, just some lovely food, some nice atmosphere, and this girl singing. I hear she's okay. ;)
