Every Life has a story. And every story has an adventure.
My musical adventure started in 1997 as the owner of Beat Niq Jazz and Social Club in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This adventure included expansion of my venue, booking and listening to Grammy, Juno, and Gemini award winners in my very own club, and suddenly having the privelege and opportunity to actually perform on my own stage. The wheels had been set in motion for myself as an artist.
My musical tastes are vast, but the era of the Big Band and the crooners of that age has taken hold. I concentrated on the works of such great American writers as Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, along with the brilliant arrangements of Nelson Riddle. My show celebrates the good stuff in life; romance, flirtation and the genuine fun that comes from experiences among friends. There is no other experience greater for myself than to perform in front of and to appease audiences. The reward for myself has changed my life, and I hope to share my passion of song and share these rewards with you.
I am currently available for public concert dates, private and corporate events, weddings and other celebrations. For more information, please call or email at:
