My specialty as a vocalist is in jazz, blues and contemporary music. Some of my influences are Billie Holiday, Etta James, Ida Cox and Ella Fitzgerald. I can perform solo, with a keyboardist, or with a band. Our five piece band consists of a guitarist or keyboardist, a drummer, bassist, a trumpeter or saxophonist and a vocalist.

My pay range for parties and other functions is $100-750 for solo performances $200-1000 for duo performances with a keyboardist and $500-1500 for live band performances for a one to three hour set.
