I am a Swing-Jazz-Standards singer--My style is a sort of "crooning-swing". I am a classic song stylist, trying to get the most out lyric and melody. If you like how I sing, let me know and I'll keep you posted on my Gigs as they come in. Me and My Swing Thing Trio--play clubs-private parties-weddings- ect. Cool Swing Jazz on Hot nights and warm Swinging melodies on thoes cold rainy nights. If you'd like to hire us--drop a line and let's talk. I'm keeping the sounds alive that are of the great singers--with a Ring-a-Ding-Ding, and the on-the-beat Bang-Smack power of a Big Band Blast-- that "JUST SENDS YOU, BABY"!
