International Pro-Singer Barbara Ochoa
Barbara W. Ochoa
International Jazz and Pop
Available to perform in San Francisco, Los Angeles and all of the state of California. I also work in Las Vegas and Chicago.
I am a solo singer that designs bands around me. That type of flexibility allows me to fit all types of budgets and situations. I can come as a solo singer with recorded music, a duo with a piano player (and recorded music if needed) or a full live band with 4+ musicians depending on your event. I can even hire a DJ to come with the band which is becoming all the rage now.
My style of handling any job is to use my lifetime of experience and read what a crowd responds to depending on the ages and cultures that are in attendance. If the crowd responds to jazz, swing, older classic rock, 80s, etc., that is what they get. If they respond to Salsa or current radio hits the DJ type recorded music gives my group the range to please everyone.
I am all about what the client wants and how to make everyone have a good time. Your party is in good hands with the act I can provide. :)
