I am a jazz singer and guitarist in Chicago, performing unaccompanied in the style of the popular songs of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s known as the Great American Songbook, bossa nova, instrumental jazz standards, and popular songs of last half of the 20th century in a jazz style. With a wide repertoire of songs, styles, and moods, I can customize my act for your audience. I have more than 10 years of experience performing across North America in jazz festivals from Mexico City to Toronto, and can be seen regularly at restaurants, clubs and coffee shops in the Chicago area. I perform as a solo artist and with my band, Swing Forward.
My pricing structure is pretty simple:
- $100 for the first hour
- $50 per hour after the first hour
- An additional $50/hr if you would like to book additional musicians (bass, piano, drums, horn, etc.)
