Hale and her jazz band were incredible at our wedding reception! Sounded awesome and they were very easy to work on custom song requests. Book them now!!!
Hale Baskin is endowed with a clear, beautiful voice, a sure sense of swing, and a seemingly innate sense of the nuances of Jazz phrasing. She moves effortlessly from channeling the stompin' swing of the 1920's, to evoking songbirds of the 1940's Big Bands, to Ella Fitzgerald-inspired Jazz favorites, all the way to Motown, soul, and down-home blues. Performing professionally for 15 years, Hale has a bio which could be attributed to an entertainment veteran twice her age. By the time she had her nineteenth birthday, Hale was awarded three Down Beat Magazine Awards for Student Jazz performances, recorded two full length CD's, performed with such notables as Arturo Sandoval, the Count Basie Orchestra, and the Mike Vax Big Band, and led her own ensemble-- booking venues in four western states.
Hale is now offering her talent in Texas to anyone who wishes to make their event a guaranteed success. She has been booking with Gigmasters since 2006 and has always held a 5 star rating; clients rave about her performances. She works closely with each client to help find the right fit for their needs, from an intimate duo all the way up to a swingin' 18-piece BIG BAND. Hale and her band are a great choice for any venue/stage size, budget, or audience taste.
Want to kick the party into high gear? Hale's "Little Big Band" can do that too. The songs of Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Etta James, Stevie Wonder, Tower Of Power, Al Green and other Soul and Motown hit makers are in our private reserve playlist. Looking for something in particular? Just ask!
