Amanda is one of those performers that we wish we could clone.  Whenever we book her at a club, the members and staff can’t say enough good things about her.  We believe so strongly in Amanda that we think one day her name will be a household name.  We don’t say that lightly  and we rarely say that about musicians.  Simply put:  We have that much confidence in her, her work ethic and her talent.  Some clubs have booked her poolside, others have chosen to book her year round in the bar area.

One of the things we love most about Amanda is that she makes each song her own.  What we mean by that is that she takes songs that we have heard hundreds of times before and gives them a spin all her own.  Her songs are covers and she does the arrangements herself.  She, also, composes some of her own material.

In this video we see and hear her singing “Landslide,” a song written  by Stevie Nicks .  The song was first featured in the 1975 album simply titled “Fleetwood Mac.”  Twenty three years later the song resurfaced in a live reunion album titled “The Dance.”

Nicks says she wrote this song while considering going back to school or staying on professionally with Lindsey Buckingham, guitarist for Fleetwood Mac.  Nicks and Buckingham were not getting along at the time and making matters worse, Polydor records had just dropped them. She wrote the song in Aspen, Colorado, while sitting in a friend’s living room “looking out at the Rock.y Mountains pondering the avalanche of everything that had come crashing down on us … at that moment, my life truly felt like a landslide in many ways”.

This is the song that is most frequently performed by Fleetwood Mac while on tour.  Except for the Shake the Cage Tour, Stevie Nicks has performed this song on every tour with the band and on her own as a solo artist.

Joe is quite fluent in Spanish and Italian; this is important because he sounds authentic when he sings in the three languages. His first language is English, he sings in that too!

Joe can be booked as a soloist… with the added benefit of getting two musicians in one; since he is a vocalist and a guitarist. If more sound is needed, we can always add more musicians; as shown here.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)”

from the album The Godfather (soundtrack)

Released April 1972

Writer(s) Larry Kusik, Nino Rota

The famous theme, composed by Larry Kusic and Nino Rota.

“Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)” is a song written for The Godfather (1972), the first film in The Godfather trilogy. While its instrumental version is simply known as “The Godfather Love Theme”, “Speak Softly Love” is the vocal version. The words are by Larry Kusik but the music itself is by Nino Rota. The signature musical theme that opens the piece closely models a theme that appears early in “Preludio – Povero Ernesto!” in the opera Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848). A similar melody also appears in the Overture to “La Forza del Destino” by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). There are also different sets of lyrics for the song in Italian (“Parla Più Piano”), French (“Parle Plus Bas”) and also in Sicilian (“Brucia La Terra”). The Sicilian version is sung by Anthony Corleone (Franc D’Ambrosio) in The Godfather Part III.

Rota had used a more comedic version of the song for the 1958 film Fortunella. When this was discovered, Rota’s score for The Godfather was disqualified from consideration at the 1973 Academy Awards; it had been nominated for Best Original Score.  However, Rota’s score for The Godfather Part II won the 1974 Academy Award for Best Score, despite containing the same piece.

Call Me Maybe
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Call Me Maybe”

Writer(s) Carly Rae Jepsen, Josh Ramsay, Tavish Crowe

“Call Me Maybe” is a song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for her EP Curiosity (2012) and appearing on her international debut album, Kiss. The song was written by Jepsen and Tavish Crowe as a folk song, but its genre was modified to pop following the production by Josh Ramsay. “Call Me Maybe” is an upbeat teen pop track that draws influences from dance-pop and disco. Lyrically, the track alludes to the inconvenience that a love at first sight brings to a girl who hopes for a call back from a crush.

Solo Guitarist, Joe S./Time After Time

Finger style guitarist, Joe S., performing at New Jersey country club.

We love his classy rendition of this timeless song. This is the type of soloist one would have during a cocktail hour or during a low-key dinner. Joe would also be the perfect choice at a christening or communion party.

If you’re having a small party, this type of elegant, background music will enhance the ambiance.

Hiring a soloist is a great option, also, when you want live music and entertainment but have a modest budget to work with.

Look for more solo videos featuring Joe.  Right now I am in the process of editing the entire video that was shot on Valentine’s Day.  My favorite(to follow) is his rendition of Stairway to Heaven!

Reserve Joe now!
