My name is Francesca. i'm a singer/ actress who works in musical Theatre, but in between jobs have started gigging with my new shiny PA system I'm getting booked doing lots of restaurants etc....but the wider picture is to do all functions....birthdays, weddings, corporate etc.....I can get the gigs but I've been putting off booking them because I'm missing musicians!!! Backing tracks are fine but I want to maintain as high standard as possible.
I'm looking to join up with a pianist preferably for the majority of gigs, but would also be great to have a saxophonist on call for the gigs that require.
For these kinds of gigs here are the kinds of sets that I do....
Slow jazz sets for restaurants/ receptions etc....mixture of old and new
Irving Berlin Set: As Irving Berlin is my great great uncle and I am huge fan of his music, I have put together a set of his music, with a few Cole Porters/ Rogers & Ham/ Hart music also
I absolutely love anything swing/ boogie woogie and ideally would love to work with a pianist with the ability to help me build a set for this kind of music also.
Whoever is up for joining me needs to be committed and reliable.
I will be arranging and booking all gigs and can assure that each musician will be paid between £80-£300 per gig depending on the gig.
You will need to be available to meet up a few times for rehearsals before I book the gigs just so that we have a couple of sets ready to go.... and then be available to do one rehearsal to polish up before each gig. I have all the music and sets arranged, but would love a musicians input....I'm very open to changes etc and would love this to be a collaborative process!! Rehearsals unfortunately won't be paid but I assure that I will not book any gigs unless they are well paid.
Here is a link to a showreel I have on youtube...feel free to look about, theres a few things up there.
Please feel free to contact me on francescaberlin@, or give me a call to discuss on 07738911796
