My name is Reuben and I'm 18 years old. - Don't be put off by my age, read on.
I've just moved up from Tauranga, where I used to sing all over the show, including a regular stint at a high class hotel (Sebel Trinity Wharf). Now that I have moved to Auckland and have begun university, I am looking for ways I can continue to perform and be even better that what I was down in Tauranga.
The goal: - To be singing with an excellent jazz combo at classy venues, weddings, functions etc (who know's, maybe even shows??!) around Auckland (or elsewhere).
The members of the combo would live and breathe jazz, swing and bossa nova.
Think of artists such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennet, Michael Bublé, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Cole Porter, Glenn Miller, Dean Martin...
Think of songs such as The Girl From Ipanema, I've Got You Under My Skin, It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), When I Fall In Love, Wave...
If these artists/songs sound like your kind of thing, then you're what I'm looking for!
If someone is a songwriter (or knows someone who writes) who writes (or wants to write) swing, jazz or bossa nova pieces - this would be welcomed. New material would be fantastic!
If you're interested, or you think you know of someone who'd be interested, please submit your interest or pass it on!
