Why hire Clemón?
I perform music from the 50's to the 90s. I do mainly covers with some origanals.My music is perfect for a cocktail hour for a special event or wedding. I am also equiped to entertain a restaurant lounge or speak easy type setting.
I am trained in West Indian folk music as well as reggae. Storytelling is one of my passions and most recently composing music for Poetry.
I have played at large venues from Harrahs Lake Tahoe to Sacramento Memorial Auditorium.
My fave quote is" Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul"
