Why hire Sam Ortolano?
I am a solo jazz acoustic guitarist who specializes in jazz renditions of classic tunes from the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's. A graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been performing for many years at clubs, restaurants, weddings, formal dinner parties, corporate functions and anywhere else where a pleasant live music backdrop adds to the overall ambience of an event. My set lists can be for 2 - 4 hours, I have my own professional P.A. system, small or large depending on what is needed, and I am always available to perform on short notice.
I love to play my guitar for people. Whether it be a formal affair or just a fun get together with friends, I'm always happy to whip out my guitar and perform. I started playing standards back when I was attending Berklee School of Music in Boston. I ended up getting regular gigs at some local eateries and watering holes. One thing lead to another and I soon found myself branching out all over New England playing 4 or 5 nights a week. Upon graduating from school I moved to So. Cal. and have in many ways picked up where I left off back east. I have played countless weddings, parties, corporate functions, college alumni dinners, you name it and I've probably done it. I have from time to time pulled in regular gigs at So. Cal restaurants and cafe's such as The Equator in Pasadena, and Shutters in Santa Monica to name a couple. For party planners I can work on short notice in whatever setting is required. To reach me asap, call 626-755-0293.
Some of my repertoire is as follows:
Yesterday, Girl from Ipanema, Moon River, My Romance, Stairway to Heaven, Black Orpheus, Hey Jude
What to Expect
I am self-contained, owning P.A. equipment for any venue, big or small, onside or outside.
