Have you ever thought “they just don’t make music like they used to?” You turn on the radio now and hear the screams of rock stars, the booming bass lines of hip hop music, or that wretched thing called “auto-tune.” What happened to old fashioned wholesome music? Just a sharp dressed guy in front of a microphone singing...or a better term - crooning. Lucky for you, the genre isn’t completely lost. These crooners are keeping that old sound and style alive, paying tribute to the original crooners, singing all the pop standards of the 20s through 50s.
Andy Williams, Bing Crosby and Frank Sintra were all recognized crooners. This technique of singing became popular in the late 1920's through the early 1960's and is often associated with influences ranging from jazz, romantic ballads, big-band, swing, and ambient mood music, as well as popular film soundtracks. Whatever your event, a Crooner can offer music that is unique and inviting to all types of guests.
There are a few things you should do when booking a crooner. First, you should always listen to audio and watch video samples. This will ensure that you book the best for your special event. Next, be sure to get a contract. Make sure to read the Crooner's contract carefully and watch for specifications made by the singer. Last, it's a good idea to read reviews and get references. Talk to people in the area and previous clients about the Crooner you intend to hire.
