I hired Acoustic Violet to play as a surprise for a small group celebrating a couple of milestones. Acoustic Violet made a thoughtful effort to play appropriate songs for the occasions. She was on top of our communication, performed right on time, played and sang very well, and entertained the group. I would recommend Acoustic Violet as a performer. Cathy K.
Response from Acoustic Violet:
I very much enjoyed being able to play for your daughters and their friends. Thank you so very much, Catherine, for the privilege to share the gift of song with your family~
The venue provided a private dining area for the group which really made it special. It was wonderful for me to have such an attentive dinner audience. We all sang Happy Birthday together as a finale ")

What to Expect
I arrive shortly before the agreed time, ready to perform as a minstrel or early enough to do set-up as required. Attire is professional to suit the event. My songs consists primarily of original works peppered with appropriate covers. I do perform select covers as needed for special requests where original songs are not a good fit. (Unplugged Singer/Songwriter to full acoustic band or larger for festivals)
Generally, I am familiar with venues in ABQ. If I am not, I will visit the day before to assure familiarity whenever possible. I prefer to be prepared for a pleasant performance experience for all involved as much as possible.
Willing to travel as needed with appropriate planning and paid expenses as per prior arrangements and contractual agreements outline.
Born in New York City, Britte got her first taste of show biz as a kid. Her auntie took her to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. The lines to get in that day were so long, it made the front page of the New York Times. Lil' Miss B's beaming grin was right smack in the middle of the shot. At home, she practiced rolling around on the floor and bouncing off furniture while belting Beatles tunes and songs from The Sound of Music. Fast forward about a decade...
With a strong sensibility for word play, Britte excelled in creative writing and poetry competitions in school. Coming of age in South FL as a guitar toting beach bunny and armed with a voice that made people listen, the songwriter quickly became a regular performer on local coffee house scenes. After two band collaborations, one in FL and another in TX, it was time to shake things up. Britte packed her life into her car, drove to the Land of Enchantment, and immediately fell madly in love with NM!
Currently, Acoustic Violet is producing a home concert series for high desert music lovers, a book of lyric artwork , re-forming her band (Naked Violet) and working as an extra in film. Acoustic Violet is an artist who relishes sharing her craft with her audience, thriving on creating memorable experiences with and for her fans.
About Naked Violet the Band
Solo gigging on both the South FL and Dallas coffee house circuits lead to the founding of her indie band Naked Violet. The band's sound compares to the likes of Heart, Annie Lennox, Sheryl Crow, and The Cranberries. Naked Violet played to eager audiences in every venue of the Deep Ellum Art District, Metro Dallas-Ft. Worth Music Festival Scene, and beyond. Unfortunately, life affecting changes forced the band to dissolve. But not before recording the 'Shades of Violet" song collection! The new line up will be starting rehearsals soon for a pending indie film project!
Additional Booking Notes
I do have a small PA and mics as needed, but do not need it for acapella or solo acoustic performances. I use it for house concerts and acoustic band performances.
