In addition to singing tunes from his four critically acclaimed CDs, Aram performs unforgettable 20th century classics.
Accompanying his rich tenor on both guitar and piano, he enhances the warm and familial atmosphere that you have created for your guests. He is very quick to learn requests and can double as your MC/DJ with top of the line PA gear.
As the Holidays near, make sure to enquire about his Holiday Classics for your event!
Aram sang at our family only Covid wedding and was like part of the family by the end! He was incredibly kind and flexible and learned 4 new songs in about 2 weeks. He is extremely talented and matched the vibe of the wedding day song for song. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a singer/pianist/guitar player/all around great time!
thanks Aram for making a perfect birthday party. Everyone enjoyed the music and we appreciated your flexibility to stay a little longer than planned.
We will invite you again for other events in the future.
Aram was very accommodating, professional and very talented. His sound is amazing. With very short notice , three days, Aram learned 5 songs and created a medley of four. His rates are very reasonable. I highly recommend Aram.
Aram couldn’t have done a better job with our event for the holidays! He was kind, considerate and the entire crowd loved his presence. I would definitely recommend an rehire Aram at any future gathering. If you can book him definitely do it !
Aram played for our "Music by the River" event last weekend and it was a total hit! First time we've included music in the celebration and it couldn't have been better. Aram arrived with plenty of time to set up and his music and sound system were just perfect for our event. Aram interacted with the crowd and his music was a great blend of older classic tunes which the group liked to sing to and dance to :) We will definitely be using his services again!
We do an annual holiday program and hired Aram to sing and play guitar. He was great! There’s a lot of moving parts and he flowed right along. He’s very talented, beautiful singer! Thank you Aram !
Aram played our wedding, he's so talented! He's got a huge catalogue of great songs, he brought Guitar, Piano and Harmonica. He's very easy to work with, and he sounds great! We had him learn our first dance song, and our Mother/Son & Father/Daughter song - very happy with the way things went over the whole evening.
Aram was great! He showed up at the scheduled time and was already singing before everyone showed up. He had a great selection of songs that appealed to most people. He helped make our event a hit.
Aram has such a talent, as he says in his video, of blending in with the audience and singing so many of the favorites. This man is a very talented singer and allows the audience to really enjoy his selections, but his biggest talent really his ability to write and sing his own music. He is a fantastic songwriter and the blending and recording were done with such expertise. I just finished listening to his album Ghosts in Season and I honestly liked every song on that album. Maybe I am making an assumption that he wrote this music himself, but that's my gut feeling. Now I am wondering why he's not playing that music at the different venues? It's haunting, reflective, creative and draws you in. I am confident that people would really enjoy it, especially after hearing several and being introduced to your ability and style.
Aram sang and played in a small, noisy room to somewhat of a tough crowd. He was professional and accommodating, yet friendly and fun and just went with the flow. His repertoire is broad and his arrangements are nifty. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Aram..
Aram did an amazing job playing at our wedding. People from all walks of life were both impressed and moved by his performance, and he was on-time, knew exactly what to do and when, and is a really amazing and kind person, to boot. Hire him. You won't be disappointed.
We booked Aram to play for a neighborhood going away party we were throwing. Aram arrived right on time and quickly set up his equipment. Aram did such an outstanding job playing guitar and singing - he has an awesome voice and everyone enjoyed his singing! Thank you Aram for helping make this event awesome! We will certainly contact you again for the next one!
