Ava was quick in responding to my emails prior to the event and showed up on time to the event. She performed a wonderful selection of Christmas songs for an event with 65 people. She has a great voice and is truly a wonderful entertainer. We plan to have her back next year!
Ava is very talented and easy to work with. She is incredibly professional and responsive!
Ava was a pleasure to meet & she is a great entertainer ! Her songs and voice were mesmerizing and she plays the saxophone beautifully, I highly recommend her. Ava sounds like the original artist ...one could not tell it was other than that. She is beautiful and adaptable too. As the party guests arrived late she was so patient and kind wanting to please. Thank you for making the event special-----Janet in Roseville CA
SHE WAS OUTSTANDING
What to Expect
Depending on the venue and event type, I can move around the audience with my saxophone, or stay put, and I do not need a lot of space. I have the latest BOSE PROFESSIONAL system, plus I play similar music during any breaks so that it's a seamless musical event. I will be prompt, my system takes about 30 minutes to set up, and I do NO sound checks, so it is absolutely clean, professional and polished.
My performances are memorable, how many female saxophonists have you seen or heard? It's unusual and I also am family friendly, so if there are youngsters, they are always fascinated by my beautiful sax, "Smokey," and I've been known to spontaneously sing a Disney song a capella! I love to perform for all kinds of venues and for all people, and with a catalog of more than 200 songs from Motown to jazz, funk, classic rock and disco! I can entertain multiple generations, from one to thousands, indoors or out!
The Singing Saxstress™ is a unique talent for your unique event! With a broad range of music, her magnificent voice and smooth saxophone, Ava Lemert has won awards & will win your guests' hearts with her exceptional performance.
Wireless sound system or a Capella for any setting or audience! From a winery to an anniversary gathering, Ava has garnered praise and ardent fans from her warm, exhilarating performances. She's graced the historic Avalon Ballroom stage on Catalina Island for the 2012 JazzTrax Festival, her recordings feature international talent and she herself has headlined the world-famous contemporary jazz lounge at Spaghettini in Seal Beach. All this besides the many nominations and hundreds of private performances for just about every stripe of audience in the Sacramento region. Ava has both sang and played on her saxophone, the National Anthem for the Rivercats (several times, plus "God Bless America" for the 7th inning stretch), as well as for several State organizations, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Light the Night Walk, Man and Woman of the Year, as well as for the Kings. She's been a special musical guest on Fox 40 Morning News, Insight on Capitol Public Radio, on Good Day Sacramento Weekend Edition and Sacramento and Company.
Additional Booking Notes
I can perform in a variety of situations, most commonly, I perform as a soloist with either a brand-new BOSE L1-Pro 8 system, or for smaller, or remote (no power outlet) situations, I have a BOSE S1-Pro system, singing and playing my saxophone with my own arranged performance tracks. Another instance that is common is to perform a cappella (no tracks, or electricity required), I can also sing or guest solo with a group, a house band or with time and budget, my own. Please have a safe, clear area to perform of roughly 6' square within a reasonable distance to a standard power outlet (if possible). It should be dry, flat, stable, and I DO NOT PERFORM IN SMOKING ENVIRONMENTS (HOMES, CASINOS, ETC). Other than that, a place to park my car that is close and available an hour prior to my start time, please. I also require that the balance due is paid BEFORE LEAVING. Cash, or I do have an NFC/chip card reader (transaction fee is extra).
