About Chris Conte

Vocalist and Upright Bassist, Chris Conte performs Classic, Swinging American Songbook Jazz & Blues favorites. He takes influence from musical legends, such as: Nat "King" and Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr., and Diana Krall. His voice is often compared to that of a young Chet Baker or Mel Torme; while his bass playing compliments his dulcet vocals with a deep, dark, rich accompaniment. As of late, Chris has also incorporated selections from iconic blues man B.B. King and "The Genius of Soul" Ray Charles to round out a tour of vintage Americana heard through Swing, Jazz and Blues!

Bio

In addition to performing Swing, Jazz and Blues (which makes the perfect companion to cocktail parties, dinner parties, and receptions) Chris has a wide range of skills as a vocalist and an upright bassist which give him the opportunity to extend a "full service" product for weddings and other private events alike. He is a classically trained singer and bassist and often performs featured classical vocal selections and/or classical instrumental pieces for Wedding Ceremonies. Chris owns a high quality P.A. system that is perfect for small to medium large venues and often works as a Master of Ceremony for discreet upscale events. While not a traditional D.J., Chris offers a service he likes to call "Music Amplification" which ensures that the bride or host hears exactly the music she or he wishes to hear during their special event. By providing all of these varied services all at the highest level, Chris is your one stop for all your Musical needs for your upcoming event.
