Why book Curt Yagi, Award Winning Singer Songwriter?
San Francisco based singer songwriter Curt Yagi has been on a tear through the Bay Area music scene. The 2008 Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter (SF Bay Guardian) currently has his song "Sweep Me" featured on the KFOG Local Scene 8 CD. Curt and his full band, The People Standing Behind Me, are always-engaging to the crowd and bring a blend of happy acoustic rock with a touch of funk for flavor.
Best of all, Ben Fong-Torres, former Senior Editor, Rolling Stone had this to say...
"People keep comparing him to other artists, but I think he just sounds like Curt Yagi, and that is plenty good enough. This is one excellent singer and songwriter."
Curt is available as a solo artist, a full band and/or anything in between. Curt's blend of bouncy, yet sensitive acoustic guitar riffs, coupled with driving bass lines and funk infused horns will provide an ambiance adaptable to any situation. Curt has played more intimate settings such as house concerts and weddings, to bigger shows such as festivals and major venues.
My band is very adaptable depending on the situation as I am available as a solo artist, a full band (complete with even horns) and/or anything and everything in between. My style of music is happy acoustic rock with a touch of funk and reggae for flavor and I am able to fit within the parameters of the gig. For example, I have played many smaller gigs (e.g. wine bars, small weddings, etc.) where I have brought a mellow trio to perform more in the background and I have also played big corporate events with the full band. I will say that my music is all original although I have about 20% covers that I can play. I do think what you get from me is a great experience with an original artist who knows how to play to the environment.
