REWIND is a one-man vintage oldies act featuring veteran Kansas City entertainer David Chartrand. NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT STIPULATE "OLDIES" MUUSIC WITHOUT SOME CLARITY AND SPECIFICITY. "Oldies" is a broad term, and its meaning is different by age groups. Please indicate what musical decade you prefer, or your favorite bands. Without this info it's hard for to assess the audience demographic and determine which songs to prepare. I can perform solo, or I can involve your guests in the music by inviting them to sing with me or sing with karaoke tracks while viewing lyrics. I can perform as quietly as you wish, or I can rev up the music for a danceable rock "and" roll experience.
Price Range: $200 two-hour minimum; $90 each additional hour
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
Insurance: $50,000 - David insures his own equipment. No special insurance requirement for venues.
What to Expect
Your guests will be ENTERTAINED by David, which involves more than mere performing. He communicates with them, mingles with them, takes song requests. He engages everyone, from little children to senior citizens. You will receive the best David has to give — especially if you indicate in advance the demographic and age range of your guests. That allows David to consult with you ahead of time about the types of music you desire and don’t desire. (You’d be surprised how few musicians offers such flexibility and customization.) David’s repertoire of 1,000 songs honed across a 40-year music career offers entertainment for everyone. He is renowned for his tendering of “baby boomer” hits of the 1950s thru the 1970s. Having performed in several Beatles tribute acts, David’s sub-specialty is the music of The Beatles and the artists of 1960s.
REWIND is Kansas City musician David Chartrand’s one-man tribute to America’s favorite music. Clients buy his unique adaptions of vintage hit songs from the 1930 through the 1980s. David’s act works for casual parties, reunions, holiday gatherings, and birthdays, to black-tie events hosted by companies and public organizations. (When inquiring, please indicate the demographic and general age-group of your audience so David can customize the music for your guests.) David is far more than a performer. He’s an entertainer.
