I sing songs made famous by Sinatra and friends. I sing in a relaxed, sophisticated style that is ideal for cocktail hours, dining, weddings, corporate functions, private parties, and so on. My role at your event is to help you create a pleasing environment for your guests to enjoy as they dine, mingle or listen to some great songs. I am accompanied by professional jazz combos' pre-recorded arrangements. My fee is $75 for 1.5 hours of performance. I am happy send you sample recordings on request.

I hired David to sing at an end of season house party in the Traverse City area. We had a nice day so David set up on the lawn and sang some great jazz standards for about 90 minutes. It was good fun. He took requests and he was sensitive to the mood of the group. I would hire him again.
I hired David to sing cocktail music during the reception/cocktail time of my daughter's wedding. The reception was in a tent; there were about 80 people. David sang a variety of standards while people mingled. People enjoyed it, sometimes clapping at the end of some of the up-tempo songs. The addition of a live singer helped keep the party going until it was time to sit down for dinner. David was easy to work with, he looks good, and I would recommend him for your event.
David sang at a cocktail party for us, and did a great job. He knows how to connect with the guests, and everyone enjoyed it. He is very easy to work with, and has a wide selection of great songs.
David sang at our home for an early summer celebration / cookout of about 50 people. He sang for 2 hours and everyone enjoyed the entertainment. David's performance helped to create a special, fun atmosphere. He has a great voice and a good selection of Jazz Standards.
Price Range: $50 to 75 dollars.
Gig Length: 20 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
Great vocal jazz standards made famous by Sinatra, Bennett and others. Suitable for entertainment at: weddings; parties; fundraising events; clubs; restaurants; house parties and dancing. I enjoy interacting the the audience between songs. If I can help people enjoy their time together at your event, then I have done my job.
After an early retirement, I have been offering entertainment by singing Jazz Standards. I love the tunes, and this comes though in my performance. My goal is to insure that:
1.) You are happy with the planning process.
2.) Your guests enjoy my presentation.
3.) I contribute to success of your event.
What I am really after is to make your occasion or event or celebration a bit more fun and a bit more successful than it would have been without me helping out.
I look forward to hearing from you. David

Influences & Inspiration
Frank Sinatra is my primary influence. His emotional impact, his phrasings, his warm reedy voice. My delivery is not intended as an act of impersonation. However Sinatra does inform my singing.
