Awesome performance at Stargazer

Very tight group. I really like, Joseph, FluteDaddy's ability to play at an awesome level, easily, and while obviously enjoying it.

I've seen/heard FluteDaddy several times. I've always driven from Denver to Colorado Springs, and I'd drive even further to hear FluteDaddy.

If you enjoy Jazz, you can't go wrong with this group.

Great Jazz Flautist!!!

Joseph is the best flautist I have heard in a very long time. His program is very well done. His ability to capture the attention of everyone in the room is "over the top". It is a delight to listen to a group of musicians, whose leader is so well versed regarding each, and every piece of music performed, and it is, also evident that much research has been done for Joseph's performances. To me, it was like getting a private lesson in music appreciation. It is always a pleasure to attend as many performances of "FluteDaddy", as I can.

Thank you for your wonderful playing and for giving me back the Beatles. I remember where I was when I first heard "Julia". I finally found my White Album. Loved your version and all the beautiful music you gave us that night with your smokin band. Thanks. Julie

Review by Judith L.

"Sunday night at Jives - FluteDaddy was over the moon with arrangements of Beatles favorites and other flute delights. The musicians are a sharp combo with a broad talent base. Joseph is a fun, engaging personality and his emerging heart for the flute touches the right spot for the audience!"

Overview

FluteDaddy specializes in concerts and music for special events.

A concert with the FluteDaddy Quintet is exciting - Smooth jazz flute served with a blend of R&B, Latin, Swing and Funk Rhythms - Improvised solos by jazz masters - Interesting tunes, from touching ballads to foot-tappin’ body-moving grooves.

Relax into a Henry Mancini song like Dreamsville, grin and groove with a FluteDaddy take on a Latin funk Michael Franks tune like Say Bwana He No Home, or enjoy a jazz standard like Good Morning Heartache performed in a a contemporary R&B ballad style.

For special events, receptions, openings etc, FluteDaddy music provides a background that is interesting and entertaining, lovely, subtle and not intrusive. And, when it’s time to turn up the energy, FluteDaddy can boost the excitement with some compelling jazz.

Listeners will connect with the familiar melodies of pop songs, jazz standards, songs from Broadway or the movies, and original tunes.

Testimonials

I had the opportunity to see FluteDaddy perform last night, this was an amazing show! . Joseph Laberti is an amazing musician and is magical with his flute! You couldn't help but feel the connection with the beauty of his music. I highly recommend catching this band and look forward to seeing them again. Thank You FluteDaddy for a memorable evening of spectacular music!

– Jeanine Dione

You and your band brought a lot of class to Stargazers. That was a great performance!!! There were many people with very positive comments about your performance. We should definitely talk about some more performances at Stargazers.

– John Hooten

I love to stop by Soiree to hear FluteDaddy on the first Friday every month to shed the hectic pace of everyday life. The skill and showmanship of the group is a pleasure to hear and watch. Our community is fortunate to have their intention for our attention.

– Ray Krueger

Hi Joseph, Jennifer and I had the absolute best time on Friday night and I want to thank you for keeping me on your e-mail list! We'll be back and we'll bring some company with us! Thank you so much!

– Tris Coffin

I truly enjoyed the performance last night - I felt like I was listening to Herbie Mann at Newport Beach - you all were THAT good! Someday, I'd like to think that I will be able to incorporate that jazz influence into my playing. Thanks for inspiring me.
