What to Expect
George's vocals are his strong point as he captures the feel for the song he is singing. The wide variety of songs in his repertoire are well suited for a mature audience and range from the 1930's through the 1980's covering standards, rock & roll, classic country and show tunes. The ability to provide the correct ambiance for an event is crucial and this entertainer prides himself on never being too loud for the most intimate occasion yet "keeping the party going" when needed.
