Lisa Casalino provided full entertainment for our wedding at the Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach, FL. From start to finish, she was a pleasure to work with. Professional and very helpful to us with coordinating our wedding timeline of events in respect to choosing the appropriate music for our ceremony, cocktail hour & reception. She was a one woman show that evening changing roles during each part and providing us a different selection of music, based on what we asked for. She played guitar and sang acoustically during our cocktail hour, which our guests raved about. Moving into the reception, she sang jazz, popular and classic songs! It was just the right mix of everything! Our friends & family still ask us about her and tell me how much they enjoyed her entertainment at our wedding. My new husband & I couldn't agree more! Her voice is stunning and with that she created a beautiful, classy and elegant atmosphere, which was everything we had hoped for at our wedding!
Lisa Casalino is an amazing talent on the brink of national break-out success! You will be so thrilled you made the brilliant decision to have Lisa perform at your event. Your guests, like ours, will not stop raving about her amazing voice, charming personality, and ability to read the needs of her audience. Her energy is contagious, her sound is soulful, and her actions always thoughtful. She is the consummate professional.

Response from Lisa Casalino:
Amazing Artist. Lisa is a knockout and everyone at our party enjoyed her beautiful voice. A true class act.
Lisa was so fabulous to work with! Guest of all ages enjoyed her performance and more importantly she was so pleasant to work with. Lisa is a true professional and a great performer.
Lisa learned and performed two songs for my attendants and I to walk down the aisle to. She had to slow down one of the songs to fit the pace and it's now my favorite version of the song! She performed all of the ceremony songs on her acoustic guitar. It was beautiful! She then performed at the cocktail hour, our first dance song, and during dinner. She was absolutely magical! Lisa is definitely an amazingly talented young woman! She puts her heart and soul into her work! She's not only "the woman who sang at my wedding", she's a forever friend!
Lisa sang for us during cocktails and dinner for a wedding in St. Petersburg at the Lyceum. She was a pleasure to deal with every moment - from booking to the last note she sang for us. We had approx. 180 people, received many complements about what a nice addition Lisa was to the evening. She was enjoyable for all ages attending. We couldn't have made a better choice!
I had the pleasure of hearing Lisa sing for the first time a few years back and I was immediately a fan for life! Lisa has such poise and glamour when performing, and always extremely professional. Just a few months ago, she was kind enough to entertain at a charity event we held for a very special little girl. Lisa's heart is as big as her voice. She is someone who you will never forget once you meet and hear her sing, you will be telling everyone how wonderful she is!
Lisa is fabulously delightful, personally, professionally and wow she sounds wonderful! She performed at my venue NOVA 535 here in St. Petersburg, Florida several times and the crowd always begs for more. In fact we booked her for my brother's wedding and once again she was fabulous. Lisa is that rare breed of performer who you just can't get enough of. Book her early because there is only one Lisa Casalino!!
We had guest from 3 to 75 years old and each one left with a smile. A big thank you to Lisa and her band for a fabulous evening. Lisa was a pleasure to plan with and very accommodating. What a great sound to create a unique atmosphere to truly create an unforgettable event! Thank you Lisa for being a part of our special day.
I have booked Lisa Casalino multiple times for our events. She always dresses perfectly for the feel of the event and her beautiful voice ads so much to the experience for our guests! I wouldnt have and event without booking her! ~ Julie Weintraub
Lisa's talent was one of the highlights of our ceremony and reception! Having her perform acoustically as I walked down the aisle as well as a song during our ceremony added a perfect touch that was very much my Husband and I. Several attendees fell in LOVE with her voice as she continued singing throughout our reception! Her talent was the perfect compliment to our french-vintage inspired wedding! I would recommend her a million times over!
I first discovered Lisa on Tampabay's "Daytime" in August 2011 while she was promoting her CD release....a very fortunate discovery indeed! I was in the midst of planning my daughter's March 2012 wedding with an "Old Hollywood Glamour" theme and fate brought us Lisa Casalino! My deceased mother was a jazz standards singer and had produced an album with her bandmates just prior to her death - Lisa not only brought together the theme of the wedding with her melodic renditions of Jazz Standards and performed dressed as Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany's) but also help us incorporate my mom's music into the the evening as well! As if this wasn't enough she also performed current songs (of which she learned specifically for the ceremony) that my daughter and son-in-law requested (quite honestly in my opinion better than the original artist) all while playing her acoustic guitar! All evening our guests were asking where we found her and that her performance put the wedding "over the top"!
Lisa has a genuine love for what she does, who she shares it with and a commitment that is a rarity in anyone in this day and age. It's hard to believe that we did not know Lisa before August 2011 because she has become a part of our family!
Lisa Casalino.....The Good Stuff.....
What's not to love? Lisa has great vocal range, a superb book of standards and some incredible originals, and can light up any room. My only disappointment is she has only one album out and I don't get to Tampa as often as I would like.
Hired for our Corporate Christmas party - did an outstanding job - well received by all guests of all ages. Prompt - professional - and very classy.
Buried under an ever-growing avalanche of mediocrity in an art form that is less art and more form(ulaic) as time passes, Lisa Casalino is a great treasure yet to be discovered.
With a voice snipped from the same wavelength of Barbra Streisand and Billie Holiday, with a similar sassy, sultry stature, Lisa makes music that is hard to come by today. No doubt, her style is a throwback in American history, but it is as authentic today as it was in the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s.
I first heard Lisa entertain at a black-tie sports banquet in Tampa two years ago and a year later at her CD release party. Someone at the party asked me about the market for the style of music Lisa sings. My response then and now is that there should always be a market for a silky-smooth, heart-moving voice that throws the doors wide open, invites you in and lets you wander freely through every possible human emotion until you realize you can’t find your way out and you don’t want to go home anyway.
Despite what our contemporary society appears to crave, sophistication always will win the day over edgy and simply trashy. Lisa Casalino is a class act, and a true treasure yet to be discovered.
If you want a night of entertainment worth remembering, get out your treasure map and follow the big black X to Lisa’s next gig.
Amazing! Lisa's incredible voice, dynamic song choice, and great energy brought our reception to a whole new level. It wasn't just like doing business with Lisa, as she was truly excited for the two of us. She did a great job MC'ing as well. I have seen her perform at various venues throughout the Tampa area and her website is very helpful for getting to know her better (lisacasalino.com). Very classy and lots of charm!
Lisa Casalino is the complete entertainer for your private or public event. Any quick sampling will demonstrate her beautiful voice, tempo and range. Beyond that, she is experienced, professional/ repsonsible, versatile, perceptive, and very engaging.
As a fellow jazz musician, I know talent when I see (hear) it! Lisa is an awesomely gifted vocalist, who brings an outstanding repertoire, and a beautiful smile to her audience.

What to Expect
Any one who has seen Lisa Casalino perform will be highly entertained. Her energy and fun spirited character makes the simple performance a party. Lisa has the capability to act on her feet and take requests. Lisa also knows when to be part of the ambience and not take away or distract from a more intimate party, but to add to the experience as "background" music. Her professionalism and attention to detail always makes the client feel confident and secure that the entertainment they are expecting is what they receive.
Originally from Long Island, New York, and a graduate of the Crane School of Music, the dulcet sounds of Lisa Casalino’s voice have been serenading Tampa Bay for nearly two decades. It was music education that brought Lisa down to Tampa from New York as she was hired to be the Choral Music Director for a brand new high school. Miss Casalino opened that school and taught for eight years before she decided to become a full time musician. With beauty, charisma, stage presence and talent, Lisa is a darling “Songbird” and one of the most highly sought after Jazz Vocalists performing over 224 times in 2013 alone. Lisa's versatility to sing in many genres makes her the perfect match for any atmosphere, however it's her Jazz and Standards repertoire that have people coming back to see her time and again. Whether performing at jazz festivals, major charity events, or countless hotspots around the city, Lisa is the “it” girl and has all the characteristics of what a national and international singing sensation is!
Lisa Casalino’s second album “I’m Old Fashioned” will be released May 2014. This record consists of six original tunes co-written by Lisa Casalino and international jazz guitarist Nate Najar along with four jazz standards we all know and love. Miss Casalino’s melodies are reminiscent of Gershwin and her lyrics of Cole Porter. Witty, fun and diverse in styles, this record is one you will listen to over and over again. Lisa’s debut CD “Introducing Lisa Casalino” has had worldwide appeal on Jazz Stations, Satellite TV and Radio. It was a great springboard for multiple television performances on Daytime, Studio 10, and 6 in the Mixi. Three original tunes written, nine favorite standards with unique arrangements and top-notch jazz musicians recording at Nola Studios in NYC were a winning combination.
Since the release of Lisa’s first album she has graced the stages of The Clearwater Jazz Holiday in which Lisa opened for Chicago, Festa Italiana in Tampa opening for Joey Dee and Ybor City Jazz Festival to name a few. Lisa Casalino performed a one woman American Songbook show in front of over 8,000 fans at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, FL on July 4, 2011before the fire-works celebration. Miss Casalino has shared her talents on the stages of 54 Below, Etcetera Etcetera, and Birdland in NYC in 2013 as well as shared the stage with Mary J Blige and David Foster in a Christmas Concert for HSN. Top notch jazz musicians Nate Najar, Harry Allen, Kenny Drew Jr., Chuck Redd, Jon-Erik Kellso, Rossano Sportiello, Jeff Rupert and John Lamb, who played with Duke Ellington in his band, have recorded on Lisa’s records creating a sound unique and fresh, yet staying true to the classic renditions of the standards. Lisa Casalino is truly a woman who is an incredible example for grace, charm and professionalism
