Jodi Keogan and Mark Watson, both seasoned opera singers and cross-over artists guarantee to bring Broadway to life for you in their performances. They perform the most beloved musical selections from the classic Great American Songbook, as well as scintillating selections from present Broadway shows. Their vocal agility allows them to sing a great range of songs and duets and their commitment to capture their audiences of all ages makes them a unique duo.
Jodi Keogan was a pleasure to work with for the 2017 Relay for Life of Naples. Not only is she a sincere and wonderful person, her voice is spectacular. Her rendition of the National Anthem was enjoyed by every participant at our event. I look forward to the opportunity of seeing her full show in the near future.
Response from Op to Pop:
The honor of being asked to perform for such a worthy cause reminds me that there is still much kindness in the world. The honor was all mine. To hear the National Anthem, copy and paste the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZSka7m5uOQ&feature=youtu.be
Op to Pop's Jodi Keogan was a pleasure to work with and provided a wonderful evening of my wife's favorite tunes. Jodi has an unbelievable operatic voice and pleasant personality that made for a memorable evening. I highly recommend Jodi and Op to Pop!

What to Expect
Whether the choice of performance is Opera or Broadway, the audience will never be disappointed in the selection of music that we choose. We tailor each performance to the request of the client and ovations are the norm. For Broadway, we select from the Great American Songbook, Broadway and the Silverscreen and are always adding more repertoire to our song list. In venues that are more engaging and not too formal, we take requests and are most often able to accommodate the requests. If in a restaurant environment, we walk around the tables to engage the guests and communicate with them through music. We aim to enhance the dining experience. If in a more formal setting, our attire is more formal with gown and tuxedo unless otherwise requested of the client. We love what we do and this shows in our performances.

Ms. Keogan has musical collaborations with Mark Janas, David Shenton, David Harris, Seth Weinstein, and Lloyd Abriola, all from the New York Metropolitan area
“L’ottima interpretazione degli artista ha evidenziato la carateristica forza dello musiche Verdiane, la dolcezza di quelle Pucciniane, e la delicate religiosita della musiche di Mozart e Handel”
The ultimate interpretations are realized by this artist who displayed the characteristic power of Verdi’s music, the sweetness of Puccini’s music, and the delicate religious nature of Handel and Mozart’s music.

Additional Booking Notes
When we perform for a large audience whether indoor or outdoor, we prefer to use lavalieres as microphones which gives us more breadth in our movement/acting out the songs (we own the lavalieres, but need the amplifiers to plug in to). We would need sound equipment, piano (in tune), and lighting for large venue. For more intimate venues such as restaurant or country club, just piano and perhaps sound equipment, depending on the size of the venue and the acoustics.

Influences & Inspiration
We are always changing the format of our performances so the challenge is always part of the adrenaline rush. When an audience "whoos and hoots and yells 'bravo' or 'encore'," that allows us to know that we have selected the right pieces and have done a great job. I have to say that when the client/audience is satisfied, that has the most impact on us.
Sound equipment such as amplifiers, lighting, piano, sound engineer (if needed)
