Professional, upbeat, versatile singer and guitarist always ready to rock the crowd for any occasion!! Sandra's repertoire spans through the 20th and 21st Century of classic pop, rock, soul, motown, jazz and more. If you are looking to lively up your event with a singing guitarist, Sandra will do that for you and thensome!
Sandra performed as a duo, along with a trumpet player. Both were excellent, talented and my guests really enjoyed them! I received lots of compliments on my choice for entertainment. I have no regrets, and would consider hiring Sandra for future events.
Sandra was a pleasure to work with. She was easy to communicate with as well as being a great entertainer. She has a lovely voice and is a talented guitar player! I would highly recommend Sandra Small for your party. We loved her style her and so did the 98 people at our Thanksgiving Event! Thanks Sandra...can't wait until next time!
Response from Sandra Small Live:
Thank you Stephanie for your review. The party was lovely and I was glad to be there!!!
We invited Sandra and her band for our traditional mid-summer celebration at our venue in the Downtown area. While we usually have a happy crowd and band, this year Sandra hit it out of the ballpark! The energy and charisma she brings is beyond belief. From the moment their performance started, the energy and good vibes went up and up and up. At the end of the night most of the guests stayed around to enjoy a little more the beautiful evening Sandra and her band had delivered. In the following days the people who attended the party were still glowing and excited about her performance and asked us to invite her one more time. Long story short - Sandra and her band are the real deal - have them at your venue and I can guarantee you that you will be getting 100% awesomeness and a fantastic time!
We were so fortunate to have Sandra perform at a surprise 50th birthday party for my sister held in my backyard yesterday - she really brought the party to a whole other level, and I’ve received seven or eight phones calls today raving about her. She was so easy to work with - quick to respond, flexible and really focused on what the event called for. She’s got a beautiful singing voice - rich and soulful - and plays a dynamite guitar, using loops to add some really cool texture. Her songbook is extensive, and she does many styles really well - pop, classic rock, soul, reggae, modern R&B, Motown - you name it, she did it all really well. I also really enjoyed making her acquaintance - what a nice person! She is super positive and clearly performs with a passion and joy for making music that comes across loud and clear. I’d highly recommend her and would not hesitate to invite her back to any of my functions.
Response from Sandra Small Live:
Thank you George for your review. It's easy to perform when the vibes and people are awesome like yourself and family. Thank you for the opportunity to play and rock with you all at the party!! Kelly is awesome and I made a new friend! Thank you again for this awesome review. You are appreciated!
Sandra Small is the complete package. Wonderfully talented, sweetly personable and audience savvy- her musical abilities are as versatile as her repertoire. Sandra can charm and entertain an audience aged youth to 90+ (years old). Whether the program is a small intimate gathering or a large scale performance Sandra can do it all.
Sandra was simply awesome... we're a high-end furniture design company needing a quality musician to equal the level of our products in order to help us celebrate and showcase the release of our new designs to high-end clients, fashion and design editors and the like... it was an important event for us, and she excelled.
- Let alone did she execute exactly what we asked, but her sound, musicianship and charismatic nature were exceptional - everyone at the party went on-and-on about her... SUCCESS!!
- Highly recommend!
- Sandra performed with her guitar, a loop and amp and brought along her trumpet player (as for this event we had to keep them in tight space) and in addition to them sounding great, they looked great, were engaging, smiley and playful with our party-goers and simply were a hit... she's the real deal.
- Sandra was so easy to work with, highly professional and reliable, and I can't wait to hire her again, in fact, she mentioned that she could bring a drummer, another guitarist, etc. next time and I can only imagine how great her entire band would sound...
My band needed an opening act for about 2,000 people at a recent event and Sandra Small did not dissapoint! She used her pedalboard sort of like Ed Sheeran with really nice loops that she sang and played along to which provided a full sound and got the audience going. She also was very relaxed and engaging with the crowd who totally were mesmerized by her soulful performance. She packs a lot of personality and energy! She brings the positive vibes. Her song choices fit the mood perfectly. My advice is to book Sandra Small either with or without her band as soon as possible before one of her videos goes viral and she's on World Tour! Yes she's that good!
What to Expect
When performing as a solo act, Sandra has different variations to her performance. She can perform songs with her acoustic guitar which brings a very natural sound of voice and guitar. She also performs with her looping pedal which adds another dynamic of building a song live with beat making from her guitar and ab libbing guitar to build a full song to any song. Sandra is very engaging and make the audience feel united with her and the performance.
