What to Expect
Quite simply, our clients can expect elegant and timeless music. The jazz is very melodic and traditional in the sense of early Frank Sinatra (think Tommy Dorsey and Columbia Years) as well as Nat King Cole. Listen to the clips and hear for yourself.
Vito is available for all private functions from Cocktail Hours to corporate, holiday and engagement parties. He can play your piano or bring his own full-sized digital piano and amp. You can choose from instrumental only (Jazz Piano) or both (Jazz Piano and Vocals). With over 15 years of experience, Vito knows exactly the type of mood and music to provide for the festivities.
