augustrush 56 years old female West Palm Beach, FL member since 2014
I formed my first band in middle school to play the dances. I have worked professionally since I was 19 with top 40 show bands on the road in the 80's and 90's. I began working for Freddy Montilla, currently Fjm Productions in South Florida, then Contemporary Artists Management out of Orlando at Venues all over the country, and Ted Skorman with Xtc in the later 80's. I sang country music in Nashville and played locally then on the road with Top 40 band traveling all of southern to early 90's, then Boston show/wedding bands performing at high end hotels, corporate parties, and weddings through to 2003. My last band was the Whitehouse band out of Fort Myers in 2010. I have opened for larger bands such as the Nitty Gritty Dirt band and other country music bands while in Nashville. I am currently a college English professor, but am anxious to get back in front of an audience again. I am a high energy entertainer that sings and dances at the same time getting people from audience to dance with me. I have a wonderful rapport with my audience and everyone has a great time. My vocal range is quite wide having done the majority of songs in the original keys singing from Tina Turner to Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion. I am versed in show tunes, jazz, blues, dance, and rock. Music keeps everyone young!
I grew up with the Moody Blues, Beatles, and loving "Yes" and Jon Anderson having older brothers when I was very small. I loved Olivia Newton John and was hired to impersonate her in a Country Star Spectacular with Gabe Garland at 19. Other influences were Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynes, Heart, Pat Benetar, Melissa Etheridge, Patsy Cline, Barbra Streisand, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and Sarah Mclachlan, and Linda Ronstadtmany more.
I had a wireless Surebut the last few bands all had their own equipment. I would purchase again.
