Description

I am currently performing with professional backing tracks. I use a computer, audio sound board, two large, but not too large, JBL speakers and a lot of schmaltz. Sometimes I wear my fathers Tux.

Gabe was all about letting me be the boss. He was very easy to talk with and super accommodating. He has a great voice and the crowd really loved him. His crooning set the tone for the whole evening. He had a technical glitch come up when he arrived but was so calm, cool, and collected I never worried a minute. He got everything worked out by show time and didn't break a sweat! A true show business professional.

Experience

I've been performing Frank Sinatra's music for 21 years. I've sung with the 'Atlanta Swing Orchestra',
'The Noteworthy Swing Band' and the 'Showband of the South'. Over the years the bands have
"dis-banded". I still, occasionally, perform with "live" musicians for 'one off' shows, but mostly I perform with the tracks. They never hit wrong notes or change tempo mid song. The audiences don't seem to mind the lack of a band and clients are happy not to spend extra for the band.

Previous Clients

I have performed at Theaters in Georgia, The Blue Ridge Theater in Blue Ridge, The Jasper Theater in Jasper Ga. , and The Holly Theater, Dahlonega, Ga.. N. Carolina at The Highlands Theater, S. Carolina The Walhalla Performing Arts Center, and a lot of others that I can barely recall. I've performed from New York to Key West. Only as far West as St. Louis.
