ABOUT

My style is similar to Diana Krall's plus I sing some wicked blues!! I also write much of my own material. I am currently played on Jazzy103.com in Orlando, FL. To hear my music, visit: myspace.com/rigolaura. In a newspaper article written about me, I was referred to as "The Modern Day Mae West"......I mix standards, jazz, blues, classical, contemporary country, R&B, and write many of my own originals. Being somewhat of a flamboyant lady, one never knows what I might be wearing on any given night and outrageous hats are my trademark!! Being somewhat of a comedienne, I may very well stop in the middle of a song to tell a joke, a crazy story, always getting my audience involved! You might say..I'm a one woman show, one never knows what to expect. Most people consider me a ballad/torch singer and swear I sing with"black" soul. New customers are shocked to hear me sing and realize that I'm as Caucasian as they come!!! I can be reached 24/7 at (727) 484-2494 and welcome any and all types of musicians and styles!!
