SEEKINGVocalist - Soprano, Acoustic Guitar, Violin, Piano, Vocalist - Alto, Cello.
My name is Arnie Abrams and I'm a pianist and booking agent in central New Jersey.
I have pianists, acoustic guitarists, jazz guitarists, violinists, horn players, as well as other musicians and vocalists on the roster that do gigs for me.
I’m always looking for some good musical artists to join my organization. I'm currently gearing up the roster for the holidays. If you are interested in picking up some solo, duo or trio work for local wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, private parties, holiday celebrations and other decent paying gigs, please read on.
Hopefully you might have some demos on your Bandmix profile, but if there is no audio on your profile, please direct me to any Youtube links or websites that contain some of your work.
Also, please let me know the types of music and artists you like to perform. Most of our musicians have some experience with the Great American Song Book (Gerswhwin, Cole Porter, Sinatra-esque standards) as well as knowing some of the standards and some 60's/70's/80's light rock (Billy Joel, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Eagles, Chicago, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, Carly Simon, Roberta Flack, etc...). We also have a need for classical musicians as well.
If this sounds like your type of music, this opportunity may be something you might be interested in. FYI, for musicians, vocals are definitely not required, but if you can do some, your number of gigs will expand dramatically.
Interested parties can contact me over this Bandmix site or through my email at arnie@ArnieAbramsPianist.com, or via phone at (732) 995-1082.
