ABOUT

I'm currently in the studio recording old standards dating back 50 to 100 years, primarily versions by guys like Sinatra, Cole, Martin, Mathis, Darin, Elvis, Jack Jones, Andy Williams, etc. I've uploaded some here, though they are not mastered yet. The accompaniments are the best I can locate. Prior to Covid, was been busy entertaining older folks around the Rockies area. In Illinois, fronted an 18 piece swing band prior to my moving to Wyoming for work. Unfortunately there are no Swing/Big Bands nearby me, so I'm always looking for any local musicians who are looking for a lead singer. If anyone's interested, please feel free to write. I can be reached through Bandmix or "geno-d(at sign)alphasquirrelproductions(dot)com". Thanks. Ps. Started a channel at be, recording classic "live" big-band material from my basement. Also go by Geno-D there.
