ABOUT

Hello My Name is Carl Anthony,
I am Looking for a NEW PARTNER OR PARTNERS that Must Have Booking Connections for $PAID PRIVATE OLDIES-Standards GIGS$ in the Senior Entertainment Communities in and around the Philadelphia, PA. areas [NO BARS]. My NEW PARTNER or NEW PARTNERS could be a Professional Mature Male Singer, a DJ, a Mature Professional Female Lead Singer that sings Oldies and Standards or a Mature Musician that plays one of these instruments: Guitar, Sax, Trumpet, Keys or Drums. Any of These instruments would blend in with the Backing-Tracks. The Important thing is that This New Partner Must Have Booking Connections for $PAID PRIVATE OLDIES-Standards GIGS$ in the Senior Entertainment Communities in a around the Philadelphia, PA. areas. Example: [Senior Dances - Senior Private Parties - Senior Nursing Homes -- ETC. Performing: OLDIES and the Great STANDARDS - I would be willing to share the Front with another Male Lead Singer providing that they could Book the ACT in the Proper Venues - I do not have the time to look for $Paid Gigs$ for seniors. Experience tells me that Seniors do not like to pay a lot for live music because they can get a DJ for $100. That's why I am looking for that special partner that has the Senior Connections needed to get what little paying work there is for an Act that caters to Seniors that are over 60 yrs. of age.
I am a Pro Lead Singer and I use Musical Multi Midi Backing-Tracks for the Act.

I am looking for a NEW PARTNER OR PARTNERS that must have talent and must have $Paid Private Oldies and Standards Gigs$ or Booking Connections to get [$$Paid Private Oldies Gigs$$] in the Senior Entertainment Markets in: Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Philly, Bucks and Montgomery Counties - [NO BARS] - I do not work alone
I use Multi Midi Backing-Tracks for Hundreds of Hit Oldies but Goodies: [Oldies - Standards - DooWop] which include: The Great Standard Hits that the Big Vegas Stars performed like: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr. ETC. -The Hits that the Fabulous Doo Wop groups performed like: The Duprees, The Skyliners, Little Anthony and the Imperials ETC. and the Fast and Slow Hits of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s -
My NEW PARTNERS JOB: will be to have or look for Paid Oldies Gigs in the Senior Entertainment Market, perform and learn their parts, and help me to carry, setup, and take down all of my LIVE SOUND and Reproduction Amplifiers, Speakers, Keyboards, Microphones, and Laptop Computer Sequencing Equipment.

My JOB: is to learn my Lead Singing parts, and Maintain on a continual basis, the Background Backing Tracks for The ACT, and to purchase any electronic equipment we may need to be The BEST ACT that we can be.

A Side Note to DJ's: This Oldies Act could be even more Popular if my NEW PARTNER were to be a DJ - because working with a DJ would let me to be able to perform to a broader audience - The DJ could play any kind of music that may be requested from someone in the audience young or Old. I would perform LIVE and sing the Oldies but the DJ could play any kind of music that was requested. I think this kind of an Act would be a HIT - However the audience would have to have a majority of Seniors in it to appreciate the Oldies ACT - "Why hire just a DJ when YOU have your next Oldies Event when YOU can get a DJ and LIVE OLDIES ENTERTAINMENT for the same price?" Just an IDEA that I have - If YOU ARE a DJ an Have booking Connections in the right venues and would like to AD a Professional Singer with Backing Tracks to YOUR ACT -- Always Email Me AT: Y---A---H---O---O--- Dot Com

I like to Mix LIVE MUSICIANS/SINGERS with the Backing-Tracks FOR ENTERTAINMENT and REALISM for the audience so that the performance IS NOT CONSIDERED a KARAOKE ACT

This is a perfect opportunity for a 55+ Musician who has connections with any senior organizations that have Senior Monthly Dances or parties for anniversaries and Birthdays and does not have a Good Band to work with. Join up with me and the 2 of us can handle any Senior Event that needs entertainment: The Oldies but Goodies, DooWop, Polkas, Jewish Favorites, Line Dancing and the Great Standards and Big Band Musical Hits for their enjoyment.

ATTENTION!!! ******* Musicians and Female Singers call me to work with me but they do not have any work or the work that they have, is not in the proper venues. The ACT is geared for a 55+ Senior Audience at Private Events. Example: Saturday Night Dances at the Moose, Masons, Elks, Knights of Columbus, American Legions, Senior Community Dances and Anniversaries and Birthday Parties for Seniors where the clients rents a hall and expects 100 to 300 people to attend to listen and dance to the music that they grew up on.

The ACT is also not geared to be in a corner of a restaurants dining room with people eating their dinner and talking 5ft. away from the ACT, the music is too loud for that. Most of the songs have 16Tracks of sound and the arrangements are geared for a 55+ Dancing Audience coming out of a Large Professional Sound System to give realism and dancing pleasure for the Audience. Only apply if YOU have TALENT and YOU can get Paid Oldies Gigs performing the OLDIES, DOOWOP, and STANDARDS in these local counties: MERCER, BURLINGTON, CAMDEN, PHILLY, BUCKS and MONTGOMERY counties for the proper venues. [NO BARS] THANK YOU, Carl Anthony


My LEAD VOCALS, MUSICAL BACKING TRACKS and PROFESSIONAL AMPLIFICATION SOUND EQUIPMENT is all YOUR BAND/ACT is missing to have a Ten Piece Band Sound and to be a GREAT ACT.

My Current Act is Geared for a Senior Audience - My New Partner or Partners must have talent and must have $Paid Gig Connections$ in the Senior Entertainment Market - If YOU have $Paid Gigs$ in the [Oldies - Standards - DooWop] Senior Entertainment Market in my area
[NO BARS]
STOP! LOOKING FOR MORE MUSICIANS TO COMPLETE YOUR ACT.

If you have TALENT and $Paid Booking Connections$ in the proper Senior Entertainment Venues - Call Me [NO BARS] - Maybe we could work together to create a New Act for the Senior Communities.

With my Multi Musical Backing Tracks, and my Lead Singing ability you will Have Less Drama and You Will Make More Money - Have a Bigger Fuller Sound with a SMALLER GROUP because of the Electronic Wonder of Multi BackingTracks. - Most of the Hits Songs have a least 16 Tracks of Sound with all instruments covered.
