    Heather Normandale Music

    (13 reviews)

    I put my whole heart into my music. The songwriting process for me is a deep and therapeutic process of self reflection and thoughtful commentary on life transformed into a more uplifting message of encouragement and love. I imbue my music with intention to make the world a better place. Being good at it. I'm happy to have held my aspirations in music high enough that I always have something to aspire to, but reachable enough that I actually have continued to develop and grow over the years. I love doing something that makes other people happy too.

    The Mike & Carolynn Band

    (4 reviews)

    The first thing that differentiates us from other duos is the quality of our vocals. Carolynn's vocals can be easily considered as good as singers like Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks and all of the current female country singers. We spend a lot of time working on the BLENDING for our harmonies. Any two people can sing two different notes that should provide a pleasing harmony, but it takes talent, training and experience singing together to do it well. We have been singing together for 40 years and our harmonies tend to stand out. Also, most bands seem to believe that their music alone is enough for a live performance. The truth is that all of us have very easy access to perfect, flawless music in our homes, cars or portable devices. We work hard on our music, just like anyone else, but we also put a lot of effort into "the live performance". We make a special effort to connect with our audiences as this is the key to providing a positive experience for the audience. They feel they are part of what's going on, as opposed to sitting at home watching a performance on TV. This is why all of us go to live concerts, even though we have the CD (or digital media) and have the songs hundreds of times! We all still like to be a part of the musical energy and experience, and Carolynn and I do this better than just about anyone. I believe music is the physics of human emotion and the part we enjoy the most is taking the message expressed in a song and passing that emotional and life message along to others. Sometimes we do songs that have a funny message but the theme is still the same. So being involved in the interaction with the audience is the thing we like the most. Some people are merely "Musicians", and they are musical geniuses, and they do very well in a vanilla, studio-like environment. We add audience involvement and interaction to create a special atmosphere that is rare in live music today. Modern performers tend to rely upon fancy lighting, fire, swinging through the air and other fancy special effects to create a positive entertainment atmosphere. We use our talent and ability to connect with other human beings, and this make our job fun.

    MAX CRUISE Band

    Campbell's Jazz Soup

    (2 reviews)

    Campbell's Jazz Soup is a Marin County based band that plays a fun blend of 1920s, 30's, 40's, and 50's jazz and swing at events, parties, and receptions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Leader Brian Campbell serves up a tasty stew of hot clarinet, swinging saxophone, and hearty vocals. Mixed in to provide a feast for the ears is bluesy guitar and driving string bass. We play everything from mellow background jazz to upbeat danceable swing. The band can perform with up to seven members by including trumpet, piano, drums, and/or trombone. Our most popular sizes are the trio (composed of sax/clarinet/vocals, guitar, and bass), the quintet (add trumpet and piano or drums to the trio), and the sextet (add trumpet, piano, and drums to the trio). If you want to dance, we highly recommend hiring our quintet or sextet. For close to two decades, we've played many events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including weddings, festivals, parties, and corporate affairs. For more info, to contact us, and to get additional audio samples please go to our website.
