About this pro
Whether it's a wedding reception, corporate event, fundraiser or private party, Dale Fetick performs popular music from the big band era that will entertain all age groups and keep your guests dancing the night away! He specializes in Sinatra, Michael Buble, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, and other great performers from that era, as well as soft jazz/soft rock selections from artists, such as Billy Joel, James Taylor, The Beatles, and others. His smooth jazz voice is second to none as he sings love songs with "straight from the heart" emotion. Whether you want intimate ambiance or a big band presentation, Dale performs solo with piano accompaniment or professional tracks, with a jazz trio, a quintet, or a full 16 to 18-piece big band. He can satisfy any budget.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I begin attending private lessons in music theory and sight singing in January 2013 at the Musical Arts Center under the direction of Lincoln Chapman who received his Master of Music from University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music, where he studied voice with Andrew White and opera with Italo Tajo and Malcolm Fraser. He made his professional debut with the Cincinnati Opera in Schwanda the Bagpiper, and has performed with Opera Columbus, Syracuse Opera, The Spoleto Festival, Florida Arts Celebration, the Melbourne-Spoleto Festival and Her Majesty's Theater (Australia), Charlestown Symphony, and the Cincinnati Symphony, among others. Upon completion of the theory and sight singing sessions, I will continue to attend sessions for vocal performance.

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Meet with your performer in person to make sure they are professional and organized. Ask for references or if there is a public event that you could actually attend to see the performer in action.
