Introduction: I am a professional singer, actor, voice teacher, and the Artistic Director for a local theatre non-profit. My background is in opera and musical theatre performance. I have a great voice, a cheerful disposition, and an excellent reputation for lifting people's spirits. I know about a million pop songs and showtunes - ie. Michael Jackson, Broadway classics, and almost all of the Disney collection! OR I can sing a fun medley that includes birthday songs, i.e., Today is Your Birthday, I Will Survive, and Happy Birthday Baby. Other pop-icon medley's I have recently sung for clients, include Cindy Lauper and Dean Martin. If there's something specific you want to say about the recipient, I can personally tailor a fun detail or two about them into my shtick. If you are getting flowers, a gift, a card, or balloons for your special someone, I would be happy to present them for you as part of my performance. I can also provide balloons, flowers, glitter, confetti, etc. for a small fee. The opportunity to bring a smile to someone's face, the looks of happy surprise, and the knowledge that I'm helping create a wonderful memory. And the Glitter and the Glamour, of course! 8/1/2017 I just finished singing my first 'apology telegram', commissioned from one best girlfriend for another. The recipient was so moved, it was all tears and hugs.

I would have selected all five choices as to what I liked about working with Ben(Work quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value and Punctuality). Ben was fantastic! From start to finished product it was a great experience. He is very easy to work with and helps you every step of the way. His original lyrics montage he put together was the best! He utilized the information I gave to him in every part of his song. Completely impressed and could not be happier with the outcome. I will definitely be calling him again. Give him a call, you will be glad you did.

He is AMAZING! I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely be using his services again. I can't wait to find an excuse to send a singing telegram! He went to my mother's work for her retirement and put on a great show. He was able to get there in the early hours I needed and composed a group of songs special for my mom. The price was more than acceptable and he couldn't have been nicer. Thank you a million times Ben. He will be hearing from me again!

Ben did an outstanding job. We hired him to deliver a singing telegram for our colleague's birthday. We ordered a balloon and Ben picked it up on his way over. He was professional, punctual, communicative, easy to work with, and delightfully entertaining. I'd definitely hire him again.

He showed up and sang his heart out! On a whim I asked Ben to surprise my dear friend on her birthday with a singing telegram. He showed up at my best friend's house at 7 am on a Monday morning dressed in fine attire and boldly sang a montage of my friend's inspirational favorites, including I Will Survive! "Best gift EVER!," she said. I would highly recommend Ben for any random performance endeavor! So much fun!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a flat rate of $45, plus any gratuity my client deems appropriate. Balloons, flowers, confetti, etc. are available for a small additional fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After getting the details (occasion, date, time, etc.) it's time for the fun part- I find out what song(s) my client wants, any desired customization's, and any extras such as flowers or balloons. As the date approaches I touch base and check in for any last minute changes or additions. An average telegram usually lasts about a minute and a half - the perfect length as it can become difficult for folks to keep an expression of surprise on their face much longer! :) I also can personalize and mix as many as 3, or sometimes 4, songs together for a fun mash-up.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've studied classical voice both privately and at Tanglewood University, as well as acting at Hayward State and Shakespeare Santa Cruz. I have appeared in numerous productions at Cabrillo Stage Professional Musical Theatre, and I am now Artistic Director for Santa Cruz Performing Arts. I enjoy leading the family sing-alongs at the Rio Theatre that have included the Sound of Music, Grease, Mary Poppins, and the Wizard of Oz, and the Yellow Submarine.
