Amanda Castro is a young jazz singer specializing in well known and lesser known songs of the 1920's and 1930's, adding her own unique mix of Latin rhythms, New Orleans soul, and genuine blues feeling. She started studying voice at the age of 15 and has been singing professionally for the last two years, appearing in some of Southern California's most well known jazz clubs, including Angel's, Nola's, The Hip Kitty, and now Steamers. In addition, Amanda has also appeared as a feature performer at community music festivals and other entertainment events. Audiences at an Amanda Castro performance have said, "It's not just a band! It's a show!" And a show it is!
Combining high energy musical performance with witty audience rapport and exciting band arrangements, Amanda makes the stage come alive with her own renditions of down and dirty New Orleans blues, sultry Latin songs and straight ahead swinging standards. Consisting of professional jazz musicians with performance experience at international jazz festivals, film, television, Disneyland, and high profile celebrity gigs, the highly versatile band is equally adept at grooving on a Latin samba as much as treating the audience to a taste of authentic New Orleans. Fans of the Amanda Castro show keep returning for the exciting mixture of great jazz styles offered up by this up and coming singer. Amanda and the band invite you to come experience a fun and entertaining jazz show!
