Matt Barber
Oldies and Jazz from the 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond
Born in Peoria, IL, Matt took a deep interest in singing at the age of 10, listening to his father Mark, a radio announcer on 101.3 KUUL-FM in the Davenport, IA. Growing up, Matt enjoyed singing in choirs, in church, and was exposed to big band/jazz music through both of his grandmothers. Matt performed his first solo concert at the age of 16 and it was then that he decided he wanted to pursue his musical career. During high school, Matt began to hewn his craft by performing at various venues around the Midwest such as coffee houses, Borders Book Stores, and other small establishments. He performed music written and arranged by musician friend and drummer David Saelens. From attending school during the day and performing on a regular basis at night, he planned his first major US Tour. In 2005, during his senior year, Matt released “Let’s Keep In Touch,” a collection of original music by friend David Saelens, which Matt dedicated to his High School graduating class.
Since 2005, Matt has released “Romancing Nashville (2007)”, “Love Notes From Paradise (2009),” “It’s Been A Merry Christmas (2009)” and “The Masterpiece Collection (2011),” and “More Today Than Yesterday (2015),” with arrangements by Alan McPike, produced in Nashville, TN.
For the past 11 years, Matt has continued to put 110% into his work. Matt’s goal is to not only entertain but to also uplift and encourage as many people as possible.”
Matt’s show, “The Matt Barber Experience” consists of “fun, upbeat, and relaxing music from the heart,” providing an extensive repertoire of music, making for a fun, relaxing, and interesting experience for a romantic evening with that special person, or a fun night which you can bring your whole family to enjoy.

Lynn Cardona
jazz and bossa nova standards
Lynn Cardona, the Los Angeles based vocalist whose pretty, exotic looks and diaphanous, jazz-flavored voice makes it easy to go for the Norah Jones comparisons. Imagine instead Ani Difranco had she grown up on Sarah Vaughan records and hired the Roots for her back-up band.

Gretje lives in Los Angeles and performs nationally and internationally. A purist at heart, and working with the world’s top musicians, has solidified Gretje’s role as the darling of the underground jazz scene - where Jazz is Jazz.

Erin Bentlage + Jacob Mann
Jazz
Hailing from the green mountains of Vermont, Erin Bentlage writes, sings, and plays music with an unquenchable thirst for organic sound. Raised in a small town near the city of Burlington, she developed her love for emotional musical expression through ballet and classical piano lessons, and in high school found herself involved in any musical activity possible from performing as a singer and pianist to directing the school’s first a cappella group. She became the first vocalist to win the Vermont All State Jazz Scholarship in 2008 and 2009, which was also her first experience in jazz and improvisation. Though university studies tried to pull her towards the sciences at Boston University, she realized by the beginning of her sophomore year that she wanted to devote her life to music and transferred to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
During her time in Boston, Erin had the opportunity to learn from and perform with an outstanding variety of inspired musicians. She rediscovered her love for a cappella and vocal music with Joey Blake and the Singing Tribe (created by Bobby McFerrin) which launched her into an exploration in spontaneous composition and improvisation. She had recorded and performed with circle singing masters and creators WeBe3 (Joey Blake, Rhiannon Watson, David Worm). She simultaneously began to study jazz voice more seriously. She also studied songwriting and jazz composition to supplement her Contemporary Writing and Production major, which granted her a deeper exploration in arranging and composing in all genres as well as experience as a music producer and engineer.
Erin was awarded a Downbeat Student Award as a Vocal Jazz Soloist in 2014. She performed with the Berklee Vocal Jazz Ensemble at the 2014 JEN Conference, and has recorded and performed with rising jazz protégés Christian Li, Daniel Rotem, Albino Mbie, Ryo Konishi, and Drew Krasner. Erin has also appeared in the Burlington Jazz Festival, the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival, and First Night Burlington.
Erin currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, where she writes, performs, and teaches. With influences ranging from Laura Marling to Becca Stevens to Sarah Vaughan, Erin’s writing and performing creates a sound that will continue to grow from a place of joyful, honest expression.

Randi Cee
Jazz Swing Live Music
The songs Randi Cee sings can be called Jazz tunes. But they are so much more. These tunes were the pop songs of the day and run the gamut from sweet to saucy. The one thing they all have in common is they swing! Whether she is singing these songs in a nightclub, supper club, or jazz festival one thing becomes apparent she embodies the tune. It’s about telling the story and swinging that melody. As an audience member you are totally caught up in her stage presence.
Randi Cee has enjoyed (and still is enjoying) a successful career as a Los Angeles based Actor, Dancer and Singer. Her craft has allowed her the opportunity to travel the world, from a commercial shoot in Tokyo, to having a recurring role in The New Adventures of Robin Hood which shot in Lithuania, to dancing live at the Academy Awards, Randi has covered the globe.
Randi Cee, by her own admission, was “Ruined by MGM musicals”, As a small child she thought to act, sing, and dance must be the best way to go through life! To that end, Randi has had the opportunity to work with Directors as varied as Steven Spielberg, The Coen Brothers, Adam Shankman, Robby Marshall, and Joss Whedon.
For the last several years, she has been focusing her efforts on bringing the gems of the Early American Songbook to life. Inspired by time spent in New Orleans. Randi is thrilled to be part of the great tradition of singers who are keeping this music alive and well. Although “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, a good night of music is not! Not only does Randi bring her voice to the stage, but a personality and style that you’d swear just walked off the Back Lot! If it’s raining out and you should find her dancing and singing in the street, just smile and tip your imaginary hat!
