Max began playing piano at the age of 7 and started performing in his early teens. He immersed himself in music and, in particular, developed a love of the Italian/American swing legends and the timeless jazz standards of the great American songbook.
His love of swing started at home, where the soundtrack to family gatherings featured That's Amore and Volare, all sung by the family, with gusto! His appreciation for 'proper' music grew as he discovered the great vocalists and pure style of the Rat Pack. After meeting Harry Connick, Jnr in the late 90s, he was inspired by the big band sound which shaped his performance style appreciated by many today.
Max has performed as a solo artist in some of the most iconic venues in London, as well as beautiful locations along the Amalfi coast and across Italy. In recent years, he has been invited to feature as a guest vocalist with a 16-piece big band across the north west USA.
All backing tracks are high quality recordings of big band orchestras which create a truly authentic sound. Max uses the iconic Shure SH55 mic which provides warm clear vocals and looks the business!
The PA setup is highly flexible to cater for any venue. Max can plug in to a house PA or provide a powered speaker system, complete with Bass Speaker where required, generally suitable for audiences up to 300 people. Larger systems can be provided for outdoor or larger venues. Lighting is also available to give a variety of effects and create a great atmosphere.
