My name is Amy Foster, and I am a San Francisco bay area musician offering a bouquet of entertainment services for both corporate and social events and celebrations.
As the Entertainment Services Manager for Hornblower Cruises and Events since 1995, I have planned, organized and entertained at thousands of events (click for a list of recent events at which I have performed). I provide the following services.
Vocalist / Pianist
I sing in two musical environments:
- I'm the front singer and MC for the CITY BEAT DANCE BAND. Our versatile repertoire ranges from Jazz standards to Motown, Oldies, Funk, Disco, Rock, New Wave, Latin, Country, and Contemporary music.
- In addition to the band, I also play solo piano, and sing about half that repertoire. Sample Vocal repertoire includes songs from artists such as: Norah Jones, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, Diana Krall, Roberta Flack, the Gershwins, Macy Gray, Carol King, Stevie Wonder, Shania Twain, Christina Aguilerra, and Pink. I also play Classical Piano, including Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Debussy, Satie, Chopin
Whether you're setting the tone of elegant jazz and classical music, or mixing it up with current hip hop and disco, I'll jump-start your party, customized to your personal tastes. I have extensive experience with weddings, corporate events, bar and bat mitzvahs, high school prom and grad nights. I am also an experienced Master of Ceremonies ("MC"). My CD collection includes the latest pop and R&B Hip Hop, plus a huge selection of Disco, Motown, Rock and Roll, funk, New Wave, Latin (Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Banda), Country, House, Classic and Smooth Jazz and Classical music. All of my CDs are "Radio Edited" with no foul language!
Every event is special, and unique. That said, I have planned and coordinated hundreds of events, from intimate dinners to weddings to corporate parties. I know which vendors to use (and not use!) for flowers, photography, videography, cakes, decor, and, of course, music!
