"novaЯ" - is the only opera singer in the world, who plays laser harp. The unique show includes live laser beams playing (since the laser harp is primarily a real music instrument), charming opera vocal, luminous costumes and video-projection. The soloist who plays the laser harp is a professional opera singer (Olga Rossi). Her charming voice sounds in soundtracks of the TV-project «High Life», “HD Fashion TV», «Madrid Fashion Week». Another fetching girl takes part in the show in a duet with the opera diva. The girl has a higher music education (drummer, playing electronic drums; saxophonist, or violoncello).
The key difference of «novaЯ» from other laser shows is that the frontwoman does not repeat the moves of laser beams which are created beforehand, she practically plays the laser beams, since the laser harp is primarily a music instrument. Every beam corresponds to a certain note, and thanks to MIDI-controller, which is connected to the...

Hello, my name is Gloria, I’m organizing the party for my son’s birthday. That will occur in Pony Palace Parties on June 26. So here I’d like to hire guitarist able to capture children’s attention. As well I need your prices. Thanks.
My purpose is to handle with my granny’s fussy taste, so help me please to find a great pianist. Actually it’s the anniversary party for her and my granpa. There will be 60 people (18-75 age range). The venue is Summer Lodge, which is booked on June 30. I’ll appreciate for your quick answer.
Hi - Im looking for an acoustic band / soloist preferable grass roots, USA country or similar - prefer male voice or group. We are having a small garden wedding reception. This is a surprise for my fiance :-)
Hello, my niece is turning 11 in a month, so we are planning to make a party for her and her friends in Princess Pamper Parties, and a harpist will be the most appropriate for that occasion. Could you please organize it in a good way.
I work for a PR agency in Poole and we are organising an 18th anniversary beach BBQ on Sandbanks beach, which will take place on Thursday 30 June from 6pm to 9pm and we are currently looking for musical entertainment.
As we will be on the beach I am looking for musicians who do not require a power supply. It would be good to find out about an acoustic guitar and vocalist duo.
church wedding reception, require bagpiper to play bride down the aisle, them play bride and groom back up the aisle and then play for a few moments as the guest are leaving the church, church ceremony will start at 2pm and end at 3pm
Retirement do. Doing wareham river cruise. We would like some bagpipes played at wareham quay when the boat arrives around 7pm to play a few popular tunes for a Scottish nurse who is leaving poole hospital to retire to Scotland
Outdoor ceremony next to a lake under a rotunda. Looking for accompanying song while walking down the aisle and then during the drinks reception. Hopping that the drinks will be outdoors weather permitting, but if the British weather hits, we have a marquee.
50th Birthday - 30 people - private house - need incidental music...then something a little more engaging.. so actually the request may be a little wrong... could do with 6 till 12 with a break for dinner... say 4 hour set............
Steve is amazing. I totally messed up giving him directions to where our party was and in the end sent someone to a previously booked venue to see if he was there. He had waited for us and had practically been ringing around the whole of Hereford to find us. He gave us the offer to back out but I really wanted him to sing. Despite all the fuss and mix up he was so professional, just got on with it and gave a tremendous show. Because we were a bit late starting some of our guests had already left when he started but he still gave it his all, he gelled fantastically with the audience and went down a total storm. Even my 16 year old son thought he was great. I really really couldn't recommend Steve enough. Top guy, professional but warm and friendly, amazing performer. 5*
We would like to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding reception at the The Red Brick Barn on the 24th June. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and it made our evening. Joe is brilliant at was he does and we would highly recommend.
