Ismael Gabasau

Born:

Ismael Gabasau, singer-songwriter and optimistic painter, released his debut EP "The Art of Seeing Through". The nature of his writing follows the trail of memories and emotions that are influenced by Jazz, Bossanova, and Funk. He crafts songs that depict his outlook on life, his admiration for nature, his affection for loved ones, and his value for liberty.

Ismael wrote his first song "Sour and Sweet" while he was painting a copper butterfly on a blue background. Initially, he had no intention of writing a song, as the painting was his medium of choice to convey the sorrow and confusion he felt after losing his uncle during the pandemic. However, upon completing the painting, the phrase "Life... life... life..." popped into his head and evolved into a melody. He then proceeded to pen lyrics that spoke of his resilience in overcoming life's challenges and finding joy amidst pain.

Fred de Jong

Born:

Who is Fred de Jong?

If you're in Aruba and are into Frank Sinatra and material broadly defined as the "American Songbook", you want to head to one of the Aruba Sinatra Shows and catch Fred de Jong singing and performing as "Mr. Sinatra" in the prime of his life. Music that will bring back memories and emotions that you forgot you had within you!

Izaäk Franciscus (Fred) de Jong , pronounced "The Young", was born on August 7th, 1963 in Strijen in the Netherlands and moved to Aruba in 1997.

You'll soon discover that Mr. de Jong understands and loves this material and has worked very hard to capture the phrasing and mannerisms of "old blue eyes." No small feat for any entertainer ... especially one who is European!

Max Marinaio

Born:

Compositore, chitarrista, cantante iscritto alla SIAE sin dal '90. Attualmente compone ed arrangia i propri brani scrivendo tutte le parti strumentali (contrabbasso, piano, strumenti a fiato e quant'altro).
Inizia a suonare sin da piccolo formandosi sulla chitarra classica come autoditatta e sviluppando uno stile ed un tocco personali. Poco interessato all'aspetto puramente performativo inizia ben presto a comporre materiale proprio sia sulla chitarra che su una pianola elettrica sostanzialmente blues, soul, bossanova e canzoni jazz.
Crea la prima band a 22 anni ma dedica del tempo a imparare la scrittura musicale per iscriversi alla SIAE e proteggere i propri brani.
Negli anni 90 crea il proprio sistema midi che gli consente di sviluppare le proprie doti di arrangiatore.
Inizia a pubblicare nei primi anni 2000. Nel 2005 Fonda i Flying Cats con cui arriva alla finale del Pistoia Blues In.
Nel 2008 acquista un basso semiacustico che usa soprattutto nelle registrazioni in studio.

Maryanne Reall

Whether it's jazz, blues, a French tune or a sly “tongue in cheek” pop tune, critics, fans and musicians agree that vocalist Maryanne Reall has a distinctive way of taking you on an intimate adventure with her innate musicality, warm mellifluous tone, subtle caressing of each lyric and tastefully selected repertoire. A native New Englander, music has always been Maryanne’s passion. This passion and her dream to live in ‘California’, inspired by Joni Mitchell’s song, were both realized back in the 90’s. Since then, she’s appeared at countless venues from clubs and festivals to some of L.A.'s top jazz rooms including the world-renown Catalina Jazz Club, the World Stage Performance Gallery and the Southern California Jazz Festival
