Charlie Romo is a native New Yorker and grew up in a community and family with strong character which has reinforced in him a style that has served him on stage. He studied music at Wagner College and has performed on the same stage and in shows with Usher, Chita Rivera, and Ben Vereen at venues like The Friars Club, David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center, and the Internationally acclaimed Metropolitan Room in New York City.
Charlie is in his 20s and yet totally confident, comfortable and at home on both small and very large stages. His captivating body language, radiant smile, personal warmth and pitch-perfect technical mastery reveals his fresh, new, exciting talent that profoundly engages, energizes and mesmerizes his audience at every show. Charlie has an avid passion for, and a unique interpretation of recognizable renditions of popular standards from the 1950s and 1960s. He revives this music and style of a previous era in a dynamic and refreshing way. With intense excitement and enthusiasm, Charlie has a way of turning back the clock, without imitation, and like a kindred spirit, he embodies and channels the soul and sound of these cherished legends, the likes of Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, and Bing Crosby. Typically, his audiences respond in a wildly enthusiastic fashion as he brings back the romance, flair, subtlety, and the longing of the music that played through a smoky, satiny generation of courtship, club-going and dancing.
Charlie Romo is always joined by world-class musicians. Charlie's musicians have worked with dozens of top artists, including Frank Sinatra, Eartha Kitt, Judy Collins, Barbra Streisand, and Tony Bennett. Bobby Darin at the world-famous Copacabana in 1960 and Charlie Romo have both been accompanied by Ronnie Zito on drums.
Charlie was the recipient of Broadway World's 2016 Best Debut Artist Award. Charlie was also a finalist in the 2017 NYC Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs Awards for Best Male Debut Artist. Charlie is the youngest member ever to be inducted into the legendary Friars Club in New York City.
Soprano, COLETTE BOUDREAUX has been praised for her "richly beautiful instrument - supple, silvery in tone, technically secure, and dramatically convincing" (Classical Voice of North Carolina). With an impressive ability to connect to audiences in an extensive range of characters, Boudreaux's performances have been called "sensitive" and "commanding" (David Shengold, Opera Magazine), "saucy; playfully vamping, yet serenely professional" (Knoxville Magazine) and "expressive... holding the audience completely engaged" (Biltmore Beacon).
