I love bringing music to people through entertainment.
Although my passion is Musical Theatre and the conveyance of a message with song. I have now channeled this passion into a wide range of song genre. As well as performing with Tauranga Musical Theatre.
I have sung in various Service Clubs, Retirement Villages, numerous recitals, Rest homes, Soirees, Friends of Baycourt solo concerts, restaurants, private functions and other occasions requiring entertainment. I also sing with The Scholars Pro Musica Choir.
I have available samples of play lists for each genre. I provide my own sound system adequate for an average size room. I do need to be able to set up prior to the evening, this involves doing a sound check. While I do use backing tracks I am prepared to sing to an accompaniment (after rehearsal).
I offer six distinct genre of entertainment.
Easy listening Jazz/Blues Cabaret
Musical Theatre – Broadway Belles
Everybody’s Favourites – sing-a-long including Country & Western
Italian Songs – I have sung at Volare Restaurant, Tauranga and at the opening of La Spuntino, an Italian pizzaria and Mediterranean cafe.
Popular classical songs / Popera
French Chanson – Featuring songs of Edith Piaf. I sang at Café Versailles, an authentic French restaurant with French owners/chefs, on a regular professional basis from May 2006 to January 2010.
“The Women’s Business Web Committee engaged Jan Beets as our “entertainment” at our Annual Christmas party in December 2008.
Jan had discretely set up and began her session of background music as the evening began, and gradually drew us all in to some revelling and singing carols, which we all enjoyed.
Her style was professional and friendly, and of a great variety. We especially enjoyed the rousing musical comedy songs and her lovely ballads. She was happy to work in with our evening format, and added a sparkle to the Christmas festivities.
We recommend Jan to anyone wanting a classy act, with a touch of risqué, when the wine is flowing and the mood relaxed.
Thank you Jan for a great night.”Zoe Wilkinson
