Bill Reidy: Pop, Folk, Soul, Country, Standards

Boston, MA
Looking for entertainment that offers a little something for everyone? As a solo entertainer, Bill Reidy performs music from a wide variety of genres, including Folk, Pop, Classic Rock, Jazz Standards, Country, R&B, Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll. With his rich baritone voice, he sings the songs of music legends like James Taylor, Neil Diamond, John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and many others. Big Bill entertains his audience with selected tunes from his vast song book and tailors his sets to the tastes of the audience. One day he might be performing his popular Neil Diamond Tribute act and the next day he’ll be doing a Rock ‘n’ Roll and Oldies set. And during the holidays he offers a Xmas set that includes carols as well as popular Xmas standards. You can choose to have Big Bill perform a specific theme for your venue or event, such as “Neil Diamond Tribute” or “Salute to Sinatra” or “Grand Ole Country Night”, or he could provide a set that includes a variety of songs from each style of music. Whichever act you choose, your audience will thoroughly enjoy the show! “Bill Reidy captures the sound and the soul of Neil Diamond, from soulful ballads to up-tempo rockers, with spot-on vocals and expressive guitar work. We have seen Neil Diamond from 300 yards away at TD Garden in Boston, but this up-close and intimate show with Bill was much more enjoyable.” – Richard G., Framingham, MA "For years I thought no one could pull off a tribute to Neil Diamond, he has quite a unique voice and he is one of my all time favorite performers, having seen him in concert twice. Boy was I wrong! I recently had the pleasure of seeing Bill Reidy perform his tribute act to Neil. I was blown away by the sound of Bill's voice. He has a very melodic voice that does justice to Neil's music. Bill also had the energy to get the crowd up and dancing as well as singing along with all the songs that we have come to know. I am hoping to seeing Bill perform many times in the future!" - Christine P., New Bedford, MA

Authentic Neil Diamond Tribute , An Eventective User from Mattapoisett, Massachusetts

I have been to several of Bill's "Solitary Man" performances and was amazed at how authentic his Neil Diamond tribute is. His deep, strong voice, his skillful, beautiful guitar playing and overall musicianship and presence are all top notch. I notice at each venue that many people go up to him and give compliments and express how much they enjoy his music. I quickly became a huge Bill Reidy fan from the very first time I heard him on stage.

A DESCRIPTION OF THE CAMELIA LATINJAZZ BAND. The CAMELIA LATINJAZZ BAND is based in Cambridge MA and its style can be best described as: instrumental Latin rhythms with jazz solos. The group has added jazz improvisation not only to the salsa rhythm (which is more common), but also to the merengue, cumbia, bachata and bolero, creating this way what they call: “salsajazz”, “merenguejazz”, “cumbiajazz”, “bachatajazz” and “bolerojazz”. The bolerojazz and bachatajazz are focused on when a more mellow type of atmosphere is needed or wanted (for example as background music), while for more lively occasions the salsajazz and merenguejazz are emphasized. The group exists as a trio (3-piece), quartet (4-piece), quintet (5-piece) and sextet (6-piece). For background music the 3-piece is favored, while for festivals and concerts the 6-piece is preferred. The instrumentation of the trio consists of: Spanish-electric guitar, keyboard (who also plays the bass part) and a hand percussion (congas, bongos, tambora, etc..), and for larger ensembles more percussions and a separate bass are added. The same song list is used for all 4 sizes and it consists of both Latino and American cover tunes, but only Latin rhythms are used, to stay within the latinjazz style and to make these tunes more interesting, special and unique. Roderick Camelia is a native of Curaçao, a Caribbean island, and is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He plays lead guitar within the group, as well as serving as musical director. He is the son of the late Juan Camelia, a well-known musician from the island, and so his broad knowledge of Latin and Caribbean music comes to him from within his family. The other players in the ensemble are also professional musicians who bring their own talent to the style. The Camelia Latinjazz Band performs regularly for private events and less frequently at public venues, and is proud to announce that the group so far has had a track record of zero unsatisfied clients. (References may be requested.) To hear and watch live performances of the trio, quartet, quintet and sextet, please go to www.youtube.com/rcamelia and scroll down to the appropriate size. These demonstrations were purposely created from "live recordings" (meaning: from recordings done without computerized corrections), with all the background chats, noises and imperfections of a live performance, so you get to experience the group in a real "live" setting: “what you hear is what you'll get”.
