Behind the Song
Barbara Santora Jazz
Barbara Santora was born to sing and has been singing her heart out since she was 3 years old! Barbara performed in Vegas for 14 years, sharing stages with greats such as Frank Sinatra Jr., Billy Preston, and more. She boasts an impressive 5-octave range that has garnered the attention of audiences worldwide.
"I believe you should never give up on your dreams! I’ve done many genres of music, but jazz and jazzy blues are where my heart is! Sassy Bluez is so special to me because although I’ve written a lot of poetry and many lyrics, this song is the first one I’ve actually heard a melody line! Very exciting, and already I’ve started on 2 more songs and hear the melodies as well."
- Barbara Santora
Barbara’s dedication and determination have been demonstrated throughout her career, perhaps never more so than in her tireless work to recover from a crushed ankle to get back on the stage. She now performs as Barbara Santora Jazz with her combo, which is available for private parties and corporate events, nightclubs, including out-of-town bookings! Her shows bring you jazz, originals, and timeless classics with a flare for love and laughter to audiences of all ages!
