Don Covel provides the perfect option for live music at any venue, whether it be a private party, corporate or social event, or a wedding reception. After years as band leader Don began performing as solo artist. He had a vision for an enhanced sound using music technology. Don explains,
“I knew people (especially baby boomers) wanted a new alternative for live-music as an option to a full band or DJ.” Word spread quickly about Don’s classic rock sound, warm vocals, and smooth guitar.
Today Don provides entertainment and live-event production resources all over southern California for private and public venues and is described as as “… a true renaissance musician.” (OC Weekly). Don’s warm, smooth vocal style is complemented by his finger-style, & soft jazz guitar work. His music adds the missing ingredient to any venue. His music has reflections of James Taylor, and Michael Franks, with instrumental inspirations from Earl Klugh, and Chet Atkins.
Don’s style veers towards classic soft rock (Eagles & Clapton) with a touch of jazz tossed in. He often includes intricate acoustic pieces (Acoustic Alchemey & Earl Klugh) along with the nostalgia of the 60s and 70s (Bread, Beatles, & Elton) at times playing rhythmic-fusion selections (Lee Ritenour & Sypro Gyra). Even performing renditions by notable female artists (Allison Krause, Chaka Kahn, Stevie Nicks) rearranged and presented with dexterity and compelling delivery. Using synthesizers & hi-end sound systems, backing tracks are added to the live vocal and guitar mix. The result is an amazingly real live band sound that is seldom achieved by solo artists. It all comes together in a multi-faceted mosaic and soundscape that warms the heart and eases the mind.
So enjoy classic rock, smooth jazz, and warm vocals with Don. His music can be the central feature at your venue or a background ambiance.
Guests can listen, talk, and enjoy.
