Vocalist and Upright Bassist, Chris Conte performs classic, swinging American Songbook jazz & blues favorites. He takes influence from musical legends, such as Nat "King" Cole, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr., and Diana Krall, while his voice is often compared to that of a young Chet Baker or Mel Torme. His performance will satisfy audiences of all types. While his singing, bass playing, and band mates will be featured, the real stars of the night are the timeless songs.
Chris lives in Dobbs Ferry, NY. In addition to performing for upscale private events, Chris can be found singing and playing at concerts and festivals in the Tri-State area. He teaches vocal and double bass on a limited basis from his home studio and from the Sonis Music Studios in Tuckahoe, NY.
