What is Digital Ambiance?

Imagine having a band for your clients led by a classic jazz saxophonist accompanied by a duo, trio, quintet, sax section, classic big band or full orchestra with strings. Also imagine that all the musicians in the various musical settings are great soloists providing your customers or guests with unlimited fresh background jazz while having cocktails or dining. Solos provided by guitars, vibes, trumpets, pianos, trombones, and flutes. And imagine all this for a fraction of the price you would normally pay for a band. John can provide your venue, whether large or small, with all this!

Whenever people get together to socialize, eat, drink, and be merry, music has aways provided just the right touch for the occasion. John Cortes has years of professional experience playing for Private and Corporate functions; cocktail, dinner, and dance parties; Winetastings; Weddings; and Christmas, Anniversary, Birthday, and Garden parties.

Here are just a few recent engagements that showcase the versatility of John & Digital Ambiance:

 

John Cortes & Digital Ambiance

 

 

Digital Ambiance consists of John playing soprano, alto, and tenor saxophones and a Roland synthesizer. He also utilizes a laptop computer and small PA system to mix all of the musical elements together. The "entertainment setup-area" is kept to a minimum amount of space.
