Solo Performance

Jimmy Rosetti Solo Performances

Jimmy Rosetti,  having worked with his own band for many years, started doing a solo performance back in 1985 when he left a house band engagement at Alioto’s in Milwaukee.  He led a house band there for four years.   As a solo artist,  Jimmy started entertaining at seafood and raw bars along Florida’s Treasure Coast from Fort Lauderdale all the way up to Vero Beach and down to Miami Beach and The Keys.  The material he covered was mostly Jimmy Buffet, James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot and along those lines.  Even though most of his accompaniment was his own acoustic guitar, Jimmy found that expanding his sound with music tracks and adding electric guitars into his performance gave his solo show a much more broadened appeal to audiences, most of them tourists from all over the U.S.

 

The expanded show led to cruise ships and resort hotel engagements and a huge variety of audiences.  This led to opening for various entertainers including:   Tina Turner, Chuck Berry, Wayne Newton, Alabama, Rod Stewart, BB King, etc.  As a result of interacting with all of those musical entertainers, Jimmy opened Music City Connection entertainment Agency in West Palm Beach and he started promoting his own events and booking these performers into various venues in South Florida and other parts of the country.  This gave him an opportunity to open, close, MC, and entertain many different audiences.  Jimmy Rosetti has an amazing talent for complimenting and sounding like so many of the entertainers that he covers.   He was quoted as saying, “That’s why I never became as big an entertainer as many of the people I imitated, I was too good at sounding just like them and they did it first.  You need to nurture your own sound then take it to the masses”.

Jim Quote:  “ I am first and foremost an entertainer.  I sing, tell jokes, tell stories, get audiences involved, do sing-a-longs, ethnic tunes, and yes, I’ve even been known to tap dance (ha ha only joking).  Being a musician is only a small part of what I do”
