FOR INQUIRIES, PLEASE CONTACT:
Throughout the last 13 years of being a musician and educator in New York City, I have regularly partnered with New York Schools, Educational, and Entertainment organizations to provide high quality musical acts for children's events and parties.
Whether you need live music entertainment for your child's birthday party or you're looking for a DJ for the family bar mitzvah, I have a track record ensuring a successful and fun experience for kids and grown ups. I have an extensive network of some of the most successful and talented musicians and educators in New York City whom I regularly collaborate with to make sure you are satisfied with what you need.
Some popular entertainment options include:
- A live singer/ guitarist singing the most popular children's songs and contemporary pop hits.
- If you want to step it up a notch, the next option would be bringing a 2 piece band, including a singer/ drummer and guitarist or keyboard player performing the most popular children's songs and contemporary pop hits.
- Finally, the full experience includes a full 3 piece band, with a drummer, singer/ keyboardist, and guitarist, ensuring the most fullness of sound, providing the most popular children's songs and contemporary pop hits.
Please contact me directly to discuss live music entertainment options for your next party.
"Leo was an excellent addition to my 8 year old's birthday party. My son could not have been happier with Leo's live drumming to some of the most popular songs on the radio today. He had a whole room of 8 year olds jumping and dancing! Highly recommended."

"Knowing Leo as our daughter's private music teacher, we asked him to put a small band together to perform at our youngest daughter's birthday party. Ranging from "Baby Shark" to the Backstreet Boys, the band was very talented and kept both kids and adults entertained throughout their performance! I got compliments from our guests and our daughters had a lot of fun signing and dancing."
