Our name is Encore 2. We are Sandy Forbes and Mike 'Solo' Pizzi.
Sandy and I recently found ourselves working together in a band and decided to branch out on our own to form a nostalgic orientated duo performing the songs we (and many others out there) love!
Sandy is an accomplished vocalist who also plays guitar and is a classically trained flutist. I am a vocalist / keyboardist who was also classically trained (on trumpet). During our show, we do manage to showcase our classical upbringings on a few songs!
Our ‘nostalgic’ sound is enhanced utilizing both state of the art MIDI backing tracks and a dedicated MIDI player (not a laptop) commonly used in many top Las Vegas shows. These tracks allow us to take out the keyboard / guitar parts of a song so we can play our instruments LIVE and sing along with the ‘best band we’ve ever played with!’ The result is an authentic ‘full-band sounding’ show by just two performers!
Specializing in - but certainly not limited to - 50s to 80s music, we are ready to Rock’n’Roll!
Enclosed are our promotional materials. For more information about Encore 2, please visit the website listed below.
Thanking you in advance!
