Nicki Sbaffoni
Nicki Sbaffoni, born and raised in southwest Pennsylvania, has been writing and performing music for more than half her life. After moving to the Philadelphia area in 2002, Nicki found herself impressed by the wealth of opportunity in the local music scene and promptly gave up her day job for a new one: Acoustic Entertainer! As summers approach, you'll find Nicki playing solo shows up and down the Jersey shore and year round performing all over the Philly, NJ, and NY areas.

She is a genuine music fan, and unlike many other acoustic performers in the scene, can actually perform 100% requests. In fact, Nicki even provides laminated set lists including 380+ song selections to petition said requests. With a mantra of "strum and wail" Nicki consistently surprises and delights audiences with powerful versions of favorite songs as well as her eclectic song selection.

While Nicki works consistently as a cover-based entertainer, she relishes in opportunities to focus on original music. Nicki's compositions all fall snugly into the acoustic pop genre, with strong, emotional lyrics, hypnotic melodies, and catchy refrains. Nicki has performed original sets at many revered Philadelphia venues, including World Café Live, Tin Angel, the Grape Room, among others.

Nicki's upcoming release, "Falling all the time" combines full band recordings with stripped bare acoustic songs more reminiscent of her live performance, abundant in clever songwriting and refreshing style.

Professional Equipment. . . Nicki uses a Bose L1 Portable Amplification System for all live performances where a house sound system is not available. The Bose L1 is appropriate for all venue sizes and volume requirements. Nicki has used this system in small restaurants, mid-size lounges, churches, and open air beach venues with great success. Best of all, Nicki's set up does not take up much space at all, accommodating the smallest of venues.

Nicki performs with with either a Gretsch or Gibson acoustic electric guitar and occasionally uses a Boss Loop Station to enhance her solo performance with multiple guitar arrangements and vocal harmonies. However, Nicki does not use a drum machine or laptop and is not a "sequence act."

Kelly Ricketts

Kelly has been playing guitar for 11 years and has been writing music for equally as long. Her influences range from Andrew Lloyd Webber, to Francis Dunnery, Ani Difranco, and R&B/Motown.

Laura Cheadle

Not just a thoughtful singer-songwriter, and not just a soulful funk diva, musician Laura Cheadle offers audiences a lively performance filled with upbeat introspection.

Patty Balbo

Patty has been doing this "singing" thing professionally for a close to twenty years now, and it has afforded her some very cool opportunities...

Patty Blee

If you can imagine Sheryl Crow meeting Bonnie Raitt in a corner bar as they kick back a few cold ones with Lucinda, then you'll have no problem envisioning PATTY BLEE pulling up a stool and fitting right in. Her husky voice, confessional songs and rootsy sound have earned her numerous comparisons to such artists.

Ryan Tennis

The charming authenticity of Ryan Tennis' sound has drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Bill Withers and Martin Sexton, surprising likenesses for an All-American college football player turned singer/songwriter. While his disarming lyrics and singable melodies display a rare sensitivity, the intensity of his live performances hint at his grid-iron past.
