The exciting duo of Sonny and Perley achieves a rare musical symbiosis. This husband and wife team has spent the last 30 years developing and perfecting their unique blend of Jazz, Great American Songbook, Bossa Nova, and International Cabaret into what has become their musical signature. The Magazine All About Jazz says “They brightly meld lyricism, passion, and rhythm in a way that is both rich and exotic”. They have appeared in concerts, festivals, cabaret shows and private events from New York to Florida and in Europe. In 2013 Sonny and Perley had the distinct honor of presenting a prelude concert for legendary Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim.
Sonny and Perley perform as a duo, trio, quartet or quintet for concerts, festivals, intimate cabaret, musical educational programs for libraries, nightclubs and private events.
Their 4 CD releases “Love Dance” (1996), “East of the Sun” (1998), “Let it Happen” (2004),”Sonny and Perley Live! Love is Here to Stay” (2009) have generated international air play and received critical acclaim. It is in live performance; however, where Sonny and Perley truly shine. Throughout New York, New England and in Europe, the duo has captivated audiences with their warmth, spontaneity, musical honesty and broad repertoire.
May 7th, 2013, Sonny and Perley had the pleasure of performing a prelude concert to “An Evening with Stephen Sondheim” at the Maureen Stapleton Theatre, Troy, NY.
