About Ciro "The soul machine"

Extensive repertoire & Fabulous singing for an absolutely unforgettable party!
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Verified profile

Hi! My name is Ciro, and I am a London-based singer and performer with more than ten years of experience in national and international tours, festivals, weddings, and function gigs. During these years, I’ve had the opportunity to grow professionally and travel the world doing what I love most, singing and entertaining people. I have performed in front of small and large audiences and collaborated in large productions as part of a five ensemble and as a solo by learning the various layers involved in organising a show. One of my most outstanding achievements is performing in front of the Princess of Monaco. I will use my previous experience, exciting energy, and contagious irony to create a show that will remain on everyone’s lips for years to come! My repertoire will please many generations of music lovers, from the greats of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, Motown, and dance floor fillers to pop and rock at the top of the modern-day charts. A few artists I cover are Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Bruno Mars, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, George Michael, the Temptations, and more! My extensive repertoire cover genres such as Soul, Funk, Motown, Pop, Rock, Disco and Dance in three different languages (English, Italian and Spanish). Feel free to take a look at my song list, and don’t worry if you don’t find a particular song. I may already know it, or I'm more than happy to learn it specifically for your event. All prices include travelling up to 9 miles and a PA system (microphones, mixer, pre-amp speaker and high-quality backing tracks) with a sound capacity of up to 150 people. Don't hesitate to ask for a free consultation, your dream entertainment is only one step away from coming true! I'm based in East London but I can travel by train up to 90 miles. Feel free to get in touch by clicking the "Check availability" or "Message" buttons at the top of the page and we can discuss your event needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

Found Ciro whilst searching for a singer or entertainer for my n new husbands Happily Ever After party. Persuaded Ciro to travel to Felixstowe and he agreed as long as we got him a room. He arranged train travel which was all messed up due to strikes. He adapted and got across London and travelled with family members. At the party, Ciro absolutely made the evening into a superb event. His voice is amazing. He chose the perfect songs to keep us all filling the dance floor all night and never for one minute showed anything but the total professional one man entertainment act that he is. With Ciro it is definitely a fabulous night.

We had a Spanish Themed Paella Garden Party. For friends and Family of all-ages. We posted our requirements and viewed a few audition tapes. Ciro stood out for us. And we were not disappointed . He has a very Professional approach and was prompt and courteous. He has a large range of songs for all. On the the day he had a quick and compact high quality setup. He immediately formed a bond with his audience. Every one was up and dancing and joining in. He performed a great mix of songs. In all it was a perfect choice and we were left wanting for more! Thank You Ciro! “The Soul Machine”
