About Ciro "The soul machine"

Extensive repertoire & Fabolous singing for an absolutely unforgettable party!
Singer
London

My name is Ciro and I'm a London-based singer and performer with more than 10 years of experience in national and international tours, festivals, weddings and function gigs. During these years I have had the opportunity to grow professionally and travel the world doing what I love, singing and entertaining people. I had the pleasure of performing in front of the Princess of Morocco, of performing in front of small and large crowds, collaborating in large productions both as part of an ensemble and as a solo act by learning the various layers involved in organizing a show. I will put this precious experience, my exciting energy and contagious irony at your complete disposal, to create a show that will remain on everyone's lips for years to come! Another thing I am sure of is my repertoire which is sure to please various generations of music lovers, from the greats of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, Motown and Dance floor filler to pop and rock at the top of the modern-day charts. A few names? Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Bruno Mars, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, George Michael, the Temptations and more! Extensive repertoire from soul, funk, Motown, pop, rock to disco & dance, in 3 different languages (English, Italian and Spanish) Take a look at my song list and don't worry if you don't find a particular song, I may have already heard it otherwise I could prepare it (with an extra) specifically for your event. PS. All prices include travelling up to 9 miles and 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! Based in East London but travel by train up to 90 miles.

Ciro was amazing! We booked him last minute and he was very accomodating. He asked what sort of songs we liked from his list to help tailor to us and nothing was a problem! Ciro is bubbly and funny and managed to get the whole party dancing! Would highly recommend 😄😄🙏🏼

Ciro was the best entertainer I've seen in a long time. Everyone was up and dancing and it was the perfect addition to our party. He's a brilliant performer and all of the guests were talking about him after. Definitely recommended !!
