From black-tie, red-rose to classy-casual, creative-cool, Casino-Rose delivers a perfect combination of laid back classics and lounge style dance hits carefully selected to enhance the ambiance of receptions, cocktail hours, and special occasions at restaurants, select nightclubs, and private events. Formed by pianist Mark Casino-Brown and Vocalist Buffy Rose, the duo integrates live looping to create a full sound while maintaining a comfortable volume.
This stylized duo mixes jazzed-up versions of your favorite pop, rock, and dance hits with classics from Chaka Khan to Elton John, show tunes from Peggy Lee to Nancy Sinatra, and Smooth Jazz from Sade to Natalie Cole!
As a classically trained pianist with a background in advanced music theory and a singer/songwriter in his own right, Mark's versatile style enables him to play everything from TV theme songs to standards to rock, pop, and dance tunes by ear or by the book!
Hailing from Detroit, Mark has been playing in bands since high school. He appears in 80's tribute band, Stereotomy as well as various solo and duo projects when he's not running, swimming, or saving the world one neuron at a time!
Singer / Dancer Buffy Rose brings over 20 years of experience performing with original and cover bands in Texas, DC, Florida, and Ukraine. As a trained dancer, she's at home on any stage adding natural movement and authentic expression to every performance.
"I love the fact that we can get creative with our repertoire, playing with cabaret and jazzy vocals on songs like Crazy Train and Lovesong, and then turning around and honoring classics like Route 66 and Smooth Operator. Mix it up with show tunes like Big Spender and it's a bit theatrical...audiences can't help but have fun with us."
