about paul santa maria live:

experience, songs, styles, $$$

I have beenperforming live professionally (getting paid) since age 12 and, since that time have been solo, duo, trio, etc. I have been either a part-time or full-time (or opening act) member of The Spiral Staircase, The Drifters, The Platters, The Marvelettes, The Spinners, Tiny Tim, The Coasters, Larry Coryell and hundreds of local and touring bands.

If you missed my BIOREZ, I am also an award-winning music composer with 4 Daytime EMMYs to my credit, 2 listings on

imdb.com (the internet movie database) for 2 film scores and have written over 700 separate pieces of music for PBS,

the Discovery channel - so I know how to be professional.

My Styles:

I perform solo (like the solo guitar 2015 sample) mostly non-vocal "Jazzy" instrumentals for weddings, (all stages of wedding events) restaurants, private  parties and specialize in classics by The Beatles, Zeppelin, etc. 

OR:I play pop music with backing tracks (like the other two music samples above...) which adds my vocals and the styles are from Frank Sinatra to Beatles, etc. for a party atmosphere.

With solo guitar, I play with great dynamics, meaning sometimes my arrangements are very quiet (like "Edelweiss", "Yesterday" or "Michelle") and sometimes aggressive (like "Eleanor Rigby" or some Blues) but all are with complex chording, a display of technical ability that you won't hear with a "strummer" (not that there's anything wrong with that) and it is very attention-getting.

I dress nicely and I SHAVE. I don't require alcohol or drugs to play the way I do - in fact, they would be a hindrance to my need for attention to every move I make on my 1977 Gibson Les Paul.

As an associate, side man, producer and engineer for world-famous musicians, I learned from the best !! 

$$$: GeneraIly, I charge $175.00 for 2 hours, $250.00 for 3 hours, which is my maximum performance time.

However, negotiation is an art I have mastered...

Generally, I am in the Upstate NY area June - September and

Melbourne, Florida  November- June.
