OLÉ

OLÉ

A classy and professional male-female duo/trio playing guitar, sax & percussion with sequenced backing, Olé play a great range of dinner & jazz music for early in the night & then pop/rock n roll and Latin favourites when people are ready to dance.

Newcastle & The Hunter Valley, Sydney, NSW, Australia

The duo consists of Rita Azoppardi (vocals and saxophone), and Vincenzo Martinelli (guitar). The third (optional) musician adds live percussion (bongo, cow bell) etc, which adds a nice rhythmic touch to the sequenced backing. Coming from a long line of internationally renowned musicians Rita Azzopardi sings like a bird! She has shared the stage with INXS, The Rockmelons, Dame Shirley Bassey and Chic Corea and is highly regarded in her field. This lady also plays percussion and saxophone and adds another dimension to an already polished show. Vincenzo Martinellii’s a recording artist who has performed in most countries of the world. Having studied in Italy with maestro Lucio Dossa at the Centro Romano della Gitarra in Rome, Italy, his style is heavily influenced by Spanish, Latin and Flamenco music. He continues to perform exclusively in concert in the up market luxury international cruise market. Vincenzo’s latest CD release “Che Sara” is presently enjoying worldwide critical acclaim. Ole?’s inexhaustible pursuit of excellence will guarantee a first class and highly entertaining performance.

“The staff of Tyyrell’s Vineyard Pty Ltd would like to thank you both for the wonderful
music you provided at our staff Christmas Party”
 
Arthur Wollen, Hospitality & Functions, Tyrrell’s Wines, 1999. 
 
[Ole] ... were recently hired to play for NBN Television’s ’99 Christmas Party at the
“beautiful” Roberts at Peppertree and they were just wonderful!  They are outstanding
musicians and exceptional entertainers and complemented our event superbly!  I
would thoroughly recommend them as a most professional duo capable of adding a
touch of finesse to any event!”
 
Deborah Wright, General Sales & Marketing Manager, NBN Television 1999

“During 1999 [Ole] were our resident band for all premium function nights.  We had
four exclusive wine dinners with winemakers from Lindemans, Penfolds, Red Hill and
Tyrrell’s.  In addition we had an exclusive Millenium New Years dinner.  For all these
events [Ole] performed and provided excellent dinner music followed by a broad array
of music from the past and present decades.
 
I cannot speak highly enough of Vince and Rita’s professionalism, quality of sound and
music and their fun loving personalities.
 
Wine & Roses is truly a unique and quality band.
 
Greg Hopper, Bay Views Restaurant & Function Centre, 20th January 2000 

I first met Vince Martinelli and Rita Scott last May at the Esplanade Hotel in Newcastle
where they were playing in the restaurant for a Mother’s Day luncheon.
 
My wife Mary and I were so impressed with the talented performance that we asked
them to play at the Newcastle Grammar School dinner dance held in September 1999. 
This performance for the school received extremely positive comments from many of
the people at the dinner dance.  Vince has a wonderful skill at playing the guitar and
Rita is a magnificent singer.  We then invited them to perform at our company
Christmas party held on 18 December 1999, for which we are extremely grateful and
they were again superb.
 
I would have no trouble highly recommending them to anyone who wishes to engage
them to play at a function.
