the Birdie Mendozaband performs Latin, Jazz, and dance music for any occassion, from star-studded galas to backyard weddings.
Birdie is the only Latina Ray Charles backup singer in history! And her band is a favorite among Hollywood tastemakers and wedding couples because of their chic songlist, which includes Bossa Nova, Samba, Cha Cha, Salsa, Boleros, Jazz, Swing & classic dance songs from Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Michael Jackson, the Beatles and more. They offer the perfect mix of class & carnivale, and can work as a duo (Birdie on vocals and box drum with guitar or keyboard) or the classic 4 pieces (keys, bass, drums and Birdie on Vocals) or as large as a 10-piece salsa band. Whatever your event requires, Birdie is a stunning, entertaining vocalist, and as professional as they come.
