<< Willie Pure Project feat. Maverrie-Cate >> Stage name: "Hot & Spicy"
An experimental duo created just a few months ago! We are doing cover songs with my own different arrangements aside from my own originally written songs.
**Maverrie-Cate is a very talented young singer. She went to an acting school in Zürich, Switzerland and has performed with various bands back in the Philippines during her stay in the country. She's actually a mix of Filipina and Geman, mother is from the Philippines and father is German. I myself originally came direct from the Philippines and settled down in Switzerland some 40 years ago. I have been performing with various international musicians and band through out Europe. I was born with music in my blood that I remember playing the ukulele even before I started school, or even before I learned how to tie my own shoe lace.. hahaha
*In this new project of mine, I usually play every instrument and record them in my loop-machine one by one to use as our playback tracks for our live performances. It's something completely different than the usual loop-players and playback entertainers on the market, because we do sound like a live band of 7 to 9 musicians on the stage. Added with my live voice processor I can produce a backing voices of a gospel choir and others. In fact, our demo songs that you can hear by clicking on the link below, are recorded out of my loop-machine. That's exactly how we sound on our live shows. It's something for everyone to see and enjoy.
Our live performance sound:
Since it's very limited what can be uploaded and publish in this site, please check my actual repertoire of songs on the link below...
I have a wide variety of music in my repertoire. I adapt my setlist to the proposed event, regarding the crowd type and ages variation to make everyone happy and enjoy an unforgettable event with me!
I have played in almost all big hotels in the cities and ski places in west Europe, like *Carlton Hotel in St. Moritz, *Zermatterhof Hotel in Zermatt, *Bellveau Hotel in Davos, *Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne... etc.,etc....
I also have played at the famous Montreux Jazz Festival as well as *Kursaal Casino in Bern with international jazz musicians and singers. I also had been touring with the famous american soul diva Wilma Ridding in different concerts in Holland during the 80s.
As I have already mentioned, I have been playing on the stage since I was 10 years old, sometimes together with my father who had an 18 man band orchestra in our country in the late 60s and 70s. That's how I gathered all my musical routine and experience and made me able to play *any kind of song at our present time!!
Due to this talent it's very easy for me to create new arrangement for any song and arrange the appropriate chorus, jazzy or gospel like.
