Carla Troiano Sprinkles Her Sparkle on Melbourne Christmas Parties

Rachel Chipp

A sassy attitude and a powerhouse of a voice are just two of the things that set Carla Troiano apart as an outstanding choice for your Melbourne Christmas party this year.

Carla’s appealing allure is evident when she seductively sings Peggy Lee’s ‘Fever’ in her distinguishably husky voice. She pulls full-out sass out of her bag of tricks to perform numbers such as ‘Don’t Cha’ by The Pussycat Dolls, ‘Hot Stuff’ by Donna Summer and Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy in Love’. Her rich timbre is also a fantastic match for funk songs such as Wild Cherry’s ‘Play That Funky Music’ and soul songs such as Aretha Franklin’s ‘Rock Steady’.

Carla Troiano’s four-piece DJ band comprises Carla, combined with a saxophonist, percussionist and DJ - together, they are a stellar combination with a great chemistry. They have a fun time on stage together and their positive energy is so infectious. Even they can’t resist dancing along to their own performances!

In this medley of some of the dance tracks that Carla Troiano sings, her performance is so polished and vivacious. The saxophonist in her four-piece band adds an extra sprinkle of class and flavour to each of the tunes. The saxophone playfully intersperses with her voice so that it sounds as if they are performing a duet before the saxophonist is given own solo sections to exhibit his prowess. He even provides the famous horn hook intro to Carla's version of Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy in Love’.

Carla Troiano’s voice is often compared to that of Anastacia due to its combination of depth and unbelievable power and in this video there are moments where you could be convinced that it is Anastacia’s voice exploding out of Carla’s mouth.

As we reflect on the past year and head into the next, Christmas is the perfect time for songs that celebrate life itself and all the people around us, so it’s a good thing that Carla Troiano’s song list includes such evocative songs as Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World’ and Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’.

Like a sparkling wine, Carla Troiano will add her effervescence to your Melbourne Christmas party.
