The cymbal crashes…the bass thunders…the keys rain in…the guitar wails out…the spotlight is fired up… and Amber bursts onto the stage!
For the next couple of hours you are treated to a rare breed of performer whose powerful vocal range along with her non-stop energy and brilliant costume changes will have you cheering and dancing along to the beat.
Well-regarded in the music world, Amber is known for performing with such notables as Richie Cannata, Bobby Rondinelli, Randy Jackson and Don Most, as well as sharing the stage with Taylor Dayne.
Amber is recognized for her paramount tributes to some of the greatest female singers of all time. She celebrates Janis Joplin, Madonna and Pat Benatar in 3 separate shows; Joplin’s Pearl, Material Girl and Benatar. Each show is a testament of praise to each artist with a reverent performance complete with costume changes and the addition of a horn section and percussion making these shows a distinguished event.
Amber’s prominent writing skills, along with her husband Chris Ferrari’s knack for composing, have brought about several well-received CD releases available on iTunes, CDBaby and other music outlets.
With two songs on the Billboard Music Charts and her own record label, O.M.O. Records Inc., Amber is a seasoned performer who uses her vision and flair to make every show one-of-a-kind.
Classically trained, Amber has a strong range which grants her the ability to not only nail any song she covers, but to own it in her unique and dynamic style.
From hard-driving rock and roll hits to soulful r & b classics, she grabs hold of the song and delivers an outstanding performance. The diverse style of her originals pay homage to her inclusive love of music.
Each one of Amber’s performances are a testimony to her passion, brilliance and enthusiasm to her craft and to her audience.
In 2005, musical director of Theatre Three in Port Jefferson, the late Ellen Michelmore, saw something special in Amber. Ellen, who was vocal coach and dear friend to Amber, had asked her to cover Janis Joplin in Ellen’s production “Woodstockmania.” Amber’s performance was so well received that shortly after, Joplin’s Pearl was born.
Playing such distinctive venues as Theatre Three, The Patchogue Theater, and Suffolk Theater, Amber has taken Joplin’s Pearl to a level of a full theater production. Authentic attire, a nine-piece band, and Amber’s paramount tribute to the very heart and soul of Janis Joplin will bring you back to the Summer of Love.
