About

Hi! I’m Rockstar Sissy also known as Catherine Taormina. I’m looking to put together an awesome musical show called Operation: Music Connect. This show is so exciting because it involves diverse musical acts. The show will include classical, contemporary, rock, jazz, opera dixieland, french chanson & gutbucket blues. The bands performing will be me, Rockstar Sissy with my bandmates Jotan Afanador who will be back from his tour with Aventura just in time for this event! and Joseph Wallace on bass. I write and sing pop-rock-funk-punk groovin songs, Nick Addeo the amazingly sweet sounding operatic tenor, Anna Kendrick who composes and sings jazzy, bluesy, cabaret-esque standards, Nicky Addeo oldies, contemporary and R&B singer, the amazingly talented world renown concert pianist Inna Faliks, and the Hot Sardines french chanson, dixieland, & gutbucket blues musical group. The show will be MC’d by Johnny Petillo of the Johnny Petillo show. I am looking at producing this show at the Triad Theater http://www.triadnyc.com in NYC in April on a Saturday at 2pm. So please take a look at the incentives for donations and the youtube links below of the amazing performers I have linked up. $8,000 is the minimum I need to raise for this show to happen. If I am able to raise this $8,000 I intend to produce more music performances, plays, and even films. So please pledge and awesome happiness can be shared with a whole lot of people, not just me!
