Starr Acheson


Biography:
Following a career that includes extensive tours as a singer/actress with many Broadway and Musical Comedy shows and reviews, Starr enjoyed over a decade of popularity in The Hilton Head and Charleston SC area, where she was featured with her own Jazz and Big Bands at all of the better known hotels and resorts, including The Melrose Club, The Inter-Continental Hotel, The Westin Resort, The South Carolina Yacht Club and The Historic Mills House Hotel, just to name a few.

For the past ten years she has been a featured vocalist with The Nelson Riddle Orchestra, and The Clem De Rosa Orchestra and has also enjoyed performing with National Tours of both Big Band Shows and Dixieland shows, where she struts her stuff as a tried and true "Red Hot Mama', and delights audiences both young and old with her captivating stage presence, quick wit, and down to earth charm. Her interpretation of both the music and the lyrics qualifies her as not just a singer, but a vocal artist who uses her amazing range, strong rich vocals, and her uncanny ability to sing from the depths of her soul to capture an audience and hold them in the palm of her hand. Each time she walks on stage she brings a charm and vitality that is truly remarkable as well as irresistible. Compared to such artists as Judy Garland, Keely Smith, Bette Midler,and Liza Minelli, Starr gives 100% and more to each performance making the night all the more memorable for all in attendance.

Starr offers a variety of options for any situation, from solo piano and vocal to a Big Band of 14 to 20 pieces. She is also more than capable of putting together variety and dance bands that will accommodate any occasion that includes jazz, big band, rock, beach, country and pop. She performs One Woman Broadway Themed shows and has performed as Dinner Show Entertainment on many occasions, and will "Tailor Make" the show for your group or convention to go along with any theme possible. Whatever the budget Starr can put together the right combination of players to get the job done and please each and every guest, no matter what their ages or musical tastes.
