Keyboardist and vocalist Norio Hayakawa’s ONE-MAN BAND, available for local gigs and parties in New Mexico

People ask me what kind of live music I perform as a ONE-MAN BAND.  Basically, I am a Country & Western singer.  But I also enjoy singing all kinds of songs, from Standard Pop Songs to the 50s, 60s and 70s Rock’n’Roll songs, Latin music, New Mexico music, Italian and German songs and Hawaiian songs.  I only perform the music of the 50s, 60s and 70s, music geared towards Senior Citizens, such as myself.  Here are some of my favorites from my repetoire of about 400 songs, all of them are Oldies But Goodies music.
