I started my performing career being classically trained with the Bromley Boys Singers. I've performed in various musicals throughout his schooling years in shows including 'The Sound of Music' as Kurt (one of the Von Trapp children) and also performed as 'Blue Lou' playing Saxophone in the musical of the Blues Brothers. In his younger years Santino performed in venues such as the Duomo in Florence with his school choir. After doing his A-Levels Santino went on to study Music at The University of Southampton, graduating with a BA (Hons) degree. During his time at University he belonged to 'Jazzamanix' the University's Jazz and Gospel choir to which he was able to perform in places like Barcelona in Spain and Interlaken in Switzerland. He has also performed across the country including festivals such as the Edinburgh Fringe.

I'm a solo Acoustic Guitarist and Vocalist performing in Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs and at events like Weddings and celebrational functions around the country. I can perform my own compositions on request but mainly offer cover songs with my own unique twist from well know artists including Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, The Everly Brothers, Eddie Cochran, The Gypsy Kings, The Dubliners, etc... I offers a versatile set of musical genres including Rock n Roll, Blues, Jazz, Swing, 50s & 60s Classics as well as traditional Irish, Spanish and Italian songs. Amongst the live music I also performs covers from the likes of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Louis Prima as a Crooner styled 'Rat Pack' set using high quality backing tracks. He currently has a repertoire list of over 350 songs incorporating the two sets.

I offer tuition to Classical / Acoustic guitar students and Vocal tuition to both private and group sessions. I've worked with various companies including PopGems (directed by Gem Allen Pritchard) in Beckenham from 2013 - 2014. Here children from the ages 2 - 18 can learn to improve their Singing, Dancing and Acting skills as well as having fun, meeting/making new friends and building confidence.

In 2009, I became a Director of The London Youth Gospel Choir. With the choir I had appeared in events like the Jazz FM International Awards 2013, BBC Songs of Praise, FUSE Events, and in venues such as The Royal Festival Hall, The Royal College of Music, The Excell Centre and Earls Court.
Since January 2014 I have undertaken a new Gospel choir bringing the community of Bellingham (in Lewisham) together. This choir is accessible to all ages, abilities and is a choir to improve your vocal technique and harmonisation skills whilst having fun singing and socialising with different people.

I work alongside various Nursing/Care/Retirement homes providing music therapy to residents with disabilities and dementia. It brings uplifting live music into the residents lives. i currently have a portfolio of over 100 care homes in the South East of England.

I also perform in both a duo called Sonny & the Harp and a Blues Band called the B.B.Slims Band. The duo consists of myself on Rhythm Guitar and Lead vocals, John Appleyard on Blues Harmonica, Vocals, and Guitar. We play a mixture of Rhythm and Blues and Rock n Roll covers as well our own original songs.
The band is made up the duo plus Georg Tormann on Keyboards, Andy Bate on Drums and Paul Hudson on Bass Guitar. The group play traditional Blues with a modern twist keeping the sound fresh and lively. They have over a 30 song repertoire list and can perform as a 1-5 piece band. The band play covers of songs from the likes of Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Howlin' Wolf, Stevie Ray Vaughan and James Brown to name a few. We perform at Festivals, Functions, Weddings and Parties.
