Crimson Canary is known for flamenco, but we have added in Portuguese fado and beloved songs in French, Italian, German and Latin American Spanish as well as classic vocal jazz in English. See what others have said about us:
"Having had well over 1000 music performances over the last nine plus years that have covered every kind of music from classical to hard rock, we at Mocha Maya were very excited to find Dave and Lonnie Chu, as they were a first rate act as well as being wonderful people to work with. Dave and Lonnie brought an electricity and energy to the room that only flamenco music can do when it is played by true professionals. They quickly had the attention of the room and inspired several groups to dance, making for a fun and lively performance. We would not hesitate to book them again and are eager for them to move to New England area so that they could become a regular act for us."

"I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon, very recently, as an audience member of the supremely versatile and wonderful Lonnie & David Chu. In this specific event, they were joined by percussionist, David Clement. The chemistry among the artists is immediately evident; the musicality, the energy and varied rhythms, styles and music are quite a treat. The concert lasted about 75 minutes and we all wanted more. Lonnie's vocalistics spanned an impressive range and explored many emotions from the passion of "Torna a Surriento" and the fun of "Frenesi," to "La Vie En Rose" and Irving Berlin's "Blue Skies." Flamenco rhythms and fascinating guitar and percussion capped off this most unusual program. I'm a fan! I write this simply because I was there and I had a ball! And I wanted to state it publicly."

“We were thrilled to have Crimson Canary at our first ever Live Music Event at Gentile’s Restaurant! Our guests really enjoyed their music, especially, of course, the numbers in Italian! They played to our crowd beautifully, never overpowering the space, but there to add to our atmosphere and bring in songs from various decades. Our guests enjoyed the vocals as well as the instrumentals from this very talented trio. A total pleasure having them in Gentile’s! We look forward to a return engagement!”
