Reuben went to school at Bethlehem College in Tauranga, New Zealand and became enthused with jazz after his singing teacher introduced him to the song Singin’ in the Rain at age 13, falling in love with the beautiful lyrics and melodious sounds of jazz. – He has been singing in the style of swing, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll ever since. Reuben is a fan of many genres of music, is passionate about social justice advocacy, and he is a big fan of the The Pianist, Lord of the Rings and The Dick Van Dyke Show. Reuben graduated with a Bachelor of Business degree from Auckland University of Technology in 2014.
Reuben has entertained in hotels, theatre shows (including Into The Woods, The Wizard of Oz, and Grease), rest homes, at weddings, restaurants, wineries & estates, company functions, birthdays, festivals (incl. the Queenstown Winter Fest.) and at other events at various locations in the North and South Island of New Zealand, including a live performance on TV1’s Good Morning Show.
With a wide selection of swing, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll numbers, Reuben is able to provide hours of quality entertainment either solo or with live accompaniment.
