Chicago based singer, Carlo, will bring his smooth pop/jazz tones to the stage of the beautiful intimate club that is Don't Tell Mama's for one special show.
With appearances in Chicago, Los Angeles and the Philippines, Carlo is excited to be bringing his love of different genres of music that he has a passion. Songs include "What are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?", the single "Please Don't Ask Me"
