"...A consummate professional, Arnaldo! knows showmanship. Throughout the evening, the drag chanteuse changed into three different gowns, each more beautiful than the last. The wonderful thing about Arnaldo! is the illusion; from the voice to the gowns to the playful giggle, Arnaldo! is a beautiful drag artist whose voice never falters or wanes..." read more

What They Say About Arnaldo!

“But it was on the more serious songs that you knew this was a special artist with depth and intelligence ... On such moments, it was like watching one of yesteryear's femmes caught up in the rapture of romance in a smoky nightclub from an old movie.”  --John Hoglund, Cabaret Hotline Online

"...But the one-name performer hasn't taken a joke moniker, although he does a clever piece of special material based on the frequent mispronunciations of Arnaldo. Nor does he sing in an affected feminine voice. He doesn't really need to, since his own voice is as light as a blast of helium -- one of those sensual exhalations that have made the careers of Blossom Dearie and Daryl Sherman."  --David Finkle, Backstage

"Arnaldo handled his material adroitly, affording appropriate and appealing interpretations to his songs."  --Peter Leavy, Cabaret Scenes

"No mention of the concert would be complete without commending the amazing performance of Arnaldo ..."   --Melinda Bargreen,  Seattle Times music critic

"A Genius..." --Ann
Hampton Callaway, guest artist Seattle Men's Chorus New Zealand-Australia tour

"Utterly original and unabashedly glamorous, Arnaldo is a sensational and ravishing musical diva!" --Chay Yew, Director of theh Taper's Asian Theatre Workshop and the Resident Director at East West Players in Los Angeles

"Arnaldo is who I call upon when Seattle Men's Chorus goes on tour or has a big special engagement. The solo numbers he does with the large ensemble backing him are always the hit of the show." --Dennis Coleman, Artistic Director, Seattle Men's Chorus

[Arnaldo] is a female impersonator—not quite like the others—extremely tasteful....
looks like a young Pat Suzuki sitting atop the piano doing Cole Porter and other sly, witty things!!!" --Erv Raible, NY cabaret impresario and Artisic Director, Cabaret Conference at Yale University
"The highlight of the show is Arnaldo ..."  --Vivian Wai,  Seattle Weekly theater critic
"…Arnaldo is truly a gender illusionist of the highest rank."   --Milton Hamlin,  Seattle Gay News music critic
"Such talent, such caring ... thanks a million!"    --Ron Sims, King County Executive
