A New York Evening with Arnaldo!

The Duplex, New York

"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, February 2007

"Arnaldo handled his material adroitly, affording appropriate and appealing interpretations to his songs." 

Peter Leavy, Cabaret Scenes, February 2007

"…Arnaldo and his act were quite charming; bought into the whole thing.  … Arnaldo changed for a wonderful “gag” number filled with props … his voice is unique …All in all a lovely and fun show."

Jack Moore, Cabaret Scenes Palm Springs contributor, June 2007

I Wanna Be Loved By You

Thumper's Cabaret, Seattle

"...Arnaldo! charms with I Wanna be Loved by You – This vintage valentine salutes 25 songs from the 1920’s and 30’s.  It turns out to be the perfect era to spotlight Arnaldo! as a roaring 20’s flapper. …While much of the evening’s music salutes the great American songbooks …it is the rarities that mark this cabaret as “must” for GLBT fans and cabaret veterans..."

A Fine Romance

Thumper's Cabaret, Seattle

"... A Fine Romance with Arnaldo! - Arnaldo! Packs ‘Em In  … To the adoring throng, the popular vocalist could do no wrong.  Cole Porter’s immortal “Let’s Do it” opened the evening’s vocals. … A salute to Julie London followed, the a tribue to Eartha Kitt. … As usual, Arnaldo’s elegant gowns and tasteful jewelry add to the success of the popular “gender illusionist”.  Another first rate show from a first rate entertainer..."

July Summer Nights

Thumper's Cabaret, Seattle

"... Arnaldo! Wows cabaret fans at Thumper’s – Arnaldo! is simply a force of nature.  This outing opens with …tributes to the music of Shirley Bassey and Burt Bacharach. Act Two gives us … The Best of Arnaldo!.  Diamonds Are A Girl’s best friend”, Peel Me A Grape”, “I Wanna Be Evil” and other “material girl” songs highlight the set.  “Something Cool” a quiet classic, is a great contrast but lighthearted fare dominates the show – Kander & Ebb’s “All That Jazz” and their classic “Cabaret” end the show on a high note..."
