Today I received "First Take" Something Different Duo CD. I have listened to it four times already. It's going into my ipod tonight so that it goes where ever I go. Brad Sindle and Ashley, it is amazing, I love it. WOW! Everyone that appreciates music should buy this CD immediately.
Brad and Ashley, I just got your CD "First Take" and I must say I was blown away. I had never heard you before but helped out some with your CD efforts and it was worth every penny. Your keyboard work and Ashley's voice are simply great.
Ashley's quality, tone and control are simply amazing, she takes songs like Don't Know Why, Bobby McGee, Come Away With Me, I'm Yours, Time After Time, and sings them with ease..........
Now I get to listen to my CD, "First Take" from Something Different with Brad and Ashley. Comments from the group I'm with: solid talent, smooth, soothing, and beautiful. It's a winner! Congratulations, guys!
We would like to share an email we received after playing Dec 10, 2015 at the Willow Oaks Country Club in Richmond.
Brad & Ashley,
I can not think you enough for the wonderful performance last night!!! All I can say is WOW!!! I was blown away and left speechless when I saw you perform at another event last year, so it brought me great joy watching that same effect on others last night.
I received so many positive comments along with "where did you find these guys". Even the staff and people attending a separate event approached us commenting how incredible you were. One staff member said chills went down her back when listening to Ashley rehearse. I know a lot of people were asking for your information so I have no doubt we will see you again.
You helped make our Christmas social really special last night, thank you!!
All my best,
President, Rotary Club of Richmond
Welcome to "Something Different Duo"
We are a father/daughter duo that perform music from a variety of genres spanning multiple decades.
Brad Sindle, father and keyboard player, is responsible for all instrumentation during the performances. His keyboard set up includes an organ, synthesizer/sequencer, and digital piano.
Ashley (Sindle) Wenner is his only daughter and youngest child. She studied music in college, graduating with a music degree in voice. She is an accomplished entertainer with a wide range of vocal styles.
Brad came up with the name. He wants people to be able to say that the audience experiences “Something Different” with every song selection. His years of viewing musical acts made him realize that no matter how talented a solo or duo act may be, the use of a single instrument as accompaniment and/or a single musical style selected, would lead him to become bored after a half hour or so of listening. Therefore, their song choices vary not only in genre/style/era but in instrumentation. They change from the occasional a-cappella song, to solo piano/vocal arrangements, to fully orchestrated arrangements where he plays piano/organ/or synthesizer along with midi sequences that he has designed, performed, and saved.
Since starting this venture in spring of 2013, they have been well received at local venues and have recorded a CD for local distribution.
You and Ashley were very well received.... The few moments I walked through, the Reception and the Something Different Duo seemed very well suited. One of our Past District Governors, Jim xxxxx from Richmond told me twice that the singer was fabulous. I gave him your card and I also gave it to a number of others. I may have additional comments from others soon and will share them with you. Hope our Rotarians behaved themselves :)
"Everyone was so complimentary of your music and the fact that it was different…. appropriate for “Something Different”…… to have at a house party. I truly appreciate your willingness to travel this far to perform for us....."
......."Thanks again for making our party so special! I also understand one of my guests got information from you for a possible booking in the future. That’s awesome! "
Something Different with Brad and Ashley has performed at Sandpiper Reef for the past 12 months. They continue to pull in a growing fan base to enjoy popular easy listening music. Their play list seems to expand each month much to the delight of their devoted fans which have quickly become loyal restaurant customers as well. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
