Robert Olivera


Dynamic variety vocalist - Robert Olivera sings with a splendid baritone voice perpetuating the wonderful songs of the past.


Performances have sent Robert traveling across the country and beyond to various places such as Chicago, San Diego, Branson, Canada, and The Philippines.  These include a Top Brass farewell banquet for the ambassador from Great Britain, hospitality parties for diplomats, and "The Cal Star Show" (a producer for country stars such as Roy Clark, Ray Price, Freddy Fender, the late Marty Robbins, Loretta Lynn, etc.).  In Branson, Robert once guest performed for comedian and movie songwriter Bill Chappell as opening act for the world famous "Platters".  He was a guest performer for Grandpa and Ramona Jones (stars of "Hee Haw" and "The Grand Ole Opry"), for Ragtime Piano star Johnny Maddox, and as an honorary member of the Rackensack Music Society, for grammy award winner Jimmy Driftwood (writer of the song "The Battle of New Orleans").  Robert sang for many years as a contract performer at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas, America's only facility that preserves the Ozark heritage and presents it as a living history.

Song selections in Robert's shows were sung by legendary vocalists such as Ed Ames, Eddy Arnold, Robert Goulet, Gordon MacRae, Marty Robbins, Frank Sinatra, Vaughn Monroe, Vic Damone, Al Jolson, Tony Bennett, Engelbert Hunperdinck, Frankie Lane, Johnny Mathis, Matt Monro, Nelson Eddy, Johnny Cash, Don Ho, and many more.  Toward the end of his programs he will frequently ask for requests from the audience!

He has provided entertainment for an array of musical variety shows, performing arts centers, resorts, organizations, retirement communities, and private functions for many years.

Benefits and fund raisers are part of Robert's itineraries.  These charitable organizations include Leukemia Research, The Salvation Army, Lions Club International, City of Hope, The Rio Grande Children's Home, etc.

Besides his love of music, Robert has a great interest in organic gardening and growing exotic fruit trees having spent the early part of his life in the tropical Philippine Islands.

While consistently displaying his masterful voice and repertoire the response Robert evokes is heartwarming, the memories he touches with his unique renditions of familiar melodies resonate long after his shows.  The love for his craft shines through - he celebrates both the music and the audience!
