ARIELLA is a talented duo with a passion for blues, jazz and soul. Hailing from Sarasota Florida, their charismatic singer and songwriter manages to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound. She is teamed with her husband, Nicolaas Kraster, a talented musician from Fredonia NY, in 2009.

The pair has set the bar high with their excellent songs, music, and live shows. They have performed at iconic venues, such as NYC’s Blue Note, as well as international dates throughout Canada, the USA and the UK.   

ARIELLA will perform at the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Friday, March 4 at 8pm.  Tickets are $15 for members and $18 for nonmembers.   Advance tickets are available at Fogartyville.

From Facebook:  ARIELLA is a singer-songwriter from Sarasota, FL that performs original+cover music. She is best known for her powerhouse vocals and an alluring energetic stage presence. She and her husband perform at local music venues and are available for hire.

On a personal note- I have watch ARIELLA and Nicolass perform many times! They are 2 of the most talented musicians that I have ever listened to perform. If you haven’t seen them, Fogartyville in Sarasota is the perfect setting to see them!
