"Make 'em laugh ... Make 'em cry ... Make 'em sing ... Make 'em sigh."

  - Pullitzer Prize writer, Ron Suskind

Hi! I'm Dwight Sullivan, balladeer, songwriter, and sound engineer serving the Sarasota area year-round from Venice, Florida. I've designed this site so you can see where I've been and where I'll be appearing next; listen to samples of my sound, get information about me performing at your Private Party and, as they become available, listen to full-length recordings of my original songs.

If you want to hear how I sound, click on Listening Room where you'll find recorded clips of a few of the cover songs that I perform live. If you like what you hear, check "Appearing Next..." to the right of this page or visit my Private Parties page for information about me performing at your special event.

At the bottom of this page are links to four collections of full-length recordings. Most of these are my original songs. A few of them are my arrangements of my favorite song "standards". I will be populating these collections as I complete recordings of them. So, check back from time to time as it grows.

Other Services I Can Provide

How can I help you achieve the sound you want? Besides musical performance, I offer two other services to bring my experience to your show, occasion or project: As a Live Music Producer, I can supply a PA system, produce your program and provide you as much organizational assistance as you need. As a Voice-Over Actor, I can bring a lifetime of vocal experiences to your project for commercial, narration or character voice-over work.
