Willie & Jan Nininger, versatile entertainers, perform a wide variety of music including Country, Folk and Rock ‘n Roll that will bring back fond memories. As a duo, their voices blend in perfect harmony as they sing romantic songs such as “Unchained Melody” and Frank and Nancy Sinatra’s “Something Stupid.” Their replication of Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” is certain to keep toes tapping and audiences grinning.
Willie Nininger is an entertaining and versatile Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist, well known for his extensive repertoire, spontaneous sense of humor and flat-picking guitar technique. Willie plays in clubs and concerts across the U.S. and Europe. While living in Switzerland, he won the national “Entertainer of the Year” award. He has written songs for the “Captain Kangaroo Show” and kids’ TV “After School Specials” and has appeared on TV variety shows. He performs the National Anthem for the NY Mets annually.
Jan Nininger, a lover of harmony, has a keen knack for impersonation, replicating voices in song from Skeeter Davis – “End of the World”, to a comedic rendering of the “All In the Family” theme song as Jean Stapleton. Jan sings and plays the guitar with Willie and his band, up and down the east coast and in England. She and Willie perform theme shows such as Irish, Country, Holiday, Tropical, TV and Movie Songs, Famous Duets, Oldies, Originals and tributes to performers such as the Beatles, Carole King/James Taylor, Paul Simon, Simon and Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, Phil Ochs, and many more.
