Mamaa Saiz performs at Tranquil Cafe at 6pm SLT Tonight!

Yes, he’s irreverent; and he’s witty. But he’s also a smooth-as-silk guitarist. He sings in a voice all his own. He’s been charging his way through top Second Life music venues, lighting audiences on fire with his amazing musical variety: from smoky ballads to jazz classics; maybe a little country and western with a tear jerker and a dash of comedy for seasoning.

His acoustic guitar skills are first rate and he sings and plays 100% live with no backing tracks.  He has been influenced by many musicians including Carlos Jobim, Glenn Frye, James Taylor, and more.

“I’ve made a deal with Linda Ronstadt: I don’t play her songs and she don’t play mine. And if I stay 100 feet away I don’t have to go to jail – again.”
                                                                                        – Mamaa Saiz


Performing on July 26th at 6pm SLT

About Homes For Our Troops
HFOT builds homes as a departure point for Veterans to rebuild their lives, and once again become highly productive members of society. Despite their life-altering injuries, many Veterans have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, or started families. Empowered by the freedom a mortgage-free and specially adapted home brings, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and return to their life’s work of serving others. Many have embraced their roles as motivational speakers, sharing their messages of persevering through tragedy with groups and classrooms around the country; others take to a national platform to promote awareness of veteran suicide, homelessness and PTSD. Their incredible stories are the driving force for the work for HFOT.
