I have to admit I was pretty terrified the first time I did live VOG. Though I’d prerecorded many times for announcements in big arenas and stadiums, there’s no “take two” when twenty thousand people are listening live. But it went very well, and I kept getting called back time and time again to do more. And now, I really like it. Please give my demo a listen. If you like what you hear, let’s work together. My show blacks are already packed. Call me at (770) 354-0772 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some nice things people have said about my work.
“Tony has the voice of a honey-coated thunderbolt.”
Mike Gatti – Creative Director
“What can I say about the man with the voice? Tony’s voice is so distinctive and commanding that it grabs your attention through the noise, whether that’s the world’s busiest airport or a crowd of 16,000 celebrating in a Las Vegas arena. Beyond the voice, Tony is one of the most efficient and accommodating voice talents I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my twenty-five-year career.”
Keith Elliott – Technical Director
“Tony Messano is a professional and calming presence in a chaotic backstage. His vast experience means he can anticipate my needs as a stage manager and is always close at hand in a pinch. I always look forward to my next opportunity to work with Tony.”
Kevin Kielty – Stage Manager
“Tony is awesome! As a former Creative Director he really gets the big picture, and his voiceover talent is perfect for setting the tone and guiding attendees through an event. We have used him for video voice-over, awards and many live events. He is an invaluable member of the team.”
T. Scott Barrett – Show Director
“Tony Messano has been my go-to for voiceovers for the past 12 years. Regardless of media; from broadcast TV, corporate narration, studio pre-records for event content, or live announcements/VOG to audiences of over 30K. He is an amazing talent, always professional, consistent, and easy to work with.”
Philip Aitken – Creative Director
“Tony Messano is a jaw-droppingly talented VOG (Voice of God) both pre-recorded and live. I’ve heard Tony pronounce names that were difficult to read, much less voice live. With his years of VOG experience, Tony can turn on dime with last minute script changes and even last minute role changes as when he was asked to emcee on stage during a VOG booking. His vocal quality and technique cut through crowd chatter like a hot knife through butter. Experience + Resonating Voice + Flexibility = Tony Messano, VOG.”
Kelley Buttrick – Voice Actor
“During my almost forty year career working for Doppler Studios in Atlanta, Georgia as a recording engineer, sound designer and musician, I have recorded and edited some of the best voice talent/voice actors from across the country. I must say that Tony Messano certainly falls into this category. What sets Tony apart from others is his vast experience in so many other aspects of what is involved in using his instrument, which is his voice, to make a project successful for his clients. Tony’s experience as a creative and musician plus his knowledge of recording technology contribute greatly to a positive outcome whenever he enters the studio. When Tony’s name showed up as voice talent for a project I was scheduled to work on, I was always confident that things would be good and my job would be both easier and my work well received.”
Granger Beem – Recording Engineer/Sound Designer/Musician
