 "Shaffer exudes the grandeur of the golden eras of American music, not just in sound and style, but in looks and persona as well.  In many ways you might say she was born 50 years too late, but the past’s loss is truly the present’s gain.  Laura Shaffer is refreshingly ours to enjoy right now.”

Singer/recording artist Laura Shaffer was born and raised in the Entertainment Capital of The World, and started performing professionally when she was still a teenager.  Honing her chops on the world famous Las Vegas Strip, she has appeared and continues to appear at all of its major hotels:  The Wynn, The Cosmopolitan, The Mandarin Oriental, Aria, The Mirage, Mandalay Bay, Paris, Venetian, The MGM, and on and on.   Having garnered an international fan base with her glamorous vintage look and her sultry take on the great jazz, torch, and swing standards, she also performs limited engagements nationally and internationally, as well as for gala events, celebrity launches, and heads of state.  From showrooms to ballrooms to nightclubs, from small combo to full big band/orchestra, the “Noir Nightingale” enthralls with the glamour and allure of Golden Era Hollywood and the dazzle of “Vintage Vegas”, combined with a warm and engaging vocal style.  She is currently in production with her follow-up album to RKO Records' "Julie London Songbook", as well as a classic pin-up tribute calendar.  You can also find Laura at www.facebook.com/laurashaffersmidnightrefrain,

Laura’s musical ability comes by way of her father, pianist/arranger/composer Charlie Shaffer, who has written for the likes of Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, and The Houston Symphony Pops Orchestra, as well working with such legends as Peggy Lee, Lola Folana, Joe Williams, Debbie Reynolds, and others.  Her brother is also a musician, singer, and composer.
