Quality? From his first note, listeners say to themselves, "Hey, now this guy can really sing!" Resonant, in-tune, distinctive, yet traditional and intentionally finger-snappingly swinging. Which probably explains why he is sought after and hired to perform across the country. The band playing behind him? Awesome! They should be! They're the top players in the biz! Originality? No! Not another fedora wearing Frank Sinatra or cigarette clenching, Dean Martin karaoke-copycat. Rather, Lamphere is a renown, pro singer that performs this great music in his own style.
His goal? Capture a "chunk" of the Rat Pack musical vibe, not outright imitation. Frank Lamphere fits this musical genre like-a-glove.
Wide appeal?People of all ages are very appreciative of a classic Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra song, sung well and in "that" elusive style. Not only does Frank Lamphere sing the heck-out-of those songs, but his humor and stage presence are a force. Dean Martin? (Lamphere's all-time favorite) Find someone that sounds more like him (when he wants to) and that has a larger repertoire! You probably won't!
Versatility?Lamphere's realistic interpretations of rockin' Elvis,
powerful Tom Jones, and confidence exuding Bobby Darin numbers, are a fun change-of-pace for all. It's quite unusual for a vocalist to "transcend" musical genres so well; Frank Lamphere does just that.
International?Surprise surprise. Lamphere sings in Italian, French and even some Spanish. In fact, he performs in Europe every few years.
Available for performance worldwide
Frank Lamphere, without exception, performs with a live band, 3-18 musicians. Not background tracks. No drum machines, ever.
As swinging a band as there is on the planet! Guaranteed!
