An accomplished singer who has blazed his own Rat Pack influenced trail
There are few in the music business that really are doing justice to yesterday's pop and jazz melodies. One of singers that has excelled at the forgotten art of interpreting standards and swing is certainly Frank Lamphere. Critics agree that he is part of that select group of music professionals that actually have the right sound and the right voice for this genre. His strong and resonant baritone may evoke a 1950s Dean Martin, the swing phrasing might bring Buddy Greco or Nat Cole to mind, the Frank Sinatra imprint is there, but make no mistake; Frank Lamphere is a traditional pop vocalist that has a style all his own.
Former vocalist at Jilly's and Peninsula Hotel, Frank regularly works with the highest caliber jazz musicians in Chicago, New York and Las Vegas. He has performed in shows across the U.S. and Italy. Frank is not only a pro singer but music contractor, that is hired by organizations to perform for their important events. Frank has recently headlined at the Ottawa Jazz Festival, and Taylor Street Chicago Festa Italiana. A recording artist, Lamphere is recording (June 2019) his third project an EP to be entitled "America Swinging". This will include his original "Las Vegas" with an "on fire" big band arrangement. His two previous CDs "Ain't Love a Kick" and "Frank Swings" continue to receive national and international airplay. The lead track on Frank Swings, I Never Forgot, is featured in the award-winning movie Theresa Is a Mother.Whether crooning center-court at a "packed" United Center, poolside at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas, or oceanside at the Fountainebleau in Miami Beach, Frank Lamphere delivers an impressive and memorable vocal performance.

"Off the cuff and swinging, spectacularly!" "Has a powerful yet effective voice that switches from romantic balladeer to 60's pop star, on a dime!" -Nightclub Review Magazine
"The Latest In a Long Line of Neo-Sinatra's and Really, One of the Best" - Mr. Lucky Magazine
"Frank, you knocked 'em dead Saturday night, again!" - Music Agent
"His voice, now more than ever before, is a wonderful blend of masculine strength and smooth, rounded edges. Rather than sounding like someone who is hesitant, Frank’s style embodies bridled strength. It’s classy, it’s powerful, but it’s never rude or unkind" - Ben Dockery
"He seems more modeled on the casual Dean Martin manner, especially in lazy, slow tempo where he slurs and sloshes some vowel sounds"
