FRANK SINATRA MUSICAL TRIBUTE - AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE
You have found the professional alternative to the Frank Sinatra copycats.
"Frank Sings Frank" a live band "Karaoke-Sinatra" alternative
Modern day Rat Pack style crooner Frank Lamphere offers an exclusive Frank Sinatra tribute show entitled Frank Sings Frank.
Lamphere unlike many, doesn't attempt the very difficult Sinatra impersonation. Instead, he sings the tunes in his own swinging style.
Performing the Sinatra repertoire with a group of 3-8 musicians, gives Lamphere's renditions a distinctive jazzier sound then Sinatra's recorded versions. There's a very prominent and powerful rhythm section. Frank describes this as his "Big Swing Engine". To get that sound and feel, the right players are needed. He's got 'em. Then with the groove clearly defined, there are lots of openings for impromptu lines, tasty accents and smile deserving solos by some of the top horn players in the business. He's got them too! All the while, Lamphere swings hard, sometimes sings softly, holds crisp notes, sings a little behind the beat, but always at the right spots, to make the whole performance, finger snappingly extraordinary. "Ol' Blue Eyes" would have approved.

Here is what you usually get, when you hire a
Frank Sinatra impersonator
The web is filled with Frank Sinatra impersonators, that sing the songs in the identical manner of Sinatra. First of all, you'll probably agree that about 1 in 10 have a sufficient voice. Therefore, 9 in 10 do not. Second, they are using prerecorded tracks (no band or orchestra). These tracks are often made with electronic instruments that don’t even come close to sounding like the instruments they were intended to substitute. How uninspiring and unexciting! There can be little spontaneity by the vocalist when he is locked into this framework. Lastly, there are few professionals out there. One becomes a professional with intensive study and from working regularly at his chosen profession. These days there are truly few performing opportunities for a singer to become proficient at commanding a band and a crowd of attentive listeners, aside from the karaoke bars that dominate. For most, that isn't good enough.
The Bottom Line
If you hire a Frank Sinatra impersonator you generally wind up with a well-meaning, somewhat talented individual copying Sinatra's precise arrangements (Never equaling or superseding them). He does his best to exactly copy Frank Sinatra's phrasing, intentionally changes lyrics (as in "...That's why this chick is a champ"), hand gestures, and out of date humor (broads, ring a ding ding) etc... But the voice? What about the quality of the voice? More often than not, it’s simply mediocre and leaves the listeners high and dry.
