Frank Lamphere performs at The Avenue on 53 in Elk Grove Village in 2018
It'll be 1967 (musically speaking) when Frank plays the Elk Vegas lounge Jimmy's in 2018
"One of the premier vocalists in the entire country" - Chicago Jazz Magazine
Singer Frank Lamphere and his powerful jazz trio are playing in the Elk Vegas Lounge at Jimmy's Charhouse, in Elk Grove. Jimmy's (under fresh ownership as of Nov 2015), plays host to Rat Pack Jazz on select dates in 2018 The shows will take place from 8:00-11:00 pm.
This is the type of live music ("old school" jazz-pop singer with a world-class jazz trio) that locals and out-of-towners search for, but can never seem to find. You're lucky to discover one or two such acts in America's major cities like: New York, LA, Las Vegas, and here in Chicago; but not too many other places and not likely at this level.
Yes, there will be uncontrollable foot tapping and some customer lip synching as Lamphere performs the common and uncommon in a repertoire of more than 2500 songs. Swing, big band, jazz, some classic Latin, a handful of 1950-60s pop/rock, French, Spanish & Italian. But almost all, pre-70s.
Lamphere was the former vocalist at Jilly's Naperville, the Peninsula Hotel (downtown Chicago), headliner at the Festa Italiana Taylor Street, infrequent Las Vegas performer (Cosmopolitan, Palms) and does perform internationally. In addition to his own various sized ensembles he occasionally teams-up with other top bands like the Chicago Jazz Orchestra. Frank a music publisher of his own original music, has one of those featured prominently in a major independent film.
