"When Lamphere begins singing, everyone becomes very aware that this is not some non-chalant thing. It's a musical event!"
Strong voice. Great time, pitch and phrasing.
Stage command. Traditional style.
Prepare to be blown away as FrankLamphere, throwback to the famous pop singer-entertainers of the 1950-60's, gets set to perform. Whether accompanied by a big band or (more often) a small jazz group, the repertoire is loaded with fresh versions of traditional pop and jazz standards (not replications). Lamphere also sings in Italian (fluency), a specialty. A twenty year veteran nightclub and big stage entertainer, Lamphere will have a special appeal for fans of the Rat Pack and straight-ahead jazz. His style is bold and swingin'. Think of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones and Bobby Darin, rolled-into-one. His latest show offering "Back in the 60s" is available with 3, 6 and 11 piece bands.
A songwriter as well, his compositions, both music and lyrics, have gained him very favorable industry attention. A handful of these originals were released on the CD Frank Swings in 2012. The lead track "I Never Forgot" is featured in the award winning independent film Theresa Is a Mother.
Currently performing twice monthly at Jimmy's Charhouse, he held longtime steadies at Chicago's Peninsula Hotel and Jilly's, Lamphere performs regularly across the country and in Europe. He excels at nightclub and concert performances.
For corporate events (nationwide) Frank offers an incredibly diverse and ever changing nightclub type music show with live musicians, not karaoke background tracks. The show can be tailored for most events.
"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 jazz pianist-writerBenDockery.com
