"When Lamphere begins singing, everyone becomes very aware that this is not some non-chalant thing. It's an event!"
ENTERTAINMENT FOR ITALIAN EVENTS
Italian themed events with more than a little, Italian accent.
Were there ever more prolific singers in American pop music than: Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Perry Como, and Vic Damone? To include the generation that followed, add to the list Bobby Darin, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, Dion and others. These musical superstars are as Italian-American as mamma's sugo, nonna's polpette and zio's homemade wine.
Italian-Americans have had an important role in shaping a great American culture (a culture that is sadly lacking today) and have a very rich tradition that includes a strong love of family, the worlds’ favorite cuisine and of course exceptional music. You are undoubtedly well aware of this!
For the very reason that you are likely to take your music seriously you should consider hiring Frank Lamphere and his band “Franco and the Rumpy Cats” for your next Italian themed event. Look around, most of what remains of this magical music are low priced, overly vibratoed, fedora wearing singers that all use the same annoying karaoke tracks. Many find this presentation a misrepresentation, that deserves much better. Franco has listened to the old songs since he can remember, has spent a lot of time in Italy, speaks the language and has also performed there numerous times. In fact one of the main reasons that Franco decided to learn the Italian language was to understand what Dean Martin was singing about, in so many of his recordings. No kidding! One thing for sure, Frank, Dean and the others were the very best, ever. Theirs are not easy shoes to fill. Franco gets pretty close while not attempting to do impersonations.
No karaoke tracks here! The Rumpy Cats, Franco’s hand-picked band of professional musicians are second to none at playing this intricate music and creating the proper backgrounds for Franco. No one that we’re aware of has such a vast repertoire of Italian, retro Italian-American pop, big band & jazz to choose from. It is Franco’s huge repertoire that guarantees a stunning variety of high quality music that can change from show to show.
Franco, although living in the Chicago area met his Italian native, wife Daniela while in Rome. They return to Italy every few years with their children Deanna and Francesco.
A high caliber musical act that features a great singer of Italian songs backed by a superb band.
The perfect choice for Italian fests, Italian weddings, or any Italian themed event. Nationwide
