Italian Singer - Live Band CLASSIC ITALIAN MUSIC FOR ALL OCCASIONS
"Quando Lamphere canta ci si sente coinvolti in un grande evento musicale"
Chicago Italian band - Franco and his Italian Band Meraviglioso
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? Now add to the list, the subsequent generation, Bobby Darin, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, Dion among 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 suffering 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 “Meraviglioso” for your next Italian themed event. This music deserves to be heard in a live, professional manner. 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. Franco on the other hand is a professional vocalist that 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 study 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! "Meraviglioso", Franco’s hand-picked band of professional musicians are second to none at playing this intricate music and creating the proper backgrounds for Franco to be effective and believable while performing the classic Italian-American music of the past. No one that we’re aware of has such a vast repertoire of Italian, retro Italian-American pop, big band & jazz songs 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 born and raised 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.
