Here at Rat Pack Enterprises we do not use the term impersonator when referring to our Dean Martin performance. Have a look around the internet and what you'll mostly find are entertainers that may resemble Dean (most at least have dark hair) and that sing his songs accompanied by background (karaoke without the words) tracks. End of similarity! Does your event deserve better than that?
Professional singer-entertainer of 25 years, Frank Lamphere, sings Dino and at times is very similar. He vocally captures lots of the ultra-particular Dean Martin inflections, distinctive note bending, "Italian-ness" and style that made Dean so popular. Close your eyes, listen carefully and for many, it's Dean. Especially if Frank wants to "pour-it-on". He does "it" with a live band of 3 to 17 musicians. And no, the "charts" purposefully are not identical to those of the Dean Martin records. That, gets back into "karaoke" territory. Like Lamphere's renditions, the band makes these songs, their own as well. (As they would have done in an actual Dean Martin nightclub performance) Very refreshing!
Available for a handful of Dino songs or an entire set (or more)

Dean Martin Tribute Show. A 45-90 minute homage to one of America’s most popular entertainers ever, Dean Martin. Lamphere, who performs this show with an all-star band, has been a standout perfomer on the jazz music scene for years. Frank's long list of credits include: headlining act at the Chicago Festa Italiana, performances in New York, Las Vegas, singing for television commercials, fronted the jazz trio at the “5” star Peninsula Hotel, singing in front of thousands at United Center and U.S. Cellular Field, and concerts in Milan, Italy.
Lamphere brings to this show, a great admiration for this classic music genre and especially for his favorite singer, Dean Martin. The show features Frank's sharp historical perspective, some good laughs, awesome musicianship and certain vocal characteristics that at times, make him sound very much like Dean.
