Don D'Angelo

Why book Don D'Angelo?

I do a tribute to Sinatra and the crooners, as well as Elvis! I recently entertained at the Boulder Chophouse Tavern twice. My goal is to make your event special! I also do singing telegrams, weddings, birthday parties, senior events, fund raisers, and corporate parties, and restaurants. (See Bill Porter's review in the Denver Post at Nona's restaurant.) I recently made an appearance at the MS fund raiser on Oct 26 at Infinity Park in Denver as Elvis!
I have entertained at the ALS Rocky Mt. Chapter fund raisers the last two years, and will be there again this year on May 2.
The American Red Cross invited me to sing at their annual fund raiser in Sterling, Co.

Fantastic Performer!

We hired Don for a holiday party and could not be happier. He was easy to work with, very fairly priced and he sings beautifully. Don is a real joy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone. Hire him for your next event, you won't be sorry!

Top-Notch Performer!

“I am the Events Manager the nonprofit, The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter. Our organization helps people who have Lou Gehrig's Disease. On Friday, May 11, 2012 we held our annual Sunset Gala event at the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Denver, a formal fundraiser with almost 200 guests in attendance. Don D'Angelo was hired to perform jazzy and Frank Sinatra-type of music during the cocktail reception and silent auction. Don's music and performance was top-notch and really enhanced the atmosphere of our event. Don helped to create a fun and positive, yet relaxed atmosphere with his music. Don was professional, friendly, and extremely easy to work with. He arrived on time to set-up, was dressed in the appropriate attire, and was dedicated to making our event a success. He graciously allowed our emcee to make announcements using his sound system, so that our guests were continuously informed. We received many compliments on Don's music that evening and would definitely consider hiring him for future events.”

Senior Connection shows welcome Don annually

Don has appeared at over twenty Senior Connection shows along the front range over the past eight years. He may show up as Johnny Cash and do a western medley, as Frank Sinatra and do Rat Pack songs, or as Elvis!
He is punctual and you can tell he enjoys his work. We will have him perform again in 2014.

I hired Don to sing at my sister's 30th birthday party in Denver. I am from out of town, but Don was easy to work with over email and phone. From what I heard, he did an excellent job and really added something to the party. My sister said she loved it!

Don at the diner...

actually it is a malt shop. We had Don come and sing for us in August and what a wonderful job he did. We very much enjoyed listening to him singing a medley of oldies for us and will definitely ask for him to come back again! He's one of the good guys!

Don acted as both emcee and entertainment for our charity walk event on Saturday, and I was very happy with his level of professionalism and talent. We have our event in Denver every year and I will definitely look to book him for the event next year.

Highly recommended!

I work as an Activity Director at a senior community/nursing facility in Boulder. I hired Don to sing love songs by Sinatra and Elvis for a Valentine's Day event. The seniors loved him! Many were singing along and commented favorably afterwards. He is very professional to work with, showed up early, and was very comfortabel engaging with our residents. I will definitely hire him again!

Don is so much fun

I work at a nursing home that hosts Don for frequent music entertainment. He is great with our residents and always goes above and beyond what is expected of him. He is definitely a favorite around here and residents will often request him for specfic events. In addition to having a fantastic voice, he interacts well with the people he is preforming to. He does a great Elvis impersonation and will take time posing with staff and residents for pictures afterwards. When other entertainers cancel last minute, Don is one who you can count on to be there without much notice which is definitely a life saver. He is so much fun to have, I would highly recommend him!

Great singing voice... attentive to our needs.

My wife and I hired Don for our wedding in which we wanted certain songs sung. One in particular Don did not know or had not sung before. We gave him a copy and he went out of his way to get the lyrics in written form. He practiced it I don't know how many times... and when he sang it... it was though he had sung it many times before. His voice was more than what we would have imagined. He was very sincere... in "getting it right" for us. He was open to singing outside at our wedding which being outside is not necessarily the best venue especially if there is a wind. Don's equipment and his voice did the job without trouble. We were both appreciative that he was willing to sing outside for our wedding. He delivered professionalism in every aspect of conversing with him about our arrangements and he delivered beyond our expectations. He got great reviews afterwards. Thank you Don.

We recently ate at a restaurant he was performing there and it was a pleasure to eat and dine listening to his collection of Sinatra and others. Don is unique in the fact that for every performance he is sincere in doing it right without being flamboyant…

Don is the one you want for your event!

Don has a great crooner voice. He is very professional and accommodating. Our event was over 100 and many compliments were told to me. His range of songs from Sinatra and Bennett to country music is vast. I would recommend Don for any event you might be having.

He not only sings but truly entertains the audience. His repetore' is massive and brings out songs I have not heard in years. I Truly enjoy watching and listening to Don perform every time I see him.

I have hired Don on multiple occasions to do our happy hour entertainment at a senior citizen community. He is one of the best entertainers we hire. Don is always ready to go before his gig is supposed to start. He is very professional and gets my residents involve. I would highly recommended him for any events.

Great Singer!

Don was great and sang songs that kept the party going from the 50s. He sang Elvis, Dean Martin, and so many more. He dressed as Elvis in the 2nd part of the performance and really had the group swinging. Very professional and a great voice! I would highly recommend Don to anyone looking for a talented singer to join their party. You won't be disappointed.

Don was terrific!

Even though it was short notice and not in his immediate area he agreed to play guitar and sing a couple songs at my daughter's 30th birthday party in Westminster, CO. My daughter said he was very good and a real nice man. I did hear his demo's and he has a fabulous voice. You will not be disappointed if you hire him.

Overview

My hope is that when anyone hears my renditions of the great songs from the past, they will leave with a great appreciation for the influence that Elvis and Sinatra, the crooners and the blues masters had on American music. I hope that the love songs will cause you to be a little more in love with the one you're in love with. Perhaps your passion for music will be revived. Maybe you'll get out of your seat and dance your little heart out!!!

Don D'Angelo

Born about 2 hours from New Orleans, I started listening to Elvis at an early age. My appreciation for Sinatra came later. Generally, each show is an hour, unless requested otherwise. I also do singing telegrams. I can show up at the workplace or a restaurant and do a surprise serenade when requested. I use pre-recorded music, with Bose and Peavey equipment for high quality sound, or just guitar. I have been a resident of Colorado since 1989. I started singing professionally in 2003. I have always loved music, and started imitated Elvis at an early age. My hobbies: lying on the beach at the Gulf of Mexico every few years, playing chess now and then, going to movies. When I read, it's non fiction. Love to go on mountain drives in the summer and fall, visiting mom and pop cafes there. Love to go to Bronco games once or twice a year! Love to sing and entertain, tell a joke now and then. Love to hang out with friends and family as much as possible, playing board games, laugh and have fun! Loving life!!!

Set List

Songs performed in the crooner tribute include songs by Sinatra and other crooners: Dean Martin, Perry Como, Al Martino, Tony Bennett. Songs performed in the Sinatra tribute are: It had to be you, All of me, New York New York, My Way, Young at Heart, Strangers in the Night, I've got the world on a String, Fly me to the Moon, Summer Wind, Someone to watch over Me, It was a very good Year, All the Way, I've got you under my skin, That's Life, and others.
