Sam Fazio

Why book Sam Fazio?

Sam Fazio's music is hip, elegant and bold. He puts a wonderful new spin on the songs we love. Whether he’s singing a swing standard, pop classic or love ballad, his soulful yet classic style comes shining through. Sam’s style is reminiscent of classic singers like Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin, yet current like the sounds of Michael Buble. Sam performs with the best jazz musicians in Chicago as a duo, trio or quartet. Sam will work with your organization to meet your music preferences and budget requirements.





"Frank Sinatra reborn!" (per one of our Sinatra fan guest)

The decision to have Sam Fazio at our cocktail hour and reception was honestly one of our best decisions for our wedding day. He was absolutely wonderful to work with from the planning process to sounding flawless during the day. Having live music, and specifically Sam Fazio, provided the fun, romantic, elegant atmosphere that we were looking for.

We actually had several guests come up to us and comment that they thought it was a recording playing and were shocked to find Sam Fazio and the band playing!
My husband and I still talk about how great the band sounded, even weeks after our wedding.

Sam Fazio is very prompt in his replies, dependable, adaptable to your requests and wants, and most importantly, really delivers above and beyond your expectations.

We are SO happy with our decision and will be recommending Sam Fazio to everyone and anyone we know!

Couldn't be happier

Sam Fazio and his band played at our wedding reception. They did an excellent job communicating with us prior to the performance as we were selecting music and planning the music for our reception.

During the reception their music got all ages of people out on the dance floor. His music is fantastic and he was very flexible in responding to the different events that occurred during our wedding such as speeches, cutting of the pie (or cake), and special dances. Sam and his band were great to work with and we definitely recommend them!
