When I had just posted I needed a Frank Sinatra Impersentaior for a nursing home performance for my residents he was one of the first to reach out he communicated well from the beginning to the end he addressed any questions and concerns I had in a timely matter . Very professional I didn’t know what to expect because I have had bad experiences in the past but that was not the case with Mr. Jerry he had an amazing performance he interacted with my residents and everyone enjoyed it very much can’t wait to hire him again for my next even ! Thank you Jerry
I hired Jerry to sing at my home for my husband’s surprise birthday party. He was extremely professional, on time, a great singer, funny and a genuinely nice person. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.
My family and friends had the best time with Jerry. He sing amazing and he has a great sense of humor
Jerry was not only a fantastic singer, but the perfect professional as well.
He showed up early was set up on time and was great with communication.
His performance was fantastic, adding great humor and charm to his delightful voice.
He sang through several songs, adding personal touches for our honoree, and was engaging with the entire audience.
We would rehire in a minute.
My seniors were so happy. Jerry sings amazing. Great personality. We booked the following show at the show of how great he is. I truly recommend !
Jerry is a great singer and an outstanding showman. He really worked the room and was enjoyable to watch. Perfect voice for the job. It’s not easy to compare to the man Frank Sinatra, but Jerry sure comes close. I will definitely call him for future events.
We had decided on a New York theme for our post-elopement party and started looking for the right band for the evening. Jerry Costanzo was the first that came up in a search right after me and my husband thought of it. We immediately thought “that’s what we want.” We kept on with the search but kept coming back to Jerry. He was quick to respond to our inquiry, answered all our questions and was a breeze to work with throughout the whole process. He and his band were incredible! They were total professionals and such amazing talents. Jerry even acted as MC. We couldn’t have asked for better entertainment.
Jerry was a pleasure to work with! He was quick to respond, asked great questions about the event, and made the booking and planning process very easy. Our attendees loved Jerry and his quartet. They brought great energy to our Awards Dinner, and several attendees commented on how great the entertainment was. I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire Jerry for our Rat Pack Era themed Company Awards Dinner.
Jerry is a true professional. He arrived early to our venue, immediately set up and was able to troubleshoot a technical problem on the spot. Besides sounding just like Sinatra and Nat King Cole, he was engaging and interacted with our audience. Our clients loved Jerry as they were dancing in their seats, and making multiple song requests...Jerry also sang a variety of songs from various artists and mixed it up with some Christmas melodies. I will definitely be hiring Jerry again in the future, and he even does shows at your home, not just corporate events. Thank you Jerry for making our client event so memorable and fun!
Everyone loved the performance that Jerry Costanzo provided! The event was Casino Night with a rat pack atmosphere, Jerry delivered! Can't wait to book him for our next event.
Jerry was wonderful !! We genuinely enjoy his singing he is an excellent entertainer.
Rest assure, I’ve done the legwork for you. No need to look elsewhere because I reviewed many other performers and Jerry is the best! I recently hosted a farewell party for my 18 year old son who’s off to college this fall. He has been a Frank Sinatra fan since he was 12 years old! We decided to surprise him with a Frank Sinatra impersonator. But let me tell you. Jerry is not a cheesy impersonator! He is an elegant gentleman with a voice that belongs on a big stage! Jerry was easy to communicate with from beginning to end. His personality is easy going and very much down to earth. He engaged with the crowd and made my son feel like a super star! Jerry was definitely the highlight of our party leaving us all wanting more. Thank you Jerry Costanzo. Our farewell party for our son was a huge success thanks to you!
Jerry could not have been better! We had a surprise birthday event at the office for our CEO’s 50th and Jerry’s Sinatra playing and energy could not have made him happier. A huge hit. Above and beyond. I will be checking out Jerry’s shows.
Jerry was more than can be expected. He was a hit for my mother’s 100th birthday party. She’s still talking about Jerry and how she knew all the songs. She felt no one sings that way anymore
Thank you so much for your professionalism and talent
Jerry and his Gotham City band Were unbelievable their professionalism and excellence to detail where second to none. Jerry’s vocals touched the hearts and souls of our family leaving us with memories that will last forever…
Jerry was absolutely amazing! I researched a good amount of performers and once I heard him I knew he was the winner and I was 101% correct. He played for my grandpas 80th birthday and everyone was so impressed! I want to throw another party just to hire him again :) I could not recommend him enough, you won’t be disappointed.
Jerry did a fantastic job the day of the event and was a pleasure to work with. From initial outreach to the conclusion of his performance Jerry handled himself in a responsive and professional manner, not to mention his vocal talent. Jerry delivered a fantastic performance helping celebrate a 90th birthday with over 100 friends. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some fun and talented live entertainment.
Jerry was great to work with, flexible, worked offed the crowd. Our group loved him!
Jerry and his band did an excellent job at our wedding. Not only did he arrive early to set up and prepare but also stayed an additional 2 hours up and beyond his contract without any additional cost expected. He really went up and beyond during our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier with the music and service he provided. We would definitely use him again and highly recommend him for anyone needing entertainment at there event.
Karl and Mollie
If you are looking for someone who has a great voice and a performer to bring some personality to your event, look no further than Jerry. Not only was I asked by just about everyone where I found Jerry because he is that good, and everyone also said he sounded just like Frank Sinatra! We gave Jerry a playlist to sing and he did not disappoint. Don't hesitate, the videos and reviews here are very accurate. Thank you Jerry for making our event very special!
We hired Jerry for my grandmother’s birthday and he was absolutely amazing. Great voice and style, and made her feel so very special on her day. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough for any event.
Jerry was absolutely fantastic! My entire party just loved him. We were celebrating my mom's 90th birthday and she is a huge Frank Sinatra fan and Jerry did not disappoint!! I cannot recommend him highly enough. Totally worth every penny. He was very prompt, had excellent sound equipment, very professional, and he worked with what we had going on with the party. It was a casino themed party and we were going to shut down the games and he said no, let them continue to play and I will sing in the background as if they were really in Vegas. It worked out perfectly!! I would definitely hire him a thousand times over. In fact, my friends and I trying to come up with another idea for a party to have him come sing again!! Do not hesitate! Book him!!
We had a 100th birthday bash for my father-in-law. As a surprise, I wanted to hire a Frank Sinatra type performer. After searching for the right fit, I chose Jerry Constanzo, as he simply sounded the best of those I listened to. I certainly was not disappointed with that choice. He was amazing and his performance was a huge part in the success of our party. Not only was he an outstanding performer, but he’s a super nice guy. I wouldn’t hesitate in hiring him for an event…ever! Can’t thank him enough!
Jerry is the consummate professional; he arrived early, and set up his compact yet extensive sound equipment. He mingled with the crowd, but the best was when he opened his mouth to sing......if you closed your eyes, you'd think Frank S. was in the room. He covered all the classics from Frank, Dean, and others, and was very entertaining!
We'll certainly have him back!
We hired Jerry to come sing Frank Sinatra songs for our celebration of life gathering after a funeral at our home. He was on time, easy going, a wonderful and fun entertainer, has an amazing voice, looked sharp in his suit, covered all the best songs, interacted with the audience, AND he’s handsome!
We would definitely recommend and use him again should the opportunity arise!
Jerry did such a good job performing Sinatra songs. He sounds just like him! The videos do not do his voice justice. You DEFINITELY need to see him live to appreciate his work!
I loved that he was very engaged with the crowd and felt like you knew him for years.
My family and I will be keeping him in mind for future events.
Trust me, you need to book him! You will not regret it.
We had Jerry for a small party and he was fantastic. He is extremely talented, gracious and just a really nice person to work with. All of our guests adored him.
What a great performer. Jerry did an amazing job at our event. He was the highlight of our party. The performance was flawless. I believe he has turned a new generation into liking the music that he played. The compliments that I received after proved that. He has an amazing voice that just grabs your attention. I am very lucky that Jerry chose our event to perform at.
Thank you for the memorable night.
Jerry was an absolute professional from booking to performance. He sang beautifully and entertained everyone for two hours with songs from Frank Sinatra and friends. I highly recommend him.
We asked Jerry to recently play at a celebration of life. Jerry absolutely made the difference in the celebration. I had several people ask for his number and I would 100% ask him to play again if I ever needed a Sinatra singer.
Jerry put on a great show of Sinatra standards and others from the golden age of songwriting. He had great stage presence and had great rapport with the birthday girl. This was on a zoom call, which is an odd environment, but Jerry was very comfortable with the online setting. We did a sound check and the sound was great for his hour long performance. He was also overall very responsive and great to work with in preparing for the show. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jerry and hope to work with him again in the future.
Jerry Costanzo performed for an intimate gathering celebrating a 90th birthday, and he was great. His voice wonderfully brought back the Sinatra era, he was engaging and very entertaining. I would highly recommend Jerry for any future event.
We recently hired Jerry to perform at my Grandma's 100th birthday. Given the pandemic and given the average age of people attending the event, there were a number of 'rules' and 'precautions' that had to be taken leading up to the event. Jerry was so incredibly responsive and respectful throughout from beginning to end.
Now to the performance. You honestly couldn't ask for a better performer. He's got a fantastic voice and knows all of the hits. My Grandma hasn't been able to stop smiling since. We will recommend Jerry to all of our friends - a true entertainer!
Thank you Jerry!
I hired Jerry Costanzo for my Dad’s Birthday party. He put on an amazing concert, focusing on the Frank Sinatra songs that my Dad loves. He is truly an entertainer! If you are considering hiring a first class and professional entertainer for your special occasion, Jerry is your man! He sings Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and much more with effortless vocals and charm. Thank you, Jerry!
I asked Jerry to sing "The Lady is a Tramp" with special lyrics I wrote for my wife on her birthday. My version was "The Lady is a Champ". He did a beautiful job and had it posted on You Tube less than 24 hours after I sent him the lyrics. Highly recommended!
Jerry is a great performer. He sounds very close to Frank Sinatra. I highly recommend Jerry
We had guests of all ages for our NYE event and Jerry really engaged every one. He is a fantastic entertainer for any event
Jerry is an incredible entertainer!
Jerry was outstanding. He entertained for my Husbands surprise 65th Birthday singing Sinatra. He did not disappoint. You definitely want to hire him for your next event.
Jerry was incredible!!! My Dad was turning 85 and we were having a small family party in Sea Bright. I wanted to do something special. I am so glad I found Jerry!!! Our Dad was so blown away by the surprise! He sang with Jerry and we all danced throughout the entire set!! He was so great taking requests too!!!
Thank you Jerry, you made his birthday extra special!!!
Jerry and his band are extremely professional and super talented! Very responsive to email, easy to work with, on time and all-around excellent. Our guests danced the night away and thoroughly enjoyed the music. At first, I was apprehensive booking a band sight unseen only having the benefit of video as a sampling.
Jerry performed as a one man band this past weekend at my grandmother’s 90th birthday party and he was fantastic. I knew he would be good based on the video clips on his GS profile page, but his live performance was even better than expected. His voice was great, his Sinatra/crooner repertoire is extensive (the birthday girl was lobbing in requests and Jerry performed them all with ease), and the quality of the accompanying music and sound system was perfect. Jerry effortlessly engaged the crowd - a diverse mix of young and old - chatting to folks between songs as he walked around the venue and made sure people were enjoying themselves. Everyone had a blast and was very impressed, myself included.
On top of that, Jerry was super easy to work with from start to finish – responsive, flexible, and easy going, and he arrived and got set up right on schedule the day of the event. He is a talent and a true professional and it was a pleasure working with him. Thanks again, Jerry!
It was a perfect evening! Jerry is charming and has a wonderful voice. He sang Sinatra, Bobby Darin & had matching music during his breaks. Everyone loved him. Very engaging with the crowd. We will definitely have him back at our club!
With over 30 years experience in the music entertainment industry, both as a record promoter, and entertainment booking agent. I have come across hundreds of singers, entertainers and bands. Many among my roster stand out. One such stand out is Jerry Costanzo. Not only a great singer, and bandleader but someone I can always count on to go over and above for my many distinguished and discerning clients. Whenever the event requires great male vocals in a jazz ensemble, or big band setting, Jerry is my number one go to guy.
I wanted to send you my sincerest gratitude for the excellent job you and your ensemble did at my mother's party Saturday night.
The music was fabulous! The guests LOVED you and the band. Everything was so perfect! Every single person asked me where I found you and asked for your contact information. My brother said he could listen to you all night as could grand nephew!!!
I can not thank you enough for making the party exceptional!
Until the next party, where i will definately have you and your band again play,
Our company was having a 65th anniversary celebration and we decided on a Swing, Big Band, 1940's Era Themed event. One of our employees told us about Jerry and his Gotham City Swingers. We reached out to him and from the very start we knew we found the perfect band for our event. Jerry worked with us every step of the way and even helped us secure a Baby Grand piano and brought in professional swing dancers to put on an exhibition during the dinner portion of our event. Jerry's voice was unbelievable. The band was polished, top notch professionals. Our people are still talking about the party. I can't say enough about Jerry and the band, and we are planning on having them back for our annual holiday party.
Jerry was a hit when he performed his Rat Pack Tribute show in celebration of a 100th birthday at Atria Glen Cove! He has a wonderful voice, great enthusiasm, and catered to all in attendance! I will certainly be booking him again!
We had been at our aunt's wedding about five years ago, and we recalled all of the positive comments about Jerry. So, we decided to hire him for our event.
Needless to say, he was friendly, entertaining, and accommodated us with songs we had requested of him. He has a nice way about him and we received wonderful "reviews" from our family and friends.
Jerry Costanzo & His Gotham City Swingers are extremely professional and talented. His flawless voice and high energy performance will keep the audience wanting more! Amazingly entertaining!
From the moment I started to inquire about entertainment with Jerry, he was friendly and informative and easy spirited. My party was truly completed by his live entertainment. His warm personality and his fantastically smooth voice truly "wowed the guests". I had guests that ranged from the 25 year olds thru the 80 year olds and everyone sang, swayed and danced with Jerry. My party was a huge success and Jerry brought it all together!!
We hired Jerry and his nine-piece band for our wedding. Not only did the band sound unbelievable and Jerry kept the party going perfectly, it was a breeze working with Jerry in the lead up to the night. He was incredibly professional - returning emails promptly, working with us on the song list , the first dance (a medly of Moonlight Serenade and in the Mood). We felt completely confident because Jerry has so much experience and enjoyment in what he does. Thanks Jerry!
Dear Jerry, I can''t thank you enough, you guys were Great! The music was perfect, exactly what we were looking for and more. When you sang my parents wedding song and thay both started crying I lost it. You have a beautiful voice, I'm in love. My family and friends are still talking about you. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Nicole

What to Expect
Jerry captivates his audience with his smooth superb voice and leaves his listeners snapping their fingers, tapping their toes and whistling these timeless standards
Sophisticated, Elegant, Engaging and Versatile… These four words best describe Jerry Costanzo and his Groups. Vocalist and bandleader Jerry Costanzo has been performing nationwide Since 1995. Originally from the New York Metropolitan area, Jerry now calls Los Angeles home. As a seasoned veteran of the jazz music scene, Jerry knows exactly how to make your event or wedding a success, Jerry works with NY's and LA's finest musicians to perform for your event. If you are looking for the Rat Pack stylings of Frank, Dean and Sammy, and the best of “The American Song Book”, Jerry will not disappoint!
Jerry’s large repertoire of music allows him to take any request, and if you want a special arrangement, Jerry is more than happy to accommodate.
Jerry is available with his Trio, Quartet, Quintet, up to to his full 9-piece Gotham City Swingers Mini Big Band (3 saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, drums). Jerry Also performs solo with professional backing tracks. Ask about our Band/DJ Packages. It's a great way to turn up the heat after a few hours of Sophisticated, and elegant live music
In another time and place, Jerry Costanzo wouldn’t be interpreting the Great American Songbook. It’s likely he’d be conceiving it. "The Midwest Record" deemed the luminous vocalist and bandleader “A cat that knows how to swing it and grab the Vegas vibe that most of us never were old enough to experience,”while Jazz.com raved, “As all great singers do, he tells a story.”Raised in a musical family, Costanzo’s musical stencil was etched with the likes of Sinatra, Sammy, Dino, Perry Como, Nat King Cole. He was playing saxophone by third grade, and developed chops as a performer studying acting at New York’s Herbert Berghof Studio. A stint as personal aid and chauffeur for Al Pacino further apprised Costanzo to the arts, before he joined his father Joseph’s big band, The Memories Of Swing, first on sax and then as the outfit’s lead vocalist. While well into his 30s before the New Yorker recognized his calling card—bringing his musical idols back to life—Costanzo is making up for lost time. Today, the man behind the mic is a full-time troubadour and bandleader, surrounded by a Who’s Who of the jazz world. In 2008, his debut full-length album “Destination Moon,” served up a dozen swigin` classics, “Moon” earned Costanzo a dedicated live following, with gigs including the Annual Sinatra Birthday Bash at The Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, N.J., Lincoln Centers Mid Summer Night Swing, New York’s Metropolitan Room, Feinstein’s at The Loews Regency, Swing 46 Jazz & Supper Club, The Iridium Jazz Club, Jazz at The Kitano Hotel, The Waldorf Astoria, The Long Island, N.Y., Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, Hofstra University’s John Cranford Theater, The Suffolk Theater, The Harry Chapin Lakeside Theater, The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center and dozens of concert series, festivals and private posh gigs nationally and worldwide.
Chuck Taylor served as a writer and senior editor at Billboard magazine for 14 years. He has appeared on CNN, ABC’s “20/20,” VH1’s “Behind the Music,” A&E’s “Biography,” and been quoted in the New York Times, USA Today and numerous publications about music.

Thanks so much for the great job that you all did on Saturday night. Tom and I are both so happy and so thrilled that our friends and family had such a great time. The entire crowd raved about the music and the party. Jerry, everyone loved your songs, and the general format with you singing and alternating with the DJ...the whole thing was perfect. The song selection was perfect too. A little Frank Sinatra and a Little Lady Gaga. It doesn't get better than that.
I think Jerry & his Band were fantastic! I love Sinatra's music & Jerry has that feel.
Professionally- Jerry & his band sounded amazing! I don't know if you've heard Jerry sing before, but he has one of the smoothest voices around. It is rich, warm, and fills the room, but not piercing. His musicians in the band were top notch guys from Manhattan who were all professional players, not just once a month guys. You can really tell the difference!
Additionally- I found Jerry through a website search (lucky for me) Jen & I wanted to have a certain feel at the wedding which would require a live band, and we also wanted to dance the way WE dance. She had initially contacted several bands in the city and they and they all wanted more money than I had paid for my last automobile! Then I found Jerry. As far as I know, Jerry is the only PROFESSIONAL of his type on Long Island, and he sounds as great (if not better) than most of the groups from the city.I encourage you to listen to Jerry's music. Meet with him and draw your own conclusion if his style is right for you, but don't hesitate with regard to the quality and professionalism of Jerry and his band.
Jerry, I wanted to take a minute to personally Thank You for helping me arrange the entertainment, for my mothers birthday on such short notice. You guys were Fantastic! your Sax player was unbelievable all you guys were just great. Were having a corporate Christmas party in December, your band would be perfect, We’ll talk. Thanks Jerry. Bob Worth
Dear Jerry, My Husband and I just wanted to thank you. You added the perfect touch to the party. I have to tell you, when you first started singing I thought you were lip sinking and some of the guests thought the DJ had a CD playing. All in all the event was a great success and I am going to recommend you to all my friends. Thanks Again. Sincerely, Felix & Linda Fedrich
Dear Jerry, I can''t thank you enough, you guys were Great! The music was perfect, exactly what we were looking for and more. When you sang my parents wedding song and thay both started crying I lost it. You have a beautiful voice, I'm in love. My family and friends are still talking about you. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Nicole
Jerry and his band were great. I would definitely hire them again and may even wind up using them again next year for what may turn out to be an annual golf benefit. Thanks again Jerry.
Wonderful band. Guests loved their sounds. Would recommend to anyone. Jerry was as professional as they come. Thanks for the hook-up.
One of the best singers of the standards I’ve ever heard, I would highly advise anyone to use him! He’s a class act .
Jerry and his band were exactly what we had dreamed about for our wedding. His voice is excellent and he has a variety of options for ensemble sizes. We had a wonderful American Songbook evening with some mixed dance thrown in for fun. I would highly recommend Jerry because he really listens to what you want and like, and does a great job. We had many compliments on his band from our wedding guests.
Our Country Club's 1st Annual Special Membership Recognition and Appreciation Dinner Dance was a huge success largely in part by Jerry Costanzo's Band. With such a diverse membership, ranging in ages 20 - 96, we needed a band that would be able to "feel the essence" of the evening and be spontaneous and accommodating. The Jerry Constanzo band did just that. They were highly professional and entertaining. Our members were extremely happy. We would definitely welcome them back!
What can I say about Jerry and his band? True perfection! I can actually give them all the credit for the success of my Mom & Dad's Surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party! The smiles on their faces said it all and it was all because of you and the band. They didn't sit down all night! I've never seen them so excited in all my life! Jerry it was my pleasure working with you and your band. You all knew exactly what I was looking for. You were all so accommodating and you nailed every detail. You guys were great! Before my parents actually saw you and the band they thought they were hearing a record that's how good you sounded! I loved your passion and your enthusiasm. I can tell you all really love what you do! You couldn't have done anything better, it was absolute perfection! This day will always be remembered by me and my parents as the very best day of our lives and I truly mean it. The anniversary party may be over but you have won the hearts of me and my family forever. I can neve
From beginning to end, I found Jerry very approachable and accommodating. He was quite flexible with the plans for our event, which seemed to change like the wind. With respect to the event itself, everything worked effortlessly... they arrived promptly, set-up with minimal fluff and then performed better than expected. The mix of instrumentals and vocals was quite right, and the blending of holiday tunes was perfect. Though I am not an expert in things musical, I was impressed with the quality of the sound - seemed like something you'd find in a high-quality niteclub in New York. The band agreed to play longer than for what we'd agreed and did so quite happily. All in all, these guys are great, and I recommend them highly.

WOW!! I gave a 60th Anniversary party to my parents, and many guests were in their 80's. I also invited their children, and grandchildren, and there were times when almost every person in the room was up dancing!! To see people in their 80's and 40's and 20's dancing side by side and laughing and smiling was fantastic! The owner of the banquet hall heard the band and came down to our room to ask me who was this band, and how could he contact them! Every guest asked me where we found this 17-piece Big Band. Jerry Costanzo transcends generations. Grandchildren were asking their grandparents to dance! I saw guests with tears in their eyes many times during the evening. This Big Band was professional, talented, and Jerry makes eye-contact while he's singing and is very charming. I have sailed on the QE2 and on the new QM2 cruise lines, as have many of the guests, and Jerry Costanzo's Big Band tops every band we have ever heard! They have my highest recommendation.
