Angelo was incredible! He was our main act for our Legends of Vegas Casino Night; our guests loved him; very talented, interacted with our guests and showgirls, and even did a duet with our Elvis impersonator. We'll definitely be calling again next year!

Hi Tina, thank you so much for your great review and for having me perform at your event on Friday! It was a pleasure bing there and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I'd be honored to entertain there again. May you and all at The University Club have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

He was very professional and punctual from his correspondence about booking, to his arrival on the day of. He really was everything we hoped for and more. I highly recommend him for your entertainment needs at your next event. I know we will be hiring him again, as it was truly a pleasure to have worked with him. Thank you so much again!
We had high expectations. They were exceeded. Great voice, personality, flair, song list and overall performance.
Response from Let Me Be Frank:
Thank you for the great review, Anthony. Singing at your party was a pleasure and I wish you and your family an excellent 2018!
We loved having Angelo join us for our Client Appreciation Holiday Event. Our clients greatly enjoyed his performance and he took our event to the next level! Angelo effortless wove into the event and our event scheduling and even adjusted his playlist to include Happy Birthday for one of our guests. We would highly recommend Let Me Be Frank and would book him again in the future! Thank you, Angelo!
I hired Angelo to sing and be the MC for my mother's 90th birthday celebration. His performance was great, singing lovely, and was very responsive to the group. He was also a pleasure to work with. He was very responsible and communicative and worked with my requests. I couldn't think of a better person to hire! I highly recommend him.
We celebrated a triple Anniversary event at our senior community in Santa Barbara, CA. Let Me Be Frank and his band provided a very entertaining evening of music and song, and our residents thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Would welcome Let Me Be Frank back anytime. Thank you!
Response from Let Me Be Frank:
Thank you for booking me and the band, and for the wonderful review, Jodi! The whole experience of performing at The Samarkand was a pleasure. You and the residents were so kind and welcoming and I am honored that you sou;d welcome us back!
Let Me Be Frank was wonderful! His voice exceeded our expectations, he came dressed perfectly for the event, sang songs appropriate for the ballroom Dane crowd, was on time, and very professional. I will definitely be hiring him again.
Response from Let Me Be Frank:
Thank you for hiring me and for the great review, Deborah!!
This guy is FIVE STARS!! Our event was for a 90th birthday and the theme was "Old Hollywood Glamour" & in attendance were TV & movie directors/producers, writers, professional entertainers, family & friends of all ages. EVERYONE was thoroughly entertained and pleased as we listened, danced and sang along!!! A real class act! I highly recommend him, you won't be disappointed :)
We hosted an 80th bday party for my Mother in Law, and so glad that we chose "Let Me Be Frank"! Well, first, my MIL was just thrilled and tickled pink to coming pretty darn close to having a private concert with Frank Sinatra. Angelo was wonderful with the crowd and made the birthday celebrant feel sooooo special. It topped off the evening nicely
My MIL is still bragging about the party and being serenaded by "Frank Sinatra". Thank you so much!
We were very happy with "Let Me Be Frank", He was professional; pleasant; and passionate about his work.
Most of all, all my guests were entertained and I have never seen my mother-in-law danced like that!
I genuinely recommend "Let Me be Frank".
Angelo was professional from start to finish! He arrived on time and well-prepared. His voice was outstanding and my husband's mother swooned through the entire set list of pitch perfect Sinatra songs. I cannot recommend Angelo enough for your party or event. From his initial quote, to his emailed questions/responses, to his final performance, he was professional, personable and delightful every step of the way! Bravo Angelo/"Frank"!!
He was fantastic. I wanted to hire someone to sing a few Sinatra songs while I danced with my girlfriend before I proposed. He was more than capable of handling the job. Not only did he show up early to help set the scene, but he went above and beyond his duties. I have no doubt in saying that he can satisfy any event's needs.
Response from Let Me Be Frank:
Singing at this event was an honor and I was so grateful to serenade two people who are so much in
love. It was a moving experience and I'm happy that my service was so greatly appreciated.
"Let Me Be Frank" written and performed by Mr. Divino, told a heartwarming and true story of the legendary Frank Sinatra. From beginning to end I couldn't stop tapping my feet under the dinner table and felt the same buzz from everyone else in the room. The show was perfectly entertaining as well as informative, complete with family photos documenting Frank's life. Mr. Divino takes command of the stage and took me on a ride that I didn't want to end. A truely awesome evening and a must see for all Frank Sinatra fans.
I have seen this show and LOVED IT! Angelo does an excellent job singing, story telling, and cracking jokes. Find his next show and go; you won't be sorry!

What to Expect
Angelo works with you to make your event the best it can possibly be! You can either send him a list of your favorite tunes, or let Angelo craft a hit-packed set list to have you and your guests calling out for more! He shows up in plenty of time to set up his sound system, dressed for the event, (weather permitting) and works with the event host, on your schedule. His rave reviews show that Angelo aims for greatness and delivers just that, consistently!
If you and your group would like a more theatrical experience, here are some details about Angelo's one-man Sinatra stage shows. The "Let Me Be Frank" show runs 75 minutes straight through, chronicling Frank Sinatra's dynamic life, from his precarious Hoboken birth to the heights of early stardom. The show frankly conveys his scandal-ridden early love life and points up what caused his premature fall from grace and popularity. The show resolves with the return of Frank's massive success and happiness with his fourth wife, Barbara. More than 20 songs coinciding with the Sinatra story are sung throughout the show, demonstrating the broad arc of his music catalog. You'll be amazed at how well the songs in the show move his life story forward! "Let Me Be Frank" can either run straight through, or with one intermission. More musical sets can be performed for longer events, at a 3 hour maximum.
"Let Me Be Frank" or his more recent show, "Sinatra 101" can be performed with piano accompaniment or a trio, depending on client budget. Larger bands can be arranged, including a horn section, upon request. Brief appearances are available as an option and recorded accompaniment can be used for events with limited space and more modest budgets. A portion of either show can also be performed with recorded accompaniment. Most clients have booked Angelo solo, with recorded music and the reviews show a high rate of client satisfaction.
Angelo has a wide repertoire, including selections by Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett and others. He can also perform at wedding ceremonies, memorials and for groups that like to dance, Angelo can add Latin numbers for ballroom dancing!
Angelo Divino earned a rave review in NYC-based Cabaret Scenes Magazine for his original live show, “Let Me Be Frank,” which celebrates the life, career and music of Frank Sinatra! In New York, Angelo sang with The Rainbow Room Orchestra at Rockefeller Center, and lead vocals with The Duke Ellington Legacy Band at Birdland.
In Los Angeles, Angelo performed his shows at the nation’s longest running Cabaret, “The Gardenia” and has sung at numerous Southern California venues, including Hotel Casa Del Mar, “Twist” at The Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, “Catalina Bar and Grill'" with Barbara Morrison and at “The Arthur Newman Theatre” in Palm Desert.
Angelo's new jazz album- "Love A to Z" was just released! This collection of original songs can also be performed, along with his repertoire of Great American classics.
Here's what Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Top 500 Reviewer, recently wrote about alive "Love A to Z" performance and about the album:
"California vocalist Angelo Divino performs with a twinkle in his eye, a laid-back polish in his delivery, and an easy-going charm—with both the audience and his musicians—that make for a very entertaining performance. Angelo sings from the core of the lyrics as well as from his heart. He is not a trickster – he just delivers completely."
Angelo is also an experienced professional artist, who began his art career in New York's fashion industry. He was hired by Absolut Vodka, Sony Electronics and Coty Fragrances, to create stylish portraits at live promotional events. Have him work his live painting magic at your next party and your guests will not be able to stop talking about it. They may even take a piece home with them!

Influences & Inspiration
Louis and Keely (now at The Sahara in Las Vegas) inspired me to create my first show, "Lucky So and So." Also, I had performed in a Duke Ellington review and was inspired to create a show that told about his fascinating life. After creating this show, I began reading about Frank Sinatra's life and researching his performance footage. The facts I learned while researching both Music Giants was more fertile than I could ever have imagined and the material moved my creative hand organically. I am also inspired by these performers: Barbara Morrison, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughn and Johnny Hartman, among others.
A Piano (prefered, though my pianist can bring keyboard, if necessary).
Electrical outlets within a reasonable distance from the performance area.
A small sound system for a small to medium size rooms will be provided. A more powerful one for larger rooms and outdoor areas is also available.
A stage, or indoor space, or covered, heated outdoor area (in cold or inclement weather), adequate lighting and a stool for props.
