My specialty is Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. I do nearly 100 of Frank's most popular songs, from memory and in his style, as well as Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. I almost never use sheet music, rather, I believe that it is more important to connect with the audience.
I also perform the hits from about 25 other artists, mostly in their style. On the pop side, I also specialize in Neil Diamond, and I perform about a dozen of his top hits, again in his style.
I can also bring the Rat Pack experience with Dean, both Dean and Sammy, or even add Marilyn Monroe. We can either do a fully scripted show or merely sing their greatest hits.
The 7/Hills women's club thought he was excellent. They are looking forward to having him return soon. He put on a great performance.
Engaging, wonderful personality, was able to sing to the crowd and continued to engage the whole party through the whole performance. Personable and great voice!
Was professional, kind, entertaining and everything you could ever ask for. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Thank You Very much!

Steve was very flexible and audience aware. For an in home event with 45-50, the entertainment was spot on and elevated the party.

What to Expect
I will show up, on time and in the attire requested, ready to perform. I will bring all the equipment necessary, whether to perform at a business or on the front porch, or any other venue including outdoor events. I have systems ranging from a self-contained 250 watt mixer used for singing telegrams and small events to my pair of 12 inch 1,000 watt QSC speakers. I will provide the vocals to pre-recorded music designed for such occasions, usually similar to the band renditions as performed by the actual artists. I can perform for as little as 15 minutes or as long as 4-5 hours, depending upon the event. I can also provide Master of Ceremonies services when called upon.
I have been performing for nearly 20 years. I began covering Frank Sinatra, and that has remained my first love. I now do nearly 100 of his top favorites. Over the years I added Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. My new favorite is Neil Diamond, and I now perform virtually all of his greatest hits, in his style.
I began performing for retirement communities, but I now do private parties, singing telegrams, fund raisers, shopping malls and corporate events. I've performed all over Southern California, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire, and as far north as the Bay Area. I've been asked to perform in Arizona and Las Vegas.
I recently hooked up with a long-time friend who has made a career out of doing Dean Martin, and after adding a Sammy, we now do a vintage Rat Pack show centered around the proverbial bar. It's full of humor and the Rat Pack antics they were famous for. It is a scripted show that includes all the favorite songs and duets audiences have come to expect. Depending upon availability, we can even bring in a wonderful Marilyn Monroe for your event.
Lastly, I also do a true Frank Sinatra tribute show which includes telling his life's highlights through about 20 of his greatest songs woven through the story. The length of the show can be tailored to meet your needs.
Additional Booking Notes
What Is A Singing Telegram?
Singing Telegrams are used to send a message to someone through song. I have performed them for corporate parties to surprise a boss or an employee on their birthday or for other special occasions. I have been booked to perform them in offices and stores, as well as restaurants, coffee houses and retail stores, as well as on someone’s front porch. The locations vary, but the message is the same in every case. Someone is thinking about someone else…a co-worker, a boss, a client, a relative, a friend, a neighbor or a loved one.
Why Send A Singing Telegram?
By sending me to provide entertainment in the form of a song (or two) that likely will appeal to the recipient, it makes the message so much more special and appreciated. It will provide lasting memories long after the greeting card has been packed away.
What Do You Do?
I have nearly 200 songs in my repertoire, although my specialty is Frank Sinatra. My attire depends upon the wishes of the sender. In most cases I perform in a tuxedo or white dinner jacket. I perform the music of numerous artists, such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Andy Williams, Frankie Valli, Neil Diamond, Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Tom Jones and many others. Although I am not an impersonator, I have achieved great success as an impressionist. It is my objective to leave the “impression” that the artists themselves were there performing. In the case of Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Elvis Presley and Willie Nelson, I often utilize suitable attire to help create a more visual image, as you can see from my photos.
What Makes It Special?
For me, a singing telegram is something that is carefully crafted and delivered to provide just the right message through just the right song. All songs on my Song List have been committed to memory so that I can direct my full attention to the recipient. Singing telegrams can turn your message into a very special memory. If you have someone to whom you want to say something they will long remember, and make it really special with a Singing Telegram.
What Does It Cost?
Each singing telegram is priced individually depending upon the day and time, as well as the location and how long my travel will likely take. Generally the price will range from as little as $100 (plus Gig Salad booking fee of $15) up to $250.
How Long Do You Perform For? How Many Songs?
Although most singing telegrams generally involve one or two songs, I can arrange to provide entertainment for up to 30 minutes or more, depending upon the circumstances. This can work well with a party or other occasions.
How Much Equipment and Set-Up Is Involved?
The method of delivery will largely depend upon the location and circumstances. If someone is working, generally no more than one, possibly two songs, should be the rule. Also, I use a small, hand-held amplifier, IPod and microphone that can operate on batteries. This allows me to provide a quality performance without prior set-up at their work on on the front porch. If this entertainment is planned for a party, I can use a larger system that can be set-up in less than 5 minutes and will accomodate most size parties.
Any Other Considerations?
Planning is important so that this special gift is well received. It is important to be certain that the recipient is completely comfortable and at ease. Also make sure that they will be at the location at the chosen time. Sometimes it helps to have another person aware of what is happening and willing to help with the event.
How About Flowers?
I can arrange to bring flower(s) with the singing telegram. In many cases, a single red, long-stemmed rose works well. In others, a bouquet of flowers will be very well received. In the case of the roses, sometimes a beautiful silk rose in your choice of color works well since it can become a keepsake.
Time permitting, if you send me a card that you have signed, I will be happy to deliver it in person. Otherwise, I can print something personal that you e-mail to me.
