Update Frank Lamphere + Follow

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: August 4

Chicago based retro crooner and now songwriter Frank Lamphere, whose live performances have always been heavy on Rat Pack, Tony Bennett, Jack Jones and the like, on February 01, 2012 released an EP of jazzy self-written and produced songs titled “Frank Swings”.

Lamphere, despite several studio recordings and high profile gigs at Jilly's and the Peninsula Hotel has been for years, “Soaring under the radar”. He loves nightclub work but describes most nightclubs as “not knowing if they are music venues or sports bars”. Consequently, with keen marketing and business management skills (Frank has run a west suburban deck construction company A-Affordable Decks for about twenty years) he took his niche act to corporate America, and has experienced great success. Frank and his diverse bands perform shows for local merchants to Fortune 500 companies. Country clubs, theaters and such venues as the famous Empire Room, the 95th Floor, and the Marriott Marquis in Times Square have all played host to Rat Pack Jazz (Lamphere's music brand) There are also weddings and the occasional and welcomed festival that offer a nice change of pace....

”His voice, now more than ever before, is a wonderful blend of masculine strength and smooth, rounded edges”

“The fledgling composer succeeds with five originals with catchy lyrics, good production value, and top notch playing by some of Chicago’s finest musicians”

“Unlike singers like Michael Buble who initially succeed in one genre but cross over into more popular styles, Frank demonstrates respect for the style he loves. Without being a generic impersonator, Lamphere derives inspiration from the usual suspects, Sinatra and Dean Martin. But I didn’t find myself comparing him to either”
