Jack D'Amico as Frank Sinatra

Jack D 'Amico, as Frank Sinatra, is probably the most impressive character in the show, wiggling his hips in a subdued but very Sinatra-ish way. It is his voice, however, which makes everybody sit up and pay attention: it is exactly the great master's voice and intonation. Incredible! That's what the Aruba News said after his recent appearance at the Alhambra Casino, with The Chicago Rat Pack. Although he has performed tributes to Frank Sinatra for the past seventeen years, Jack's talents are not limited to these tributes. Having shared the stage with numerous headliners, and entertaining audiences for years in a variety of arenas he has been favorably compared to the most popular of the saloon singers. Dave Hoekstra of the Chicago Sun-Times has written: "Chicago's favorite Sinatra stylist, Jack D 'Amico, is a brilliant saloon singer in his own right."

His favorite kind of music; music that comes from the heart. If you want the world on a string, or someone to tug on your heartstrings, look no further. Jack D'Amico has arrived!
