About

Frankie Sands has been involved in music and singing since he was in grade school. He likes to joke, " I got my first break in 5th grade. My teacher, Mr. Derogatis was a big music buff and used to have the class do quite a bit of singing. One day I was making noise and he sent me up to the front of the class to sing Arriverdecci Roma, acapella, thinking he would embarrass me and teach me a lesson for disrupting the class. When I nailed the song I instantly became his favorite instead! After that he took me all over and had me singing everywhere for everyone!"

Frank's musical tastes were greatly influenced by his parents who were big music buffs. Frank Sr was always playing his favorite music from his youth ( the 40's & 50's ) which naturally included the songs of the great Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and later, Bobby Darin. Strangely enough, when Frank was younger he didn't care to sing Sinatra songs because they weren't in his key. As his voice matured into the soothing baritone that it is today, Sinatra became his preferred artist.

Frank is not an impersonator as much as he is a "Tribute Artist" in that he doesn't seek to LOOK like that artist's he pays tribute to instead preferring to SOUND like them. This fact adds a great dimension to Frank's performances since he has the uncanny ability to sound like all three of the great singers he pays tribute to, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin. Freed from having to make himself up to look like any one of them, Frank becomes the quintessential " Vocal Impersonator " often doing all three stars in the same night! Close your eyes and you will believe that each one is on the stage when Frank Sings.

Beyond singing, Frank is an accomplished Drummer and lead several jazz bands. He is a well rounded multi talented performer who lends a touch of class and elegance to any event he appears at. His performances are not to be missed and are remembered and talked about by those who see them long after the curtain comes down. If you are planning an event that you want to be both special and memorable for you and your guests, contact Frankie Sands and be sure to tell him that "Gig Salad sent you".

Influences

I have always been influenced by the works of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin & Sammy Davis Jr. Their vocal techniques and Stage presence really made them giants in the industry and I don't think today's singers can compare to them.
