Frank Lamphere (Rat Pack Jazz) – Ottawa 2 Rivers Wine Festival

CHICAGO, Dec 26, 2016 During his brief amateur boxing career, that included a memorable fight against the eventual champion of the lightweight division in the Chicago Golden Gloves, many thought that Frank Lamphere (LAM-fear) hit like a heavyweight.

Today, with the “Sweet Science” an old but pleasant memory, Lamphere is a professional singer in the highly specialized genre known as traditional pop (Sinatra, Bennett, Connick Jr.). Vast portions of his performances and repertoire are presented in big band and straight ahead jazz and Lamphere has proudly considered a vocal “heavyweight”.
