About
Bob Reneke, Mr. Sinatra's long-time friend and personal assistant, said of Gabriel ...
"THIS GUY HAS ALL OF FRANK'S STYLE AND SNAP, NOBODY ELSE HAS IT!"

On June 12, 2014, Gabriel Russo won the "Frank Sinatra Idol Competition" held in Frank's hometown of Hoboken, New Jersey. He competed against 15 other performers from around the States and Canada.
Born in the Philadelphia area a long time ago, Gabe now lives the artists life in the perfectly manageable mountains north of Atlanta.
Russo began singing with his father tuxedo and all, in 1960, when he was eight years old. They continued to perform together, in nightclubs over the northeast; "Cafe Continental", "Latin Casino", "Crescendo", "The Host Club" and more into the '80's.
An actor since 1973, he's been fortunate enough to portray many characters on stage from Nathan Detroit in "Guys and Dolls"(twice), 'King Arthur' in "Camelot", The older Sinatra character in "MY Way"(twice) to Oscar Madison in "The Odd Couple"(twice), Matt Friedman in Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning, "Talley's Folly"(twice) and a slew of others ... even "Death" once. Actor and Singer, he studied Frank as a character, studied his moves, his walk ... and at times ... when the light is right ... the physical likeness is uncanny.
That he is committed to keeping this music and performance style alive and viable is very evident in his performance.
Russo plays Six string, Twelve string and Bass guitar. He has performed in bands and in front of Big Bands, been a solo folk singing act and, briefly, had a small TV show.
Gabriel's background of youthful crooning, years of acting and solo performing, demonstrate why it's no mistake that Gabe is uniquely able to capture the ease and comfort, on stage, that typify the finest performers of those golden years.

Whether he's performing his one-man show, "Summer Wind, An Intimate Evening with Frank Sinatra," or entertaining at a small gathering, his portrayal of Mr. Sinatra is "deft and spot-on".
We bring shows to you in several affordable formats: Lights and Back-Drops available.
"The Small Show", solo w/professional pre-recorded musical tracks .... "Not So Small", performance w/Piano Player. and recorded professional tracks.
"The Trio + Gabe" performance w/Piano, Bass and Drums ..... "Quintet + Gabe" performance w/Piano, Bass, Drums, Trombone and Saxophone or Trumpet.

Gabe was all about letting me be the boss. He was very easy to talk with and super accommodating. He has a great voice and the crowd really loved him. His crooning set the tone for the whole evening. He had a technical glitch come up when he arrived but was so calm, cool, and collected I never worried a minute. He got everything worked out by show time and didn't break sweat! A true show business professional.

Gabe was fantastic at the birthday party that I hosted for my husband, who is a big Sinatra fan. He can really play the part, and his voice is wonderful! You almost think that Frank has come to your party. I would give him more stars if I could. He was so accommodating and made sure to sing all of my husband's favorites. I can highly recommend Gabe for any event.

Gabe was a huge hit for our residents’ Valentine party. They were all completely swept away by his top-notch performance! He was very personable, and even hung around for a few minutes afterwards to chat and take pictures with the residents. Gabe adjusted pricing to meet our budget, but it did not impact his performance at all. He was lots of fun to work with, and we would book him again!
