He doesn’t bill himself as an impersonator, per se, but Frank Di Salvo is about as close to the real deal as you can get without a Ouija board. Blessed with an uncanny likeness to “Ol’ Blue Eyes” in sound and style, Di Salvo presents a Las Vegas-esque review of timeless classics by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and many others.
Di Salvo has performed all over the country, inspiring midcentury memories and moments through song, phrasing, and stories of the musical era that immortalized Sinatra and his Rat Pack buddies. He also sings hits from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s and plays blues, classic, and jazz guitar.
You can catch this dinner show through May at Indian Wells Resort Hotel (76661 Hwy. 111, Indian Wells): Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Frank’s Place. Reservations are encouraged. Call 760-345-6466 or visit www.indianwellsresort.com for dinner Frank Di Salvo reservations and more information.
