Biography

The Man Behind The Mic
In another time and place, Jerry Costanzo wouldn’t be interpreting the Great American Songbook. It’s likely he’d be conceiving it. Midwest Record deemed the luminous vocalist and entertainer “a cat that knows how to swing it and grab the Vegas vibe that most of us never were old enough to experience,” while Jazz.com raved, “As all great singers do, he tells a story.”
Raised in a musical family, Costanzo’s musical stencil was etched with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Mel Torme, Jerry Vale and Nat King Cole. He was playing saxopho ...

Dear Jerry, My Husband and I just wanted to thank you. You added the perfect touch to the party. I have to tell you, when you first started singing I thought you were lip sinking and some of the guests thought the DJ had a CD playing. All in all the event was a great success and I am going to recommend you to all my friends. Thanks Again. Sincerely, Felix & Linda Fedrich

“It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Jerry Costanzo is on par with living legends like Tony Bennett and the like. His love for the clas- sic jazz repertoire is unquestionable and his mu- sical skill set is more than ample. In the realm of traditional song interpreters it doesn’t get much better!”

“I finally got to see Jerry Costanzo in the last of his seven appearances at Feinstein’s at the Loew’s Regency last night. Mr. Costanzo is a singer in the masculine tradition of Dean Martin, Perry Como and Nat Cole but one who sings their songs in his own swinging style and baritone. The show last night featured a collection of some of the finest songs in the Great American Songbook. Mr. Costanzo’s seven-piece orchestra backed him beautifully on swinging numbers such as East of the Sun and West of the Moon, You’re Driving Me Crazy and Mean to Me. Mr. Costanzo was equally adept at performing ballads, as he displayed with his vocals on Stairway to the Stars, Penthouse Serenade and his closing number We’ll Be Together Again. The seven-piece orchestra provided the perfect back up for Mr. Costanzo’s vocals and included Michael Carubia on trumpet, virtuoso work on vibes by Mark Sherman and pianist and musical director Tedd Firth.“It was an excellent musical evening. My only r ...
