Named Las Vegas Headliner of the Year two times running, Frankie Moreno has been wowing audiences from coast to coast with his mix of Rat Pack glamour, original and classic hits and vintage funk-infused sounds. A piano prodigy and multi-instrumentalist, Moreno has performed with many greats, including award-winning classical violinist Joshua Bell. Now, Moreno takes his sound intimate with his special weekly residency at Cabaret Jazz, “Under the Influence,” where he explores the music that inspires him.
To many, Frankie Moreno has been a staple in their music catalogue for years. To others, he is virtually brand new. Frankie started as a child prodigy pianist and was first introduced to American audiences at the age of ten with his debut on CBS’s “Star Search”. Now, named Headliner of the Year in Las Vegas, making national television appearances, releasing a brand new album, and is preparing a nationwide PBS Special titled “Frankie Moreno In Concert”, Frankie is capturing the attention of millions and leaving a lasting impression.
Frankie, who is managed by Roc Nation, is currently collaborating on new music with producer, engineer, and guitar legend Pat Thrall (Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber). “Frankie is one of the most naturally gifted musicians I’ve worked with. We both share the same vision for his music, so it’s fun and exciting as we go through the process” says Pat. “This album will greatly expand his fan base because it truly represents who he is right now as an artist.”
Frankie’s last collaboration for Sony Records with world-renowned violinist, Joshua Bell, reached #1 on the Billboard Charts in two categories. Other artists included on this album were Sting, Josh Groban, Chris Botti, Kristin Chenoweth, and Regina Spektor. Together they filmed "Great Performances, Live at Lincoln Center" for PBS. Frankie and Joshua have since recorded another album together, which hit the Top Ten on Billboard Charts. This one featuring Placido Domingo, Gloria Estefan, Allison Krauss, Chick Corea, and many more.
Frankie played a nation-wide tour with Grammy nominated artist Billy Currington and country superstars Sugarland. Frankie also joined multi-platinum artists Air Supply for their world tour as musical director. He wrote their latest radio single “Dance With Me” which reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Charts.
In 2013 Frankie’s performance on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” brought him in to Americas living rooms again. He performed his hit “Tangerine Honey.” This led to many other TV shows, magazine write-ups and sold out concerts.
Frankie Moreno is commanding audiences everywhere with his highly contagious music and playful stage antics. His songs are brilliantly crafted and his musicianship is virtuoso. He is unquestionably a unique artist and an all around talent who puts his heart and soul into his music.

"You can see the appeal. The piano-pounding singer is not a total "retro" throwback musically -- he's as much funny Chris Isaak as matinee-idol Michael Buble, with Billy Joel knocking around there somewhere, too -- but he's old-Vegas in attitude. It's a party. You're invited.” (Las Vegas Review Journal)
"By the time a cocktail waitress delivers shots of Crown Royal to the stage, and Frankie passes a bottle around the audience and the brass section walks around the showroom like it's a New Orleans parade, it starts to feel like one big, musical family reunion.
