Considered one of the Best and busiest Singer/Bandleaders on the scene today. Jerry has gained popularity among connoisseurs of jazz & swing, young and old. His interpretations of tunes from the "Great American Song Book" and legendary singers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole and others, plus, the sight, sound, and music of the great big bands, will set the stage and carry you back to an era when this sultry and swinging music was the "Pop" of the day .
In another time and place, Jerry Costanzo wouldn’t be interpreting the Great American Songbook. It’s likely he’d be conceiving it. "The Midwest Record" deemed the luminous vocalist and bandleader “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 Sinatra, Sammy, Dino, Perry Como, Nat King Cole. He was playing saxophone by third grade, and developed chops as a performer studying acting at New York’s Herbert Berghof Studio. A stint as personal aid and chauffeur for Al Pacino further apprised Costanzo to the arts, before he joined his father Joseph’s big band, "The Memories Of Swing," first on sax and then as the outfit’s lead vocalist. While well into his 30s before the New Yorker recognized his calling card—bringing his musical idols back to life—Costanzo is making up for lost time. Today, the man behind the mic is a full-time troubadour and bandleader, surrounded by a Who’s Who of the jazz world. In 2008, his debut full-length album “Destination Moon,” served up a dozen swigin` classics, “Moon” earned Costanzo a dedicated live following, with gigs including the Annual Sinatra Birthday Bash at The Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, N.J., Lincoln Centers Mid Summer Night Swing, New York’s Metropolitan Room, Feinstein’s at The Loews Regency, Swing 46 Jazz & Supper Club, The Iridium Jazz Club, Jazz at The Kitano Hotel, The Waldorf Astoria, The Long Island, N.Y., Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, Hofstra University’s John Cranford Theater, The Suffolk Theater, The Harry Chapin Lakeside Theater, The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center and dozens of concert series, festivals and private posh gigs nationally and worldwide.
