Borough Wide

Borough son Charlie Romo is a born-and-bred talent with a set of pipes to rival Ol’ Blue Eyes himself. Our Standing O pal headlined at Lorenzo’s Cabaret on Staten Island on Oct. 19.

This classically trained lyric baritone is a graduate of Wagner College, and excels in his interpretation of jazz and the Great American Songbook — is there any other?

Charlie takes his inspiration from the greats — Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Vic Damone, Tony Bennett, and Sammy Davis Jr. — just to name a few.

Charlie, along with top-notch musicians, has appeared in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Orlando, Fla. And last December, our boy made his New York City debut at Lincoln Center, where he co-headlined the annual Christmas Spectacular at David Geffen Hall.

You know when you make it here — accolades include being the youngest member ever to be inducted into the legendary Friars Club in New York City; winner of Broadway World’s 2016 Best Debut Artist Award; and nominee of NYC Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs’ 2017 Best Male Debut Artist Award.

There are plans for a gig in our burg next month, so stay tuned to this page to find out the who, what, when, and where.
