BWW Interview: The 'New' Mr. Las Vegas, Frankie Moreno Talks 'New Las Vegas' & Songwriting Career
If you go to Las Vegas, there is one act you definitely need to catch and his name is Frankie Moreno.
As a child prodigy on the piano and a gifted multi-instrumentalist, Frankie was first introduced to American audiences at the age of ten with his debut on CBS's "Star Search". Since then, named "Las Vegas Headliner of the Year" three times, Frankie has been wowing audiences from coast to coast performing his own brand of piano-pounding Rock n' Roll.
Frankie's performance on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" brought him into America's living rooms again performing his self-penned hit "Tangerine Honey". He has continued with more television appearances, magazine covers and sold-out concerts including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and The Hollywood Bowl. The recipient of an Emmy Nomination for his national TV special "Songs at Home", Frankie is now starring in his own nationwide special for PBS titled "Frankie Moreno In Concert".
Frankie toured the U.S. with Grammy nominated country artist Billy Currington and country superstars Sugarland. Frankie has also joined multi-platinum artists Air Supply for their world tour as musical director, and wrote their radio single "Dance with Me", reaching #7 on the Top 40 Billboard charts.
With the looks and moves of Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, Moreno showcases his brilliant original songs, guitar playing, piano playing and harmonica playing. You can call him a renaissance man. Even though his residency at Golden Nugget may be over, you never know where Frankie may end up next!
