WHEN WITH ROMO, DO AS ROMO DOES ~ SING!
Charlie Romo is a native New Yorker and grew up in a community and family with strong character which has reinforced in him a style that has served him on stage. He studied music at Wagner College and has performed on the same stage and in shows with Usher, Chita Rivera, and Ben Vereen at venues like Lincoln Center, the iconic Friars Club, State Theatre, Green Room 42, Feinstein's at Vitello's, and the internationally acclaimed Birdland Jazz Club in New York City.
Charlie is in his 20s and yet totally confident, comfortable and at home on both small and very large stages. His captivating body language, radiant smile, personal warmth and pitch-perfect technical mastery reveals his fresh, new, exciting talent that profoundly engages, energizes and mesmerizes his audience at every show. Charlie has an avid passion for, and a unique interpretation of recognizable renditions of popular standards of jazz and the Great American Songbook. He revives this music and style of a previous era in a dynamic and refreshing way. With intense excitement and enthusiasm, Charlie has a way of turning back the clock, without imitation, and like a kindred spirit, he embodies and channels the soul and sound of cherished legends—the likes of Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Elvis Presley, and Dean Martin. Typically, his audiences respond in a wildly enthusiastic fashion as he brings back the romance, flair, subtlety, and the longing of the music that played through a smoky, satiny generation of courtship, club-going and dancing.
Charlie Romo is always joined by world-class musicians. Charlie's musicians have worked with dozens of top artists, including Frank Sinatra, Eartha Kitt, Judy Collins, Barbra Streisand, and Tony Bennett. Bobby Darin at the world-famous Copacabana in 1960 and Charlie Romo have both been accompanied by Ronnie Zito on drums.
Charlie was the recipient of Broadway World's 2016 Best Debut Artist Award. Charlie was also named 2017 NYC Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs Best Male Debut Artist. Charlie is the youngest member ever to be inducted into the legendary Friars Club in New York City.
