Russo and Noe / Press

“Gabe Russo says, It's Italian law: you have to love Sinatra, and if you sing, you must sing Sinatra. It was a lesson --- albeit a happy one---that was begun very early; Russo began performing on stage with his Father at the age of eight, I had a little tux and everything, he says. Russo now wears the tuxedo he inherited from his Father --- the same tux his father wore while singing Sinatra’s music in Philadelphia. It is a mark of how important the era is to Russo. Nowadays, Russo has teamed up with friend Jim Noe, and the duo performs not just Sinatra, but the music of the Rat Pack: Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. But they are not aiming to impersonate; they aim to recreate an era. It’s a romantic era, complete with mafia goons and dark casinos, romantic; music to swing to … to slow dance. And while the mafia is better left to the past, the music that Russo & Noe sing conjures up exactly that atmosphere, minus the danger: It’s a nostalgic look back”
