Ralph Marco

 

Originally from Chicago, IL, Ralph now resides in Southwest Florida where he is available to open tours and perform throughout Southwest Florida. 

     Ralph is the featured act of American Stardust and the creator of CHICAGO HEAT.  He is a multi-talented and featured vocalist of The Tony Bennett Tribute Show with The Diamondair Trio as well as directing and performing with CHICAGO HEAT.

I love driving people to the dance floor to celebrate life!     

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Sal Palmieri grew up during the great Oldies and Doo Wop era.  He emulated his favorite singers such as Pittsburgh natives Jimmy Beaumont of the Skyliners and Lou Christie, also The Flamingos and Dells, just to name a few. 


It was not uncommon to see Sal and a few of his friends singing a little acapella on the street corner across from the Pool Hall!  He gained notoriety in Pittsburgh and in Southwest Florida as a falsetto singer.  Sal's performed successfully with the Oldies band 'The Front Page' in Pittsburgh and has been performing his own Doo Wop shows here in SWFL


​He has also sat in as guest singer with Doo Wop band Uptown Express at the 2012 Christmas tree lighting in Naples on 5th Avenue and 3rd street.


With Chicago Heat, Sal will take you


Strollin' to the Oldies, sock hops, malt shops, poodle skirts and '55 Chevys!

I love music! But my favorite to perform?

Retro Jazz!
