Burien’s Own Frank Sinatra Seeking Piano Lessons
Saw this posting on Craigslist this morning and just had to share it:
I’m writing this letter in hopes to find someone who is familiar with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr, Louis Prima, etc.
I am an 18 year old kid who’s got the heart and soul of Frank Sinatra. I literally live and breathe his music. I show it through my personality, character, and performances.
I sing his music just like him, with an entertaining performance of Dean Martin. I mix them. It’s something I’m well known for with a lot of local artists whom I know through my agent.
I am looking for someone who is willing to share their talent by teaching me how to play piano. I have always wanted to accompany myself on stage to some of the popular crooning tunes but have not been able to because I don’t know how to play!!
I am young, broke, but willing to work something out.
Let me know if your interested.
I have a 4 track demo cd i can send you or give you over a cup of coffee at starbucks, and I also have a video on myspace of a performance from last August. “Luck be a lady”:
Here’s his impressive “Luck Be A Lady” performance from the Teen Idols Performance last year:
From his MySpace page:
Hello Everyone!! I am Daniel Quintero. I am a guy who is going through a tremendous change for the good. Some stats about me though: I have black hair, Green eyes, I am tan 8 months out of the year(LOL), I’m 6’1, and I am a very generous person who get’s a kick out of going on adventures. lol. I’ve been told that my personality is the best thing about me. I am very forgiving, however if I apologize to you for something I did wrong and you feel the need to brush me off, your on the hit list. jk. I live in Burien all alone in a fairly spacious 1 bedroom. I had the most beautiful furniture an 18 year old could have, but I got rid of it and am saving up for DARK BROWN LEATHER and a huge flat screen so that when football season comes around next year..I’m completely set. lol.If Im not singing, then im either working, or with my family. I used to work for my brothers company as an Operations Manager (Some may call it a delivery driver, LMAO), but I recently quit. To be completely honest with you, I put in a lot of hours at work. It’s difficult to see me. But for now I went back to a job I was doing on weekends. I can’t tell you what it is cause I would have to kill you. ha. On the weekends I perform in a group called Teen Idols as Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin. Something I enjoy doing week nights when I’m done with my work is to come home, cook my dinner with a glass of Merlot while listening to Ol’Blue Eyes and just relax. The video below is of my August 2007 performace in Teen Idols, I sang “luck Be a lady” and danced with Libby. If there’s something you want to know about me then I suggest you just ask. I’m an easy person to approach. But for now…’Fuhgettaboutit’
Now, we don’t normally get excited when some 18-year old starts comparing himself to Frank or Dino, but after watching this kid’s vid (which at first we thought was simply lip synched but it’s not!), we were impressed enough to give ’em some B-Town Blog space.
So…are there any piano players or teachers out there willing to help this guy out?
If so, let us know â€“ we’d love to document the process (can you say “B-Town Idol”?).
It’s obvious that he can sing – let’s see what else he can do!
