 Ferrari uses his charisma and humor as well as impersonations throughout his 90-minute performance.

 His repertoire goes from Frank Sinatra to Jon Bon Jovi. He speaks fluently in English, Italian, French and Spanish. He is not a lounge act but a headliner with a full band.

 He said, “In the middle of the show I do Elvis, Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck. I first played Las Vegas in 1973. I played the Sands, the Las Vegas Hilton, the Desert Inn and the Aladdin. They were nice places to perform.”

 The Italian American Club is 2333 E. Sahara Ave. and you can also buy tickets at the door.  This is his third appearance at the Italian American Club. It’s an intimate experience with 279 seats. I will do a meet-and-greet after the show.  He is based in Fort Myers, Florida.

 The Italian-born singer is from Catania, Italy. He grew up in Egypt and performed for years in NATO bases’ military clubs. He’s opened for Don Rickles, Pat Cooper, Bob Newhart,  Dom DeLuise, Jackie Mason, Rich Little, Jay Leno and David Brenner. He said, “ I was with Rickles for over seven years and he was very good to me.”
