Often described as the "American Michael Buble" or the "next Frank Sinatra," Chicago's pop standards sensation Peter Oprisko enjoyed a successful career in national radio broadcasting before embarking on a musical path that has led him to become one of the country's most in-demand entertainers.

In addition to performing 300+ engagements annually for theatres, colleges, corporations, casinos, fundraisers, and other venues and occasions nationwide, Peter is celebrating his 6th year as an official entertainer for the public and private events of the Chicago White Sox, and NASCAR.

Legendary Grammy-winning jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis has called Oprisko the "Rolls Royce" of jazz singers today, and in addition to headlining the 2008 Rosemary Clooney festival in Maysville, Kentucky, Peter's opening for the Beach Boys at MGM's Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi on New Year's Eve 2007 drew high acclaim.

Peter is a voting member of NARAS(the Grammy Awards) and ASCAP and is president of Retropolis Records for which he prolifically writes and records.
