Often described as the “American Michael Buble,” or the “next Frank Sinatra,” Chicago-based pop/jazz singer Peter Oprisko enjoyed a successful career as a writer, actor, voice-over performer, and nationally-syndicated radio host(interviewing and featuring the music of Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Henry Mancini, Michael Feinstein, and their contemporaries) before embarking on a path that has led him to become one of the country’s most in-demand and acclaimed concert and recording artists.

Accompanied by various sized virtuoso music ensembles(ranging from solo piano to big band), Peter tours extensively and averages 300 performances annually at theatres, colleges, clubs, fundraisers, casinos and corporations nationwide. His exciting, engaging, and interactive presentation that preserves, promotes, and perpetuates the rich musical legacies of America’s foremost singers and songwriters appeals to audiences of all ages and has attracted many fans.
