The Brooklyn born now west coast base Jazz singer Vocalist has built a loyal following playing in nightclubs from New York to California, and as of late has returned back to his old stomping grounds and is taking back Vegas.

 DiNapoli is the Standout male Vocalist of an era gone by and continues to sing as a saloon singer staying true to his roots.  For an Evening of Standards Set in a place that can only resemble a scene from  vintage Vegas that no movie set could rival. A voice… A Place….. A song.

Someday, hopefully not for years to come, Tony Bennett will retire, having left his heart in San Francisco.

When he does, he might consider leaving his songs to Nick DiNapoli, a singer who sounds so much like Bennett it's uncanny.

DiNapoli even paints, a passionate pastime for Bennett that has become a profitable sideline for the legendary singer.

"I'm not trying to emulate his singing style," DiNapoli, a 39-year-old retired fireman from Barstow, Calif., said. "It comes naturally. I do all the standards -- (George) Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter -- and I listen to singers like Bing Crosby and Mel Torme.

"But my voice just sounds like Tony Bennett, the tonality. It's a blessing and a curse. I'm not trying to be Tony Bennett, I've even turned down some Tony Bennett things because that's what they expected."

DiNapoli is a man who likes to do things his own way.

"I know I sound like him, and he's a big influence, no doubt," DiNapoli said. "But if a person knows Tony Bennett, really knows his music, and then they hear me, they will hear the difference. But a lot of people don't hear it, they just have an off-the-top-of-the-head awareness. The real Bennett fans would say there is a resemblance, but that I'm not doing him -- it's just the tonality."

DiNapoli has been anchoring open-mike nights at Capozzoli's Thursdays through Sundays since the end of December. For years the Italian restaurant and lounge has been a favorite after-hours hangout for such stars as Tom Jones.
