When you hire Chuck Par-Due to perform at your special event, you won't get some guy wearing a fedora, snapping his fingers in a "cheesy" Rat Pack impersonation!

What you will get is a performer who understands, and is faithful to the style and delivery of the greatest singer of all time!

Chuck is a vocalist in the Frank Sinatra style, and a trumpet player in the Harry James style. Chuck has performed his Sinatra tribute all across America.

The response to Chuck Par-Due's tribute to "Sinatra and the Big Bands" has been fabulous! Chuck performs a one-man show saluting Frank Sinatra and the Big Band Era!!

You have NEVER experienced musical entertainment like Chuck Par-Due's tribute to "Sinatra and the Big Bands!"


Chuck has performed for Presidents Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and George Bush I. In addition, he has performed for several Hollywood legends including Jackie Gleason, and Bob Hope. He has also performed with many jazz greats including Helen Forrest, Bob Haggart, Phil Urso, Herb Ellis and many more.


Chuck Par-Due can provide your occasion with a variety of band sizes, starting with his one man show, to his standard 5 piece band, all the way up to a 15 piece swinging big band!


If you are looking to hire a smaller band, Chuck's 5-man combo is perfect for a wedding reception or private party.


Chuck Par-Due and His Music Makers play the original arrangements of the Harry James orchestra to re-create the sounds of the greatest trumpet player of all time...Harry James. Chuck re-creates "You Made Me Love You", "I'm Beginning to See the Light", "It's Been a Long, Long Time", "Sleepy Lagoon" and many other Harry James hits.

In addition, Chuck Par-Due and His Music Makers play the hits of many of the great Big Bands, including Count Basie, Woody Herman, and Benny Goodman.

A performance by Chuck will take you back to the Golden Age of the Big Bands.
