Charlie Romo is a native New Yorker and grew up in a community and family with strong character which has reinforced in him a style that has served him on stage. He studied music at Wagner College and has performed on the same stage and shows with Usher, Lee Roy Reams, Chita Rivera, and Ben Vereen at both The Friars Club and the Internationally acclaimed Metropolitan Room in NYC.
Charlie is in his 20s and yet totally confident, comfortable and at home on both small and very large stages. His captivating body language, radiant smile, personal warmth and pitch-perfect technical mastery reveals his fresh, new, exciting talent that profoundly engages, energizes and mesmerizes his audience at every show. Charlie has an avid passion for, and a unique interpretation of recognizable renditions of popular standards from the 1950s and 1960s. He revives this music and style of a previous era in a dynamic and refreshing way. With intense excitement and enthusiasm, Charlie has a way of turning back the clock, without imitation, and like a kindred spirit, he embodies and channels the soul and sound of these cherished legends, the likes of Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, and Bing Crosby. Typically, his audiences respond in a wildly enthusiastic fashion as he brings back the romance, flair, subtlety, and the longing of the music that played through a smoky, satiny generation of courtship, club-going and dancing.
Charlie Romo is backed up by The Barry Levitt Quartet, world-class musicians including Barry Levitt, Charlie's Music Director. Barry Levitt has worked with dozens of top artists including Eartha Kitt, Judy Collins, and Ben Vereen. Bobby Darin, at the Copa in 1960 and Charlie Romo of today are both accompanied by Ronnie Zito on drums. Jeff Carney on bass played for Barbra Streisand and Jack Cavari on guitar had the honor of performing with Frank Sinatra.
"This young man is a natural entertainer - by personality and practice. His voice is powerful and solid, the pace was crisp and the energy was high." ~ Fred Cohen, WomenAroundTown.com
"When I heard the opening notes of “Beyond the Sea,” I closed my eyes and found myself in a dream: I was hearing Bobby Darin live. Brilliance that touches the soul can, apparently, result in tears of joy. Take note that this was the reaction of someone who is fiercely protective of her precious songs. Charlie Romo does something entirely different: he turns back the clock. He doesn’t imitate. He embodies. He doesn’t perform “as.” He “is.” In fact, Charlie is a kindred spirit among the performers he adores." ~ Lisa Joy Reitman-Dob, Theater Pizzazz
"He not only melts the hardest of hearts with his endearing, boyish smile, but when the crooner belts out a tune, his engaging, mellow tones not only impress — but bring his audience back to the big band era, when the epitome of romance and sophistication was running rampant and ballroom dancing was all the rage." ~ Carol Ann Benanti, Staten Island Advance
"Charlie Romo's unique and recognizable renditions of popular standards are all audience pleasers. His captivating body language and pitch-perfect technical brilliance reveal he is a fresh, new, exciting talent we feel honored to have seen perform at the very beginning of what promises to be a long and successful career." ~ Thomas Robert Stevens, Applause! Applause!
Charlie Romo is a precocious high-flyer who is ready to rocket you to the moon. ~ Bernie Furshpan, Metropolitan Room, Owner
