Lou Lanza, a crooner of the first order, thrives on the cultural and musical heritage of the city of his birth: Philadelphia. His impressive musical family background speaks for itself: an opera singer grandfather, a classical violinist father, and a pianist/organist & vocalist mother. His jazz influences came from another of his relatives, Vince Trombetta, a saxophonist & arranger who served as musical director of The Mike Douglas Show. Lou’s music teachers include Carlo Menotti, Jimmy Bruno, Michael Leonard, and Larry McKenna. His live performances in Philadelphia, New York, London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas amongst others earns him the admiration of many industry professionals, colleagues, and fans.
