Bursting onto the music and entertainment scene in 2016, Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti made headlines during Season 11 of the hit NBC Show America’s Got Talent, when he received the coveted Golden Buzzer from super model Heidi Klum for his rendition of the Frank Sinatra classic My Way.  Since then, the New York native has continued to belt out the classic crooner sounds of Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra all over the nation, selling out shows, and taking part in the evening’s festivities during the Grand Opening celebration at Ocean Resort Casino.


Chicago native Haley Reinhart has been performing her whole life and rose to prominence after taking home third place during the 10th season of American Idol. The following year, she made her full-length debut with Listen Up!, a 2012 Interscope Records release that premiered at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart. Reinhart’s spellbinding rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” hit #1 on Spotify’s global viral chart in 2015 and has amassed over 57 million streams on the platform. That same year, Reinhart began collaborating and touring with YouTube sensation Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, offering up jazz/ragtime/swing-inspired updates of songs like Radiohead’s “Creep” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” Her Postmodern Jukebox contributions have garnered more than 112 million views on YouTube.


Landau Murphy, Jr. rose to fame by winning Season Six of America’s Got Talent through soulful interpretations of classics from Cole Porter, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and others. Following his win, he released his Columbia Records debut album That’s Life, which reached #1 on the Billboard Jazz chart. In the time since, Murphy has released two more albums, the most recent of which includes his signature take on popular Great American Songbook standards and classic R&B tracks. Murphy has appeared on The Today Show, The View, CNN, Fox & Friends, The Wendy Williams Show, The Talk, Anderson Cooper, Tom Joyner, Sirius XM, NPR, The Daily Buzz and dozens of other local and national media outlets.


Passaic, NJ native Joe Piscopo has been a staple of entertainment for nearly four decades when he began his career as a stand-up coming in 1980 and was later invited to join the Saturday Night Live cast. It was during his four-year run there that Piscopo made a name for himself, most notably for his impressions of celebrities like Frank Sinatra and for his hit single The Honeymooners Rap. He became known for his outrageous Miller Lite commercials, appeared on Broadway in Grease, made television guest appearances on such shows as Law & Order, and appeared in multiple movies, including starring roles in Johnny Dangerously with Michael Keaton and Wise Guys with Danny DeVito. He currently hosts his own morning radio show on AM 970 The Answer.
