The Scintas are an immensely charismatic group of performers whose old school lounge act has become a Sin City institution over the years by keeping it in the family, and now you can experience their combination of unforgettable music and hilarious comedy at The Plaza in Downtown.
Frankie Scinta, Joey Scinta, and “adopted Scintas” Peter O’Donnell and Janien Valentine take the stage at the classic showroom in The Plaza and blow away audiences with right on the money interpretations of beloved songs and good humor in a show that’s a throwback to old school showbiz style with a few modern twists.
The talented group started humbly, with the Scinta brothers starting their act as singers at a piano bar in their hometown of Buffalo, New York. As buzz built for their act, the duo became so popular that customers would line up around the block to see them perform. When their brother from another mother Peter O’Donnell joined the act, the group knew they had something special. They moved to Las Vegas and added female vocalist Valentine to their roster, where they’ve become beloved headliners seen by over two million people who have turned their showbiz dreams into reality.
In their gimmick-free show, the group sings inventive yet respectful versions of beloved tunes from iconic acts like Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Johnny Mathis, Joe Cocker, and Billy Joel as well as contemporary stars like Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and Coldplay backed by a smoking band. Frontman Frankie throws in plenty of good-natured humor, cracking wise about his Sicilian heritage and interacting with the rest of the group in a throwback to the classic Las Vegas stage banter of Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin, which keeps the audience in stitches between songs.
The Scintas dreamed of a life in showbiz, and the gifted group of singers and musicians have made their dreams come true with a showcase at The Plaza that jettisons gimmicks in favor of pure talent, stage presence, good humor, and classic showmanship in which the old-school lounge singers and band pay loving homage to the musicians that inspired them.
