Michael Ross Nugent is a 25 year old jazz standard vocalist from Buffalo, New York who now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. He fell in love with the Great American Songbook and the smooth voices of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Bing Crosby and Michael Bublé as a teenager. He has been performing as a solo act for the past 6 years in which he brings crowds back to a time when singers were backed up by swinging big bands. Michael stresses the importance of keeping the standards alive for generations to come. He is an old soul, and not only sings these timeless songs, but interprets them in way that tells a story. With over 1,000 live performances, Michael has acquired a knack for entertaining with his genuine, charismatic, and interactive style of performing, putting a high priority on making sure his audiences are relaxed, comfortable, and having fun! He also has been very fortunate to have earned 1st place in 3 Western New York vocal competitions by singing songs from the genre he loves. Whether he is performing at a night club, country club, restaurant, festival, wedding, retirement community, or at a private party, he puts his heart and soul into his own interpretation of the most classic songs of all time!
