“Great Potential but Too Loud to Enjoy”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

There's no doubt that Frankie Moreno is an outstanding musician (sings, plays piano, guitar, harmonica) and song writer. I would have given the show 5 stars were it not for the loudness of the show. The music was so loud that you could not understand the words to the songs. I've never understood why it is necessary to play so loud in a relatively small showroom. We, in the showroom, can hear it - there's no need for those standing outside to also hear the show. The show lasts for exactly one hour so, if you want to see what Frankie Moreno is all about, just bring ear plugs!

“A Disappointment”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Watched the show based on very good reviews on this website and Yelp. Moreno either had an off night or we expected too much (we are Las Vegas resident).
Moreno sure has some raw talent, but not able to completely showcased it. In my opinion, he was too self promoting (his own song writing ability) and not doing enough cover songs. Two of his own songs were pretty good. The sound level was definitely too loud for a small showroom; the band was definitely good.
The show was short, lasted only one hour. Mr. Moreno shoould take lessons from a show that we saw lately by the legendary Mr. Paul Anka, at the young age of 72, Mr. Anka sang and danced for almost two hours.

“Phenomenol entertainer”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Frankie Moreno is a very talented performer. With a strong, beautiful voice, excellent piano and harmonica skills, and a little guitar as well. He has great moves, knows how to relate to the audience, and interacts well with his band and guest. His band is very talented with violins, guitars, and horns. Most of the music that he plays are original pieces, and they are excellent. They did play a phenomenol interpretation of the Beatles' Eleanor Rigby, which was amazing.

“Amazingly Talented!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Frankie Moreno's show at the Stratosphere was one of the best shows ever seen! So much energy and talent! His band, which includes 3 horns and 3 strings, is amazing! Frankie writes, sings and composes the music for the show. Would love to see him again and again! Don't miss him...once one of their songs becomes a top ten hit you'll pay double, triple, or more to see him at Caesars or MGM!

“Frankie Kept Us Laughing”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

First and foremost, Frankie Moreno is hilarious. We didn't realize the show would be as witty as it was.

We came expecting another lounge act, but this show is so much more.

Frankie is super talented and his band is phenomenal. Its hard to stay seated throughout the whole act as every song makes you want to dance. However, Frankie does allow for that opportunity at the end of his show.

He offered the audience Crown Royale which was neat. My husband happily went up to the stage and had his glass filled.

We would watch this show over and over again. Frankie Moreno is definitely the new Mr. Las Vegas.
