Singer Doug Ferony has been pleasing audiences for over 20 years with his delivery of many traditional pop, rock, swinging standards and love songs. Singing at many different weddings, concerts, events and venues every year, Doug sends his songs out with passion, warmth and excitement.

Doug has also appeared in many big hit films such as Goodfellas, Back to School, Mr Deeds, Spiderman II, The Brave One, Inside Man, along with TV's Law & Order and the Sopranos.

The Doug Ferony Show is a night filled with America's Greatest Songs. Covering many classic songs with a variety of favorites from over the years including selections from Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Doug normally performs with his 6 and 12 piece orchestra and sometimes his full 25 piece ensemble.




By Scott Yanow
"When Doug Ferony sings, his warm voice, high musicianship, enthusiasm, and sincerity make the music he performs infectious and joyful, even when he is interpreting a touching ballad. It is always obvious that he loves timeless standards and has the voice and phrasing to make them sound fresh and relevant. While he makes no secret of his love for the singing of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin, he does not feel compelled to merely copy his predecessors and instead displays a sound of his own within the tradition of first-class singing.

His career has included a variety of accomplishments. “When I was very young,,” remembers Doug, “my parents played Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Tony Bennett and Dean Martin records around the house in addition to Rosemary Clooney and Ella Fitzgerald. I remember being very impressed by Frank Sinatra at an early age.” While growing up, he played drums for a time, inspired by Buddy Rich. However by the time Doug was in high school, he knew that he wanted to pursue a career in singing.

In 1985, Doug Ferony moved to Los Angeles where he studied voice with Howard Austin and started gigging. He also went to acting school and began working in films. Through the years he has appeared in many major motion pictures including Back To School, GoodFellas, Spiderman II, and The Brave One in addition to such television series as Law & Order and The Sopranos. But singing before audiences has been his main love. Doug spent much of the 1990s in New York and fondly remembers performing three nights a week with a trio at the World Trade Center during 1995-96, singing regularly at the Supper Club with his big band, and with a piano duo at Tavern On The Green. Doug currently performs all over the country including at supper clubs, casinos, racetracks, cruises and concerts, and he recently worked a show at the Paramount Center for the Arts with veteran singer Al Martino. Some of Doug's performances include the Westchester Country Club, Empire City/Yonkers Raceway, the C-Note Jazz Club, The Arthur Ashe US Open, and on the Las Vegas Strip at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino. (More venues and appearances)

Doug has many popular recordings such as I'm In Love With A Girl (title track featured in the film, "Mr. Vincent), This One's For You, Time After Time, It's Christmas, I Ain't Got You, and America's Greatest Songs. “Lovers is intimate and thoughtful,” says Doug. “I wanted this to be a nice easy-listening candle-lit romantic CD. I've recorded a lot of uptempo swing in the past so this is a change of pace."

"What I enjoy most about standards and swing is that I can understand and relate to the lyrics. I pride myself in doing justice to lyrics and I try to bring a lot of passion and fun to the music". Doug Ferony succeeds on all levels throughout Lovers, making the classic songs and vintage lyrics sound as if they were written specifically for him to communicate to today's listeners.

Doug Ferony made our wedding! He and the band are such a blast and beyond talented. Doug was so professional from start to finish. He was extremely attentive during the planning process and answered all questions, catering to our every need.

Doug's stage presence and amazing song repertoire had everyone out of their seats, smiling and dancing throughout our entire wedding. There was never a dull moment and all age groups, from our friends to grandparents enjoyed the music.

We were married in 2010 and still have people telling us what a great time they had and how they loved the band! I highly recommend Doug Ferony if you want a really fun reception with lots of happy guests and awesome memories!

"Doug Ferony and 12 incredible members of his orchestra were the talk of our Hunter Mtn. wedding this July. Their energy, incredibly vibrant sound and effortless professionalism made them the perfect choice for our Italian-style celebration. Doug’s performance yielded more than just dozens of guest compliments, it gave our wedding the precise sound and feel we have envisioned. He was able to work off a very tight schedule that incorporated seven different courses and managed to weave our hand-selected songs into his guest-intuitive sets. Doug is truly the consummate professional, but most of all, an incredible musician who’s dynamic energy, talented orchestra and “I’m-a-part-of-the-family” attitude earns him my highest recommendation for anyone seeking a high-impact live band. - Crystalyn S

Doug performed at our wedding reception with his 3 piece band. The music was fantastic and provided a lively atmosphere. He was very professional and very detail oriented. He made sure to touch base with me well in advance about performance details. He was excited to perform at our wedding, and eager to make sure things went smoothly during the reception. His performance was full of energy and fun yet very respectful and elegant. We had a great evening and enjoyed his music.

Doug Ferony and his band played at our wedding in New York on 30th April 2011. I grew up listening to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and all the greats and always wanted that music to reflect in our wedding. I was looking for bands on the Internet and as soon as I heard Dougs voice I knew the search was over. From the moment Doug introduced himself we were at ease. Doug is an absolute gentleman. When Doug and his band began to play there were never a shortage of guests on the dance-floor. For our first dance Doug performed a trio of "It had to be you" "When I fall in love" and "The way you look tonight" It was so special for us, throughout the reception Doug and his band played all the songs from our play-list with a couple of his own selections thrown in, Doug has a lovely warmth to his voice and a his friendly manner and charisma entertained everyone at our wedding. When Doug sang the last 2 songs of our reception "My way"& "New York, New York" every single person was on the dance-floor & the atmosphere was amazing. Doug is sincere, entertaining extremely talented and his band are an amazing group of musicians. Doug was the highlight of our wedding and we can't thank him enough for making it such a day to remember. We have no hesitation in recommending Doug and his band for any event if your lucky enough to book them!!!
