Frankie Capri, One-Man Band: Music for All Occasions

Release Date: 1989. Not commercially available

Producer / Director / Editor: Craig McTurk

Camera: Mike Lichtenberger

Sound: Tom Deem

This 1989 short documentary profiles an electrifying, charismatic lounge singer who changes his persona with the mere change of a hat – morphing from Sinatra, to Elvis, to Dean Martin, among other legends. Aided by his mechanical ‘friends’ and carnival light show, Capri draws packed crowds of all ages and backgrounds who call Pittsburgh’s Liberty Belle Lounge their home away from home.
