We are pleased to have added Francis’s 2 new singles to our playlist Charade and Hello Young Lovers.
This experienced, high-energy entertainer, Francis Dey, brings back the golden days when Sinatra, Davis, Darin and Martin
would bring an audience to its feet with no more than an inflection of their voice. Add in a touch of Michael Jackson’s dance
moves, and you’ll realize why Francis Dey is a “must see entertainer.”
As a young boy, Francis Dey jumped at every chance to perform, eager to develop his talents. Francis would perform at school
dances, weddings… anywhere there was a mic. If you were to ask him about some of those rewarding performances, he
would tell you that weddings were at the top of the list.
Francis got his break when he was selected for the cast of “Up With People.” Soon after, with diploma in hand, it was time to
hit the music scene full time. Francis put together a combo and, armed with his years of training, went out on the road. His
second break came along when he was asked to perform with the Glenn Miller Big Band. Francis loved the Big Band sound,

becoming a Las Vegas showman came true.
Francis signed a recording and management contract under Buck Ram and Jean Bennett, the owners and founders of the hit
recording group The Platters (“Only You,” “Twilight Time,” “Smoke gets in your Eyes”.) After an intense internship under the
strict rule of Buck Ram, Francis was ready for the stage in Las Vegas.
Not long after his debut at the Aladdin Hotel, Francis released his first album, “Welcome to Vegas,” to great success. Francis’
was soon billed as the headliner in the showroom of the Four Queens Hotel. From there, Francis Dey’s performances were
seen in many of the legendary showrooms of Vegas.
After years of international touring and twenty years of headlining in Vegas, Francis was looking for a new opportunity. When
he was asked to produce and headline a new show in Orlando, Florida, Francis moved south. The opportunity rekindled his
spirit. The new show opened at The Plaza Show Theater in downtown Orlando to great reviews. Francis found his new home
of Orlando to be a great place to perform, and the people to be warm and appreciative of his music.
If you have the chance to be in his audience you will see why Francis Dey is a “must see showman.” Francis was made for
show business and would trade nothing for it. He says, “To get paid to do something you are truly passionate about… it’s a
