STANDARDS | Joe Scalissi: An Evening with Dean Martin 

I first dug this cat at Festa Italiana two years ago as he tag-teamed the wide-eyed crowd with a Sinatra impersonator to complement his take on Dean Martin. Even off stage, Joe Scalissi was in character with Martin's rapid-fire repartee, charm, and high-octane cocktailing. On stage, the man recreates the legend to a fault — his mannerisms, his humor, and his velvety voice. Even Martin's own daughter was flabbergasted upon hearing Scalissi croon while the ladies swoon. Ask him to play "Sway" and you'll see what I mean. 

Joe Scalissi will perform An Evening with Dean Martin on Thursday, July 17, at 6 p.m.; Friday July 18, at 7:45 p.m.; and Saturday, July 18, at 7:45 p.m. All performances during Festa Italiana at the Italian American Community Center, 150 Frank DiMino Way. $5; and free for those under 16.
