December 15, 2010, San Francisco, CA -Wallin & Barretta’s “A Tribute to Italian Crooners,”one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most beloved and longest-running club acts, will perform at the RRazz room at Hotel Nikko on Monday, December 27, 2010, at 8 p.m. 

There’s no arguing that Italian crooners have made an enormous contribution to American popular culture and they have left an indelible mark, especially, on San Francisco.  Two Bay Area crooners that have been keeping the legacy alive for 15 years, Larry Wallin and Rick Barretta, have been performing their popular act, “A Tribute to Italian Crooners,” in Las Vegas nightclubs, at corporate events, and leading venues from Livermore, Monterey to Palm Springs and many other cities in between.  Their monthly no-holds-barred, sold-out performances at Massimo Restaurant in Walnut Creek, where they reprise the songs by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Louie Prima, Perry Como, Frankie Avalon, and others in the style of the original singers, has become a pilgrimage for fans of these iconic vocalists.

San Franciscan’s, long-known for their love-affair with the great Italian crooners of yesteryear, will have a chance to enjoy Wallin & Barretta’s “A Tribute to Italian Crooners” over the Holiday with loved ones in this special year-end performance. 

Wallin & Barretta will be videotaping the performance for the production of their future promotional video, so all attendees are encouraged to attend in their finest ‘Rat Pack’ era attire.

Wallin & Barretta is backed by a four-piece band featuring music director and pianist Kelly Park, bassist Mike Bacile, saxophonist Tony Malfatti, and drummer T Moran.  For a decade and a half, almost every Wallin & Barretta “performance-meets-party-at-your-favorite-Italian-relative’s-house” is, according to, ‘received with resounding applause and a standing ovation is commonplace after the final number.’
