Sal Valentinetti is an Italian-American crooner know best for his flawless vocals, larger than life personality and his heart of gold. Born August 26, 1995 to Steve and Maria Valentinetti, Sal was raised in the small town of Bethpage, New York. Sal’s grandmother, Tina Valentinetti, influenced him from a very young age to love the musical genius of the classic crooner sounds of Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra. At the young age of fifteen Sal realized the hidden talent he possessed and began performing his flawless tribute to the great Frank Sinatra. Before long, the world came to know him as “Sal the Voice.”
AMERICA’S GOT TALENT
In 2016, Season 11 of the NBC hit show America’s Got Talent was taken by storm by Sal Valentinetti. The 20 year old college student that delivered pizza for his cousin’s Italian restaurant was now in the spotlight. Belting out the classic Frank Sinatra hit “My Way,” Sal not only received a standing ovation but got the coveted “Golden Buzzer” from judge Heide Klum, with whom he later performed a duo, singing “Santa Baby.” Although Sal did not win the overall competition, he rose to stardom and his professional music career was launched.
LIFE AFTER AGT
Sal left for Hollywood as a pizza delivery man and returned home to Bethpage as a National Rock Star. His live show, featuring his new band “The Black Tie Brass,” is now in great demand. Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti sold out three Christmas Shows at the now famous, Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York. Then his dream came true, an opportunity to perform in the round at one of Frank Sinatra’s favorite venues, The Theatre at Westbury, formerly known as The Westbury Music Fair. Sal loves to tell the story of how his father saved up just enough money to see Frank Sinatra on June 11, 1975 in Westbury. The Valentinetti family returned to Westbury on March 3, 2017 and they watched with pride as Sal performed his 90 minute show to a sold out crowd of 3,000 people just like his idol, Frank Sinatra.
SAL HITS THE ROAD
After Sal’s successful sellout shows at home, he teamed up with some of the country’s top promoters and agents like Brian Rosenberg, Robert Maffia, Fever Entertainment and TCI Talent Agency and he is now touring the country as one of the hottest new performers on the scene. Sal is playing cities like Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Melbourne, Las Vegas and is also booked at many Live Nation venues across the United States. Sal has also found the perfect fit for his performance and is now being labeled “The Beast of the Italian Feast.” October 2017 Sal will be the official Grand Marshal of the Columbus Day parade in Chicago which is the second largest parade in the country.
WHAT’S COMING UP FOR “SAL THE VOICE”
In between shows on the road, Sal is in the studio working on his first EP which is came out in spring of 2017 and a Christmas album which was released in September 2017. Sal has also become a dominant force on social metworking, reaching up to a quarter million people per video and over 300,000 followers. It all started with that first appearance on America’s Got Talent where the judges unanimously agreed he was a star, but Heidi Klum declared “I like the way you talk. I like the way you sing. I like everything about you” and she pounded the magical button that launched his “Golden Ticket” to stardom. We are currently finding out that it was not only a game changer for Sal but it has created a revival in music. The standards of yesteryear are now being listened to by 4 generations of Americans and music lovers abroad. “Old Blue Eyes” would be proud. Sal is not only influencing people with his music, he has also become a role model for millennials. Mr. Valentinetti was named “Restaurants Against Drunk Driving” (RADD) Man of the Year 2016.

Rule of 3 is a 3-piece acoustic band from the North Shore of Boston.The band has built its reputation on its strong 3-part harmonies and lively shows that tend to turn into sing-alongs. Comprised of guitarist Paul Carr, bassist Richard Marino and drummer Pat Seitz, the band covers an eclectic variety of songs from the ’60s through the ’80s. Tunes like The Beatles’ “A Day in the Life,” Chicago’s “Beginnings,” The Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” Spiral Staircase’s “I Love You More Than Yesterday,” Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Love The One You’re With,” Badfinger’s “No Matter What” or Orleans’ “Dance With Me” thrill audiences throughout Boston’s North Shore and beyond.
In 2017, Rule of 3 was invited to be the opening band for Sal Valentinetti in his only Boston area performance. The audience was incredibly enthusiastic and energized and Sal & his orchestra could not have been more supportive of the bands opening of the show. Rule of 3 is excited to take the stage at The Cabot, and honored to be asked once again to be the opening act for such a talented performer.
Guitarist Paul Carr, the son of Jazz bassist John Carr, has been a fixture in the Boston music scene for over three decades. “Because all three of us are playing instruments and singing at the same time, Rule of 3 is able to create a fuller sound than you would normally expect from a 3-piece band,” states Carr.
Bassist Rich Marino (who is the proprietor of Chianti Ristorante across from The Cabot) had a grammar school singing scholarship to the Boston Archdiocese Choir School where he had the opportunity to perform with the likes of the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops. “We grew up in an era of great harmony songs. Well written songs, a strong performance, and an appreciative audience are the recipes for an enjoyable evening,” says Rich.
Drummer Pat Seitz developed his chops while playing the rock band scene in his native Philadelphia. “Rule of 3 is a result of the life-long passion for music and entertainment that we all shared individually and which turned into something much bigger, when we formed this band,” says Pat.
