Biography

About Fred de Jong

If you’re in Aruba, into Frank Sinatra and material broadly defined as the “American Songbook” you want to head to one of the Aruba Sinatra Shows and catch Aruba’s Fred de Jong singing and performing as “Mr. Sinatra” in the prime of his life.

Izaäk Franciscus (Fred) de Jong , play/the young/, was born on August 7th, 1963 in Strijen in the Netherlands and he moved to Aruba in 1997.

You’ll soon discover that Mr. de Jong understands and loves this material and has worked very hard to capture the phrasing and mannerisms of “old blue eyes.” No small feat for any entertainer. …especially one who is European…

Mr. de Jong is backed only by recorded instrumentals of the tunes he sings. A typical show is fun, fast-paced, entertaining and well worth the nominal cover charge.

If you are a fan of performers like “Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé or Harry Connick jr., you should definitely see on of Fred’s shows! Fred is a great showman and gives a romantic performance of Sinatra’s composed, orchestrated and arranged big band songs with wonderful romantic lyrics.

Theater and Dinner Shows

When Fred performs in a show room or theater you can take any spot and enjoy a Las Vegas Style Sinatra Show and he might even enter the seating area sometimes.

Each Dinner show is an intimate setting that allows him to stroll from table to table while singing or stay at the back ground if preferred by the restaurant. If you are looking for a relaxing, romantic and delicious evening….you can’t go wrong with an Aruba Sinatra Dinner Show.

When Fred arrives to a venue he starts setting up and approaches as much guests as possible to introduce himself and get to know a bit about each one or will stay in the back ground if preferred by the restaurant or in case of a theater show. He is very personable and easy to talk to. After speaking briefly with everyone, he begins his first set/the show.

Fred takes the time to give you a little bit of background on each song which is a nice extra. From the first note, you will know you have made a great decision to attend his show. His voice is amazing as is his stage presence. At times he makes his way around the room and it is almost like he is singing just to you personally sometimes.

Even during the breaks between sets if applicable Fred doesn’t rest his voice, but goes around the room chatting with the audience about the show and just life in general.

Fred is outgoing, friendly and an entertainer in the truest sense of the word. The entire evening will be a very memorable experience and one that you’ll be glad you had. Fred makes you feel as if you were old friends just returning back home. You might even want to enjoy a few dances to your favorite Sinatra songs.

Any Aruba Sinatra Show will make your stay on Aruba very special and an evening to remember.

DVD Aruba Sinatra Senior Citizen Show 2013

Fred’s first (1st) DVD  is a live video recording of his first (1st) Aruba Sinatra Senior Citizen Show in 2013, where songs in the style of Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble and Harry Conick jr. have been performed, which are written by song writers like Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart, Harold Arlen, Ted Koehler, Johnny Mercer, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Cole Porter, Cammy cahn, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh and many others, with arrangements made by arrangers like Quincy Jones, Billy May, Don Costa and Nelson Riddle.  …

What do Fred’s guests say about him:

“His renditions of Sinatra’s songs were excellent and the big band background music was a perfect accompaniment. Fred has a wonderful voice and a great personality that comes across in his performance.”

“Mr. de Jong really impressed me with his wonderful voice, and very professional, polished performance. He really captured the sound and performance styling’s of Mr. Frank Sinatra but presented them in a very casual, comfortable and pleasing way. We will especially remember his friendliness and down-to-earth personality, as he actually took time to speak with us and other diners (answering questions about his performance and Aruba in general) in between sets. The restaurant was also terrific, very fresh seafood, well prepared and very kind and helpful owners/staff. All in all, it was a wonderful and memorable evening. I will recommend the show and dinner to all who will be traveling to Aruba, it is an absolutely must for Frank Sinatra fans (which I admit I very much am), you will not be disappointed.”

“We enjoyed Fred’s Sinatra show, he does all the favorite songs mixed with some lesser known ones. He is engaging with the audience. This is a unique experience for Aruba.”

“I’m a big fan of Sinatra, but too young to have had the chance to see him in the flesh, so I’ve been to a few tribute acts – Fred is one of the best I’ve seen. He has perfected Ol’ Blue eyes look, mannerisms and inflections when performing but don’t think for a minute it’s a rigid portrayal of the character – it’s so much more than that.

The lounge itself is an intimate setting, about a dozen tables, and Fred welcomed us individually, introducing himself and getting to know each of his guests a little before beginning the show. He worked through some classics, some less well known and threw in a few ‘featured artist’ numbers too each one performed in a way that made out feel like it was uniquely different this time to last week’s show. Fred goes out his way to ensure his guests enjoy the show, on our visit one of the other dinners had an accident and had to leave to attend the local hospital, her party returned towards the end of the show and Fred performed a set just for them (and us) after he was due to finish – and the extra set was just as polished as the first.

I could go on about Fred but by now I’m sure you get the picture; nice guy, great performer and a really enjoyable evening.”

“Fred does an excellent job of channeling the chairman of the board. His voice is superb and he sounds just like Sinatra…especially in his phrasing. He was also very warm and got to know the crowd and made us feel very comfortable. It was a very romantic evening and we would certainly return to enjoy this show again and again.”
