Frank Raines is a complete entertainer!
Performing at Port in Dewey Beach, you usually find him wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shorts. At a recent gig in Altoona, Pennsylvania, he wore one of his several tuxedos. Depending on the venue, you would always find him properly attired for the occasion. In Altoona, it was a dinner set (like he does at Port) of standards from Frank Sinatra & Michael Buble, some classic Chicago, along with an assortment of light music fare from the 60s, 70s, and later. All sung to with exceptional background tracks to have the feel of full orchestra accompaniment. Elvis sets and party sets are done similarly to provide the quality of a live, big band at a fraction of the cost! And one singer with PA system means you can accomodate more quality entertainment in a smaller venue. More value added!


And don't forget, Frank has been a professional Master of Ceremonies for over 20 years. He emcee'd his first Beauty Pageant in 1990 and has hosted TV Shows, National Corporate and Private Events, and nearly any other type of event you can think of over the years. Again, the consumate host and entertainer!
The Dinner Set can be a mix of music such as:
Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?; Fly Me To The Moon; Best Thing To Ever Happen (from Frank's first CD); Haven't Met You Yet; Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You; Moonlight Feels Right; Lady Love; Moonlighting; Beyond the Sea; Almost Like Being In Love; Fool If You Think It's Over; Summer Wind; Quadrilogy Trilogy (3 of my sister's favorites - Brandy, Dancing In The Moonlight, & Ride Captain, Ride); For Once In My Life; Crystal Blue Persuasion; If You're Gone; That's Life; Save The Last Dance For Me; I've Got you Under My Skin; Last of the Singing Cowboys; The Way You Look Tonight; Just The Two Of Us; Mack the Knife; and Beginnings.

The Party/Singalong Set may include songs like:
Fins!; Long Train Running; Temptations & Four Tops Motown 25 Medley (nearly a dozen of their greatest hits); Use Somebody; Mony Mony; Harder To Breathe; Grazing In The Grass; Barry White Medley (4 of Barry's Best); Friends In Low Places; Let It Ride; Word Up; Forget You; Why Don't We Get Drunk and...; A Little Bit More; Brickhouse; No Such Thing; Touch Me; Domino; Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off; You Were On My Mind; Viva La Vida; Jackie Wilson Said; Jump, Jive & Wail; Hooked On A Feeling (oom-pa-sha-ga!); Ol' 55; Steal My Kisses; K.C. & the Sunshine Band Medley (4 of Disco's finest dance songs); New Age Girl; Love Train; Hey Bartender; and many more!

A Hawaiian shirt and shorts is formal attire at this restaurant during the summer at the beach.

At the Port Restaurant and Bar in Dewey Beach, Delaware this past summer and also this fall, you can find Frank "Elvis" Raines performing certain Saturday nights. At Port, Mr. Raines entertained and sang a dinner set of Sinatra, Buble, Darin and such, while patrons enjoyed a fine meal. "Elvis" then came to life for one more show during dessert. And Frank got them all back on their feet and ready to Rock'N'Roll with a danceable, party set to sing along with and get up and party to! And now, the tradition continues through fall, so please stop by!


A Girl's Night Out at Port needed a picture with the King, following his 9:30 Elvis floor show.

To understand what a professional Elvis Tribute Artist should sound like before booking him, Click on one of the .wav files below to sample Frank, performing as "Elvis".

Please be patient, this are large .wav files and may take a few seconds to load. Do not attempt with less thaan a T1 speed connection.

These are the same background tracks Frank uses when performing without a band. They are very similar arrangements to those Elvis used. It IS Frank singing! Please note that these samples have Frank's voice recorded completely dry (without any effect such as reverb on his voice). This allows you to hear how pure Frank's voice truly is. Live, you can close your eyes and it sounds just like Elvis has returned, just for you!

This Year!

Sorry, but so much of the schedule is usually private - weddings, corporate events, private parties, etc., especially around the holidays, but as noted above, there are still many fun opportunities to see your favorite entertainer in 2017 again.

You'll be able to catch Frank for Breakfast with Elvis at noon, every Sunday from Memorial Day thru Labor Day next summer again at the Starboard in Dewey Beach. On occasional weekend evenings during the summer, Frank joins various groups that perform onstage there, as Elvis during their performances, so you never know where he will pop up in Dewey Beach. Check this space for dates and times! He nearly always shows up when "Bruce In The USA!" is around, so watch out!
Also again in 2015, I have returned to the "Bethany Boathouse" Restaurant and Bar for Saturday evening shows! It is the "Frank, Elvis & Raines Show" as Frank kicks off the evening with a dinner set from 5 - 6:15. Elvis appears around 6:45 for nearly an hour-long show. Then Mr. Raines returns with party hits to sing-a-long with and dance to. It is a fun evening!

There are always a multitude of private parties for the Elvis Week in August, and all season long, Frank does the Ravens pregame party at Indusco. Frank also performs at various regular holiday events throughout the year. I will post the details as they get closer so keep an eye on this web-site.
