Danny Sinoff

Danny Sinoff was born in Massachusetts and grew up in Naples, FL. He studied classical piano since the age of two. At 17, Danny discovered jazz, to which he applied his classical technique and creative energy, later developing his own personal jazz vocal style.

After graduation from Barron Collier High School, he attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston pursuing a degree in Piano Performance and Music Technology. After a year, Danny decided to return to Naples, where he gained invaluable experience working with professional musicians.

Danny’s musical influences include Keith Jarrett, Oscar Peterson, Kenny Barron, Brad Mehldau, Benny Green, Bud Powell, Bill Evans, Sarah Vaughan, Wynton Kelly, Harry Connick, Jr. and especially Frank Sinatra. He has performed with David “Fathead” Newman, Jimmy McGriff and The Brubeck Brothers Quartet.

Beginning in 2006, Danny’s quartet was the headliner act at Ellington’s Jazz Club on Sanibel Island, FL. His 2007 CD release for Ellington’s featured Fathead Newman and trumpeter Dan Miller.

Danny has appeared at the Apollo Theater in New York City and at the Syracuse Jazz Festival.

Sinoff led a trio and quartet at Ellington’s until 2010, when he joined us at The Roadhouse Cafe. The Danny Sinoff Trio at the Roadhouse includes Philadelphia veteran Tony Vigilante on drums (Saturdays) and Patricia Dean on drums (Wednesdays).

  1. We saw Danny at Ellington’s about three or four years ago and enjoyed his show very much. We have been trying to find where he is appearing ever since Ellington’s closed, but have been unable to locate him. We are in Florida every year in January or February and would like to see him next time we are there. Can you give me his itinerary for that time? Thank you. Jeanne

    We were so glad to find Danny and hear him and his group when we visited the restaurant last May. We were big fans of Ellington’s and were so disappointed when it closed. The food at the Roadhouse was terrific and listening to Danny was wonderful!! Chuck and Sue Brandon-Fort Lauderdale, FL

  3. Ditto Shari’s comment. Need to contact Danny. Don’t worry though I’m not a poacher. It will not be for a Tues or Sat night.

    Danny and his guys are at JD’s in Pt. Charlotte on Tues and Fri nights. They are fantastic!

  5. I haven’t visited this site before and see it is not updated. Currently, Brian and I are enjoying Danny at the Roadhouse in Ft. Myers and JD’s in Port Charlotte. A GREAT talent and I am so appreciative of the two restaurants that have such wonderful music. I wish more would recognize that music makes success. Especially music like Danny Sinoff and Rich. Great guys, great music. And I can’t say enuogh about Sherry and Marc at the Roadhouse and Joe at JD’s. Thank you, thank you.

    Danny has a special talent combining excellent jazz piano techniques with his own unique flair for modern vocal renditions of classic American Song Book standards that will still be being played 100 years from now. He deserves a broader audience and exposure to bigger markets (however, as long as he promises not to abandon JD’s in Port Charlotte).
