My name is Bernardo Agro everyone calls me Ben, born and raised in Hamilton Ontario Canada, October 14th, 1962 but I am FBI…….?(Full Blooded Italian)LOL! My parents Filippo and Angela Agro immigrated from Sicily, I soon learned the Italian Culture before the Canadian Culture and it taught me about Close Family, Good Friends, Great Food and Song! I definitely have been influenced by my Father Filippo Agro and my Uncles Charlie, Carmen and Joe for they would always sing together at every family function, they would sing mostly Italian songs, but they also sang songs by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Al Martino, Mario Lanza, Luciano Pavarotti and even Elvis Presley and some how these songs stuck in my head as a child. I came to appreciate these songs in my 30’s and began buying CD’s by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley,Tom Jones, etc… I soon discovered Karaoke and started buying Karaoke Cd’s and loved it for I could follow the words and learn these never dying songs.
Presently living in Brantford Ontario since 2007. I am Married to my lovely Wife Debora and we have three wonderful girls Angela, Emily and Nicole and Grandson Nicholas. My full time job is Building Inspector and my co-workers call me “The Singing Inspector”. I started performing at a charity function for my daughter Nicole’s hockey team, we did a Karaoke/Casino night and I was in charge of the entertainment, so I borrowed sound equipment, bought more Karaoke CD’s, bought a tuxedo and made an Elvis suit out of painter’s overalls, needless to say it was a success, everyone had a blast and people were shocked that I could actually sing and perform, they all thought I was the quiet type. Soon after I entered several singing competitions and was usually in the top 5 finalists and I received many complements and loads of encouragement. I now perform as a Tribute Artist to Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra for Corporate Functions, Charity Events, Canadian Legions, Retirement Homes, Weddings, Birthday Parties, Anniversary Parties, Christmas Parties Restaurants and Bars.
