A Note to Frank, Dean, and Sammy from Bob Long – Old Time Jazz DJ
“Move over Gents. There’s a new Man knocking at the Rat Pack door, and he comes complete with white shirt, open collar, loose bow tie, dinner jacket, super 150 black slacks, right on down to his sleek, black suede, tussled slippers.
And he sings – the good stuff; the American Songbook and more – in key, in time. Smooth. He’s probably twice the height of Sammy, but he ain’t lookin’ down at nobody. He’s looking up in admiration of you guys, looking to carry on the torch of exquisite songs, marvelously sung and swung.
He did that the other night at Club TantraNova. It’s a new place for cool cats and sexy hipsters to relax, dig the sensuous sounds and trip a light-fantastic toe across the dance floor.
His name is Freddy Zental. When he knocks, you might wanna’ let him in. “Man, this Nightingale sings in TantraNova Square.”

Freddy Zental Weaver is a performing artist, accomplished percussionist and singer, stand-up comedian and story teller. He has toured the United States, performing at playhouses and theatres, yoga studios, conferences, performing arts centers, festivals, colleges and private events. An actor since the age of eight years, he has appeared in Medea with Bea Richards and Maya Angelou. He has also performed in readings with Universal Studios. Not to mention the work he did with Black on Black at the University of Hawaii. As well as his performance in The Life and Times of Thomas Paine, in San Francisco.
Freddy Zental always wanted to sing. However, he was told at an early age that he couldn’t. He was determined to birth his one-man show, ‘Sexual Enlightenment.’ In his late forties, he wanted to create a multi-media experience that would include singing, comedy, drums and electronics. So he then started to embark on developing himself as a singer. Today, after years of great voice coaches, regular open mic performances and serious practicing, he is proud to present an evening of song and inspiration.
