About James Delisco
Crowned “The Entertainer” by Mr. Las Vegas/Wayne Newton himself, on the E! Network’s reality TV series, James Delisco has proved he is more than worthy of that title. After completing his one million dollar contract at the Las Vegas Hilton, where his show opened to rave reviews, Delisco continues to obtain critical acclaim in every market and venue on his recent world-wide touring. An iconoclastic showroom performer with orgiastic energy, Delisco emanates old school charm with contemporary charisma. Where classic quality meets edgy rock and soul style with undeniable stage presence, Delisco is the future of music and entertainment.
