Cole Rumbough is a jazz singer and songwriter inspired by the traditional big band swing music of the 1920s-50s. Although he loves singing the romantic standards that are collectively known as the Great American Songbook, Mr. Rumbough’s own songs salute the witty style of Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. With a velvety, smooth Baritone voice often compared to that of Mel Torme or early Sinatra, “Cole Rumbough’s musical charms are a throwback to the good old days of elegance, sophistication, and glamour,” according to two-time Tony award winning actress, Christine Ebersole.
Based in New York, Mr. Rumbough performed monthly at Le Cirque Café for over three years. He performed his original song, “Pour L’Amour du Chocolat,” at the 2014 Cabaret Convention held in Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center, following his debut at The Metropolitan Room. Mr. Rumbough has sung at many charity balls and galas with the Alex Donner, Bob Hardwick, and Peter Duchin Orchestras, including at the prestigious International Red Cross Ball at The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach and the Viennese Opera Ball at The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan. In New York, Rumbough has sung at the “21” Club, La Grenouille, The Plaza, and The Pierre and has collaborated with three-time Grammy winning jazz pianist, Arturo O’Farrill. Cole Rumbough has also headlined at Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY and made a special guest appearance as featured soloist with the 60-piece Sarasota Pops Orchestra in Florida to celebrate Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday. Mr. Rumbough’s original song, “Awakened,” is featured in the 2013 Supernova Media film of the same title.
