Donny Most, best known as “Ralph Malph” on the long-running hit sitcom, Happy Days, brings the songs recorded by Sinatra, Darin, Martin, Ellington and Bennet to life through his engaging interpretations and creative orchestra arrangements. The swing era and 50’s cool are fused together in one very entertaining show, presented with either an 8-piece or 17 piece “swinging” big band. Donny has always loved the standards/swing/big band style of music, his show is a loving tribute and fun-filled evening. Audiences have been known to snap fingers, clap hands, tap feet and dance in the aisles, literally. Donny and his big band were featured headliners at Muckenthaler Performing Arts Center’s Jazz Festival; Hershey Symphony Orchestra; Catalina’s Jazz Club, Los Angeles; Iridium Jazz Club, NYC; Prince Music Theater, Philadelphia; Orlando Jazz Orchestra; Feinstein’s 54 Below, NYC; Kentucky Derby and Sundance Film Festival and others.
Most’s singing voice was originally featured in episodes of Happy Days, he was then signed to MGM Records where he recorded an album and had a single that was included on the Billboard HOT 100 for 3 weeks. Today, Donny has four studio albums and is currently in the studio recording his fifth album.
On the acting side, Donny had a recurring role on the hit TV show GLEE and in the feature films ED TV directed by Ron Howard, Crazy Mama directed by Jonathon Demme, and The Great Buck Howard starring John Malkovich.
