Tommy DelCorio Jr, actor/ singer/ producer/ businessman, was born on March 22, 1955 in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia (South Philly). His father Tommy DelCorio Sr was a boxer who fought under the name “Fighting Tommy Muldoon”. His mother Angelina loved music and theater and passed this love on to her son. This gave Tommy both a strong and creative personality.

As a young boy, Tommy rubbed elbows with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Louie Prima, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Frankie Avalon, Jimmy Durante and many more. Consequently, he developed a love for the Great American Songbook.
As an actor, Tommy has appeared in several feature and indie films and on television. Notable projects include Sleeping with the Fishes, Frank Lisi’s A Sicilian Tale, Martin Scorsese’s Age of Innocence, and the lead roles of the Warden in the feature film Womens Playground and mobster Gerry Capone in the film Inside Pocket. Tommy also served as a Producer of the feature film The Red Corvette, and as Executive Producer of the upcoming indie film The Avenue.
As a performer, Tommy has entertained in Atlantic City, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and throughout Philadelphia. He also starred in The Sinatra Birthday Bash at the Count Basie Theater. In 2015 he performed in a Frank Sinatra Centennial Birthday Show and Fundraiser for the Hoboken Historical Museum.
