Jake Kambo And His Orchestra
“When the curtain opened and I saw the crowd with all eyes on me, that feeling was unbelievable,” Kambo said.
As a singer who largely does private events, Kambo is a “true, professional entertainer.”
Aside from the actual performance, Kambo told The Breeze his favorite part of the concert was the audience feedback after.
“Someone came up to me and thanked me, and said I helped them forget about their problems for an hour and a half,” Kambo said.
“Another gentleman told me that no one was on their phones the entire show because everyone was just in the moment, and that the performance was magical and awesome. Stuff like that was very nice to hear.”
“I tried to make it so the setlist catered to all ages, so I think everyone liked every song,” he said. “Even though some of my student section didn’t know a few of the older songs, I think they still really enjoyed each one.”
Jake Kambo And His Orchestra
LINCOLN – In June , Jake Kambo, a local singer and student at Lincoln High School, told The Breeze that one of his biggest goals was to have his own orchestra. On Nov. 4, Kambo’s dream will become a reality as he presents “An Evening with Jake Kambo and his Orchestra.”
“I’m really really excited and overwhelmed with happiness. Being able to do this at 17 years old is such a blessing,” he said.
An Evening with Jake Kambo and his Orchestra will take place Saturday, Nov. 4, at Lincoln High School, 135 Old River Road, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 each, and proceeds from ticket sales will raise money for the LHS Class of 2024.
Jake Kambo In the Valley Breeze
From Federal Hill to Carnegie Hall, 17-year-old Jake Kambo of Lincoln is taking every opportunity he can to showcase his voice and pursue his dream of being a professional singer.
“I was like 2 years old, grabbing the microphone and singing the ABCs at my dad’s birthday party,” said Kambo, son of Jacob Kamborian and Jamie DeCubellis. “But my love for older music really began when I was in middle school. I remember my aunt playing ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ by Frank Sinatra and I became obsessed with that song.”
After that, Kambo said he started perfecting his signature crooner style, a deep, jazzy, old-fashioned sound similar to the likes of Sinatra and Michael Buble.
Jake Kambo In the Motif
I am not easily swayed from my intentions or plans, but on a rare occasion even this bloody-minded writer can be put off course by something truly remarkable. Driving through East Greenwich on a bright fall afternoon, a live singing voice floated through the open car window that caused me to cancel my plans, park up and listen. That voice was Jake Kambo, a local crooner who at the tender age of 15, already sounds like the heroes who he emulates. We took a moment between sets to catch up and shine a light on tomorrow’s Chairman of the Board.
I’ve been in love with music ever since I was little. Always tapping my feet to the music so loudly that I get yelled at. But the music that warms my heart, that’s the standards and jazz. I was inspired when I first heard one of the many standards, “Fly Me to the Moon.” I guess you could say I started flying up to the moon.
Jake Kambo Sang at Carnegie Hall
A dream had just come true in my life! From February 1 to February 5, I performed at Carnegie Hall with the honors performance series choir program! The honors performance series program was a worldwide performance for musicians in high school! Out of 20,000 selected applicants, 600 were picked. I felt beyond blessed to say that I was one of the 600! This proved that hard work and dedication paid off!

With Love Always,
Jake Kambo Wins 1st Place
