About Us

Phil Orapallo has been singing for most of his life. He is originally from NYC, born in Manhattan, and lived in the Bronx and Queens.  As a teenager, he sang with an acappella group called “The Modernaires”.  After he married he resided on Long Island. There he raised his family and put singing on hold for a number of years. 

In 1993, Phil and his family moved to Venice, Florida. In 1994 an acappella group called N.Y.C.D. (New York City Doowop) was formed.  N.Y.C.D. sang for 10 years at many community fundraising functions, benefits and dance parties in the Sarasota area.  Phil found himself back doing what he loved, street corner harmony acappella music.  N.Y.C.D. was dissolved in 2006 and Phil was once again looking for an avenue in which to sing.

In 2004, Phil met Jeff Sykes at an oldies dance.  At this dance the performers asked Jeff and Phil to sing a couple of cameo leads.  Jeff and Phil exchanged phone numbers.  
     In 2007, Phil and Jeff  were reacquainted and “Perfect Chord” was formed. Perfect Chord produced and performed “Oldies/Doo Wop Dances” at the Venice Community Center in Venice, Fl. for 8 years. In 2016 Phil moved to Lakewood Ranch, Florida to be closer to family. Phil has performed many shows at Del Webb Lakewood Ranch Fl, Valencia Lakes Wimauma, Fl and SRQ Sarasota,Fl.

Currently, Phil is performing as a solo act.
