In Las Vegas, when you hear the name Scinta you likely think of The Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown. The Scintas, who just resigned a new two-year engagement contract at The Plaza have been wowing audiences in Las Vegas since 2000 with their old school lounge act that combines comedy and musical impersonations. Called a Vegas institution by many, theirs has become one of the town’s must-see shows. This family act has been going strong since its founding members who are siblings, started performing as kids in Buffalo, New York.
It is Frank Scinta Jr.’s dad – called the “soul of the Scintas” – who founded the group and has been its stalwart for years. So Frank Jr. knows show business! And while he traveled and was “on the road” all throughout his youth with his dad and supremely talented family members, Frank Jr. has never had a desire to perform on stage.
He’s a family man and a businessman, and he and his family are happy to enjoy the quieter side of Las Vegas, right outside of Summerlin in their brand new home at Ridgehaven by Warmington Residential in the southwest.
Frank Jr. moved to Las Vegas with his family in 2000 from Buffalo, New York, his hometown and one that he still misses, albeit less now since moving into his new home this past June with his wife, Dominique, and their two children, 6-year-old Frankie, and 2 and a half-year-old Charlee.
“My memories growing up in Buffalo are of neighborhoods, and friends and block parties,” said Frank Jr. “I feel so happy to have found that sense of community again for my own family here at Ridgehaven.”
He said that he really loves that about his new neighborhood. But when he and Dominique set out to find their perfect home, the number one goal was to find something large enough for a family, near good schools. They definitely wanted new, preferably in a small neighborhood where there was a chance to once again enjoy a close-knit setting.
When they discovered Ridgehaven, he said it all fell into place. They chose the Plan 3, the largest home with nearly 2,400 square feet of space, up to five bedrooms, and four bathrooms. Frank said the biggest selling point for Dominique was the very nice kitchen with tons of white cabinets and a huge center island. They both loved the location near Summerlin, the intimate community setting and how close they’d be to good schools.
Las Vegas has definitely become the new Scinta hometown. And while Buffalo, New York may always live in their hearts, Frank Jr. said that Las Vegas has proven it has got heart. They all finally feel at home, on and off the stage.
