Sinatra by Request Christmas Special
“Oh by gosh, by golly. It’s time for mistletoe and holly…” Sinatra by request. Christmas and more…
In this special show, Portland vocalist and pianist John Gilmore joins Tony Starlight as they interpret the greatest hits of the master vocalist known as the “Chairman of the Board” from a unique perspective: John’s dad, Voyle Gilmore, was Frank Sinatra’s record producer at Capitol Records from 1953 to 1958.
Drawing on his many conversations with his dad, John peppers the show with one-of-a-kind anecdotes about Sinatra himself and of the legendary recording sessions of which his father was such an integral part. As first prize-winner of the prestigious “Frank Sinatra Awards” during his years at UCLA, John offers his renditions of the legendary musical material of “Old Blue Eyes” from an insider’s point of view.
Tony and John have a nice rapport on stage which makes this a very entertaining evening. They will also take your requests, both when making your reservation and during the show, including your favorite holiday songs.
