Sinatra Songs & Stories with Tony Starlight & John Gilmore
In this special show vocalist and pianist John Gilmore joins Tony Starlight as they present the best of Frank Sinatra, through stories and song. Tony has read over a dozen biographies of Mr. S and is well versed on Sinatra lore. John Gilmore is a first-prize winner of the prestigious “Frank Sinatra Awards” during his years at UCLA, and John offers his accounts from a rare insider’s point of view. How so? Read more…
This show is made all the more special because of John Gilmore’s personal connection to Frank Sinatra. 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.
Tony and John have a nice rapport on stage and their interchange promises to make this a very entertaining evening. And as usual, Tony and John open up the second set to your requests!
