Professional Show Environment
Tony has designed the showroom to look good and sound like a professional Vegas showroom. As you know, most event spaces can look lovely but weren’t designed for music and conversation. Wood floors, open beams, glass and hard walls create an echo, boom and din that can be cacophonous. Our venue has perfect acoustics to allow live music along with lively conversations. And with our clear sightlines to the stage, there is not a bad seat in the house.
We invite you to see and hear the difference. Since we’re open for public shows there is ample opportunity to see and hear the room in action. This allows you to see and hear the entertainment, taste the food and drinks, and experience our service first hand.

Feedback from Clients
“Well, everyone has been telling me what a great time they had last night. Everything was a hit! Tony, I had heard you performing Sinatra and Dean Martin, but dang! You are one very talented man! I THOROUGHLY enjoyed myself and got all the references. I also enjoyed the younger generation finding we “older folk” amusing. Steve, the food was GREAT! Everyone enjoyed the delicious delights – all of it! and the service was wonderful. Honestly guys, it was a perfect evening! Thank you!
“We didn’t have to worry about a thing. From our first meeting to the final performance, Tony took care of everything – lighting, sound, and stage setup. He’s the complete, professional package. Tony personalized his performance to our specific needs. He read and responded to our audience perfectly. We were impressed with Tony’s professionalism, responsiveness, and down to earth qualities. From Frank Sinatra to The Cure – Tony Starlight and his band moves between the genres flawlessly. The show was a 10 – there was something for everyone!”

“We cannot say enough good things about our Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration at Tony Starlights held last weekend. Suzan and I wanted an event that would be entertaining, casual, with quality food and beverages, and most of all— not be boring. Tony and Spin Catering exceeded our expectations. Yes, we did a lot of planning, and built the basic slide show and selected the background music. But Tony went far beyond that, creating a special stage show of ‘60s and ‘70s music, complete with his own hilarious slides, that we will remember for years. Everything about it came off as a professional event worthy of Las Vegas. The backup band was right in the pocket, and our guests were delighted.
Most important, the catering was perfect, with cheery and helpful servers, just the right hors d’oeuvres for the cocktail hour, and a superb buffet of salmon and prime rib. We must say it all was four star restaurant quality. The servers and bartender were right there, taking care of every detail, and filling every request.
In sum, it was truly a once-in-fifty-years event.”
-Rick and Suzan Campbell
“We host a holiday party each year for all of our associates and it seems like every year it’s just another page out of the same playbook. This year we wanted to do something a little more “Portland” and also wanted it to be more of an “event”. The staff at Tony Starlight’s combined with the catering by Spin was all top-notch and our photographer couldn’t capture all the laughs, smiles and good times we had! A number of our 20+ year veteran associates commented, ‘This was the best Christmas party in my entire time with the company!'”
Private holiday parties can incorporate any theme and be customized for your event, with plated and buffet menu options, full bar and great entertainment. In addition to our regular Christmas show, Tony has customized the experience for clients, including a Hawaiian Christmas, an Ugly Sweater Pageant and even non Christmas themes like Mad Men, James Bond Costume Party, Prom Night 1979, or a Night At The Copacabana.
We’ve all sat through boring entertainment that stuck to the same old script with low energy and unprofessional execution. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN. Tony’s shows are high energy and interactive. His professionalism and comedic talent will delight your group.
The menu will be carefully prepared and artfully presented. John Lenyo, VP & GM of Mentor Graphics remarked “The steak was good. I don’t always expect that at a banquet.” Thank you, John. That meant a great deal for us to hear, but that is what we expect from every event.
