It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas!
Remember the classic holiday TV shows of your childhood, when entertainers like Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and others sang songs and spread the holiday cheer far and wide and you couldn’t help but feel the warmth and glow of the season? It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas brings back these uplifting holiday traditions and puts a fresh, comedic spin on them.
Last year, KGW stopped by to do a piece about It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas. Click here to see the video.
Tony has joined forces with Bo Ayars (arranger and conductor for Liberace) to put together a Vegas-style Christmas program like nothing else. No other show has swinging jazz like “Let It Snow,” comedy routines where Joe Friday arrests Frosty the Snowman, impressions of Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Jimmy Durante, Neil Diamond and others, duets with guest vocalist Barbara Ayars (backup singer with Bobby Vinton and Steve & Eydie) and the songs from such holiday specials as “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,” “Scrooge” and several of the Rankin/ Bass animated specials like “The Year Without A Santa Claus” and “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.” The show is both silly and sweet; always well-rehearsed, yet still spontaneous.
This series of shows in December sells out every year!
