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!
The Oregonian sez…
The Tony Starlight Christmas Show: What combines showbiz razzmatazz, swingin’ arrangements, ring-a-ding-ding razzle-dazzle, and more holiday spirit than a buffet table piled high with figgy pudding? The Tony Starlight Christmas Show, in which Portland’s resident retro-swagger showman extraordinaire celebrates his favorite time of year. Steeped in Las Vegas-style energy and top-notch musical chops, the show combines jazzy renditions of “Winter Wonderland”; comedy routines; impressions of Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Neil Diamond and others; and tunes from holiday animated classics, including “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and Rankin-Bass specials.
