Sinatra by Starlight
2015 is the one hundredth anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, and to celebrate the Sinatra Centennial Tony Starlight sings the hits of Frank Sinatra. Bo Ayars (former conductor for Liberace, Elvis Presley and Barbra Streissand,) will conduct an All-Star Septet through orchestral arrangements like “All The Way”, “I Have Dreamed”, “Put Your Dreams Away” and so many others. In addition to swinging favorites such as “The Lady Is A Tramp”, “New York, New York”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, and “Summerwind”. Bossa Nova renditions of “Baubles, Bangles and Beads” and “Change Partners”. Intimate saloon songs like “Angel Eyes” and “Drinkin’ Again”. We also hope to introduce you to some real gems you may not have heard such as “You And Me (We Wanted It All)” and “Violets For Your Furs”.
Sinatra by Request – Featuring Tony Starlight and John Gilmore
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 and their interchange promises to make this a very entertaining evening. They will also take your requests, both when making your reservation and live, during the show.
