ABOUT THE SHOW: Awarded the 2012 & 2014 Excellence in Entertainment Award for TRIBUTE SHOW OF THE YEAR, Shades of Sinatra is an original musical production celebrating the extensive music and career of the great Frank Sinatra. Featuring over 30 of Sinatra’s biggest hits, this show pays tribute to most of the signature Sinatra tunes one would expect, as well as several that may be new to casual fans. Its cast members create unique characters that celebrate him in their own ways, often drawing on experiences from their own lives; and in between songs and poignant stories, there is plenty of zany humor and good-natured ribbing among the cast, creating the vintage, off-the-cuff Vegas show atmosphere that is associated with Ol’ Blue Eyes himself.

See you there!!!

Six days after her outstanding performances at the San Gennaro Feast in May 2013, she suffered major heart problems that kept her hospitalized four months.

‘We are delighted to take part in such a heartfelt cause,’ said Judy Alberti, vice president of entertainer for Stations Casinos. ‘We truly honor and respect what Denise Clemente has added to the entertainment industry over the years. She is truly a professional and we feel the pain of her suffering and for her family.’

Clemente has been singing at virtually every major Las Vegas casino since she arrived in the 1970s and appeared on network television shows such as ‘The Tonight Show,’ ‘The Merv Griffin Show’ and ‘The Dinah Shore Show.’ Over the years, she has opened for many industry legends such as Liberace, Bill Cosby, Don Rickles, Buddy Hackett and David Brenner, all the while becoming a local favorite. Clemente also created a vocal school for Las Vegas children as well as a talent showcase that she hosted called Rising Stars.

On the program already are: singers Pia Zadora, Dondino, Tony Sacca, Rosanna Telford, Ronnie Rose, Frankie Scinta, Genevieve Dew, Shades of Sinatra; tribute artists Rob Garrett ‘ Neil Diamond, Donny Ray Evins ‘ Nat King Cole; and impressionists Rick Michel and Tom Stevens.

The Showbiz Society is a 501(c) 3 and all donations are tax deductible. Money raised will go to Clemente and her family to assist with medical bills.
