Shades of Sinatra

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. Often drawing on experiences from their own lives, its cast members celebrate the legend in their own ways; and in between songs and poignant stories, there is plenty of good-natured ribbing among the cast, creating that vintage, off-the-cuff Vegas show atmosphere associated with Ol’ Blue Eyes himself.

PRESS REVIEWS
“Lightning struck again this summer with the Sinatra-themed revue…”
Mike Weatherford, Las Vegas Review-Journal

“…Singing hit after hit and medleys filled with the songs you came to hear….The Man would have been proud of what these four fine entertainers have done.”
Norm Johnson, “It’s The Norm” – Las Vegas Entertainment Events

“…Each is an excellent vocalist who does justice to Sinatra’s music….a highly entertaining little show – well conceived, perceptive and intelligently assembled….”
Jerry Fink , The Las Vegas Sun

“We need to see more of this show after this four night run. The show has been selling out and I’m sure as the word spreads there will be a big demand for future shows”
Steve Tuminello, Las Vegas At Its Best

“…This is a very seasoned and very in-sync team… They clearly still enjoy working together and give the numbers all their worth. These folks can sing. If you want an hour and fifteen minutes of songs you know, sung with passion, this show will make you happy.”
Richard Lane, Vegas Chatter (in association with concierge.com)

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.

“Entertainment for Health” and “Laugh-a-Thon 2” Benefit @ South Point Showroom!

Shades of Sinatra will be performing THIS weekend at a very special musical-comedy benefit taking place at the South Point Hotel & Casino, located at 9777 South Las Vegas Blvd. The show will take place this Sunday, Sept. 23rd, at 2:00pm, with doors opening at 1:30 p.m.

Organized by the Lions HealthFirst Foundation, in cooperation with the South Point Hotel & Casino who donated the showroom, tickets are now on sale at the showroom Box office, with all seats one price, $25.00. Proceeds will go directly into the Foundation’s Ultrasound Health Screening program.

“Because of fund-raising activities such as this event, the ultrasound exams are free, or at a very low cost to patients who can afford to share in the cost,” James Bartel, president of the Foundation, said. “The exams pick up potentially serious medical problems, such as masses, cysts, tumors, and blockages. Our screenings give you a heads up on what’s going on inside your body.” Bartel added. “They’re painless, non-invasive and only take about 60 minutes.”

The event will include music and comedy, as well as meeting and mingling with a host of celebrities and some of Las Vegas’ most prominent medical doctors. Among the entertainers performing are: Rich Little, Gordie Brown, Leigh Zimmerman and her daughter, Cayleigh Capaldi, Lisa Smith, Shades of Sinatra, Marlon Multo, Peter Anthony, Fielding West, Bill Fayne, Genevieve, Michelle Rohl, and Kelly McDonald, who will perform and host the afternoon. Emmy Award winner, Gary Anderson, has assembled a super trio as backup for the entertainers: Billy T. on piano, Steve Flora, bass, and Ryan Rose on drums. In addition to the trio, Anderson will add three horns, and will present his famous “Lighthouse Jazz Tribute.”

For more information and to secure your tickets in advance, call the Lions Health First Foundation, 739-6393…or you can purchase tickets online HERE. Additional information on the Foundation and its ultrasound screening program can be found on the Internet at www.lionshealthfirst.org.
