"Shades of Sinatra" with Ray Wolf, Wolf Theater

We had such a wonderful time at our 100th show and after-party! Great friends and fans (many of whom have been there from the very beginning of Shades back in 2005!) and LOTS of champagne made for an incredible and FUN evening! You can view all the photos from the event (taken by Lisa’s husband, Ron Smith) in our Facebook album here: http://on.fb.me/sFFcAo

The Shades (Carmine, Lisa, Larry & Ryan) would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all those who came that night, to the entire tech crew (Rob, Chuck, Sammie & Claire), and of course to the Clarion Hotel & Wolf Theater for providing the food & champagne for the evening & making it so special for us.

Most importantly, we’d like to send out a personal and heartfelt thank you to Ray Wolf (owner of the Wolf Theater) for taking a chance on a relatively new show last February…you believed in us (and continue to believe in us) and we are SO GRATEFUL! Thank you for everything you and your beautiful wife, Jamie, do on a daily basis to help make our show a success. We love you!

Shades of Sinatra: Appearing every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday evening, 8:00pm, at the Clarion Hotel & Casino (formerly The Greek Isles).

Meet the New “Shades” of Sinatra — Our SUBS!

We are excited to introduce you to a few of our new SUBS!!! These are the first four subs to have officially been hired by the producer, and they will each have their “opening night” during the month of June. We are truly honored to have such great talent on board!

A quick reminder to anyone who auditioned last month: as was mentioned at the auditions, we will be needing several more subs in the future, and the producer has not finished hiring everyone yet…so you may still get a call. Please be patient…we’ve got LOTS of different projects in the works!

In the meantime, please meet our first four…OPENING SOON!

LOU DE MEIS (filling in for CARMINE) has worked as a singer/actor on both coasts, throughout his career. He worked primarily on the East Coast  and Canada, until 3 years ago when he moved to Las Vegas. He has appeared in many films and commercials and plied his craft in Musical and Legit Theater. His favorite roles include Billy Flynn in CHICAGO and the title role in DRACULA (other theatre credits include the roles of El Gallo in The Fantasticks, Herr Schultz in Cabaret, Henry II in The Lion in Winter and Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar). In the 90’s, he worked for an extended time with Barry Manilow and has performed in most of  Atlantic City’s casinos. In his spare time, Lou LOVES to play basketball and softball! He is tickled to death to be working in “Shades of Sinatra” with this extremely talented cast. You can find out more about Lou at his website: www.loudemeis.com

CRAIG CANTER (filling in for LARRY) is a Philadelphia/South Jersey native. He has always aspired to sing, and being the owner of a nightclub at age twenty-four gave him the opportunity! This led him to travel with Hollywood Superstars as a Neil Diamond and Engelbert Humperdinck tribute artist where he played casinos from Las Vegas to Atlantic City to Tunica, Mississippi. Craig has performed the National Anthem several times for South Jersey’s exclusive Polo Club, as well as the Philadelphia 76ers NBA team, and sang at the Republican convention in Philadelphia. Throughout the years, Craig has performed for and hosted various charity events, including the American Heart Association and Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS foundation), and has sung with numerous well-known celebrities such as heavyweight champ Smokin’ Joe Frazier and the Knockouts, The Skyliners, Dovells, Frankie Avalon, and Ben E. King. In the late 90’s, Craig even had his own radio and cable TV variety show where he sang and performed skits! Here in Las Vegas, Craig was one of the headliners in the “Rockin’ and Romancin’ Show” at Gold Coast Casino in which he did tributes to Neil Diamond, Engelbert Humperdink, The Everly Brothers, and the Mamas and the Papas. For the past few years, Craig has been the General Manager of a transportation company (LIMOUSINE & SHUTTLE BUS) and now makes his home at the Alan Waxler Group. Craig is very excited for the opportunity to return to the stage in “Shades of Sinatra.”

SANDRA HUNTSMAN (filling in for LISA) is a singer, actress and musical theatre performer. Singing is her true passion and she loves to sing many styles of music, from opera to musical theatre to rock and roll! Her stage credits include Emma in Jekyll & Hyde, Eliza in My Fair Lady, Miss Dorothy in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Amneris in Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA and Andrea in Once On This Island. Sandra performs frequently in cabarets, concerts and revues throughout the Las Vegas area.. She recently recorded for Jack Kent Tillar and is working on her own CD. In addition to all her performing, Sandra is a costume designer and creator/founder of Princess Celebrations, which provides high quality character entertainment. Sandra is married to award winning local theatrical director Steve Huntsman and they have four beautiful children! www.sandrahuntsman.com

JEFF CELENTANO (filling in for RYAN) started his musical career by playing keyboard in bar bands long before he was old enough to drink. Listening to his incredible Sinatra-style solo voice, you would never know he comes from a mostly rock and roll background, having shared the stage with classic artists such as America, The Little River Band, and occasionally  touring in the backing band for legendary founding member of The Beach Boys, Al Jardine. Currently Jeff can be seen performing in the Beach Boys tribute band, Good Vibrations, is a founding member of the popular indie pop band Tripsitter with whom he’s released two critically acclaimed albums, and also sings with the popular vocal jazz quartet Fifth Avenue!  As a solo piano performer, Jeff recently completed a contract with Carnival Cruise Lines as the featured Piano Bar Entertainer in “Billie’s Piano Bar” aboard the Carnival Legend during the Summer/Fall of 2009. In addition, Jeff was most recently the keyboardist and lead vocalist for comedian/impressionist/television star, Frank Caliendo for his long running show at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. www.jeffsounds.net

About Us!

Relive the music of the legendary FRANK SINATRA!

Shades of Sinatra (starring Carmine Mandia, Larry Liso, Lisa Smith & Ryan Baker) 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.

Shades of Sinatra: Appearing every Tuesday & Thursday evening, 8:00pm, at the Clarion Hotel & Casino (formerly The Greek Isles). Tickets can be purchased at the box office (305 Convention Center Drive. Las Vegas , NV 89109) or by calling 702-990-1524. Click HERE to view full calendar of appearances & shows!
