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)
