Sinatra By Starlight

Join us on Veteran's Day at the Tony Starlight Showroom as we again hook up with Tony Starlight for a night of Sinatra tunes. From Tony's site:  "Tony sings Sinatra with the VanPort Big Band, with a special salute to veterans. Either way, this show will be swingin’ time! We’ll play such favorites as “The Lady Is A Tramp”, “New York, New York” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”. Add an intimate saloon song or two like “Angel Eyes” or “One For My Baby” and we’ll have a ring-a-ding-ding time!"
