"Sinatra at The Sands" is nothing short of a swingin' time trip back to the Las Vegas Strip. Jewell's performance is true to the incomparable phrasing and vocal texture of Frank Sinatra and evokes the swaggering spirit of Ol' Blue Eyes and Vegas in their heyday. And Jim Kerl's Swing Session big band has the energy and excitement to keep you going all night, wonderfully smooth and sophisticated arrangements, and the musical chops and passion to play it all.
The show is smart, funny, and a wonderful tribute to the lost art of livin' it up. You'll feel like you're in "The Big Room" at the Sands and life is good.
"Frank Sinatra fans, you're in luck. The Sinatra at the Sands show starring singer Joey Jewell in the role of Old Blue Eyes is a live re-creation of Sinatra's famous appearance with the Count Basie Orchestra at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas in 1966. Jim Kerl's Swing Session provides swinging, big-band backup for Jewell's warm, engaging tribute to Sinatra. Close your eyes and you'll feel transported back in time to the Rat Pack era."
