2015 Sinatra Bash

 

The One …The Only … The Voice … The Chairman of the Board, New Jersey’s Favorite Son, Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, …. Francis Albert Sinatra.

Join Us, December 4th at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ, as the non-profit organization Jazz Arts Project, once again presents an all-star cast with celebrity surprises, a gaggle of Sinatra tribute singers … and the acclaimed Red Bank Jazz Orchestra.

This is the original Sinatra celebration gala concert in New Jersey.  A production of the non-profit organization Jazz Arts Project, the Sinatra Birthday Bash takes place each year on or around Frank Sinatra’s birthday as a tribute performance to this American icon. The finest available saloon singers, crooners and chanteuses all selected specifically for this performance, along with special celebrity guests, will take the Count Basie Theatre stage backed by the professional 18-piece Red Bank Jazz Orchestra. The event is a musical celebration of the life and artistry of the one and only Frank Sinatra.

Under the musical direction of Joe Muccioli, who Jazzwise Magazine says works with “a maximum of authenticity,” the cast sings the great songs of the American Songbook and many of the tunes associated with Sinatra during his long career.

The Sinatra Birthday Bash is not a costume and wig show, but a sincere, respectful tribute in music and song to one of New Jersey’s favorite and most famous sons.  This show is a perennial favorite that fills the house with die-hard Sinatra fans who appreciate authentic, world-class live entertainment from a very talented cast and professional jazz orchestra in the true tradition of the Count Basie / Frank Sinatra collaborations of years past.

The Sinatra Centennial Birthday Bash is a gala event produced by Jazz Arts Project, a nonprofit (501)(c)3 organization, serving as an annual fundraiser for unique music educational programs for at-risk and underserved youth.

Save the date and join us to celebrate the music of Frank Sinatra!
