Dave DeLuca Presents Perfectly Frank
Sunday, April 8th     
2:00 p.m.     
Come fly away with Dave DeLuca as he pays tribute to Frank Sinatra!
During his lifetime, Ol' Blue Eyes defined the Great American Songbook for decades with verve and panache

Long acclaimed as the world's greatest performer of popular music, Sinatra is the artist who set the standard for all others to follow.  Sinatra was, of course, more than a singer - he was an actor, recording artist, cabaret and concert star, radio and television personality, and, on occasion, producer, director, and conductor.

"Perfectly Frank" celebrates the man and his music as well as the great composers, lyricists, and musical arrangers who put their indelible stamp on an incredible period in American musical history.
