“Sinatra Sounds, Big Band Style”
On Father’s Day weekend in June, the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center in Poughkeepsie will be the venue for a swinging “Sinatra Sounds, Big Band Style” show presented by The Big Band Sound along with our five vocalists and swing dance performers, and it will benefit the Sparrow’s Nest local charity in a show spotlighting the music of Frank Sinatra and his friends. Sinatra started off singing with the big bands of Harry James and Tommy Dorsey and he then went on to his spectacular solo career where he was often backed by other famous big bands. “Sinatra Sounds, Big Band Style” will highlight the best of the tunes in the Great American Songbook that Frank Sinatra and his friends brought into our lives, all in the most exciting setting of a live big band. Performances are Friday, June 16th at 8 p.m., Saturday, June 17th at 8 p.m. and Father’s Day Sunday, June 18th at 2 p.m. Click here for directions to the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center.
