WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jonathan Poretz, the Bay Area's favorite big-band crooner, returns for an all-new edition of When Vegas Was Vegas!, honoring the entertainment icons who transformed the Vegas desert heat into an oasis of cool. Backed by his ultra-swingin' mini-big band, Poretz once again re-creates the heyday of 1960s Las Vegas, bringing a Rat Pack vibe to the Feinstein's at the Nikko stage.
Poretz's authentic, big-band arrangements of everyone's favorite songs from the vast catalogues of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Bobby Darin, and Tony Bennett include such standards as "I've Got You Under My Skin," "I've Got the World on a String," "Ain't That a Kick in the Head," "Everybody Loves Somebody," "Beyond the Sea," "Mack the Knife," "Mr. Bojangles," "What Kind of Fool Am I," "My Way," and "New York, New York."
