0 Celebrate Christmas . . . . Sinatra Style! at The Van Dyck (Sat, Dec 27th, 2014 • Schenectady, NY)

Join The Joey Thomas Big Band at The Van Dyck for dinner and a show as we celebrate Christmas Sinatra Style featuring vocalist Bob Father!

Suggested Seating for Dinner is 6:30 PM  *

Show:    8:00 PM

* be sure to make your reservations in advance!

The Sinatra songbook from its beginning in the swing era of the 1930’s to the definitive recordings of the “sing” era of the 40’s and 50’s are representative of Frank Sinatra’s impact on American Culture, and despite changing record formats, Sinatra continually made his mark singing and promoting the American popular song throughout a career that spanned 60 years.

With dinner and a show, The Joey Thomas Big Band will have you humming Sinatra standards including “The Christmas Waltz,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” and “White Christmas” long after the evening is over!

A perfect Christmas gift for grandparents, parents  .  .  .                                                                    or any American Songbook lover
