Jazz Under the Stars-Jim Kerl Orchestra
"Sinatra at The Sands" is nothing short of a swingin' time trip back to the Las Vegas Strip. Joey Jewell's performance is true to the incomparable phrasing and vocal texture of Frank Sinatra and evokes the swaggering spirit of Ol' Blue Eyes and Vegas in their heyday. And Jim Kerl's Swingin’ Sixties band has the energy and excitement to keep you going all night, wonderfully smooth and sophisticated arrangements, and the musical chops and passion to play it all. The show is smart, funny, and a wonderful tribute to the lost art of livin' it up. You'll feel like you're in "The Big Room" at the Sands and life is good.
