In Echoes of Sinatra, Steve Kazlauskas pays tribute to the legendary performer that is Frank Sinatra with stories and songs that bring back the golden era. Kazlauskas is recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Sinatra and his music. He has performed throughout the country; from east to west, and north to south. Developed with the Tony T. Orchestra, the show captures the emotion and the sound of this unique period where swing was king, with most of the original arrangements utilized to offer that classic big band sound. Members of the orchestra include artists who have performed on Broadway, TV, and on major record labels, and toured with international acts. Kazlauskas himself captures the sound, feel and expression of Sinatra with amazing accuracy while bringing his own unique interpretation to the music. With a vocal range that allows him to sing Frank’s songs in their original keys, he’s able to reach and sustain those high notes and croon softly on those signature low notes that were part of Sinatra’s distinctive singing style. The holiday twist of “A Crooner’s Holiday” adds to the evening those classics you want to hear at Christmas time like “White Christmas,” “The Christmas Song,” “Let It Snow and many more!
