October 20, 2019

You’ll never get a chance to see Frank Sinatra, or even Frank Sinatra Jr., perform in concert, but some people say that Tony Sands is the next best thing. Atlantic City Reviews of the That’s Life Concert have praised Sands not only for his uncanny vocal re-creation of Sinatra, but for his mannerisms that help create the illusion that Ol’ Blues Eyes is back.

Sands will be performing such hits as That's Life, Come Fly With Me, Luck Be A Lady, My Way, New York New York, and many more. Sands will be accompanied by his Eight Piece Band. Don’t miss this one of a kind musical tribute to Frank Sinatra. It’s as if Frank walked off the screen and onto the stage
