“Simply Sinatra” And His Big Band

RCCA welcomes “Simply Sinatra”, featuring Steve Lippia and his big band. With a 10 piece hot driving band behind him, Steve moves from crisp popping swing tunes to ballads and many of Sinatra’s greatest hits. Imagine a young Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr. and Bobby Darin rolled into one incredible vocalist. Steve’s youthful energetic talent and powerful show creates a perfect blend of “classic” with “today”. His show introduces a new generation to this timeless music, while appealing to long time listeners. Recently in Las Vegas and Atlanta SRO, audiences lined up for more than two hours before show time to vie for seating. This is one concert you DO NOT want to miss!
