The Frank Sinatra 100 performance did not disappoint musicians or the West Ranch High School Performing Arts Theater Audience during a nearly sold out show.
West Ranch High School’s 537 seat Performing Arts Theater was basically filled to capacity.
The attendees were treated to hit song after hit song. This 20 piece group – brain child of music director Bob Babko, and now under the professional leadership of Brian Leff, Director of Jazz Studies at West Ranch High School – performed one Sinatra classic after another with such tunes as Come Fly with Me, Our Love is Here to Stay, New York, New York, I get a Kick Out of You, and many more.
The audience was entertained by these pro-level musicians who brought the music to life with their solos and blended sounds.
Special renditions of many of the songs were sung by well-known local vocalist, Steve Lively. Accompanied by backup singers at times and even singing a duet with his talented daughter for one special tune, clearly added to the group’s impact. What a terrific afternoon!
GO Jazz Big Band is scheduled to perform Holiday Tunes in their own style at Vincenzo’s in Newhall on Monday, Dec. 14th, and will be doing another “Big” show this coming March at the West Ranch High School Performing Arts Theater.
