If you missed Sinatra with Count Basie in their legendary appearance at the Las Vegas Sands Hotel in 1966, here is your chance to see it again with Swingin' At The Sands: A Sinatra Tribute.

Jim Kerl's Swing Sixties band and Joey Jewell take you back to the heyday of Las Vegas and the reigning king of the strip, Frank Sinatra, in a 2 o'clock matinee Sunday at the Auburn Avenue Theater.

Jewell is recognized as a wonderful vocal stylist and entertainer in the tradition of the great shows of the Rat-Pack era. Swing Session plays the music of the Count Basie Orchestra as originally arranged by Quincy Jones, setting the stage for an unforgettable afternoon of swinging big band music.
