BWW Reviews: THE SINATRA CENTURY at 54 Below Celebrates 'Old Blue Eyes' with Swinging FlairBWW Reviews: THE SINATRA CENTURY at 54 Below Celebrates 'Old Blue Eyes' with Swinging Flair
by Alix Cohen - Jan 9, 2015

Frances Albert (Frank) Sinatra (1915-1998) was arguably one of the most important vocalists of 20th century.

'You beat the rush,' Producer/Writer/Host Scott Siegel quipped from a podium last night during the variety tribute show The Sinatra Century at 54 Below. (more...)
