Following two previous sold-out engagements, Jonathan Poretz returns to Feinstein's at the Nikko with his newest show, Sinatra, Dino, Darin & Davis – When Vegas Was VEGAS! Backed by the six-piece Fil Lorenz Orchestra, Poretz will recreate the heyday of a young Las Vegas, bringing a 60s vibe to the Feinstein's at the Nikko stage. His authentic, big band arrangements of everyone's favorite songs from the vast catalogs of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin and Sammy Davis, Jr, includes such celebrated songs as "I've Got You Under My Skin," "I've Got the World On a String," "Ain't That A Kick In The Head,” "Everybody Loves Somebody,""Beyond The Sea," "Mack The Knife," "Mr. Bojangles," "Candy Man," "My Way," New York, New York," and many more. This show is a swingin' big band tribute to the icons of a generation and the men who transformed a desert's heat into an oasis of cool.
Blending the swinging vocal stylings of Sinatra, Torme, Bennett and Darin, New York native Jonathan Poretz is equally comfortable performing his brand of great American jazz standards to audiences large and small. He recently returned from a 52-city tour of Germany as Frank Sinatra in Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra - The Original Las Vegas Tribute Show. He also toured American cities as Ol' Blue Eyes in The Rat Pack is Back.
Most recently, Poretz has been starring in his own highly acclaimed show, Sex, Swagger & Swing: Sinatra and Darin in the Concert That Never Was, which is touring performing arts centers throughout the Bay Area. He is also a regular vocalist with the Harold Jones Boss Men big band, led by legendary drummer Harold Jones, the beat behind Count Basie in the ‘70s and Sarah Vaughan in the ‘80s, and currently on tour with Tony Bennett.
