Valentine’s With Sinatra & Martin at the Holly 2/14

29 Jan

RUSSO AND NOE PRESENT VALENTINE’S WITH SINATRA & MARTIN 2/14/2013 8-10pm

Russo and Noe are professional entertainers, not an impersonation act. Although comparisons are often made to the Rat Pack days of Las Vegas, they are based out of Atlanta, Ga. but perform all across the Southeast.
Performing in tuxedos with the trademark Manhattan glass in hand they really do take an audience back to those days. Just close your eyes and you could be at the Sands Hotel in 1962. They are easy and relaxed on stage, slightly ribald with their humor, and possess excellent voices remarkably suited to the swinging, big band era.
