Christmas with Sinatra brings the hits, carols and more from ol’ Blue Eyes

Dane Warren stars in tribute show to iconic entertainer Dec. 13

Christmas music and Frank Sinatra go together like a warm fire and eggnog; it’s part of many Christmas traditions.

UK-based Renee James Productions brings this melodious mix to the Alix Goolden Hall with its premiere of Christmas with Sinatra. The Dec. 13 event features an award-winning production team and is the first stop on a three-city visit to Vancouver Island.

Dane Warren stars as the legendary singer; a self-admitted “obsessed” fan, live albums such as Sinatra Live at the Sands inspired Warren’s longtime love of the crooner’s music. Christmas with Sinatra is an addition to veteran writer and producer Anthony JamesLegends Concert Series. The decade long series includes classic tribute acts such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Nat King Cole, among others.

Leading the band behind Warren is Vancouver-born Rick Kilburn. A 45-year career as a jazz bassist has taken him from the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver all the way to the Kennedy Centre in the U.S. capital.

Christmas with Sinatra will feature the singer’s timeless hits, carols and jazz standards, all ripe for warming the soul this Christmas season.

Tickets range from $15-55, with a 15-per-cent discount available for groups of 10 or more. For more information, visit ticketfly.com/.
