Come fly away with Dave DeLuca as he pays tribute to Frank Sinatra!

During his lifetime, Ol' Blue Eyes defined the Great American Songbook for decades with verve and panache.  Long acclaimed as the world's greatest performer of popular music, Sinatra is the artist who set the standard for all others to follow.  Sinatra was, of course, more than a singer - he was an actor, recording artist, cabaret and concert star, radio and television personality, and, on occasion, producer, director, and conductor.

"Perfectly Frank" celebrates the man and his music as well as the great composers, lyricists, and musical arrangers who put their indelible stamp on an incredible period in American musical history.



Dean Martin was one of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century. Dean was nicknamed the "King of Cool" for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assuredness, he and Jerry Lewis were partners in the internationally acclaimed comedy team Martin and Lewis; and he was a member of Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack as well as a star in concert and in recordings, motion pictures, and television.

In his one-man show "That's Amore" Dave DeLuca imitates Martin's relaxed, warbling crooning voice as he performs signature songs such as Memories Are Made of This, Everybody Loves Somebody, You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You, Sway, Volare, Ain't That a Kick in the Head, and That's Amore.




The Star-Spangled Songbook (also known as the Great American Composers Series Sampler) is a musical celebration of the great American composers and lyricists who together crafted a body of work that is uniquely American, from Tin Pan Alley to Broadway, from jazz standards to the songs that won the war.




"Great American Composers" is a series of musical programs which features timeless songs from the brilliant composers and lyricists whose body of work have become musical standards. Each one-hour program highlights a different composer.

Also available: a "sampler" program which presents a handful of songs from each of the Great American Composers.



The Wonderful Wizard of Song is a jukebox musical filled with the iconic and nostalgic hits of OZ composer Harold Arlen including That Old Black Magic, I’ve Got The World On A String, One For My Baby, Come Rain Or Come Shine, Stormy Weather, Blues In The Night, It’s Only A Paper Moon, Somewhere Over The Rainbow… and many others!

The show gives the audience a peek into the composer’s life as Dave DeLuca guides them through the musical vignettes traveling from The Cotton Club to the screens of Hollywood, to the Broadway stage and to the Land of Oz!



'S Wonderful: An Evening of Gershwin celebrates the elegant, unforgettable tunes composed by George Gershwin with lyrics by his brother Ira. In 1924 the brothers teamed up to write the music for their first Broadway hit "Lady, Be Good!"

Once the brothers joined together, their combined talents became one of the most influential forces in the history of American Musical Theatre. This musical tribute features some of the most enduring songs in the American musical canon, including Someone to Watch Over Me, I Got Rhythm, They Can't Take That Away from Me, Summertime, and 'S Wonderful.



Who walks away from $10 million? Who creates something beloved and beautiful that will eventually earn him well in excess of $10 million, and says he doesn't want the money? Irving Berlin, the composer of God Bless America, that's who! A legend before he turned thirty, Irving Berlin was one of the greatest songwriters in American history. Despite never having had any formal music training, the composer of God Bless America and White Christmas taught himself to play piano (on the black keys only!) and at the age of 23 wrote Alexander’s Ragtime Band, a song that sparked an international dance craze and propelled him to the top ranks of songwriting, resulting in no less than 25 number one hits (out of 1500 songs) in his 60-year career, including: Cheek To Cheek, Always, Blue Skies, I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm, How Deep Is The Ocean, and Puttin’ On The Ritz.

Another great American composer, Jerome Kern, concluded that "Irving Berlin has no place in American music - he IS American music."  And this musical tribute proves it!



The remarkable partnership of composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Lorenz Hart spanned twenty-four years, resulting in the scores for thirty stage musicals and nine films. While their songs are acknowledged as among the most sophisticated and witty of their time, they could also be stunning in their simplicity and directness.

Beguiled Again illuminates the astonishing breadth of their output with a musical menu offering selections from the incomparable Rodgers and Hart songbook, songs like Blue Moon, The Lady Is A Tramp, My Funny Valentine, My Heart Stood Still. and Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.




Who doesn't love a Cole Porter tune? I Get a Kick Out Of You, Night and Day, In The Still Of The Night, Too Darn Hot, I've Got You Under My Skin - songs like these have stood the test of time to enter the popular repertoire as standards of the American songbook. They evoke a bygone world of luxury, of Upper East Side apartments, cruise liners and decadent cocktail parties...And they continue to fascinate with their witty lyrics, poignant emotions and wonderful melodies.

Dave DeLuca’s musical tribute to Cole Porter brings to life this rare talent who penned the music and lyrics for such Broadway hits as Anything Goes, Kiss Me, Kate, Silk Stockings and Can-Can, plus countless movie musicals.




The Great American Songbook is full of familiar names: George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern. However, the name Harry Warren might not immediately ring a bell. While this gifted Hollywood composer’s name might have eluded the spotlight, his dozens of hits written in the golden age of the film musical certainly have not.

This show details Harry Warren’s musical genius through hits like Chattanooga Choo Choo,  42nd Street,  That’s Amore, Jeepers Creepers, You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby, and At Last.




Although he is best known as a lyricist, Johnny Mercer also composed music, co-founded Capitol Records, and was a popular singer who recorded his own songs as well as those written by others. From the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s, many of the songs Mercer wrote and performed were among the most popular hits of the time. The Johnny Mercer Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

He wrote the lyrics to more than fifteen hundred songs, including compositions for movies and Broadway shows. He received nineteen Academy Award nominations, and won four: "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe" (music by Harry Warren), "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening" (music by Hoagy Carmichael), and “Moon River” and “Days Of Wine And Roses” (music for both by Henry Mancini.)




The Great Italian-American Songbook is a musical celebration of the ethnic music brought to America by its Italian immigrants, and also the music composed in America by men and women of Italian ethnicity as well as the Italian-American singers who built their careers on these songs.

Featuring such songs as "That's Amore", "Ritorno a Surriento",  "O Sole Mio", and "Volare", the Great Italian-American Songbook is the perfect show to book for a Columbus Day celebration, or on a day commemorating an Italian patron saint or other important historical figure.




Travel back in time to the days when the Rat Pack ruled the night, in this one-man tribute to the swingin' sounds of the iconic Las Vegas trio: Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra.  

Songs include "That's Amore", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Girl From Ipanema" performed in the unique style of each singer.




"Remember Then" brings back the greatest radio hits of the late 1950s through the early 1970s, from several genres: doo wop, Motown, rock 'n' roll, British Invasion, bubblegum, classic soul and R&B.

Songs include In The Still Of The Night, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Earth Angel, Just My Imagination, Do You Want To Know A Secret, The Wanderer, Under The Boardwalk, Ain't To Proud To Beg, and many more!



Some of America's greatest stories are found in the classic country & western songs of the 1950s and 1960s. "The Legends of Country Music" is a barn-storming square dance through those two decades, featuring songs made famous by Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, George Jones, Jim Reeves, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Ferlin Husky and many more.




The Crooner is a musical tribute to the romantic songs made popular by male crooners such as Engelbert Humperdinck, Tony Bennett, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Julio Iglesias, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Mel Torme, Charles Aznavour, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Mathis, and Al Martino.

If love is in the air, chances are that The Crooner is close at hand...


Can you laugh and sing at the same time? That's the idea behind "Wooly Bully", a tribute to the best-loved novelty songs of the past century.

Songs include "Doggie In The Window", "Yakety Yak", "Mother-In-Law", "Alley Oop", "Witch Doctor", "Hello Muddah Hello Faddah" and many more.

"Winter Wonderland" is a feel-good family-oriented event filled with yuletide whimsy and winter wonder that celebrates the magic of the holiday seasons through songs such as "Let It Snow", "Baby It's Cold Outside", "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm", "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" as well as novelty songs like "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas" and "Dominick The Donkey."
