It was just so impressive! That’s my view as a first-time guest at the annual Celebrate Sinatra, a 1950s style nightclub party held last Saturday evening in Tampa at The Orlo. It was a wonderful evening of Big Band, Bossa Nova and Swingin’ ’60s tunes performed on two stages by Lisa Casalino, Andy Stefano, Bryan Hughes, Paul Phillips and Keith Scherer
The black-tie gala, which featured delicious food and drink, has been hosted by Ken Walters every year since Mr. Sinatra’s passing in 1998.
