Overview

The UNC Charlotte Jazz Ensemble comes uptown to present a night of swinging Sinatra tunes with guest vocalist John Love. From classy to sassy, songs like “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Nice N Easy,” “My Way,” and “The Lady is a Tramp” will bring cabaret flair to the Booth Playhouse.

A lifelong admirer and student of all things Sinatra, John Love has been performing Frank’s tunes since age ten in 1970. As a Sinatraphile he intends to honor, not impersonate “Ol’ Blue Eyes.” While he sings with undeniable voice and manner similarities, remember there is only one Frank! Performing with great bands and arrangements, Mr. Love has raised considerable contributions for various charities and community causes in North Carolina. Mr. Love performs frequently with The Doug Burns Big Band, a Charlotte based 20-piece band. Their most recent collaborative recording, Love Trumps Hate, is available on all streaming services. With each new generation, one thing remains the same: it’s easy to fall in love with this music!
