"The Sinatra Show" Starring Griffanzo & Grewen, Piano, Trombone & Vocals

Piano magic from Robert Griffin A.K.A. Griffanzo - where Duke Ellington meets Tom Waits, Count Basie jumps Mose Allison, plus Dixieland, some Blues, and all your favorite standards, wow!  Former pianist of the Squirrel Nut Zippers and the ‘Round Midnight Trio.

Joining Griff is trombonist Danny Grewen, a transplanted San Franciscan who’s played the part of Sinatra in a “Rat Pack” show in SF that ran for 10 years. Griffanzo and Grewen have thrice staged their collaborative Sinatra show in Wilmington to great success, and Griff says, “I’ve played for many singers that have done Sinatra material (including myself), but he is the real deal (and the best trombonist I’ve heard!)” Sounds like a swell Saturday Night for Sinatra fans, like us!

So HEAD TO TAILS tonight and you just might be able to say, “I saw a man, he danced with his wife!” Come and dance with us, and BE the song!
