ADD:                    Is it live or is it memories?  Return to the glory days of Las Vegas and the Sands Hotel, where a trio of friends, who just happened to be the finest entertainers of their era, teamed up to play and perform.  This tribute to Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr., brings those days alive again through the vocal magic of Steve Apple, Gary Urgola and Lonnie Parlor, backed by the John Peace Orchestra.  From their top-rated shows in Las Vegas and Chicago, each of these performers is considered by most critics to be the best there is at portraying their period counterparts.  With more than 25 years’ combined experience, they captivate audiences with wit, humor, charm, and above all, vocal performances that are second to none.  The John Peace Orchestra includes John Peace, Richard Hemwall, Michael Flick, Pat Chartrand, Bob Smith and Scott Strecker.
