    On December 15, 1915 Francis Albert Sinatra was born in Hoboken, New Jersey. For our next performance we say "Happy 100th, Frank!" and pay musical homage to the artist whose voice, name and style left an indelible imprint on our country’s soul. Chuck Par-Due and his Octet presents this special tribute featuring authentic arrangements of classic hits by Sinatra. Chuck Par-Due is a veteran Big Band trumpet player and vocalist. During a career spanning over 45 years, Chuck has performed with many jazz greats, and also performed for three US Presidents. Chuck will share the history of, and perform many musical memories of the greatest singer of his generation. Sharing the stage with Chuck and his band will be his wife Cheryl Morris. Having sung with many of the great Big Bands, Cheryl is truly one of the last vocalists who sang with the “Original” Big Band leaders, including Orrin Tucker, Tex Beneke, Ray McKinley, and a ten year stint with Harry James and the Harry James Orchestra. Seating will be limited to 200 guests, so this marvelous event will sell out fast!
