PRLog - Jan. 23, 2012 - SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. -- BIG ARTS is Puttin’ on the Ritz for its upcoming Annual Benefit Monday, February 27, at 6:30 p.m. at BIG ARTS Center, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel, Florida. The benefit includes a special piano and vocal tribute by Steve Ross to the King of Debonair, Fred Astaire.
   
In a review published by "The London Times," Clive Davis writes of Ross, “… his timing is immaculate, his piano playing has all the grace of a Fred Astaire dance routine, and no one, with the possible exception of the much more flamboyant Michael Feinstein, possesses such an encyclopaedic knowledge of the vintage songbook. Ross was born to sing Puttin' on the Ritz; he played stylish games with the tempo, dragging it back and forth without once losing his balance.”
   
Ross will be joined onstage on second piano by Bruno Casolari.
   
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. in Boler Garden with fine fare catered by The Sanctuary Golf Club. Ross takes the stage with Casolari at 8 p.m., with champagne and dessert to follow in Boler Garden.
   
Tickets start at $150. Call BIG ARTS Marks Box Office at (239) 395-0900 for additional ticket offers. Black and white attire is requested.
