DALLAS - July 16, 2014 - PRLog -- When one expects Mrs. Frank Sinatra to show up at their party, it goes without saying the evening’s entertainment must be exceptional. And so it was for the private party planner who went in search of a Sinatra-like singer worthy of the lady who spent 22 years as the wife of “Ol Blue Eyes”. They needed someone who naturally mirrored the sound and essence of her late husband. After all, Barbara Sinatra wouldn't be easily impressed. An impersonator wouldn’t do. This vocalist had to be real. And he had to perform for a most discriminating audience.

After an exhaustive search for talent, the choice boiled down to one performer: Dave Halston.

These days, Halston's brilliant Tribute to Sinatra and his audacious Rat Pack shows are catching the attention of more than Mrs. Sinatra. Across the country, Dave is injecting new life into the Great American Songbook with an engaging tribute to Sinatra that seems to energize every audience he meets.  And occasionally, he meets a very impressive audience. Not only has he delivered a command performance for Mrs. Sinatra, he has also entertained Jeanne Martin (Mrs. Dean Martin), recording artist Michael Feinstein and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton.

Without a doubt, the attraction of Dave’s performance is contagious. While accolades from the older generation are almost a given, it is the younger generation that exhibits surprisingly strong enthusiasm. Arguably, contemporary artists, like Michael Buble, have re-opened doors and made a positive impact on young people and their tastes in music. But many will tell you, after seeing Dave Halston perform, they are overwhelmed by his confident vocal style that combines with an intangible element of charm.

Dave has another way of describing it:
“ I never think of myself as putting on a show. I’m not an actor. And one thing that studying Sinatra teaches me is to simply be myself - and for heaven’s sake, be passionate about the music!  I’m not up there to sell me. I’m selling the song. That’s how Frank did it. Musical honesty. And if people experience a little extra joy because of it, then I’ve succeeded.”

Dave’s popularity is also fueled by another timely phenomenon:  Next year is Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday.  According to Dave’s business manager, Liz Silverman,  his 2015 calendar is already briskly filling with fundraisers, weddings, casino nights and special events of all kinds for clients wanting to experience “Sinatra” during his centennial year.

Will the music ever disappear? If you ask Dave Halston, the answer is an emphatic no!  He says, “The world has a perpetual love affair with Frank and his music. We will continue dancing and romancing to the songs that are unmistakably the soundtracks to the most memorable moments of our lives.”
