It Was A Very Good Year: Sinatra, ’54


Frank Sinatra tribute artist Gary Thomas returns to Venus Cabaret for an encore performance after two unforgettable sold out nights in September, 2023. It Was A Very Good Year: Sinatra ’54 celebrates the 70th anniversary of the release of two seminal Frank Sinatra albums “Songs for Young Lovers” and “Swing Easy”. You’ll hear selections from these two albums along with swinging Sinatra classics. Special guest vocalist Caroline Nutley joins Thomas as Nancy Sinatra for a double Sinatra dose!

Frank Sinatra’s career took a nosedive in the late 1940s and early 50s and many considered him a has-been. The year is 1954 and Sinatra hasn’t released an album in 4 years. In January 1954, he releases the album “Songs for Young Lovers”, in March he wins the Academy Award for his performance in “From Here to Eternity”, and in August, he releases the album “Swing Easy”, setting the stage for one of the most remarkable comebacks for an entertainer in the 20th century.
