Not only do we enjoy hearing famous Italian-American singers, but knowledge and understanding of the contributions of Italians in America, to America, is one of our goals. Italian American singers have made a substantial contribution to the American Songbook- most notable was Francis Albert Sinatra, born in Hoboken, NJ.
No, we are not going to exhume Frank, but the next best thing here in Southern New Mexico is a local vocal artist - Al Chance,the founder of our club who is the only singer in Las Cruces whose repertoire includes Sinatra's greatest hits, at this time. This will be the third annual event.
Al will also perform songs by many other famous Italian Americans such as Dean Martin, Tony Bennet, Bobby Darin, in addition to Sinatra's other well known friends - Sammy Davis Jr., and Elvis. There will be 2 short films, memorabilia and literature on "Ol Blue Eyes."
This is an "Open To General Public" event, so first to come is first to get a seat. Reserving Members of this Meetup will have reserved and preferred seating.

We need 2 volunteers to help set up chairs @ 1:30 pm.
Members should request Seat Reservation leaflets from Maria when they arrive in the event they need to leave the room, but want to save a particular seat.
