Music of Frank Sinatra&Bobby Darin by Jonathan Poretz: Rave review 3/28 Marin IJ

***** Marin IJ music critic calls show "DAZZLING" *****

Rave review by Marin IJ Music Critic, Thursday, March 28th issue of the IJ.  Catch Jonathan's interview by Jan Wahl on KRON 4 at 8:15am, Saturday, March 30th!

Sinatra and Darin.....the songs and music of these two giants, performed by the amazing voice of Jonathan Poretz and his mini-Basie orchestra!
Sex, Swagger and Swing: Sinatra and Darin in the concert that never was...
Highly talented, Jonathan, who regularly performs at The Razz Room in San Francisco, brings a very enjoyable concert to the North Bay. Surely, this will be one of the tops for North Bay concerts in 2013!
Close your eyes and you'll think Frank came down from heaven and is performing for us!

    I'm working with Jonathan for another, upcoming concert to benefit our Wounded Warrior Veterans.
    Jonathan is truly outstanding with his songs of Sinatra and Darin!

    Our first, major, Live Music Concerts - North Bay and very pleased that three other, well established meetup groups also attended and assisted with our major launch!
    I estimated approximately 28-30 total members from our group and other meetups.
    Two standing ovations for Jonathan... agree with Marin IJ review "Dazzling"?

    An optional, classy, all season, music note themed scarf that could be purchased online, under $10 and worn as a scarf, sash, belt, bandana, hat, or?.. this will let everyone easily identify our music meetup, Music Lovers, from the crowd. Also, we find talented musicians and singers giving us a surprise gift that they want to talk with us during breaks or after the performance!
    We welcome your suggestions, ideas.

    111 Music Lovers! Thanks! our 360 world of music..
    Your Co-Pilot, Blue Skies Music AirLines...we have 110 Pilots...please let us know your favorite, North Bay and surrounds, music "destinations" and "discoveries" for possibly scheduling this year!

    Great performance with so much quality music. I Did It My Way, New York New York were unforgettable. He sure has nice voice and good stories of seeing past performances. Thanks to Jake for a great job of organizing it!

    Audience said " The Best"!....and I'd agree....there was a strong connection with the audience really appreciating Jonathan's songs by Sinatra and Darin...and he and his band responded, taking it all to new heights!
