Easton becomes Vegas for one evening as Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Elvis and more appear on stage at the Avalon Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 20, when singing impressionist Bryan Clark performs “Sinatra 2 Soul,” a concert to benefit Talbot Mentors. Guests will relive a Las Vegas evening of hits by legendary artists while enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
Clark tours the mid-Atlantic region and nationally with a “Rat Pack” review as Sammy Davis, Jr. Citing inspiration from Sam Cooke, Frank Sinatra and other greats, along with gospel and soul, he shares his passion for keeping this musical tradition alive by recreating the classic Vegas-style of entertainment.
“I don’t try to impersonate them,” Clark says of the legends he salutes on stage, “but I try to ‘extract’ them…because I thought they were so classy.”
Clark engages audiences with a dynamic vocal range, as well as a few smooth dance moves, perfected in a career spanning more than thirty years. Videos of his performances can be seen on YouTube or at his website, BryanClarkSings.com.
Seating is limited and tickets are expected to sell out quickly for this one-night-only show. “Buy your tickets soon so you won’t miss this opportunity to see a world-class performer at an event that will be the talk of the town of Easton,” said Talbot Mentors Executive Director Natalie Costanzo, encouraging the community to come out for some great entertainment in support of the children of Talbot County.
