Description:  Ron Ramsay & Samantha Talora - “The Chairman: Songs of Sinatra”





PITTSFIELD, MA - NYC Cabaret singer & pianist Ron Ramsay and vocalist Samantha Talora, have set their sights on the songbook spanning the career of Frank Sinatra, “The Chairman of the Board”, for their debut performance at Mr. Finn’s Cabaret Space, in Pittsfield on Saturday, October 17th, at 7:30pm.

This dynamic duo share a six octave vocal range that croons and sways with the melodies from Sinatra’s 50+ year career as an American singer, actor, director, and producer.  Ramsay & Talora weave their way through the worlds of Broadway, classic standards and popular/contemporary music as explored by Sinatra on stage and screen.

With many nicknames, including The Voice, King of Crooners, Ol' Blue Eyes to name but a few, Sinatra acquired the nickname "Chairman of the Board" after founding Reprise Records in 1961.  Ron & Samantha present “The Chairman: Songs of Sinatra” as an homage to his illustrious career and the songs that we’ve come to know and love by such notable composers as Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer and The Carpenters.

The pair will be joined again by Michael Gillespie on woodwinds and Courtney Clark on violin.  Mr. Finn’s Cabaret Space is located at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center -          36 Linden St.  Tickets are $30.00.  Show begins at 7:30pm.  A full Bar is available. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Box Office at Mr. Finn’s Cabaret: 413-236-8888.
