Salute to the Crooners
22nd October @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm€23 – €25
Enjoy the festive spirit with the spectacular A Christmas Salute to the Crooners, a show which sees Dave Lawlor, one of Ireland’s greatest singers pay tribute to the songs of Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Matt Monro, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Perry Como and Dean Martin. Witness the crooner classics come to life with Dave’s velvet voice accompanied by the fabulous portrayal of images of all the artists on a large circular screen.
With a career spanning over thirty years, Dave Lawlor was chosen by Linden Productions to front this visually stunning show. Only an entertainer of Lawlor’s exceptional calibre could pay homage – accurately, respectfully, and with the appropriate humility – to so many musical icons in one show.
Dave’s vibrant stage presence will bring the audience through the great crooner songbook and some of the best know hits of the twentieth century such as Born Free, New York, New York, Portrait of my Love, The Wonder of You, Sway, Please Release Me, Moon River, That’s Amore, and My Way.
With a penchant for sentiment, romance and charm, Dave will enthral in this visually stunning audio-visual show and take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, superbly enhanced by the rare images of the stars.
