East Shore LIVE: Dream Lovers
DREAM LOVERS features music recorded and performed by Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra and The McGuire Sisters, with songs made popular during the 1950s-1960s. Darin & Sinatra were two of the most prolific male vocalists of the era. Sinatra is still considered the quintessential male singer of all time, with hits like ALL THE WAY, NIGHT AND DAY, FIVE MINUTES MORE and COME FLY WITH ME.
Darins hits include MACK THE KNIFE and BEYOND THE SEA, but he was also a successful songwriter, penning such favorites as DREAM LOVER and SPLISH SPLASH! The McGuire Sisters were the most popular girl-group of the 50s with a very unique and recognizable blend of barbershop harmonies and jazz stylings. Their most popular recordings include SINCERELY, SUGARTIME, JUST BECAUSE and SOMETHINGS GOTTA GIVE. All of the songs listed here, plus more both popular and rare will be included in DREAM LOVERS.
