The Concert Style Show:
"James Anthony as The Last Torch Singer", consists of a uniquely fantastic selection of Torch Songs, Romantic Ballads, Broadway Songs and unmistakable swingin' hits made famous by Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Stephen Sondheim, Neal Diamond and more. The performance includes an intimate setting such as Supper Clubs or Theatre Venues and Casino Showrooms. During the Christmas Holidays, James performs an arrangement of songs in the spirit of Christmas, including his acclaimed performance of, "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch" sung in the original key of G.
There are different sized events that can combine a music concert show with a cast of dancers/stage actors and set design. The music theme can be a music concert, or a movie esque atmosphere. Larger production events require rehearsals and will include key personnel for management of the show, set design, dancers, and technicians to have a successful event.
The shows may be sized and presented with a pianist accompaniment or a band that's appropriate for the venue size which may include a traditional trio or quartet, 7-9 piece little big band, 17-18 piece swing band, 26 piece swing band with strings or even a 41 piece classical orchestra for theatrical events. James is a kind and humble man that loves to laugh and have fun. James' warm melodic voice will bring out the emotional and dynamic perspective to the songs he performs and I know he will touch your heart and emotions as he has of so many in attendance of his shows.
