Hank Sinatra reaches back to the 1940’s and ’50s, for some of the greatest songs ever written. Hank has his roots in country, swing, lounge and pop, and he knows a good song transcends any genre.
In a typical set of Hank’s, you can hear songs like “Crazy,” “The Lady is a Tramp,” “Funny How Time Slips Away” and “Fly Me to the Moon.” These are classic tunes that everyone knows, and looks forward to hearing again.
“I don’t hear anyone doing this range of music today. I go from pop to country to swing to jazz to blues, and more. These songs and tunes work equally well in a quiet uptown dinner spot or at rowdy bar. Stripped of its labels, it’s all good music.”earing again.
Hank mines the best songs from artists such Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams and of course, Frank Sinatra. He delivers them in his own clean, smooth voice, and backs them with a solid beat that makes them swing.
“That’s the main thing, the swing beat,” Hank explains. “It always grabs me, and the audience gets it too. I love to look out and see all the heads bobbing and the toes tapping. Whether the tune is fast or slow, that steady bounce is where it’s at.”
