When four young singers are killed in a car crash, they posthumously take the stage for one final gig in this goofy, 1950s nostalgia trip. Featuring the close harmonies of male quartets with such songs as “Moments To Remember,” “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing,” and “Three Coins In The Fountain,” this is a great trip down memory lane.

Michael Dutra is a Rhode Island native, since 2002 he has been performing his tribute to Frank Sinatra all over the United States, from Las Vegas, to Miami to Boston, in supper clubs, dinner theatre’s, performing arts centers and corporate events and private parties.

Michael has been hailed as one of the finest interpreters of the Sinatra sound in the world, as said by Boston Globe Columnist Wesley Morris “ his sound is velour to Sinatra’s velvet, you really can’t tell the difference” Ron Della Chiesa of WPLM Boston Radio and Sinatra Guru said “Michael literally channels Sinatra”
Most of Michael’s influence comes from his dad, “dad was always singing Sinatra songs throughout the house and I would remember the lyrics and join him from time to time, even at the early age of 7”.

Their legacy lives on

The “Buddy Holly” production brought the theater to its feet. It was absolutely amazing and outstanding. The songs, the styles, and the scenery transported us back to the 1950’s. We felt the beat and relived the memories of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper. Their legacy lives on. – Jane E.
