Starlight Lounge 2016


Starlight Lounge

A cast of 9 outstanding singers backed up by a 17 piece big band.

Starlight Lounge is built on the music of legendary lyricist Johnny Mercer. His collaborations with a huge variety of composers have given us a wealth of timeless material.  Romantic ballads like "Skylark" and "Moon River",  fun songs like "Accentuate the Positive" and "Save the Bones for Henry Jones" mixed with some up tempo big band classics like "Skyliner" and Big Noise from Winnetka"  make for a deeply satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable program.

Starlight Lounge is conceived, written and directed by Fran Rude, Ken Rogers is the musical director
