About Event

Most fans of American jazz and pop vocalists would agree that Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra were the undisputed champs of their era. In 1959 Frank Sinatra said this of Ella Fitzgerald, “She is the only performer with whom I’ve ever worked who made me nervous. Because I try to work up to what she does. You know, try to pull myself up to that height, because I believe she is the greatest popular singer in the world, barring none—male or female.” The feeling was mutual, and they duetted on several high-profile occasions. Fitzgerald adored Sinatra, deeply respected his talent and, given her natural humility, would never have claimed superiority.

During this special evening of entertainment, we honor the legacy of two of the most iconic performers to ever share the gift of music. Songs like Lady is a Tramp, A Tisket a Tasket, Paper Moon, I’m Beginning to See the Light, Mack the Knife, My Way, Strangers in the Night, among others shaped the genre of jazz and elevated jazz to new heights.

With two PS UNDERGROUND regulars, Keisha D and Tod Macofsky, we could not think of a more perfect duo to bring to life the music of these most wonderful and lovable performers. Not as an impersonation, but as a tribute with their own spin on these classic tunes. Accompanied by a four-piece band, Keisha and Tod will bring the music to life as Chef Dave will bring his talents to bear with a secret 4 course menu inspired by the music emanating from the stage. Free-flowing cocktails, beer, wine and specialty drinks and a few surprises are also included along this musical journey.
