When they wanted a singer worthy of Mrs. Frank Sinatra, they insisted on someone who naturally mirrored the sound and essence of her late husband. For Barbara Sinatra, there was only one option: Dave Halston.
Halston's brilliant Tribute to Sinatra and his audacious Rat Pack shows are top-rated in the nation! Not only has Dave delivered command performances for Mrs. Sinatra, he has also entertained Jeanne Martin (Dean's widow) and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton.
Dave's shows are exciting and unforgettable. More than an “impersonation”, Dave delivers a stunning “interpretation” of that familiar style and swagger. The resemblance is so remarkable that some insist he's lip-syncing.
Whether you hire I Love Sinatra! or another Big Band for your Chicago event, we strongly recommend that all communication be kept on the Gig Salad booking platform as you book your Big Band. When you do, we’re able to offer numerous benefits that we cannot guarantee if you take communication or deposit payment off the Gig Salad website. Our booking system is easy to use and handles secure deposit payments from you to the Chicago Big Band of your choice.
Be sure that the quote/agreement your Big Band sends you outlines performance fees, travel fees, extras, arrival and departure times, cancellation policy, insurance information and other applicable details.

Michael was truly wonderful. He accommodated all of our special requests and customized an evening of music that suited all of my family for our wedding. As a professional musician in NYC myself, he exceeded my expectations. Many of my wedding guests were also professional musicians and they raved about the talent of Michael. He customized a night of music that included a live 12 piece orchestra and transported all of us to the Frank Sinatra Era from the first down beat. His voice and remarkable stage presence treated all of us to a magical experience of a true performer of yesteryear! Thank you Michael for sharing your gifts with us!

Absolutely amazing! Better than expected! He was a fabulous performer and wonderful person. We would definitely recommend him as well as book him again. He was extremely easy to work with and honored our requests if he could. We were very honored to have him as our entertainment for our Uncorking A Cure wine tasting benefit for cystic fibrosis. People are still talking about how good he was! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Outstanding! We hired Michael to come and perform at our new home to celebrate our recent wedding. Although we weren't quite prepared for how amazing Michael actually IS! We were getting ready for the evening and heard Michael practicing in our sitting room. We thought certainly it must have been a Frank Sinatra CD that has was rehearing to, however it was HIM singing. My husband and I were floored. We will definitely have him back to our home to perform again. Our guests loved him so much that they paid to have him stay and sing a few more songs. Class act all the way. Professional, kind and truly talented. Thank you Michael.

Michael performed a Sinatra tribute at my wedding and his performance was nothing short of sensational!! His show was truly one of the pinnacle moments in our wedding and we have gotten rave reviews from our guests as to how outstanding his rendition of Frank Sinatra was. His voice is superb, his body language and posture are so similar to Frank Sinatra that it was as if "Ole Blue Eyes" had been resurrected. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a unique form of entertainment for their party...especially if you are a Sinatra fan. This is something that dozens of my guests will never forget...AAAAA++++++++ worth every penny!!!!
