twist and spins that will be captivating.
For the distinguished and most sophisticated of the group and listeners there's the classic sounds of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank
Sinatra, Billy Eckstine, Toney Bennett , and Cole Porter with a hint of our touch to get them gracefully gliding across the dance floor and
staring into each others eyes.
