Sean Reilly and the Sinatra Centennial Orchestra under the direction of pianist David Zipse will perform at the Lazaretto Ballroom in Essington on Friday, Apr. 5.

Vocalist Sean Reilly will present “the tales behind the tunes” made legendary by singer Frank Sinatra.

“We all know the songs, but do you know the backstories of those great tunes?” said Reilly. “A song is just a song until it gets into Sinatra’s orbit, then it becomes a story.”

Musical director Zipse has extended some 20 Sinatra classic charts so people can dance longer. “Most songs are under 3 minutes,” said Zipse. “I’ve added band solo’s to extend those great songs so you dance longer to them.”

The Lazaretto Ballroom is located at 99 Wanamaker Avenue in Essington. For information, contact Michael Capozzoli at 484-494-5060, visit the ballroom’s Facebook page at
