An Evening At The Copa: A Century Of Sinatra

It’s a tribute to the “Chairman of the Board,” Frank Sinatra, the Sands Copa Room’s most legendary entertainer. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., New York Times Editor’s Choice author Tom Santopietro will share Sinatra’s fascinating stories and Carnegie Hall headliner Tony DeSare will perform his memorable songs. Come at 6:30 p.m. to dance to Sinatra hits by the Las Vegas Downbeats, view the Sands photo exhibit in the Mayor’s Gallery and enjoy no-host cocktails. If you’d like, come dressed in vintage cocktail attire or enter the Sinatra look-alike contest. Take home your complimentary commemorative scrapbook, The Sands & The Copa Room. After the show, stop for a nightcap at the Junior League’s historic Morelli House at 861 E. Bridger Avenue.

Tickets: Free. Adults 21+. Limit two per person or email account. Available starting September 2. Visit to obtain your tickets.

This event is made possible by a grant from the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial. Nevada Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, provided partial funding of the commemorative scrapbook. This is the third presentation of the Junior League’s 2014 Copa Connection Program Series, a public history program of its historic mid-century Morelli House preservation project.
