October 31st, 2013 – – Oranjestad, Aruba – – The first (1st) edition of the Aruba Sinatra Senior Citizen Show was a great success.

Presentation

A beautiful PowerPoint Presentation was being showed with logos from Sponsors and photo’s from Skylines, Fred de Jong, Frank Sinatra and other performers from Sinatra’s life and times.

Ambience

The audience was clapping and singing along with some of the songs, which can never be left out. During the less famous songs the audience was listening breathless and you could hear a pin drop. Fred de Jong didn’t stay on the podium only, but also walked between the audience while performing the songs. Fred captured Frank beautifully and sang a very wonderful repertoire of his songs.
