UPCOMING: Dining and Dancing Extravaganza: The Sportsmen’s Lodge has something very special for the day after Valentine’s Day–a heart-filled musical extravaganza with dinner, dancing and a full bar. As deemed recently by MyDailyFind.com, “…SL is seriously ‘old school cool’ with a ‘new cool vibe.’” The Empire Room proudly presents the new monthly series The Johnny Holiday Program featuring The Dean Mora Orchestra.
In a recent blog, Johnny Holiday wrote, “Having been sort of a musical gadabout off and on for about 43 years, I certainly am delighted to be working in the Empire Room at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City on a monthly basis. For me, this new chapter for myself and our strolling players is indeed special and exciting.”
Johnny will be appearing in the Empire Room at Sportsmen’s Lodge Events Center and premiere the first of 11 performances starting on Feb. 15. It’s a retro 50s-style Big Band with amazing singers, dancers and other performances. See Dean Mora and his Orchestra along with the lovely Christine Nelson, the talented Adam Tunney, the Satin Dollz Pin Up Dancers and special guest star Toni Prima – daughter of the Las Vegas King & Queen, Louis Prima and Keely Smith.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer the Valley such an amazing night of dinner, dancing and classic entertainment,” declares Sportsmen’s Lodge Events Center’s General Manager Laurence Whiting.
Johnny Holiday has opened for such headliner legends as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Jerry Vale, Dick Haymes, Nancy Wilson, Johnnie Ray, Eddie Fisher, Don Cherry, John Cary, Tony Martin, Frankie Laine, Mel Torme and more.
Doors open at 7 pm. $20 for General Admission and dancing; $69 for dinner and dancing. Reservations recommended. Tickets: www.johnnyholiday.eventbrite.com or call 818-432-7502. Hurry, only a few tables remain for dinner!
