Veteran singer honors unforgettable Nat King Cole
"Unforgettable"? "Mona Lisa"? "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer"?
Whether your favorite is one of those or another Cole hit, chances are, Sheldon Craig is going to sing it.
Craig is a Las Vegas entertainer who will perform a tribute concert to Nat "King" Cole on Saturday at Historic Everett Theatre.
Cole was the great jazz pianist and singer, known for his smooth baritone. He died of lung cancer in 1965, but his daughter, singer Natalie Cole, has contributed to his continued popularity with "Unforgettable," her tribute to her father.
Craig has a lengthy performance resume from touring with Broadway shows such as "Dreamgirls," playing Las Vegas, and headlining in nightclub shows in the United States, Europe and Asia.
Craig has also been a guest soloist with the Seattle Symphony, the Houston Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Tacoma Symphony and the Long Beach Philharmonic, according to his biography.
The audience will be in store for a personal concert experience as Craig enjoys performing cabaret and has done so in Los Angeles at the M-Bar, The Barre on Vermont and the Cinegrille at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, according to his biography.
The Purple Phoenix Orchestra will play for Craig's performance.
"The Unforgettable Nat King Cole" starts at 8 p.m. Saturday at Historic Everett Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave., Everett.
General admission is $18.50 and $13.50 for seniors and military. Call 425-258-6766 or go to www.etix.com.
