Flawless! Impeccable!

…”Performances by Dave Halston as Frank Sinatra and Suzanne Goulet as Liza Minnelli topped the charts with perfect interpretations during their recent concert at the Hot Springs Village Coronado Community Theatre.

Halston and Goulet not only brought a vast and entertaining repertoire but engaged the audience with personal touches only dedicated artistes share. 

Goulet didn’t waltz onstage, but entered through the audience singing and greeting her fans as would Minnelli. Dancing since she was 3, Goulet didn’t waste any time showing her expertise in replicating Minnelli’s gestures and choreography from “Cabaret,” but also singing with a wide vibrato for which Minnelli was also known.

If Frank Sinatra’s wife, Barbara, chose Dave Halston as the person who mirrored the sound of her late husband, then it was no surprise to the HSV audience as Halston began his first set, it was if though Ol’ Blue Eyes was crooning just for them. Even Halston’s interpretation of Sinatra’s off-the-cuff jokes were textbook. Halston’s relaxed Sinatra-style, was flawless.

Impeccable interpretation by the performers along with audience contribution rounded out a delightful, relaxing and thoroughly entertaining evening.”

Best We Ever Had!

…”This group was the best we have ever had! Dave is a known entity to us and we always enjoy his performance. The “Dean” and “Sammy” performers  were new to us, but they were incredible! “Dean” was hilarious, looked and sounded like Dean Martin and also threw in a little Elvis, Johnny Carson and Donald Trump. The Sammy Davis, Jr. tribute artist did a rendition of Mr. Bojangles that literally had some people choking back tears. They were collectively so much fun and had the audience engaged fully in the act. Please express to each of them my heartfelt thanks for making our Shreveport Club’s NYE such a memorable event!”

Beyond All Expectations!

… “Dave, as always, was phenomenal and such a gentleman! And the Rat Pack trio was over and beyond any of our expectations.  I mean just incredible and connected with the audience. I was worried I might have to have 911 on standby with the way a few of our Lady Residents swooned over the guys! Haha! All of them moved around the room and were engaged and truly stayed in character the whole time! Just WOW! Our Residents have all said this was the BEST event we’ve thrown. I’m sure they’ll be talking about this New Year’s Eve Party for the a looong time. Thank you so much for putting them together. We love, love, Dave and having him come. He is such a joy and so humble.  When we have guest performers join him it makes it even more special on those occasions. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing so much joy to our residents here at The Forum!”

A Wonderful Job!

… “Dave did a wonderful job; we received so many compliments on his act.  The majority of our past parties included a band of some sort, and dancing was always available.  No one seemed to miss that this year, which is a tribute to Dave.  Many thanks to our Casino Supplier for recommending Dave.  He was a great addition to our event!

Will Do Anything to Get Him Back!

… “ I want to start by saying that we have hosted some wonderful performances at the theatre, including some award-winning musicians, but I have never seen our patrons so excited about a show as they were over Dave Halston. This morning, I got three calls from people who couldn't make the show last night, but had already heard from friends who were there what they missed. They all wanted to know if he would come back so they could have a second chance.

Dave's performance was absolutely amazing!  He was gracious, kind, understanding and just as sweet as he could be about everything. He is a joy to work with, we were absolutely honored to have him here, and we will do anything we need to do to get him back!

I hope he will be happy to know that we have now raised nearly $15,000 for theatre repairs so far, and we now have a grant sponsor who will match those donations, and everything else that comes in in January, dollar for dollar. Patrons last night made almost $2,000 in donations to the theatre's repair fund, and I got two more $500 donations this morning in the wake of Dave's performance last night! That means, with the grant match, we now have almost half of what we need to rebuild and repair the roof on the theatre!

Dave has given us a wonderful gift - a huge kickstart on this funding campaign for repairs, and we are truly grateful and humbled by his kind spirit and warm generosity.”

Magical!

… “The surprise party was a huge success!  Dave and the band were fabulous.  I was concerned that with the fairly tight quarters and less than favorable acoustics in the upstairs area of the restaurant that the music might be overpowering for the guests.  Instead, it was just perfect.  The musical entertainment complemented the party rather than overpowering it.  Every positive comment I received from the guests included huge kudos for Frank, I mean Dave, and the band.  They helped make a special night for Carla even more magical.  The music was continuous, even during brief breaks that Dave or the different band members would take.  They were all in sync, ready to go when the guests arrived, entertained until the end of the party and very professional in addition to being immensely talented.  Dave is truly a great entertainer and very nice and accommodating person as well.  Thank you so much for making it all happen...and the bandstand fronts were fantastic!!!”

Thought It Was a CD Playing!

… “I just wanted to reiterate how great the event was! Dave and the band were amazing. We had students asking for Dave’s info so they can hire him for their wedding someday. Others noted how they heard the music and thought we were just blasting a Sinatra CD!! This event was a great turnout, with over 500 of our students coming out to enjoy the show and Casino games. I cannot express enough how great the band was to work with on Friday night, and how smooth it all went. I very much hope to work together again in the future :)”

Absolutely Amazing!

… “I just  wanted to reach out and say Thank You so much for a wonderfully successful Casino Night!  It was fabulous and our attendees had a blast.  Dave and the Band were absolutely amazing!  It was so nice that Dave worked with our “Elvis”, who is one of our own Regional Managers, to integrate him into the event, that gave it that extra special touch for our guests. Thank you so much for everything!  I hope we get to work together again.”
