Jack Jones is featured this week in the Star Tribune Big Gigs as posted by the Jon Bream.
“Jack Jones’ name and songs belong to the 1960s when he was a regular on Ed Sullivan, Dick Cafvett and “Hullabaloo.” In the era of Beatles, Motown and Beach Boys, he had a slew of easy-listening pop hits, including “Wives and Lovers” and “The Impossible Dream.” And what baby boomer can forget Jones’ theme song for TV’s “The Love Boat”? In a review last year, the New York Times called Jones, 75, reinvigorated and a first-rate pop-jazz swinger. (7 p.m. Tue.-Wed., Dakota, $45-$65.) Bream”
Jack has also been receiving accolades from the New York Times for his October appearances in New York when he was featured (and pictured in the Times) as the special guest at a New York Cabaret Convention. “The room was suffused with the kind of macho nostalgia that the Sinatra name invokes.”
Jack Jones appears at the Dakota Oct 22nd and 23rd – check dakotacooks.com or call 332-332-5299.
