Songs of Sinatra take the stage Jan. 24 at the HFAC

The Hamilton Fine Arts Center continues its performing arts season Jan. 24 with the songs and sounds of Frank Sinatra. “The Sinatra Tradition” starring Ed Franks will bring the songs of Frank Sinatra alive, complete with a 17-piece band. The “Sinatra Tradition” is a tribute not only to the legendary singer’s voice, but something else that sets Sinatra apart – class. Celebrate the legend Jan. 24 beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors (55+) and $8 for students.

Other upcoming events at the Hamilton Fine Arts Center include:

Light Up: A Tribute to Styx – Feb. 15
Styx was one of the biggest album-rock bands of the late ‘70s, producing monster hits with “Babe,” “Lady,” “Come Sail Away,” “Too Much Time on My Hands” and “Don’t Let It End.” Light Up is a Milwaukee-based group of musicians faithfully recreating the Styx catalogue from the 1970s through the ‘80s. Lead singer Bobby Rouse’s uncanny similarity to Dennis DeYoung’s signature voice provides a foundation for the band to build on. Light Up’s incredible sound and phenomenal light show create the “Grand Illusion” of a live Styx concert experience on Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m.. Reserved seating is $18. General seating is $12.

Comedy Sportz – March 8
Comedy Sportz is competitive improv – two teams doing faced-paced improvisational comedy games and scenes based on audience suggestions and participations. The audience provides the suggestions, the referee keeps everyone in line. This show is appropriate for all ages, and the games begin at 7 p.m. on March 5. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Children 5-11 years are only $5.

University of Wisconsin Varsity Band – April 8
The famous Badger band will perform April 8 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors (55+) and $8 for students.
