Hardly any other city in the world polarises like this one and is associated with glitter, glamour, money and of course Frank Sinatra. Inspired by the old lifestyle and based on the idea of forming a modern Rat Pack to wrap pop hits in a cool swing garb, the band Vintage Vegas was formed at the beginning of 2013, consisting of three experienced thoroughbred musicians.
On the one hand, there is the smart Italian singer Giovanni Zarrella, who can look back on almost 5 million sold records and carries the same love for swing in his heart as his Italian heroes Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
Then there is Tom Marks, who, as a trained pianist & singer, has also been composing and producing for other artists for years. The charming Pole has already had numerous gigs all over Europe and not only acts as a singer with Vintage Vegas, but also as a producer.
The band is completed by Inan Lima, the likeable Brazilian, who is not only a passionate singer and percussionist, but has also performed on stage with greats like Joe Cocker, Zucchero, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
The cross-over concept of Vintage Vegas impresses with its unique arrangements and a specially assembled 18-piece big band consisting of musicians from the SWR and WDR big bands. With cover songs like „Only Man In The World“, „Hangover“, „Einmal Um Die Welt“ or „Auf Uns“ as well as their own compositions „Here I Am“, „For Once In My Life“ and „Der Beste Mann“, not only typical swing fans but also friends of good pop music feel addressed.
Vintage Vegas will be for swing what „Dick Brave“ is for rockabilly and „IL Divo“ for classical music.
