The New Virginians Club May Luncheon

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Reservations Deadline –Wednesday, May 2 at Noon


Joe Sings Frank Sinatra

Our entertainment for May will not be a speaker, but a well-known local entertainer, Joe La Luna.  Joe, a longtime Richmond area resident, is frequently found entertaining at local restaurants and clubs, for large corporate events, at luncheons, birthday parties, and even at assisted living communities throughout Central Virginia.

Joe does not consider himself an impersonator.  "I don't think you can impersonate Sinatra", he says. "I don't try to imitate him. I just have a natural ability to do his music".  Joe says "When I am singing I feel I am Sinatra.  Sinatra's music is a catharsis for me."

Mr. La Luna grew up in an Italian family on Long Island, New York, listening to the legendary crooner.  He says he was drawn to that sort of music, even as a young boy.  His favorite Sinatra song??  That depends on what I am feeling--there is a song for every moment!

Please join us at the Downtown Hilton as Joe La Luna joins the New Virginians for the second time by request, entertaining us with all the songs we know and love.
