To honor Sid Mark for his long and celebrated career, Parx Casino will host Sid Mark’s Sounds of Sinatra 63rd Anniversary Concert and Celebration on Sunday, Oct. 27.
Since 1956, Mark has entertained generations of radio listeners in Philadelphia and across America. He’s shared his love and appreciation for the music of Frank Sinatra. He has presented the music of Sinatra for more than six decades, hosting Friday with Frank, Sunday with Sinatra and the nationally syndicated Sounds of Sinatra programs.
Mark said, “I owe my years of success to the greatest ever performer of the American songbook, Frances Albert Sinatra. I truly love the man…and his music. And of course, I thank our listeners for their loyalty and support throughout the years, and for making this labor of love possible.”
The headline performers will be comedian Tom Dreesen and South Philadelphia native Bobby Rydell.
Dreesen opened Sinatra’s live concert performances around the country for more than 13 years.
Rydell will take the stage backed by the 20-piece City Rhythm Orchestra performing songs of the Great American Songbook and a special tribute singing the music of “Ol’ Blue Eyes.”
The event takes place at the Xcite Center at Parx Casino in Bensalem.
Doors open at 6 p.m. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale at parxcasino.com.
