Martinis and Sinatra Dan Ferris


Sinatra. The name is synonymous with the Great American Songbook, but it evokes so much more. As a 20th century icon, for tens of millions of people Sinatra represents the good life. Martinis & Sinatra captures the esprit de corps of that bygone era and re-presents it for today’s audience; for people who work hard and play hard, and who appreciate and enjoy great food, live entertainment, and cocktail hours.

What is Martinis & Sinatra? To best explain what it is, it is perhaps best to start with what it is not: Martinis & Sinatra is not a Sinatra act or ‘schtick’ (can you think of anything less Sinatra-cool than an impersonator wearing a hat and trench coat on stage?). Led by vocalist Dan Ferris, and backed by some of the best musicians in Chicago, Martinis & Sinatra performs the music of Sinatra-era composers—the artists that provided the musical soundtrack for midcentury America: Cole Porter, the Gershwins, Sammy Cahn, Rogers & Hart, Michel Legrand, Antonio Carlos Jobim and many more.

The music performed by Martinis & Sinatra provides an upscale and exciting atmosphere for clubs, corporate receptions, trade shows, weddings, events, and cocktail and holiday parties. Martinis & Sinatra will have you and your guests listening, mingling, dancing, drinking, networking, and just plain having fun!


Dan Ferris may be hired to perform at a variety of events, including clubs, corporate and private parties, festivals, weddings, and any other occasion where the right live music will add energy, elegance and ambiance to the atmosphere. The size of the band can range from a simple piano/vocal duo to a big band.
