Flynn will once again capture the magic of the great song stylists and swingingest cats in jazz as he celebrates the music of ‘Old school Giants’, Sinatra, Dean Martin & Bobby Darin with his ever popular seven-piece band. This is a very special musical treat for lovers of great music and entertainment.

“We had the opportunity to jam together at one very fun show…his tenacity, and sheer energy and excitement paid off big for James, as the whole ship fell in love with him in that moment. He’s that good! A seasoned live performer for sure, when he is on stage he communicates on such a different level…it’s inspiring”
