Carmine Mandea, the 2006 Excellence in Entertainment "Horizon Award" recipient by ECE, Inc. and co-star of the show, is noted for his excellent vocal styling of an older Sinatra, as well as playing tribute to Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr., and Vic Damone.

Mr. Mandea has organized an excellent show. Lisa Smith, formerly of New York City, has excellent range and performs an excellent version of Marylyn Monroe. Lary Liso, also from New York has a rich, deep resonance in his vocal styling and plays Dean Martin. Rayan Baker, the youngest member of the show, sings a tribute as a younger Sinatra.
