Tom Postilio & Mickey Conlon Host: Sinatra 100 Holiday Spectacular!

Here’s some celebrity news: New York personalities, style icons and real estate ‘superbrokers’ Tom Postilio & Mickey Conlon hosted their annual holiday spectacular on Tuesday, Dec. 8. The evening honored Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday. The Sinatra 100 Holiday Spectacular is the first among many celebrations taking place across the country honoring Frank’s 100th.

The evening was dedicated to raising awareness for the Great American Songbook Foundation, a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire and educate by celebrating the Great American Songbook. Tom Postilio serves on the Board of Directors, a national group of dedicated volunteers who work to protect, preserve and promote “America’s Music.” Tom & Mickey are self-proclaimed Sinatra enthusiasts and therefore chose to honor his life and music in an evening completely dedicated to his legacy, in the style in which Frank lived his life.

The evening featured:

  • Tom & Mickey took the stage to perform classic Sinatra standards along with the 16-piece Sinatra 100 Orchestra.
  • Special guest Michael Feinstein, American singer, pianist, and music revivalist performed as well.
  • The evening raised awareness for Michael Feinstein’s Great American Songbook Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the music of the Great American Songbook, the body of work that Sinatra raised to a new art form. Tom & Mickey presented Michael Feinstein with a check for $5,000 at the event for the cause.
  • A Sinatra memorabilia gallery was set up so attendees could see first-hand a pair of snowshoes that Sammy Davis, Jr. gave to Frank Sinatra when he purchased his first home in Palm Springs, cufflinks that were hand-painted by the legendary crooner, the first drawing done of Sinatra by Al Hirschfeld (signed by Hirschfeld), and a lithograph of Sinatra’s “Desert,” number 12 of 100, signed by Sinatra, which he had made as gifts exclusively for friends and family.
