‘The Magic of Sinatra’ at Franco’s Lounge

Who better to usher in a Vegas-style lounge in Castle Hills than “Frank Sinatra stylist” Paul Salos? Deemed “as smooth as velvet” by Sharon Osbourne, the Garland resident and America’s Got Talent finalist is among a handful of performers who’ve taken the intimate stage at Franco’s Lounge, a snazzy new music venue (with excellent martinis) tucked inside Franco’s Italian Grill in the Alon Town Center. “The Magic of Sinatra” didn’t stop with spot-on vocals: Salos channeled Ol’ Blue Eyes down to the timing, gestures, and onstage banter. Between songs, the septuagenarian announced with a skip, “I used to be a hoofer,” and then glanced around the room to say, “I’d make a barn out of this place if I used it.”

Franco’s Lounge: 10003 NW Military Hwy., (210) 479-7772, Up next: Texas Tide (10pm Fri, Sep 2), Lofton Kline & Paul Kandera (10pm Sat, Sep 3), Oh So Good Band (10pm Fri, Sep 9), Tribute to the Horn Bands (9pm Sat, Sep 10), Patsy Torres (10pm Fri, Sep 16), Ken Slavin (9pm Sat, Sep 17).
