When Chris Thomas takes the stage, he doesn’t just sing, he aims to embody the swagger and style of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis and Frank Sinatra, showing off his 30-plus years of professional dancing experience with every tap of his foot. With an 18-piece big band behind him — horns, rhythm section, guitar and keyboard ablaze — he lifts audiences out of their chairs.
