Encore Gifts Its Red Card Members a Fine Treat
By Lorenzo Recupero
Encore Boston Harbor really knows how to pamper its guest.
Tony Bennett, a 19-time Grammy winning musical icon, is like fine wine to American music history. And on August 8 Encore’s Red Card members were treated to a life-sized glass full of his offerings.
Bennett, born Anthony Dominick Benedetto, was in the house alongside his singing daughter, Antonia Bennett, who opened the show with a 15-minute set of covers of her father’s songs that started with her declaring she had the “best job in the world” being on tour with her dad.
The stop in Everett was part of a summertime East Coast tour featuring the legend and his daughter.
The 93-year old Bennett, who graced the stage with his embracing smile while blowing a kiss to the audience, turned back time and wowed a capacity crowd in Encore’s largest ballroom.
