It was a big year for Frank Sinatra fans as it marked the famous crooners 100th birthday. Celebrations were had, memorabilia was auctioned off and even booze were created to honor his favorite drink. Of course, his home state of New Jersey honored Ol’ Blue Eyes too as the Hoboken Historical Museum put on the exhibit “The Man, the Voice, and the Fans.” Haven’t seen it yet? Well, you still have a chance.
On December 30th the exhibit will close, but go now to check out displays, videos, listening stations, fan photographs, artifacts, memories from fans, and more. Throughout the year, a number of tribute singers performed and to close out the series former Sinatra Idol Contest winner, Eric DeLauro, will perform on the final night.
Really amazing spot at the Hoboken Historical Museum. Currently they have an entire exhibit on the life of Frank Sinatra then they have the Lounge where you can play any of the many vinyls they have of Sinatra. I sat for an hour and listened. . . . . . . #hoboken #newjersey #ig_newjersey #sinatra #vinyl #roadtrippin #hobokenhistoricalmuseum
Admission to the event is free for members and $4 for non-members. Head to hobokenmuseum.org for more information. Parking for the event can be validated for up to 3 hours at the Littleman Garage at 12th Street and Shipyard Lane.
And if that’s still not enough Sinatra for you, a few vintage photographs are being auctioned off right now. Scoop a few up and perhaps start a mini museum of your own. The best is yet to come, right?
