THE MUSEUM OF WESTERN FILM HISTORY
PRESENTS ITS ANNUAL
CONCERT IN THE ROCKS
SATURDAY JUNE 2, 2018
A TRIBUTE TO FRANK SINATRA
Matt Mauser & The Pete Jacobs Orchestra
Enjoy an evening like no other… A collaboration between Matt Mauser and the Pete Jacobs Orchestra that captures Sinatra’s talent at the height of his career when singing with The Count Basie Orchestra at The Sands hotel in Las Vegas.
Matt’s vocal style and Pete’s genius as a conductor are a tribute to the two greats coming together. While there are plenty of tribute acts and impersonators of legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra, Mauser takes it to a level beyond. His golden voice recreates the Sinatra magic with his impeccable phrasing and smooth ring-a-ding-ding style.
For Frank Sinatra fans, Matt Mauser is absolutely uncanny. The show, incorporates true-to-form songs once crafted and branded by Ol’ Blue Eyes, himself. Additionally, Matt and band will be tossing in a few modern rock and R&B classics that Matt says he’s sure Sinatra would have loved singing.
The evening will take you down memory lane… with a marvelous rundown of Sinatra songs including "Come Fly With Me," "Luck be a Lady" (first as Brando sang it in "Guys and Dolls"), "The Best is Yet to Come," "The Way You Look Tonight," "Fly Me to the Moon," "Night and Day," "The Lady is a Tramp," "You Make me Feel so Young," and "I've Got You Under my Skin" and of course Ol’ Blue Eyes classic - New York New York.

History of Lone Ranger Canyon
While details differ, the basic story of the origin of the Lone Ranger is the same in most versions of the franchise. Six Texas Rangers are drawn into a remote canyon and ambushed by a band of outlaws led by Bartholomew "Butch" Cavendish. All are left for dead.
Later, a young Indian named Tonto stumbles on the scene and recognizes the lone survivor, Ranger Reid (whose first name was never given), as the man who had saved his life at some time in the past. He nurses Reid back to health after digging six graves for Reid's comrades, so that Cavendish will think there were no survivors, forgetting that Cavendish thought he had killed seven men in that canyon, including the traitorous scout who led the Rangers into the trap. Among them is Reid's brother, Captain Daniel Reid, who is a Captain of the Texas Rangers. Tonto fashions a black Domino mask using material from Captain Reid's vest to conceal the Lone Ranger's identity. Even after the Cavendish gang is brought to justice, Reid continues to fight for law and order against evil and crime under the guise of the Lone Ranger.
Yes, Kimosabes, that ambush happened in The Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California, in what is now called Lone Ranger Canyon. Each year, the Lone Pine community and Lone Pine Film History Museum pay tribute to the heritage of the canyon’s history by transforming the dramatic canyon into a magical entertainment venue under the Eastern Sierra stars.
