500 club

The 2011 ‘America’s Got Talent’ winner Landau Murphy Jr. will perform Friday and Saturday as a part of Dante Hall’s 500 Club series this summer.


This summer, Dante Hall is bringing Atlantic City’s famed 500 Club to life once again 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, June 30 through July 29.

The former club, recognized as influential in Atlantic City’s modern entertainment scene, housed performers such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis, Jr. Returning again this summer will be Dave Damiani and the 17-piece No Vacancy Orchestra, who will recreate the vibe of the original joint alongside various performers throughout the five-week series.

On Friday and Saturday, June 30 and July 1, the evening’s featured performer will be Landau Murphy Jr. The artist won “America’s Got Talent” in 2011, and his albums include “Landau,” “That’s Life” and “Christmas Made for Two.” His music reinvents old classics from legends of the past, including Sinatra and the Temptations, along with some of his original creations.

Additional performances to look forward to in the series include Renee Olstead on July 7 and 8; Graham Fenton July 14 and 15; Haley Reinhart on July 22; and a special tribute to the original members of the 500 Club on July 28 and 29.

Dante Hall Theater is located at 14. N. Mississippi Ave., Atlantic City. Tickets are $30. Call 609-626-3890 or go to DanteHallStockton.org.
