Larry DeAngelo – Everything Happens to Me

Larry DeAngelo sings “Everything Happens to Me” (1940), a pop standard written by Tom Adair and Matt Dennis. It was first recorded by the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra featuring Frank Sinatra. Unusually, the song focused on Sinatra’s vocal, with no trombone solo by Dorsey. Years later, Sinatra rerecorded the song with the Hollywood String Quartet; this version was featured on his 1957 album Close to You.

Larry Returning To Shriners

Nat King Cole

GREENVILLE, S. C. – Entertainment Plus Creations is excited to announce that big band singer Larry DeAngelo will be returning to sing at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Greenville, South Carolina on May 9.

In January, Larry performed to an enthusiastic reception at a benefit concert at the hospital, highlighting many of the tracks from his Everything Happens to Me and Night and Day releases, as well as snippets from The Al Jolson Project/featuring Larry DeAngelo and Friends, soon to be released by Entertainment Plus Creations.

If you plan on being in the area, please join us for this event. The show starts at 10 a.m. Eastern time and will also be shown on Facebook Live via the Entertainment Plus Creations page.

Larry will be accompanied by John Martin of Sitnspin Studio, where much of this chart-busting work was produced and recorded.

“I was psyched by the enthusiasm and support from the Shriners folks in January and plan to expand the repertoire into other work like Blue Gardenia, a moody song written by Bob Russell and Lester Lee and delivered by Nat King Cole in a 1953 Fritz Lang film of the same name,” says DeAngelo.

“Anyway, apart from how much I enjoy singing these songs, the work that Shriners does for these kids is remarkable and I’m proud to show my support,” he adds.
