Jon Lanctin

Jon Lanctin, vocalist Jon sang "Fly Me to the Moon" at the Spring, 2012, CAF dance.

Jon sang with the Roseville Big Band at the Spring, 2012, Commemorative Air Force dance, May 19, 2012.

After the power came on and the band was able to start playing, Jon asked if he could sing a song with us. We conferred about tunes and it turned out that one that he knew was already on the tentative song list for the dance. After I confirmed that the key of our arrangement was a good one for Jon to sing, I talked through the arrangement with him, and about 15 minutes later he was standing on the vocal riser singing "Fly Me to the Moon." Even though our arrangement is somewhat different from the familiar Sinatra version, Jon adapted on the spot and wowed the audience, including his girl friend, to whom he dedicated the song.
