Miss the crooners? Old-school comedy?

A local entertainment organization brings back the good old days of entertainment, everything from the music of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra to the laughs only Joan Rivers or Don Rickles can deliver.

"Yesteryear Entertainment specializes in high-end, award-winning impersonators performing individually or as a group," said Jerry Nolan, event coordinator. "What surprises people most is how good they are - close your eyes and you believe Dean, Frank or Neil Diamond is in the room with you."
