It was standing room only at the Westport Center for Senior Activities as crooner Steve D'Agostino belted medleys from the Great American Songbook on Sunday afternoon.

Backed by a band that included his brother Marc on drums, Chris Coulter on saxophone and Geno Heiter on bass, D'Agostino performed the timeless tunes of great songwriters like Cole Porter, Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Cahn.

Part of the center's Sunday Music Series, the performance was organized by the Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts and funded by the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation.
