Previously-announced show; tickets are on sale now
St. Petersburg, Fla. (Feb. 25, 2016) – Out in front of a 20-piece big band, singer Frank Sinatra Jr. pays tribute to his iconic father – celebrating what would have been Sinatra Sr.’s 100th birthday – with Sinatra Sings Sinatra – The Centennial Celebration, Thursday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m.
“The audience knows the music and they expect to hear songs closely associated with him,” Sinatra says. “They’ve all heard the stories and the legends told, re-told, over-told and mis-told,” Sinatra says. “Now it’s time to tell them something about the man.”
He’ll do just that through a unique multi-media experience, sharing family anecdotes, rare photographs and video footage from Sinatra Sr.’s public and private lives.
And, of course, the music. Sinatra, who was the onstage conductor for the final eight years of his father’s life, will sing “Come Fly With Me,” “New York, New York,” “Strangers in the Night,” “My Way” plus many more from the vast catalog of one of music’s most beloved entertainers.
Said Buzznews.net: “Sinatra Jr. has achieved something more in this production than mere imitation or tribute. He has created a highly entertaining and moving audience experience, partly because he is talented in his own right, and partly because he has something no Sinatra impersonator will ever have. Sinatra Jr. has the blood of his genius and powerful father – the evergreen Frank Sinatra – running though his veins, which makes the whole audience aware they are in Frank Sinatra’s presence.”
