Tom Burlinson’s internationally acclaimed Frank – A Life in Song is on its way to the newly renovated Lismore City Hall on Thursday 25 July.
The voice of ‘young Frank’ in the Golden Globe award-winning mini-series Sinatra, master storyteller and vocalist Tom Burlinson stars in this swinging, joyous celebration of the music and career of the late, great Ol’ Blue Eyes.
After a national tour taking in major metropolitan venues in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, Tom performed his Sinatra show in Canada and Las Vegas.
Critics around the world agree: Tom Burlinson has the knack of reproducing the unmistakable timbre and gestures that were trademarks of the Sinatra style.
In this two-hour show, accompanied by an eight-piece band, Tom croons his way through around 30 of the most popular classics of the past 60 years, by composers such as Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, and Cahn and Van Heusen.
The songlist includes Come Fly With Me, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, The Lady is a Tramp, Fly Me to the Moon, Mack the Knife, My Way, That’s Life and New York New York, to name just a few.
Tom says that Sinatra may not have had all the individual elements some of the other singers of the era had, but when Sinatra sang a song, it got sung!
‘I don’t try to impersonate Frank, but I sing very much in the Sinatra style,’ says Tom Burlinson
