An Evening with Sinatra featuring Kevin Fitzsimmons & his Trio

26/01/2019

Please welcome Kevin Fitzsimmons and his Trio for ‘An Evening with Sinatra’ and come and hear ‘Old Blue Eyes’ sing again! We are extremely excited to welcome Kevin to The Rec Rooms stage who will sing through the Sinatra songbook and a few Rat Pack favourites. Known for his amazing live Frank Sinatra sound-alike vocal performances he delivers respectful tribute with his equally talented trio and performs effortless interpretations that are recommended by the President of Sinatra Music Society - high praise indeed! Booked by many showbiz, celebrity and sports star Sinatra fans from across the world he has also been endorsed by world renowned Sinatra expert Shawn Levy (US best selling author of Rat Pack Confidential). His vocal likeness to Frank Sinatra has even had the Hollywood seal of approval when, following a search for someone to recreate Frank Sinatra for a T.V advert with Oscar nominated movie star Naomi Watts, Kevin’s Sinatra singing voice was judged as being the closest to the real thing! This will be a wonderful night......
