“Sinatra Sings Sinatra” features songs that Frank Sinatra sang in over 50 years of performing, many of which Sinatra Jr. witnessed first hand.  A portion of the show includes a photo gallery depicting Sinatra’s “look” throughout each decade while Sinatra, Jr. sings the songs that best represented the times.  The show includes such classics as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “One For My Baby,” “New York, New York,” “Luck Be A Lady” and “Strangers In The Night.”

“With this concert and our wonderful orchestra, we feel like we’re visiting old friends again,” said Sinatra, Jr.  “The people come to hear the music, so I always make sure the music is the real star of the show.  I want the spotlight to shine on the individual musicians, as well as the singer.”

Having performed for nearly 50 years himself in major clubs and showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Brazil, and England, Sinatra, Jr. has appeared on stage with such showbiz greats as George Burns, Phil Harris, Flip Wilson, and his father.  Throughout the 1960s and into the early-1990s, Sinatra Jr. appeared regularly in Las Vegas, opening for many stars in the main rooms and headlining in his own right in the lounges.  In 1988, Sinatra Jr. joined his father’s staff as musical director and conductor.

With five albums to his credit, Sinatra, Jr. has also appeared in films and television shows, including The Sopranos and Son of the Beach.

“Starting in November of each year and running through the end of December, Milwaukee County families are given the opportunity to give back through the donation of coins and bills to the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign,” said Major Roger Ross, Salvation Army Milwaukee County Commander. “The funds raised provide services to thousands of area residents, giving them an opportunity to not only have a joyous holiday season, but to also have access to other services throughout the year. This concert will enable people to not only support the programs and services offered by The Salvation Army, but enjoy an evening of music.”
