What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 180 minutes
Young has been staging Sinatra tribute shows since 2004. Like Elvis impersonators, Sinatra singers seem to be a dime-a-dozen. But Young has a way of making you almost believe that Sinatra is alive and singing right in front of you. He has captured the personality and style that made The Chairman of the Board what he was: The Best!
His repertoire includes the songs that many remember the most about "The Voice". New York, New York, My Way, That's Life, Summer Wind, Luck Be a Lady, Nice N' Easy, just to name very few.
Just a place to plug in. I can supply the rest. Like it says on a medallion I own: "Give me a place to stand (the stage) and I can move the world.-Archimedes".
Have own PA sound system, tracks, portable stage lighting. Wireless or corded mics. Capability for live band performances, will provide charts or sheet music for these.
Shows run tailor-made to your needs. One hour to three, one or two intermissions. Song list include the following numbers:
