As much as I loved the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Ricky Nelson, I was a little different from other girls my age ... my first love was Frank Sinatra.
I saw him only once, in Las Vegas - at the end of his long career, but I collected his albums and have quite a few CDs.
Since his death in 1998, tribute acts have popped up all over the place. Michael Buble has made a whole career out of singing Sinatra songs.
Jan. 30 and Jan. 31, a "Simply Sinatra" tribute is coming to North and East Texas.
Las Vegas headliner Steve Lippia is bringing his act, along with a big band, to the Eisemann Center in Richardson (Jan. 30) and then to the Cowan Center on the UT Tyler campus (Jan. 31)
From the Cowan Center webiste:
Steve Lippia has become one of the most prominent, in-demand vocalists and has quickly established his place among the finest interpreters of “standards” and traditional pop music in the nation. His youthful, energetic talent and powerful show creates a perfect blend of “classic” with “today.” Mr. Lippia’s sound is reminiscent of a younger Sinatra. His singing reveals a man who truly understands a lyric, in a deeply personal way. In his one-night-only engagement with his big band, he will sing some of Sinatra’s biggest hits including; “The Lady is a Tramp,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “The Best is Yet To Come,” “My Way,” “New York, New York” and many more.
Read my interview with Lippia in an upcoming edition of the News-Telegram.
