Frank Sinatra Tribute

sinatra-tribute-act

Being and entertainer was unavoidable for Kevin. His father was a singer/pianist, his mother a 1950’s model and members of his family appeared in films alongside the likes of Richard Burton, Peter Sellers, Michael Caine and David Niven.

It was from around the age of five that Kevin first discovered ‘the American song book’. Singing Pennies from Heaven accompanied by his father, who’s constant renditions of Gershwin, Porter and Berlin were to leave an irreversible impression.

I Get a Kick out of You

 Lady is a Tramp

By his early twenty’s, Kevin found himself in the company of and performing with other like minded aficionado’s. Their profound knowledge and musicianship helped forward his studies. These included the likes of American saxophonist Spike Robinson, John Crithinson (piano accompanist with Ronnie Scott), and bass player Lennie Bush, who sessioned on Frank Sinatra’s album ‘ Great Songs from Great Britain’.

Kevin has performed at a huge variety of venues, ranging from top London Hotels (i.e The Savoy, Dorchester etc.), The Institute of Director’s, The Variety Club of Great Britain, many corporate events (large and small), jazz clubs, weddings, stately homes, large hotel groups (UK and overseas), Southend Airshow and even at a primiership football match @ Southhamptons’s ground St. Mary’s.

With his immense stage presence. Kevin delivers his tribute in a sophisticated manner the great Sinatra deserves. He proves, without question, that when you possess the same impressive vocal ability as Sinatra, being an exact ‘lookalike’ is not needed to recreate Sinatra in his vocal prime and mature years. He performs effortlessly not only the less challenging songs but also the more vocally difficult. In his act he uses only the best quality live recordings of American big band arrangements or can be backed by anything from a piano to a full piece big band. The result of all this being a truly memorable experience.

Sorry its taken so long for me to get back to you but I just wanted to say what a fantastic singer Kevin is as Frank Sinatra he made my wedding day go off superbly. People haven’t stopped talking about it and with kevin singing I achieved the atmosphere I was looking for. Everyone thought he was fabulous so I can’t thank him enough for making my day!
Please could you pass on my thanks.

Kind regards
Penny.

Kevin is an amazing guy in everyway:
“Take one special occasion, add over a hundred guests, sprinkle a little light and some fine wine to taste. Once all of this has been thoroughly mixed, slowly include your Frank Sinatra and you will find you have the perfect night. Kevin (from here on known as Frank) was the epitome of professional entertainment going so far as to allow the groom to sing along with him.

When I first saw Frank enter the room I was a little apprehensive as he was dressed as the young Frank, this assumption was dashed by his choice of songs. They not only enhanced a time we shall never forget but reflected in our opinion the great style and uniqueness that was Frank. In a sentence, I want this man at our birthdays, weddings, christenings, Christmas…….. I think you get the picture. It only leaves me to thank Frank for being with us. Thank you Frank (Kevin)”
We are pretty sure he will have future bookings from our friends.

Thanks so much.

Reviews
“That was fantastic, what a great voice” – Sir Trevor Mcdonald

“Wow, when you and the band started playing we couldn’t believe how
good you all were – we’ll definately have you back again” – J. Todd, Unilever Head Office, London

“My client was very impressed by you and your band, so much so that they want us to make sure you’re booked again for their next event” – The Finishing Touch Event Co, London

“Thank you so much for a fabulous performance last night. We will definitely book you for next year” – Karen Peters, Reed Business Information Ltd., Surrey

“I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Kevin. He was absolutely fantastic! He exceeded our wildest dreams and each and every one of our guests commented on the quality of the performance. Kevin managed to get everyone dancing and it created a magical atmosphere that’s hard to put into words. It was a “broadway” performance that truly deserves praise and thanks. Thank you for enhancing and completing the most special day of our lives, and whenever the next family event comes along he will definitely be at the top of our list!” – Nicola & Julian , Cheshire

“Kevin is the best act we have ever booked.” – Beverley Sidnell, City Group PLC

“There is much more to being a tribute act than the right make-up and costume, as is proved by the marvelous Kevin Fitzsimmons. His Sinatra relies ostensibly on a remarkably astute vocal tribute. With a perfectly natural timbre to his voice he immediately conjures up Old Blue Eyes in his glory years. His choices for the afternoon were impeccable, offering the audience a glimpse at Sinatra the lounge singer, with the familiar Witchcraft to open, I’ve Got The World On A String and closing with the louche, almost melancholy One For My Baby”.

I guess I’ll have to change my plans
I left my heart in San Francisco
I’ll never be the same

I only have eyes for you
It had to be you
I thought about you
It never entered my mind
Its delovely
It was a very good year

The way you look tonight
They can’t take that away from me
Things
Too close for comfort
Too marvelous for words
Volare
Where or when
Witchcraft
With plenty of money and you
Wives and lovers
You brought a new kind of love
You’d be so easy to love
You make me feel so young
You’re getting to be a habit
You’re nobody ’til somebody loves you
