SPECIAL GUESTS: Hosted by Bill Spadea, with special guests The Duprees and featuring the 22 piece Ol' Blue Eyes Orchestra.
Here's an overview of the show from the official website: Starring Michael Martocci with the 22-piece Ol’ Blue Eyes Orchestra conducted by Mike Nigro. Sinatra, A Man and His Music features a multi-media presentation celebrating Mr. Sinatra’s career.
Hosted by Bill Spadea, Michael Martocci, a resident of New Jersey, is one of the best Sinatra Tribute Artists in the business today. So much that Mr. Sinatra’s manager Eliot Weisman, has boasted that, “Michael is the closest you will ever come to reliving the Sinatra experience, backed by a 22-piece orchestra playing all the original Sinatra orchestrations”.
Michael lets this audience know that he is NOT a SINATRA IMPERSONATOR. You would have to be crazy to think that anyone can be Frank Sinatra. He simply does these concerts to keep the music alive and make sure his Grandkids, will know the name and the music of Frank Sinatra.
Michael was the opening act for comic legend Don Rickles for many years, and has performed in Atlantic City, Las Vegas and all across America to standing ovations. Fans who have seen Michael perform, have given him the best compliment - You close your eyes and you think it’s Frank Sinatra.
The Duprees (“You Belong to Me”) have entertained audiences who love their unique and romantic sound for more than six decades. Their dedication to preserving the sound, sharing it with more people, and spreading appreciation for music everywhere continues with Tommy Petillo, Phil Granito, and Jimmy Spinelli who are today’s Duprees for more than 40 years now of stage performances.
A Q&A with Sinatra Tribute Artist Michael Martocci:
What led you to being so passionate about Frank?
I discovered the music as a toddler as it was always present at our home growing up. My Dad was a close friend of a close Sinatra associate, so you can say that Sinatra was like family! Later on in life I got to work with the Sinatra organization which was a dream job. So the music has been in me my entire life.
If you had to choose a favorite song, what would it be and why?
Wow, that’s a tough one. There is such a body of work. How about my top 5 to sing. Cycles, Under My Skin, That’s Life, You and Me and My Way.
Why is it important to continue the legacy of Frank? You will never find a singer who gave you his heart and guts in every song. The orchestrations were written by some of the greatest arrangers to ever pick up the pen. And the lyrics are priceless. It as a man in a tux holding a microphone with some of the best musicians in the world behind him. No pyrotechnics, no gimmicks just raw talent.
Are you friendly with his family, and if so, what's a piece of advice or two that was given to you, that you'll never forget? Unfortunately I am not friendly with the family, but I am close to all the people that worked closely with him. The best advice? Eliot Weisman, Frank Sinatra’s manager, has given me so much advice that has molded me to the performer I am today. Just too much to write.
