DEARBORN, Michigan – If you enjoy listening to the music of Frank Sinatra, you’ll want to mark Saturday, March 12 on your calendar.
On that early spring evening, the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center will present “Simply Sinatra,” featuring Steve Lippia and the Johnny Trudell Orchestra.
Lippia’s voice is reminiscent of the young Sinatra, whose near-magical voice became an integral part of American life on the home front during WWII, and helped bridge the gap between the big band sound of the 1940s and the Rock ‘n Roll era of the mid-to-late 1950s.
Close your eyes at this performance and you can’t help but conclude that you’re listening to Ol’ Blue Eyes, himself. The similarity is amazing.
Lippia delivers all of your Sinatra favorites, including trademark pieces, “The Lady is a Tramp,” “That’s Life,” and “New York, New York.”
Tickets, priced at $29-$49, are on sale at the theater box office, which is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Tickets may also be purchased on-line at www.dearborntheater.com.
