Las Vegas star Brian Duprey ("The Rat Pack is Back") returns to the Mattie Kelly Arts Center October 22, 2016 to perform a knock-out recreation of Frank Sinatra in a tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes that's backed by the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra! "SINATRA: THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE CONCERT" features Duprey who is hailed as the best Sinatra singing voice in the world today! "This guy has it down!" enthused Nancy Sinatra.
The concert is a fundraiser for the NFSO in the professional orchestra's 30th Season on the Emerald Coast. Tickets are $35 each. An NFSO 30th Anniversary Gala Reception proceeds the concert and may be purchased separately for $30. Individual tickets or NFSO Season Packages which include the Sinatra Special Event Concert are now on sale from the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Box Office.
Showered with awards and recognition for his live and recorded vocal performances, Brian Duprey's voice is the closest you'll ever hear to Frank Sinatra in his prime. This Las Vegas star had his big break on Fox TV's hit reality show "Performing As," where he won the top prize by portraying his idol, Frank Sinatra.
As an actor in the hit show "The Rat Pack is Back," Brian Duprey spent 10 years in Las Vegas perfecting his craft and exemplified excellence in every aspect of his tribute to Frank Sinatra. His lead role and creative development of the show built a 48 state tour, repeat bookings, and secured the title of Best Tribute Show of Las Vegas in 2014. He's performed in over 200 Performing Arts Theaters and Casinos across the country generating sold-out performances and rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
"The Rat Pack is Back" with Brian Duprey appeared at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center in the 2014-15 Season to a sold-out house and rave reviews by local patrons - so we are very proud to bring Duprey back during the 30th Season of the NFSO for his new solo show featuring the very best of legend Frank Sinatra!
Not only did 2015 mark the 100th Year Anniversary of Frank Sinatra's Birth, it also birthed Brian Duprey's brand new show called "SINATRA: The Ultimate Tribute Concert." Brian is not just performing a musical tribute to Frank Sinatra, he actually transforms into Ol' Blue Eyes on stage. For the people who never saw Frank in concert or long to see him again, Brian is the next best thing.
Unlike a Jersey Boys or Million Dollar Quartet, the SINATRA: The Ultimate Tribute Concert dispenses entirely of story telling as Brian Duprey takes the audience through as many as 30 Sinatra classics. It's straight-up concert! Sinatra: The Ultimate Tribute Concert is the only authentic recreation of Frank Sinatra in concert with every look, move, mannerism, and speech matched with the closest Sinatra singing voice in the world today. Brian delivers a knock-out performance that Frank would be proud of.
SINATRA: The Ultimate Tribute Concert is elevated far above every other "Musical Tribute" to Sinatra. While other shows feature just another singer in a tuxedo, Brian's flawless acting ability channels Sinatra's energy and spirit. Brian's command of the stage, his uncanny mannerisms, and note-for-note LIVE renditions of Frank's material creates a suspension of disbelief for the audience who believes they have been transported back in time to witness a real Sinatra concert.
