Frank Sinatra’s swing­ing tunes of the 1960s will live long into the fu­ture through Tom Burlin­son. Best known for his act­ing ca­reer that saw him star in The Man from Snowy River, Burlin­son has been tour­ing the coun­try play­ing the mu­sic of Sinatra re­cently.

Cel­e­brat­ing 100 years since Sinatra’s birth, Burlin­son is tak­ing to the stage with a new per­for­mance of the clas­sic live al­bum Sinatra at the Sands.

“I’ve been singing Sinatra for a while and I wanted to come up with some­thing to cel­e­brate the 100 years since his birth,” says Burlin­son.

“It is one of the most bril­liant al­bums he recorded in 1966 as he sings some of his great­est songs in­clud­ing Come Fly with Me, I’ve Got You Un­der My Skin, One for my Baby and You Make Me Feel So Young.

“The other great thing is there is a mix of swing and slower songs so you re­ally do get both sides of Sinatra.”

Burlin­son will be backed by his All Star Band with sev­eral trum­pets and trom­bones.

Ad­mit­ting he doesn’t pre­tend to be Sinatra, Burlin­son says it is about cel­e­brat­ing his life.

“Of course I wear a din­ner suit like he did,” he says.
