I’M sure it won’t have escaped your notice that Francis Albert Sinatra would have been 100 this year.
There’s probably nothing I can tell you about Frank, one of the best selling artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide, but now you’ve got a chance to enjoy Sinatra’s music on your doorstep.
Local actor and crooner Wayne Devlin is taking to the stage in Urmston to bring the New Jersey legend to life.
Wayne was spotted singing Sinatra’s songs in New York and Las Vegas, and closer to home he had a residency at the Trafford Centre.
A couple of months ago Wayne was named as ‘One of the 40 Faces of Trafford’ in recognition of the work he has done for local charities and community groups.
Now he’s raising money again with his Sinatra concert and will donate the profits to buy equipment in the new sensory area for babies and children with special needs at Cheeky Cherubs soft play centre.
The classy gig is on Friday at Our Lady’s and The English Martyrs Parish Centre, Davyhulme Road.
Get yourself along and you’ll be made very welcome by Manchester’s own Ol’ Blue Eyes.
