SINATRA A 20th Anniversary Tribute
with Rat Pack star LIAM O’BRIEN and the Million Dollar Swing Band
Liam O’Brien brings his brand new show SINATRA to Dolan’s Warehouse on Friday 25th May – a tribute to his hero and arguably the world’s most iconic singer.
A sold out success every year with Crooning at Christmas, Liam also played Dean Martin on tour in the UK and US in the West End production of the Rat Pack, and has continued to hone his own voice and style as one of Ireland’s premier crooners.
His passion for performing the music of that era has continued in his own work and touring UK big band shows like the The Kings of Swing, and he’s dedicated particularly to breathing new life into the saloon songs and big band favourites of Frank Sinatra.
This May marks the 20th anniversary of the passing of ‘Ol Blue Eyes’ and indeed Dolan’s Warehouse, which opened it’s doors exactly 20 years ago.
“In 1998 I heard of the passing of Frank Sinatra; I was a massive fan of Tony Bennett at the time but genuinely didn’t know as much about Frank. I was deeply upset for some reason but since then I’ve devoured every recording, every concert performance, every film and book.
It’s been a 20 year love affair with the man and his music and it felt like the perfect time to revisit 20 songs that have impacted on myself as a person, have influenced the way I interpret and perform, and have ultimately helped me become the singer I am today.
I don’t impersonate Frank Sinatra; I emulate his style, his phrasing and his wonderful ability as a storyteller, which for me is the greatest tribute I can make.” – Liam O’Brien
Backed by a 7 piece Million Dollar Swing Band with custom arrangements, the brand new show promises a night of unforgettable fare from Fly Me To The Moon and The Wee Small Hours, to You Make Me Feel So Young and One More For The Road.
With special guest West End star and Limerick’s own Shonagh Daly (Les Miserables) bringing her stunning voice back home with classics such as Fever, Get Happy and The Man That Got Away, it’s a night for all to celebrate swing music, homegrown talent and above all else Francis Albert Sinatra!
