Sinatra comes alive in concert
A TOUCH of class will hit Ipswich when Max Miller conjures the spirit of Frank Sinatra.
The Ipswich Advertiser has two tickets to give away for a lucky reader to see Come Fly Away with Max Miller and his 10-piece All Star Swing Big Band.
Miller and his band will present the music of Ol' Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra, at an elegant 'Vegas style' show at Ipswich Civic Hall on Friday, July 17.
Frank Sinatra left behind a legacy of millions of fans and music that spanned five generations.
Miller is widely regarded as Australia's greatest exponent of Frank Sinatra, and sell-out crowds, rave reviews and standing ovations are part and parcel of every one of his shows.
His physical resemblance to Sinatra is also uncanny.
When one of the world's greatest cabaret artists, Sammy Davis Jr, heard Miller perform back in the 80s, he was so impressed that he presented him with his own Sinatra orchestrations, including Birth of the Blues, prepared by Sammy's own musical Director, the legendary George Rhodes.
In this superb tribute, Miller performs all of Frank's Sinatra famed classics.
Songs to be played include; For Once In My Life, My Way, New York, New York, I've Got You Under My Skin, Birth of the Blues, Fly Me to the Moon, My Kind of Town, That's Life, Strangers in the Night, Lady is a Tramp, I'll Be Seeing You, and more.
