Attention Frank Sinatra fans, have we got a show for you.
This Friday, Aug 30 at the Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park, the legendary actor and entertainer – Robert Davi – will pay tribute to Old Blue Eyes with an unparalleled and free performance.
Davi’s taken his Road to Romance tour across the Country wowing crowds everywhere. After his roles in major motion pictures including License to Kill; the Goonies and Die Hard, the Hofstra alum has returned to his true love – singing. And, of course, emulating his idol – Frank Sinatra.
Before he takes the stage in Nassau, you can hear Davi, along with County Executive Ed Mangano, and DJ Paul Richards – talk about the upcoming performance and Davi’s life, on WHLI Thursday morning between 9am and 10am. WHLI – that’s 1100 on your AM dial. Listen to Davi’s personal stories about Sinatra – the Chairman of the Board.
And, log onto WHLI.com for your chance to win all access passes to the backstage bbq before Davi’s performance.
Davi grew up in New York and studied opera as a young man. The actor, singer, writer, producer and director, is also the father of five children and a proud, American activist.
He’s also one of the most recognizable entertainers in the world. Frank Sinatra hand-picked him to play Mickey Sinardos in the 1977 NBC television drama “Contract on Cherry Street.”
Davi has made a career out of playing tough guys both on the big screen and on television, and he’s worked with some of the most respected actors in Hollywood. Throughout his career, he’s worked with Marlon Brando, Clint Eastwood, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis and James Franco.
His television credits include appearances on “Criminal Minds.”
Those who know him say Davi, unlike the tough guy, villain he often portrays, is a “sensitive romantic; gentle soul who brings a masculine edge to these songs; a great mixture of sensitivity and toughness.”
Davi’s album called “On The Road To Romance” is a “Tribute to Sinatra, the Great American Songbook and America.”
Audience favorites include: “Come Fly With Me,” “Luck Be A Lady,” “Fly Me To The Moon,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Moonlight In Vermont,” “It Was A Very Good Year,” “Angel Eyes” and “Summer Wind.”
