Performing With A Michael Jackson Impersonator

 Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson never performed together, but a Florida audience saw a Frank Sinatra Tribute and a Michael Jackson Tribute on the same show not long ago when I performed my Frank Sinatra Tribute along with Joby Rogers as Michael Jackson.

Joby is a fine performer and has Michael’s look, energy and moves.  He got the audience involved and they loved it.  The combination of Frank and Michael was not a bad mix for a gathering with different age groups and tastes.  For audiences that will miss Michael, Joby will provide a very credible and entertaining re-creation.

Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight

Sin. Osc. Songs

An often requested song at my Frank Sinatra Impersonator show is The Way You Look Tonight.  It originally goes back to 1936 when it was sung by Fred Astaire in the movie Swing Time, for which it won the Academy Award as that year’s best song.  It was also a 60’s hit with nice harmonies by The Lettermen, and has been recorded many times over the years by various artists.

It was recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1964 with a chart by Frank’s favorite arranger Nelson Riddle, and popularized for a new generation in 1989 when that version was featured in a TV commercial for Michelob Beer.  Though that exposure generated many fan requests for the song, The Way You Look Tonight was never performed in concert by Frank Sinatra.
