It just doesn’t get any more “Jersey” than Sinatra. Old Blue-Eyes was a Jersey boy, born and bred. His music and that unmistakable, velvety voice have been enjoyed for generations, and there will never be another exactly like him.
The Friends of the Cranford Public Library are sponsoring “A Touch of Sinatra,” a musical show about the life and music of Frank Sinatra, on Monday, September 29th, at 7:30 PM, at the Cranford Community Center at 220 Walnut Avenue. The show will be narrated by Joe Gilligan, a former singer and founder of the oldies group Reminisce. Some of Sinatra’s songs will be sung by Donnie Fararro, an authentic sounding Frank Sinatra performer. Now singing about 100 performances a year, after being diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer in 2004 and told he would probably not survive, much less sing, Donnie has been an inspiration to many.
The audience can expect to hear many of the songs that made Frankie one of the most renowned singers of the 20th century, along with funny stories and jokes that will keep everyone entertained. You can check out the show’s website at http://atouchofsinatra.com/3.html .
The best part? The show is FREE! Grab your loved one, a neighbor, a friend, whomever . . . . and head to the Community Center. Be sure to sing “Fly Me To The Moon” very loudly on your way home. Your neighbors will love that!
