Michael Feinstein, five-time Grammy, two-time Emmy nominated Ambassador to the Great American Songbook, returns to Adelaide Cabaret Festival to perform a stunning tribute with a 17 piece big band.
Paying tribute to Frank Sinatra and his friends, Feinstein will draw on inspiration from his own close personal friendships such as Liza Minnelli, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Rosemary Clooney, Sammy Davis Jr, and many others – allowing him to offer a very different perspective and point of view in this dazzling celebration of the era.
Balancing amazing swing arrangements with the beautiful orchestrations of famous ballads as well as vintage arrangements not heard publicly in many years or ever, it’s about celebrating legendary musicians and finding unique arrangements that give a broader sense of who they really were.
He is an entertainer, and a grand one at that. Variety
