Start spreading the news, Ole’ Blue Eyes is coming to UAM. Not exactly, but Tom Tirrato’s crooning is a near perfect imitation of Frank Sinatra. Tirrato will perform at the UAM Fine Arts Center Sunday Dec. 12 at 2 p.m.
Tirrato began his career in Florida where he was heavily influenced by the big band sound of the '30s and '40s. He later went on to gain national fame as a Sinatra tribute singer. Since then he has performed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and has even appeared on his own stage show at Bush Gardens in Tampa Florida.
Presented by the Southeast Arkansas Concert Association, "A Big Band Swing of the Season" is free to UAM students and $12 for non students. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at 870-367-6929. Song clips and personal information on Tirrato can be found at www.sinatra-tribute.com.
For the past 28 years, SEARK has offered cultural and aesthetic experiences to Southeast Arkansas. In its 29th season, SEARK continues to be an essential ingredient in the growth and development of Southeast Arkansas.
