ATLANTIC CITY — While a singer doing a Frank Sinatra tribute in Atlantic City may not initially sound groundbreaking, 19-year-old crooner Brandon Tomasello has captivated audiences by channeling not just the sound but also the look of ‘Ol Blue Eyes — right down to wearing custom cufflinks, shoes, and even a Sinatra-esque pinky ring.
Back by popular demand after charming Atlantic City casino audiences earlier this year with his Sing Swing Sinatra program, Tomasello will be back this Friday and Saturday nights, July 20-21, for a show called Back in the Day that recognizes the great singers of the legendary nightclubs of the 1950s and ‘60s.
Joined by comedians and renowned impersonators of said singers of legendary clubs, Andre and Cirell, Back in the Day will be a night of laughs and music, mixing musical comedy with the fresh vocal styling of Tomasello and the classic songs we know and love.
An eight-piece orchestra will back Tomasello for the first time in his performing career, helping him to recreate the big band sound of his idol Sinatra. His vocal talent, candid between-song patter, charismatic stage presence and humble appreciation of the musical greats make Tomasello an act not to be missed.
Back in the Day will be debuting this Friday and Saturday, July 20-21, at 8pm at the Starlight Room at Resorts. Tickets are $20 and are available through Ticketmaster, at Resorts box office or by calling 800-334-6378. — Lindsey Appleton
