Rob’s Birthday Celebration “Frank, Billie and Me”

The story behind the name of the show was to celebrate the music of two of Rob’s favorite singers, the incomparable Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday. Both would have turned 100 in 2015 if they were still with us and Rob turned 70, hence the big birthday idea!. Rob wanted a show about the music of Frank & Billie plus the songs they would have been singing if (in Rob’s imagination) they had met Rob before they moved on 🙂 Perhaps an overly-active imagination, but heck, ya gotta dream big! 

 Frank, Billie and Me was performed on

November 10, 2015 at The Metropolitan Room

 November 16, 2015 at Etc, Etc, Etc & on

February 4, 2016 at Don’t Tell Mama.

The show featured special guest artists including stellar Musical Director Daryl Kojak, Steven Frieder on Sax, Sean Conly on Base & Dwayne Cook on Drums; plus the 2015 MetroStar winning singer Minda Larsen, the enchanting Crystal Maldonado & Billie’s soul sister herself, Tracy Titus. In the last show on Feb 4th the fabulous Lisa Viggiano joined us as well.
