        SINATRA:  THE CONCERT’ STARRING WOONSOCKET NATIVE BRIAN DUPREY

 TO HEADLINE AUTUMNFEST 2017

Special Guest Jami Duprey as Marilyn Monroe & Featuring a                       LIVE Swinging 12-piece Big Band

 

Las Vegas Headliner Brian Duprey is the only Sinatra tribute artist endorsed by Nancy Sinatra herself who mistakenly thought it was her Dad singing on Howard Stern Radio, but Howard quickly corrected her and said, “That's Brian Duprey!"  As an actor in the hit show "The Rat Pack is Back," Brian spent 10 years perfecting his craft in Las Vegas and in over 200 Performing Arts Centers and Casinos across the country. His lead role and creative development of the show built a 48 state tour and also secured the title of Best Tribute Show of Las Vegas in 2014.
 

Showered with awards and recognition for his live and recorded performances, Brian Duprey had his big break on FOX TV’s “Performing As,” where he won top prize by portraying his idol, Frank Sinatra.  Brian has been featured on CSI Las Vegas, The History Channel, NBA Allstar Jam, and the hit movie Get Him To The Greek. He also opened for the likes of Paul Anka and the cast of HBO’s Sopranos and wowed specials guests like Steve Wynn at The Smith Center in Las Vegas.

 

Brian Duprey’s portrayal of Frank Sinatra has received many great reviews

 

"He’s Got It Down!” - Nancy Sinatra

 

“Brian stands alone as the number one Frank Sinatra performer in the world” - Examiner.com
 

“Duprey’s baritone is a dead-ringer for Ol’ Blue Eyes” - Winnipeg Free Press
 

“Duprey’s rendition of ‘My Way’ is worth the ticket price alone!” - Chicago Tribune

The government's plan to reunify families that were separated at the border is getting an approval by a federal judge. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw said today in San Diego that she "wholeheartedly" approves of the government's plan and they should move "full speed ahead." Government attorneys pointed out that Sabraw's injunction does not require the return of any deported parents to the country. The American Civil Liberties Union had asked for that.       The judge in the Paul Manafort tax and bank fraud Paul Manafort case is getting federal protection after saying he's received threats. Judge T.S. Ellis said he also won't release the names of the 12-member jury because he's concerned about their safety. The judge didn't release any details about the threats.        Sixty former intelligence officers sent a letter to President Trump telling him America is less safe if politics is deciding who gets a national security clearance and who does not. Trump revoked the credentials of former CIA Director John Brennan yesterday and today he admitted politics was the reason. Many of the people signing the letter said they disagree with Brennan's views, but they are concerned when former officials lose their clearance because of political retaliation.       The man convicted for killing five people and injuring six others at a Fort Lauderdale airport mass shooting is going to jail for a long time. Twenty-eight-year-old Esteban Santiago was sentenced to five life terms plus 120 years for the January 2017 attack. The Alaska man retrieved a handgun from his checked bag, then loaded it in a bathroom before randomly firing it in a crowded terminal.        A decorated Special Forces soldier is in trouble today after his two backpacks came back to the United States with 90 pounds of cocaine in it. Army Master Sergeant Daniel Gould vacationed in Columbia the week before and returned to the U.S. without the bags. Officials are trying to learn if the person who put the backpacks on the plane knew what was inside or not. Solving a Rubik's Cube is hard, but many have done it. No one has done six of them while holding their breath under water until now. An 18-year-old boy in the country of Georgia accomplished the feat in an effort to break the Guinness world record. Vako Marchelashvili did all six underwater in one minute and 44 seconds.
