        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

The FAA is ordering fan blade inspections on common airplane engines after one exploded and killed a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight Tuesday. The in-flight explosion blew out a window and killed a passenger who was pulled partway out of the airplane. The FAA announcement late yesterday comes nearly a year after the company that built the engine recommended additional inspections.        President Trump will be leaving West Palm Beach to visit Key West, Florida today. His two-hour visit will include a tour of Naval Air Station Key West-Truman Annex on Boca Chica Key. In addition, the President and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen [[ KIRST-jen ]]Nielsen will be briefed on the activities of an interagency drug task force.        Possible charges in the death of Prince could be filed today. Carver County, Minnesota Attorney Mark Metz will announce his decision soon on whether to charge anyone in the musician's death. The announcement comes two years after the music icon's body was found in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate. Prince died of a massive overdose of fentanyl in April of 2016.        A Celebration of Life for former First Lady Barbara Bush will take place in Houston this evening. The gathering begins tonight outside City Hall. The mayor's office says the event will feature comments and prayers from multiple faith leaders, the reading of a poem, and other tributes. She passed away at the age of 92.        There's a new Cuban president, and his name isn't Castro. Miguel Diaz-Canel was named president today, one day after a vote in the country's National Assembly. It's the first time in almost 60 years that a Castro isn't leading the country. Diaz-Canel was selected as the unopposed candidate to replace Raul Castro, brother of the late Fidel Castro.        Senator Bernie Sanders says Cardi B is right when it comes to social security. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper said in a "GQ" interview last week former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt was "the real 'Make America Great Again'" because he created Social Security. The Vermont Independent and former presidential candidate said on Twitter yesterday that he agrees with her, and that the federal insurance program needs to be strengthened in order to make America great.
