They’re songs familiar to generations – Come Fly With Me, New York, New York, Fly Me To The Moon, Mr Bojangles… the list goes on and on. And Scott Free, ex-Edinburgh, Brighton and Adelaide – Australia festivals entertainer, Cunard QE2 cabaret performer and singer, is never happier than when he’s performing in front of an audience and belting them out for all they’re worth. Now Scott is back with his new show – ‘Swingin’ Sinatra’, specialising in bringing top-quality entertainment to the senior residential care sector, and he couldn’t be happier.
Scott, who was born and brought up in Weymouth, Dorset, says, “It’s just fantastic to be performing again, bringing happiness to people. “These are songs which have survived the test of time and it brings me great joy to sing them to audiences who still know and love them.” A fan of Frank Sinatra, known as ‘Ol’ Blue Eyes’ and ‘Chairman of the Board’, from an early age, Scott is also an aficionado of fellow ‘Rat Pack’ artists such as Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr as well as Andy Williams, Bobby Darin and Louis Armstrong – and of course, Michael Bublé. Songs from all these artists – and more! – feature in the show. So, while the Swingin’ Sinatra show appeals to those of a ‘certain generation’ who remember and loved the music first-time around, now a whole new – and younger – audience is appreciating a genre of music that many thought had disappeared forever.
Scott started out entertaining care home residents more than 20 years ago. He moved onto cruise ships and liners, including Cunard’s QE2, as well as festivals as far afield as Edinburgh in Scotland and Adelaide in Australia. His notices include glowing 4 and 5 star reviews from the Scotsman, Adelaide News, What’s on Stage and Edinburgh Festival write-ups. One reviewer said: “With every line he delivers, he convinces me that he means it. “He interacts with the audience with the ease of a seasoned professional. “This voice is a dream come true.” Scott has now come full circle, bringing his new show to residential and care homes in Dorset, Devon and Hampshire, as well as performing at events such as this summer’s show on Brownsea Island.
Apart from classics from the likes of Sinatra, ‘Swingin’ Sinatra’ also features the songs of Charles Aznavour, Matt Monro, Andy Williams, Elvis Presley and many more. Bournemouth-based swing/jazz crooner, Scott Free’s show ‘Swingin’ Sinatra’ is a lively uptempo tribute to ol’ blue eyes! All the Sinatra hits and more!
