Fred Gardner recreates the voice and mannerisms of the incomparable Frank Sinatra in his tribute show to the showbiz legend Sinatra My Way.
Frank Sinatra was arguably one of the greatest singers of all time. Sinatra My Way is one of the leading tribute acts in the UK and brings Frank to life in this fantastic exceptional tribute performance.
Fred Gardner performs his tribute act with a fabulous eight-piece swing band, or as a solo act with professional backing tracks, sounded and orchestrated from the original Frank Sinatra recordings.
Fred has performed at various prestigious venues and on Television both at home and abroad.
His usual style of performance is to both sing and talk in the guise of Frank Sinatra imitating his cabaret-style in a tuxedo and bow tie, or Rat Pack style lounge suit.
