Tom Burlinson – Swing That Music
This presentation promises a showcase of sensational songs including Academy Award winners, Broadway classics, Jazz standards and modern Pop treasures. Thrilling arrangements by Ed Wilson (of Daly Wilson Big Band fame) will be featured, as well as others of equal brilliance by greats such Nelson Riddle and Billy May.
Tom’s Great Big Band will be made up of some of the finest musicians in the country, providing all the power, excitement and atmosphere of this time-honoured musical style.
Tom is famous for his starring roles in the classic Australian movies ‘The Man from Snowy River’ and ‘Phar Lap’, as well as numerous other film, stage and TV appearances in a career spanning more than 40 years.
In the 1990’s Tom revealed that as well as being a very talented actor, he also had an amazing voice. His first professional singing engagement was as the voice of the young Frank Sinatra in the Warner Brothers mini-series ‘Sinatra’. He later created his own show in celebration of the great man, ‘Frank-A Life in Song’, which became hugely successful all around Australia and overseas. Then followed the national tour of ‘Now We’re Swingin’!’, in which Tom paid homage not only to Sinatra, but also to some of the other great stars of vocal Swing.
The highest quality songs selected for ‘Swing That Music’ include On a Clear Day, Teach Me Tonight, You Are the Sunshine of my Life, Pennies from Heaven, Mr Bojangles, On the Street Where You Live, And I Love Her, A Lot of Livin’ to Do and of course, Swing That Music.
Don’t miss the chance to experience this fine showman renowned for his smooth style and stellar performance skills in an unforgettable evening of musical excellence. Marvellous songs, exhilarating arrangements and prime musicians will make this presentation shine with brilliance!
