        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

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

The Trump administration is working toward reuniting children with their migrant parents. The administration says it has returned 364 children of the over 25-hundred who were separate from their parents, according to a court filing. Over 16-hundred parents are reportedly eligible to have their children returned.        President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will soon meet again. The White House has confirmed that Trump told National Security Adviser John Bolton to invite Putin to Washington in the fall. While in Helsinki, Trump had agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs.        The Senate is unanimously voting to block any possibility of allowing foreign governments to question U.S. officials. A non-binding resolution passed with a unanimous vote today. The move comes after possibility that President Trump may allow Russian officials to question a former U.S. ambassador and other Americans.        Conservationists are opposing a Trump administration proposal, fearing it may strip key provisions from the Endangered Species Act. Officials say the change in the text would strip protections from species that are deemed merely "threatened" rather than "endangered." Also at issue is a proposal to strike language guiding officials to ignore economic consequences in favor of wildlife.       Kevin Kisner [[ KIZZ-ner ]] is leading after the first day of The Open Championship. The American carded a five-under 66 in Thursday's first round at Carnoustie Golf Links. Erik van Rooyen, Tony Finau [[ FEE-now ]] and Zander Lombard are all one shot back in second.
