Tom Burlinson and his All Star Big Band perform all the wonderful songs from the iconic 1966 recording Sinatra At the Sands during the super cool era of The Rat Pack.

Tom's show recreates the original musical arrangements by the great Quincy Jones for the magnificent Count Basie Orchestra, faithfully recreated by Tom’s powerful big band made up of some New Zealand’s finest musicians.

Currently enjoying sold-out shows across Australia, the "Sinatra at the Sands" song-list includes “Come Fly with Me”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “One for my Baby”, "You Make Me Feel so Young”, “Fly Me to the Moon”, “It was a Very Good Year”, “My Kind of Town” and many more. Tom will also perform a Bonus Set of Sinatra’s greatest hits including “Strangers in the Night”; “That’s Life”; “My Way” and of course, “New York, New York”.

Tom Burlinson is best known for his famous starring role in the classic Australian movies The Man From Snowy River and Phar Lap, as well numerous TV appearances. In 1991 Tom was chosen by Tina Sinatra to sing the voice of her father in the Golden Globe Award-winning mini-series “Sinatra”. This lead to a whole new development in Tom’s musical career. He created his own show in celebration of the ‘Chairman of the Board’, as Sinatra is known. Tom’s show “Frank - A Life in Song” was a huge success in Australia and Canada. And in 2007 the great entrepreneur Steve Wynn personally invited Tom to perform at his Wynn Las Vegas resort.

Later came a tour of “Now we’re Swingin” in which Tom paid homage to Sinatra and other great performers such as Nat ‘King’ Cole, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jnr, Bobby Darin as well as Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble. Tom also toured with a smaller musical ensemble “Simply Sinatra”.

The album Sinatra at the Sands has been described as ‘Brilliant’, ‘incredibly exciting’, ‘the definitive portrait of Sinatra in the 60’s’, ‘Esssential, ‘a priceless document’ and ‘simply the best’. The album was remixed, remastered and released in 2003.

In 2015, legendary Rollingstone Magazine named Sinatra at the Sands #36 of 50 of the greatest live albums of all time.

Tom Burlinson has proven he is one of the best in the world at Sinatra-inspired singing. Tom is renowned for his smooth style and astonishing performance skills, especially his accomplished and polished "phrasing" skills that made Sinatra so unique.

Recent Reviews:
“The next best thing to Sinatra” – Courier Mail
Adelaide Cabaret Festival – June 2016

“Sinatra may be gone but his legacy endures as can be seen via Michael Buble’, Harry Connick Jnr and Tom Burlinson. Sinatra at the Sands was a class act from start to finish, consistently entertaining its audience until the final and well-deserved bow.

QPAC Queensland Cabaret Festival June 2015:
“Why is Burlinson so popular? It’s because he is not just a tribute singer. He is s singer with a stunning voice in his own right. There are not a great many successful Sinatra copy cats because few singers have the highly underestimated range of Sinatra’s voice.

Tom sparkles and adds his own vibrant personality to perfect Sinatra phrasing and style. He works with the orchestra the way Sinatra did, so audiences get the best of both worlds.
