A Touch of Sinatra

Donnie FarraroJoin us for a musical show about the life and music of Frank Sinatra, narrated by Joe Gilligan and performed by Donnie Farraro. You will be entertained with the story of Sinatra’s life, the songs that made him one of the most renowned singers of the 20th century, and funny stories and jokes.

Joe Gilligan is a former singer and founder of the oldies group Reminisce. Reminisce warmed the hearts of many, singing nostalgic songs of the past. He is the creative writer for the “A Touch of Sinatra” show. Mr. Gilligan has done research to uncover some unknown facts about Sinatra and has incorporated them into this entertaining show.

In 2004, Donnie Farraro was diagnosed with Stage 4 throat cancer and was not expected to live, let alone sing. Today, he is an inspiration to many, singing at about 100 performances a year. He may be the most authentic sounding Frank Sinatra singer that you will ever hear.

This concert is funded by the Friends of the Bernardsville Library. It’s free and no sign-up is needed. Doors open at 2:45 pm.
