This week, Ira spoke with Bob Anderson.
Bob Anderson is starring in “FRANK –The Man. The Music” in The Palazzo Theater at The Palazzo® Las Vegas. The show honors the life and music of Frank Sinatra, and features a 31-piece orchestra under the musical direction of Vincent Falcone.
Taking audiences on a musical journey through the legendary crooner’s timeless hits, “FRANK – The Man. The Music.” highlights three distinct areas of Sinatra’s career: the recording studio, television specials, and personal appearances. The authentic concert recreation marks a return to the era of Las Vegas glitz and glamour that the singer made famous.
Anderson moved to Las Vegas from Detroit at the age of 22 and got his start performing with Nancy Sinatra as a singer in her show at the Sahara Hotel and Casino. When Sinatra took him with her for a performance on the “The Merv Griffin Show,” Griffin discovered his ability to recreate the voices of others, a skill that made him a regular on nearly every talk and variety show in the country. Anderson went on to have his own showroom in Las Vegas for more than a decade and in 2002 was inducted into The Casino Legends Hall of Fame.
