Cary Hoffman’s Love Letter to Ol’ Blue Eyes {0}

Attention: Entertainment, news reporters
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 17, 2014

Clovis, NM – Direct from his two year off-Broadway hit run in NYC, revisit the sound of Frank Sinatra with Cary Hoffman’s one-man musical concert, My Sinatra, Thursday, March 27, 7 PM at Marshall Auditorium.

Hoffman’s celebrated off-Broadway hit is now a biographical, often hilarious, and poignant one-man musical concert about his admiration of his hero, Frank Sinatra. His voice is so uncannily similar to Sinatra’s that few can tell them apart.

“Hoffman sings Sinatra Dead On!” said The New York Times.

While growing up as an introverted Jewish kid in Queens, New York, in the 1950s, Hoffman spent countless hours in his bedroom trying to find the musical key to the Frank Sinatra sound and attitude.

“It’s a story of someone trying to be someone else his entire life,” the self-critical performer told The Jewish Week, explaining that Sinatra became a father figure for him after his real father and grandmother were killed in a car crash when Hoffman was seven years old. “It was my search for Dad; I wanted to be in his world, because it was so much better than my world.”

Growing up fatherless with three musician uncles that had played on some of Sinatra’s greatest recordings, Hoffman’s mother wanted him to become a businessman, but he wanted to become something else entirely, Frank Sinatra.

Hoffman has had a varied and extremely successful career in the music and entertainment industry. He has written two Top 20 country hits, composed well-known advertising jingles, opened a comedy club, was an executive producer of the TNT series “Men of a Certain Age,” and managed the career of R&B singer Luther Vandross. However, My Sinatra reveals that his dream remains alive, having performed the music of Sinatra for the past eight years in over 55 performing arts centers around the world.

“Sinatra transcended the music,” he said. “He was free.”

Join us for a mesmerizing concert of incredible Sinatra songs and stories about Sinatra and the hilarious reasons for Hoffman’s lifelong obsession with Ol’ Blues Eyes in My Sinatra, presented at Marshall Auditorium as part of the Cultural Arts Series on Thursday, March 27. The show starts at 7 PM. Tickets are $20.00 general admission and $15.00 for seniors/military/students. Tickets may be purchased at the CCC Cashiers’ Window, Clovis/Curry Chamber of Commerce or the evening of the performance, pending availability.  Brought to you by Clovis Community College, The Citizens Bank of Clovis, and Watson Toyota.
