Okay, imagine you have arrived in Las Vegas, with dreams of lining your pockets with enough money to start up that big car stealing racket you have always wanted. You have just won ten grand on roulette, so you are feeling happy and proceed to order a double martini (shaken not stirred) at the bar. You fall into a big red spongy curved sofa near the front stage. Out the corner of your eye you see a voluptuous tall woman dressed in a slinky silver dress walk across the stage. She pauses and politely introduces for the first time, the one the only MR FRANK BENNETT. A twenty piece orchestra takes chord and a room of winners in particular their wives, go crazy!
Ladies and gentleman, we represent to you the voice of MR FRANK BENNETT. The crowd goes wild with applause..............

Frank has been blessed with a smorgasbord of incredible talent - not only does he possess the extraordinary voice and swanky moves of both Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett - he has also inherited their stylish tuxedos and smooth repartee.

Frank, and a team of industry musicians including a ten piece orchestra, came together to record a cover of Radiohead's Creep in true Vegas ratpack style, and it swings! The single received huge amounts of radio airplay and coupled with numerous television appearances on shows such as Hey Hey it's Saturday, The Midday Show, Recovery and the Footy Show has guaranteed that Frank's current album with be a huge success.

The new album "Five O'Clock Shadow" which was released in November 1996 through Mercury Polygram includes tunes such as: Better Man - Pearl Jam, The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson, With or Without You - U2 and Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chilli Peppers all swung out as only FRANK BENNETT can do.

His live show consists of Frank performing tunes off his album as well as all the Sinatra standards, backed by an eight to an eighteen-piece band.

To see this show live is the next best thing to being in glittering Las Vegas.
