Comox Valley crooner reprises role as Frank Sinatra in Crofton

If you didn’t get to celebrate Ol’ Blue Eyes’ 100th birthday last year, here’s a second chance.

Comox Valley crooner Ralph Barrat returns to the Osborne Bay Pub stage on Sunday, Oct. 15 to reprise his popular Frank Sinatra tribute.

Barrat, whose vocal style is reminiscent of Sinatra, Mel Torme and Michael Buble, says he’ll transport his audience back to the Golden Age of Jazz with such songs as Fly Me to the Moon, New York, New York and Mack the Knife.

And bring your dancing shoes, Barrat advises — it’s a great opportunity to try out the hardwood dance floor in front of the pub’s stage.

Pianist Tom Vickery leads the band’s in-the-pocket trio, with bassist Joey Smith and drummer Ron Joiner.

The performance is part of the weekly Pat’s House of Jazz series, which runs Sundays beginning at 2 p.m. at the pub, 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton, Admission is $15.
