  • Jabez S. Hardin Performing Arts Center

When Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli first heard Mark Randisi sing, he believed he was listening to a recording of Frank Sinatra.  That;s a common response.  Says Mark, "I'm flattered when people say I sound like Sinatra, even though I'm being myself.  I developed a love for the music, and I respect those who created it."  Close your eyes or turn your head and you'll swear the voice you hear is that of the original Chairman of the Board--but it's Mark Randisi, keeping the classic sound and style of Sinatra alive,

Come dressed in your favorite 40's attire and walk the Red Carpet.
