Since graduating from the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in 1976, Tom Burlinson has worked consistently in all the major forms of entertainment, both in Australia and overseas.
In 1981 Tom was cast in the title role in the feature film The Man From Snowy River. It was an enormous box office success, earned Tom an AFI nomination for best actor and led to him being cast in a succession of leading roles in Australian and international films over the next several years.
In 1991 Tom sang the voice of the young Frank Sinatra in the Warner Brothers mini-series Sinatra, produced by Frank's daughter Tina. This was his first professional singing engagement.
Most recently Tom has hosted the television series Animal Hospital for the Nine Network before appearing in a series of open air concerts at Taronga Zoo, Sydney, in A Tribute to Frank Sinatra with the Australian Army Band. This led to the creation of the stage show Frank: the Sinatra Story in Song, in which Tom performs with a sixteen piece big band, recreating the music of Sinatra through the decades.
After the success of Frank it became clear that there would be an on-going demand for Tom and the musicians to provide entertainment for and charity and corporate events. This led to the birth of Tom Burlinson: Swingin' Sinatra Style, in which Tom and the group present a selection of songs from the show; essentially Sinatra's greatest hits. Tom can be accompanied by a fabulous 16-piece big band for larger rooms or outdoor events or you could have musical arrangements for an eight-piece ensemble if space is limited.
The songs you can choose from include the magical Come Fly With Me, Fly Me To The Moon, I've Got You Under My Skin, Luck be a Lady Tonight, New York, New York and many, many more.
Delight in the magic of Tom Burlinson and Frank Sinatra.
