"How do you start to take on the persona of such a big icon like Frank Sinatra?"

Classically trained, Jay has sung since being very small and has always loved the sound of swing music which he grew up with.

After many comments over the years that his vocals are uncannily close to that of Frank Sinatra, Jay dedicated a lot of time studying Frank Sinatra down to the finest detail. He researched through many books and hundreds of hours of Frank Sinatra’s live performances, taking careful note of the Frank Sinatra style, phrasing and also the slightest gesture and mannerism, Keen to become the leading Frank Sinatra Tribute.

Jay billed as A Touch of Sinatra at the Corn Exchange Theatre in Berkshire in 2001. He then went on to perform for many theatre, corporate and private functions and is fast becoming known as the voice of Frank Sinatra, performing for the likes of Royal Bank of Scotland, Tesco, Coopers & Lybrand, BSKYB to name a but a few.

In front of an audience of a thousand celebrities Jay performed on the beach outside the Burj al Arab Hotel.

Jay has performed at:

RMS Queen Mary II, First Group Theatre – Dubai, The Alamo-Marine Beach Resort – Dubai, The Playhouse Theatre – Weston-Super-Mare, Talk of the Town Live – Milton Keynes,  Aghios Gordis Beach Resort – Corfu, The Meridian Hotel -Monte Carlo, Gibson Hall – London, Telford International Arena, Madejski Stadium – Reading, Chewton Glen Hotel – Dorset…

The list goes on!

In 2006 Jay was honoured to be asked to perform as Frank Sinatra at the Manchester United Opus Book Launch. In front of an audience of a thousand celebrities Jay performed on the beach outside the Burj al Arab Hotel.

Jay has completed a successful run in the show The Rat Pack over in the Arab Emirates and Jay is looking to tour again with this show in 2010–11. As if this wasn’t enough in between his tour dates, Jay is travelling the rest of the world in other theatre, private and corporate functions with his hit show Sinatra at the Sands.
