Frank. The Man. The Music. at the Woodlands Pavilion | Houston Press

Bob Anderson Channels the Chairman in Sinatra Extravaganza

Under normal circumstances, assuming the identity of another person is a punishable crime. But for Bob Anderson, transforming himself into Frank Sinatra – physically, vocally, and facially – it’s all in an evening’s work.

As video evidence attests, Anderson’s “Frank Sinatra” is scarily accurate. He’ll transport Houston audiences to Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, circa 1970, when Frank. The Man. The Music. comes to the Woodlands Pavilion (with a 31-piece orchestra in tow) on April 6. Interestingly, the real Frank Sinatra was the first national act to ever play the Pavilion back on April 28, 1990.

Bob Anderson has sung with both his own voice and as an impressionist for decades. But here was never a question as to which performer he could base an entire 90-minute show on.

This show is likely headed to Broadway and already was in Las Vegas for a year-long run. Bob Anderson (aka * Frank”) has voraciously studied every nuance of Frank and his performances, and it shows

His voice and mannerisms made him a dead ringer for Ol’ Blue Eyes. I would go back and see this show in a heartbeat.

It was truly amazing. Best show I have ever seen. Bob Anderson actually made me believe that I was at a Frank Sinatra concert. When he walked on stage he looked like Frank Sinatra. His makeup was amazing. His voice, personality and Sinatra demeanor, was accurate to a tee.

“Bob does me better than I do me”
Dean Martin

“Vocally, the most accurate impressionist I’ve ever heard. but he also has his own great sound”
Sammy Davis

“Bob gets some of the best reviews I have ever read”
“Astonishing…he is the best”
Merv Griffin

“As fine a talent as there is in the business”
Tony Bennett

“It’s not unusual…to hear good things about Bob Anderson”
Tom Jones

“A new young impressionist that will kill you”
He will knock you out of your seats”
“I told Bob he’d tear this audience apart and he did”
Johnny Carson

One of the greatest evenings in Bob’s career was the night Frank and Dean caught his show in Atlantic City.

“I started off with Tony Bennett,” Bob recalls, “then Sammy, then Dean, Frank began laughing. They didn’t think I’d have the guts to do Sinatra, but I did and he loved it!”

After the show, Frank invited Bob to sit with him and Dean and then spoke the magic words, “This kid’s got a hell of an act!”

AN AUDIENCE OF more than 2,500  saw a miracle … Frank Sinatra had returned … Well, almost as former Detroiter Bob Anderson, world-class impressionist

Frank: The Man, The Music

It’s been called the most authentic re-enactment of a Sinatra concert – Frank: The Man, The Music is one of the top shows on the Vegas Strip and now it’s coming to the Detroit Opera House.

The Chairman of the Board is played by one of the best singing impressionists in the world: Bob Anderson.

From Nancy to Frank

Frank Sinatra and his music left an indelible mark on Bob Anderson. His story reads like a classic novel.

After three days of driving and sleeping in his old Volkswagen Beetle, a young singer, named Bob Anderson, found himself on the Vegas strip in front of the Sahara Hotel, a place that would change his life almost instantly and forever.

Sinatra impressionist Bob Anderson bringing his act home to Detroit

Tossing off a celebrity caricature isn’t the most difficult thing in the world. With a little practice, Kate McKinnon of “Saturday Night Live” is suddenly Justin Bieber for a fleeting moment of mimicry. Taking the impression further, however, and teasing out an entire nightclub act replete with note-perfect song delivery is a different beast, one that takes true dedication to craft and more than a little talent.
