The Bob Anderson Story

The greatest singing impressionist of all time

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.

So, with what little money he had left, Anderson parked his old Volkswagen in the back of the hotel and went inside for a drink. While sitting at the bar, Anderson struck up a conversation with a journalist named Mark Tan, a Las Vegas writer and critic. Tan invited Anderson to join him at Nancy Sinatra’s rehearsal, with the Everly Brothers.

During that rehearsal The Everly Brothers, who were to perform that night with Nancy and sing duets with her, got into an argument with each other and walked off stage.
After Mark Tan told Anderson that Nancy couldn’t find anyone who could get there in time to open her show, Anderson told his new friend that he was a singer. After Tan stopped laughing, he said, “Go and tell her”. Anderson walked up to the stage and said, “Hey, I’m a singer, I can do whatever you need.”
Billy Strange, Nancy’s producer and conductor, who also produced a number of her father’s works, said, “Give the kid a mic, this might be funny.” So they kicked off a song, Anderson sang it and an hour after that successful audition, Anderson was in a limousine with Nancy Sinatra on his way to Bob’s Tuxedo Shop to get a suit for that night’s show.
That morning, Anderson pulled into the Sahara Hotel and saw the name Frank Gorshin on the marquis. That afternoon, looking down from his top floor suite that used to belong to The Everly Brothers, he watched as his name was put on that very same marquis.
Four days later, Nancy brought the young singer with her to the Merv Griffin show. After introducing Anderson to Griffin, Merv asked him if he would sing a song. Anderson was not doing impressions at the time. He sang “If”, written by David Gates, and received a standing ovation on his first National Television appearance. Needless to say…Merv was impressed.

Approximately eight hours after Bob Anderson walked into the Sahara Hotel in cutoffs and a t-shirt and pretty much broke, he was opening the main showroom of the Sahara Hotel and Casino with Nancy Sinatra!
