Tom Burlinson started appearing on our televisions in the late seventies but his big break came in the early eighties with the massive success of the movie, The Man from Snowy River.
He’s performed in a variety of stage productions and even been a judge for a number of seasons on Australia’s Got Talent.
He was recently named Australia’s Most Outstanding Club Performer of the Year and Vocal Performer of the Year at the 2012 Annual ACE Awards.
He’s in town for his new show, Now We’re Swingin’.
Come fly with Tom Burlinson and a fabulous band of top musicians as Tom salutes the masters of vocal swing: Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr, and Bobby Darin. Also celebrating the swing superstars of today – Harry Connick Jr, Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams.
Following on from his successful Frank Sinatra shows, Tom has expanded his horizons and his song list to create a feast for lovers of swing, including Sway, Just in Time, Beyond the Sea, L-O-V-E, Birth of the Blues, The Way You Look Tonight, Ain’t That a Kick in the Head? and Feeling Good. It also features Sinatra classics such as I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Summer Wind, That’s Life and Mack the Knife.
