1. Press Release – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Scott Free – The Pink Sinatra Strikes Again - Swing with a Twist!
Award-winning singer Scott Free invites you to, “Come Fly with Me!” when he performs The Pink Sinatra at Brighton’s Festival Fringe 5-27 May.  The outrageous and brilliantly talented Pink Sinatra returns to Brighton after his Australian Festival triumph and sellout shows and four-star awards at Edinburgh’s international festival fringe.  A light-hearted romp through the Sinatra/Rat Pack songbook, together with songs from contemporary artists, the Pink Sinatra puts his unique twist on classic swing/easy-listening tunes.  He’s accompanied by a swingin’ soundtrack and a mystery guest.

Scott says, “Performing Pink Sinatra at Feast Festival, Australia’s largest LGBT arts festival, truly ticked one of my ambitions off the bucket list – performing in a big top circus style tent.  I’ve always believed that performers are all clowns at heart.  Who hasn’t longed to run away with the circus?  In a ‘big top’, with my great swingin’ band (of Adelaide’s hottest musicians) the Pink Pack was so exciting, now I’m bringing the new show, with swingin’ soundtrack to Brighton - can’t wait to see you there!”

Glen Christie at Talkfringe says, “Pink Sinatra is true camp cabaret, full of humour, fun and just a sheer pleasure to listen to – a great night out!”

This new show is woven through with real-life anecdotes, including Scott’s very personal meeting with gay icon and author Quentin Crisp in New York.

The Pink Sinatra made his Australian debut this year at the Slide Cabaret in Sydney, helping raise more than $30,000 for the Australian Flood Relief Benefit, before performing at the Adelaide Fringe.

From soaring opener ‘Feeling Good’ to obligatory finale ‘New York, New York’, Scott sings with heart and charisma. 

Scott says, “These are some of the greatest songs ever written. I don’t want them to be museum pieces, I want to re-interpret them my way, bringing them refreshed and alive to modern audiences. There’s definitely a place in music for real melody and beautiful storytelling lyrics, alongside hiphop and computer generated dance themes – Michael Buble has proved that!  The Pink Sinatra is about great swing music, with loads of fun and humour which anyone who loves the ‘Little Britain’ or ‘Carry On’ films will enjoy – so really broad appeal – to all audiences.”

Scott Free truly engages with his audience.  Every song is a winner.  Leave your inhibitions at the door and you might even find yourself enjoying a twirl on stage with the Pink Sinatra himself (especially if you are an attractive young man…)

You’re sure to get a kick out of the return of the Pink Sinatra.  But don’t just take our word for this unmissable show, come fly with Scott and see what all the fuss is about for yourself.

The Pink Sinatra Strikes Again! – Swing with a Twist!, accompanied by swingin’ soundtrack and special mystery guest, is at Brighton Festival Fringe at Venue 139, The New Steine Hotel from 5-27 May.
