“Sinatra is back at The Sands with Count Basie in 1966, as Alacey sings and swings with the style and panache of Ol’ Blue Eyes in his glorious prime” - John Judge (The Daily Telegraph)

“When she came into the studio we were knocked out by how much Charley actually looked like her, but then when she started singing it was as if Marilyn Marilyn Monroe really was in the room with us” Sunny & Shay – BBC London

The show has been given the seal of approval by the late legendary Las Vegas star Buddy Greco, who was a friend of both Sinatra and Marilyn. He was so impressed by the salute to his friends, that he wrote a brand new arrangement of “My Heart Belongs To Daddy” for Charley and recorded a duet of the ultimate saloon song “One For My Baby” with David. Both of these rare gems can be heard in this performance. The swinging sounds of The Mac Shone quartet add even more style to this meeting of showbiz Royalty – not be missed!

“His Recording of The Theme from New York New York for Atari Games is too close for comfort”
The Sinatra Estate

“My Goodness David, you have found a real winner there - Charley has the look and sound of my dear friend Marilyn, I was immediately taken back to those wonderful days at Lake Tahoe”
Las Vegas Legend Buddy Greco

“Alacey seemed to have somehow imbibed the very essence of ‘ole blue eyes’ before coming on stage. His performance was breathtaking - seriously! The tone, the modulation and the rhythm in his voice throughout the evening was genuine Sinatra. His masculine charm was also apparent in his pristine characterisation and it was with effortless charisma he strolled into the audience and sang I’ve Got You Under My Skin while chatting and engaging with the ladies - just like the icon”
Sarah Gudgeon - The Edinburgh Herald & Post

“Some Like it Hot with This Incredible Marilyn Monroe Lookalike”
Isobel Dickinson – The Daily Star

“David Alacey not only looked like Frank but he had the drawl, the wit and boy could he nail a tune. We may never see such greats as Frank Sinatra again in our lifetime but the good news is that as long as such talented impersonators continue to exist, we may not need to”.
Chris Longhurst - Uxbridge Gazette

“In my work as a music reviewer I have seen many Sinatra impersonators but David Alacey is the cream of the crop. The overall effect is that audiences are left spellbound many believing they are actually watching the real thing.. If you get the opportunity to see and hear David Alacey as ‘The Voice’ don’t miss it”.
