Coming up on November 22 at 2pm, it’s a Really Big Show — Sinatra & Company at the Ames Center in Burnsville. This great night of entertainment, developed in collaboration with Blue Eyes Band leader Todd Matheson and singer Colleen Raye, features the music, humor, and history of the Rat Pack Era. Tim sings songs made famous by Dean Martin, and you’ll also hear him sing Sinatra in his usual masterful way — songs like My Way, Come Fly With Me, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, New York, New York, and many more. The amazing talent of singers Colleen Raye and Debbie O’Keefe will fill out the bill with songs made famous by “girl singers” of the same era — Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, and even Marilyn Monroe. Don’t miss this! Get tickets here!

Tim Patrick, Colleen Raye, and Debbie O’Keefe Sing “You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You”

Tim Patrick, Colleen Raye, and Debbie O’Keefe perform You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You with the Blue Eyes Band. Recorded by Baby Blue Arts, Minneapolis on March 15, 2014.

You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You was written in 1944 by Russ Morgan, Larry Stock, and James Cavanaugh. There have been many versions of this tune recorded over the years, but Dean Martin, of Rat Pack fame, helped make the song famous. Speaking of the Rat Pack, join us this New Year’s Eve for a Great Rat Pack-themed show at the Phipps Theatre in Hudson, Wisconsin! All Details below.

Review of Our New CD, Two Steps Forward!

Checking out the website for TIM PATRICK & HIS BLUE EYES BAND, I found his story about how he came to vocalizing fascinating. Like so many others, he dreamed of singing, but was too unsure of himself. It took a chance sitting in at a club in Minneapolis to give him a taste of being taken seriously by listeners. From that evening, he was hooked, and followed a path that led him to getting a few roles in musical theater productions, making a demo disc for friends and family, having it heard by a professional accompanist who encouraged him, and ultimately led to his forming and fronting his Blue Eyes Band. Two Steps Forward (Self Produced) is the first full album by Patrick and his band, and it is a swinging winner. Patrick is out of the Sinatra school of vocalists. He has a nice baritone, knows how to swing, and sounds like he is having a ball, something that gives energy to his music in a way that is instantly appealing. The program is a mix of standards and originals, with the latter fitting right in with the better-known selections. He is not aiming for high art, but has mastered the art of reaching out to folks who dig sounds that make their feet tap, and will draw many of them out onto a dance floor. Tim Patrick has found his right place in life. www.timpatrickmusic.usJoe Lang, for Jersey Jazz
