FSWL supporter Robert Davi, who brilliantly portrayed Franz Sanchez in Licence to Kill 1989, gives a free concert (only the second time around) at Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre, Eisenhower Park, New York.

"As FS (Frank Sinatra) would say, 'Koo, Koo.' Wow! I have never heard anyone come this close to Sinatra's sound – and still be himself. Many try, but Robert Davi has the voice, tone, the flavor and the swagger. What a surprise.

He absolutely touched me down to my soul and brought back the essence and soul of 'Ol Blue Eyes himself." - Quincy Jones

About Robert Davi:
While he is recognized as one of film’s best-known tough guys, Robert Davi has been winning the respect and admiration of fans, critics and fellow artists with his expressive singing. His album, Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance, produced by the legendary Phil Ramone, catapulted its way into Billboard magazine’s top ten (#6) traditional jazz chart.

While his Sinatra album and his dynamic live performances may have surprised some of his fans, Davi’s love of music and entertaining began at an early age. At 15, he won First Place in the prestigious New York State School Music Association Solo Competition. As a young adult, he studied under several top vocal teachers including the legendary Tito Gobbi, Dan Ferro of Juilliard, Samuel Margolis (who taught Robert Merrill) and most recently, renowned vocal coach Gary Catona.

In his latest film role, he joins the third installment of the popular franchise The Expendables (in theatres from August 15th). From the memorable villain, Colombian drug lord Frank Sanchez, in the Bond film "Licence to Kill” (voted one of the top Bond villains of all time) to his stand-out performances in “The Goonies,” “Die Hard,” ”Kill the Irishman,” “The Iceman” and many other films to the respected series “Profiler” and ”Stargate: Atlantis,” Davi has appeared in over 100 movies and many television programs. He has garnered praise from critics, directors and co-stars, including Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner, Blake Edwards, John McTiernan, and Paul Verhoeven. He has acted opposite Marlon Brando, Roberto Benigni, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Benicio Del Toro, Danny Glover, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, and Val Kilmer, among others.
