Mark Tremonti, rocker and founding member for Creed, Alter Bridge and Tremonti, takes the Stage at The Saban Theatre for a special, inspiring and heart-warming performance.
The lights go down. Familiar horns pipe up from a world-class orchestra as piano twinkles like the jackpot lights on a winning slot machine. Then, the voice kicks in. It has all of the smoky splendor those first few notes hinted at, but it ain’t Ol’ Blue Eyes. In a tailored suit with microphone in hand, it’s Mark Tremonti. The GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum musician sounds just as at home paying homage to the catalog of Frank Sinatra as he does fronting Tremonti or shredding his soul out as the guitarist for Alter Bridge and Creed. Moreover, he’s doing it for a reason that’d make the Chairman of the Board proud. Accompanied by surviving members of Sinatra’s band as well as various top-notch players, Tremonti cut 14 classics for Tremonti Sings Sinatra, which he gifted to the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) as part of his new organization Take A Chance For Charity. 100% of the album’s proceeds will go to NDSS and their work with people with developmental disabilities.
It’s Tremonti like you’ve never heard him on perhaps the most important record of his career thus far…
“I’ve always loved singing Frank Sinatra songs,” he reveals. “One night, I found an old video of him performing ‘The Song Is You’ from 1944. It took my love for Frank Sinatra and his music to a whole new level. It made me study how he got his start. I read all of the books, and I watched all of the movies. I wanted to do something with it. I spent countless hours singing his songs and studying the technique and I started feeling really good about my progress. That led to me trying to figure out what else I could do with this knowledge. This was so different from anything I had ever done before, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. When we found out about our daughter Stella’s Down Syndrome diagnosis, the stars aligned. My obsession with Sinatra had its reason. He raised more than a billion dollars for charity. Beneath the cool and calm persona, there was a big heart. Doing this charity in his name felt like it was meant to be. I decided to do this record to raise funds for families and individuals with Down Syndrome. Now, I have a new purpose for the rest of my life.”
The project held a much greater gravity than anything else Tremonti had ever done. He pitched his manager Tim Tournier, who was all-in. In what he calls “another stars aligning moment,” Tournier actually took lessons from Sinatra guitarist Dan McIntyre [Sinatra Jr., Della Reese, Vic Damon]. McIntyre linked Tremonti and Tournier with Sinatra’s own band leader Mike Smith [Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr.]. They proved Tremonti’s commitment and vocal chops.
Sold on Tremonti’s voice, they were granted rare approval from The Frank Sinatra Estate to move forward. And they moved forward in style. Tremonti bought a tailored suit and hopped a plane to Chicago for three sessions in 2021 led by Smith and McIntyre. They would be joined by a cohort of A-list musicians whose credits span everyone from Sinatra (of course), Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, Billy Joel, Barbra Streisand, and Barry Manilow to Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, and Buddy Rich.
Well, it is just the beginning. Tremonti Sings Sinatra serves as the inaugural project for his new Take A Chance For Charity movement. So far, 100 million dollars has been raised for charity.
