CARROLLTON, Ky. (February 2013) – After completing each performance of his Frank Sinatra tribute show, Matt Snow is able to truly say, “I Did It My Way.” For several decades, Snow has been singing the music and portraying the life of a musical legend.
Known as The Cincinnati Sinatra, Snow performs in appropriate attire with a professional sound system. He has performed all over the country as a full-time entertainer and all ages attend his tribute shows.
He will bring his Sinatra tribute show to Carrollton’s Gen. Butler State Resort Park Conference Center on Feb. 9 for a dinner theater. A Valentine’s-themed dinner is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. with the performance to follow. Tickets can be purchased for $40 per person at the Lodge front desk up until Noon on Friday, Feb. 8. A cash bar will be available.

Snow said the best part of his job is his “clients and fans.” A bonus is “getting paid for doing what you love to do.”
Snow doesn’t prefer any one particular period of Sinatra’s musical career. “I like different periods for different reasons, but he did his best work in the ‘50s and ‘60s,” said Snow, 57.
He usually performs one-hour show sets encompassing the career of Frank Sinatra, and touching on the major songs of Sinatra’s friends: Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin and others in the same genre of music. Snow said “I also work with my wife, Patti, who does Marilyn Monroe. I work with other artists who do Elvis, Judi Garland, Nancy Sinatra, Patsy Cline, etc.”
Originally from Cincinnati, Snow has a large repertoire of more than 300 songs. He sings the vocal part during a playback of the orchestral soundtrack of the songs, making it sound like the original recording.
Snow does a series of Sinatra performances that are offered only through Patti Warner Productions.
The audience is taken on a musical journey through Sinatra’s entire career, from the music he was singing when he began in the Early Years of 1939-1950, his Comeback years in the 1950s, the Very Good Years of the 1960s and after a brief retirement, the Final Curtain Show chronicles Sinatra’s career up until his death in 1998. Also offered are a Patriotic show, a Christmas/Holiday show, and shows by Frank’s Pals.
Snow began his singing career in June 1971 at the Old Saloon in Kenwood, Ohio, and the Madiera Manor Hunt Room. He has gone on to sing to millions of people in a variety of venues and is well known for his ability to engage and interact with audiences.
“Personally, I love Frank Sinatra,” said Tanya Supplee, Program Services Supervisor for Gen. Butler State Resort Park. “Since the Dinner Theater themes have been centered around tribute artists and bands, I started researching for Frank Sinatra artists.” She found Snow and knew he was the perfect performer for the February dinner theater program.
“A man in a black suit, singing silky smooth love songs... Where else would you want to be but reliving songs that will never be sung again by the master himself, Frank Sinatra?” Supplee said.
Snow is unique, she said, in that “he is doing this as a full-time entertainer, and has performed all over the country, along with being featured at a spectacular series of shows in Las Vegas.” Snow is the longest consecutively-performing Frank Sinatra Tribute Artist around.
An online testimonial to Snow’s professionalism by Gary McCormick, General Manager of the Historic Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant in Berea, Ky., said Snow’s performance, “had a wonderful variety, pace and great energy. He is a well seasoned professional, and has a great voice and transitions from one character to the next easily. A thoroughly enjoyable and affordable entertainment experience. I highly recommend him.”
