He has starred in several films and portrayed some truly intimidating characters, but on Saturday actor -- and LI native -- Robert Davi will be demonstrating a different side of his skill set as he brings a bit of "Ol’ Blue Eyes" to East Meadow.
Raised in Huntington and educated at Seton Hall High School in Patchogue, Davi has had some memorable movie roles playing heavies -- such as bad guy Jake Fratelli (“The Goonies”), crime kingpin and James Bond adversary Franz Sanchez (“License To Kill”) and the daunting Special Agent Johnson (“Die Hard”) -- but as it turns out, Davi is also a classically trained singer, and on Saturday, July 19, he'll be returning to LI to deliver a free concert.
Taking place at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park, the show starts at 7 p.m. and will see Davi performing music made famous by iconic singer Frank Sinatra, as well as other popular standards from the early half of the 20th century. Admission is free, and the event will also feature sets from comedian Dave Konig and pianist Svetlana Smolina; for more information visit nassaucountyny.gov.
