INTERVIEW: A Most Unusual Suspect for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival

The theme of this year’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival is “Not Your Usual Suspects” and when I questioned Robert Davi on what is uniquely different about Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance he told me when you consider his background he’ll have no trouble fitting the festival’s theme. Then he explained what he meant, by listing some of the amazing highlights of his working life…and I was blown away.

Setting aside Davi’s accomplished music history for a moment, what other performer in the 2014 Adelaide Cabaret Festival can claim he or she was a friend of Frank Sinatra’s, fought James Bond, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenneger, Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone and Mel Gibson and has killed over eighty-eight serial killers? What’s more, Davi has starred in several TV series, taken Catherine Zeta Jones for a boat ride, been friends with Mickey Rourke for over thirty years and had ice cream in Madrid with Marlon Brando. Life has been full on for this performer, to say the least!
