"Come Fly With Me" ****A Tribute to Frank Sinatra****

Not many vocalists have performed with the most popular big band of all time - The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.

From January 2001 to February 2009, Rob was the featured vocalist for this famous big band. The affiliation has taken this great singer on tour with the Orchestra around the globe and all the way to the 2005 President's Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C.

Rob has been performing live for the past thirty years with his own group as well, and continues to present his high energy performances of "COME FLY WITH ME", A Tribute to Frank Sinatra.

Rob performs the timeless hits of Frank Sinatra!

Rob's show spans the five decades of classic Sinatra, from the days with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra to the Las Vegas show rooms.

Rob's tribute emulates a cabaret setting in the show rooms of the 50s and 60s, where Sinatra gave some of his most memorable performances.

This show moves non-stop with excitement, as Rob performs all of the popular songs made famous by Frank Sinatra.

And when Rob is not singing, his sense of humor will keep you amused throughout his performance.

The orchestra size can range from a seven piece band to a Big Band and up to a full symphony.

This is one show you will not want to miss!

Rob will tell you that it has been his honor and privilege to perform with The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra under the direction of the legendary late Buddy Morrow. Morrow, who performed with Tommy Dorsey, declared that Zappulla's talent, his rich baritone voice, his own style and interpretation of the Great American Songbook, and his prior experiences as a professional, dynamic entertainer, was a perfect match for the great Orchestra.


Rob's Voice and Trumpet - Recorded

Released in June 2009, Rob's CD "You Ought To Be Havin' Fun !" is an exciting concept combining 1960s and 70s pop hits with Rob's full big band sound. When you listen to this CD, you will hear the passion and energy that has been put into this project.

Rob's "Something Makes Me Want To Dance With You" CD was recorded in 2000. His big band was arranged and conducted by Lew Anderson. The songs are by 20th century greats such as Rogers & Hart, Hammerstein, Mercer, and Porter.

"Here's to Frank" is a single that Rob recorded in 2005. This original song was written by Joe Ronan and arranged by Lew Anderson. It pays homage to the voice, the talent, and the legend of Frank Sinatra.
Rob has performed at Birdland in New York City with The Lew Anderson Big Band up until 2006. It was there that he premiered his single, "Here's to Frank", which received great acclaim from the enthusiastic audience at Birdland.


The Trumpet

Rob grew up in Connecticut, where he had big dreams. As a 9-year old, he heard Harry James play the trumpet and the die was cast. Rob studied at the prestigious Hartt School of Music.

After school, he found work as a trumpeter with show bands such as The Barnum and Bailey Circus,
The Box Tops, Lesley Gore and many other well known groups.

His professionalism and talent took him from a jazz and classical trumpeter, theater musician and conductor to performing with big bands and symphony orchestras.

Since 1980 to present, he has toured with several groups, opening for Tower of Power, The Temptations,
The Drifters, The Shirelles, and Little Anthony and the Imperials, to name a few.

As a trumpeter, he can be heard on countless recordings with a variety of bands.

Rob's incredible voice, superb trumpet playing, extraordinary style and showmanship continue to bring him tremendous accolades at major theaters, casinos and various venues throughout the world.
