Vancouver resident, Rick Valiant stepped onto the stage in 2008 for the very first time after he made a sudden revision in his life.
Entertaining people while introducing the classic music from 50's was his dream for decades and now he has been proving that the stage is where he belongs.
With his Singing Duet Partner, they just completed a 7 week tour in Brazil, performing 11 shows in 11 city's on the East coast of Brasil
Rick has represented Vancouver music in the States (Las Vegas, New York) and brought home 2nd prize, when he attended the Hoboken Sinatra Idol Contest in 2011. He can be seen performing mainly in private venues, senior homes along with his own event, Songs of Sinatra. This is a tribute act he pays to Frank Sinatra, however, he doesn't remain on the stage alone; Rick offers and shares it with the fellow tribute singers / impersonators to add variety to the show. This particular show has had its base in the Columbia Theatre, New Westminster since the time, when the theatre re opened in 2011.
Ricks' events are well-known for a “cabaret-style”, where the music is accompanied by the spoken word, often entertaining, where singers share their moments on the stage and their memories with the audience.
Rick collaborates with other local theatres (such as Kay Meek Centre, Inlet Theatre, Rio Theatre, the Cascade and Edgewater Casino).
A tribute to the Greatest voice of all time, The Chairman of the Board, Ole Blue eyes. On June 16-2011 I sang in Frank's home town Hoboken,New Jersey in the Frank Sinatra Idol Competition and placed second.
I can perform with Big Band back tracks or with a full 9-12pc orchestra, based on your needs and budget, either way I will work with you to satisfy your requirements.
Songs of Sinatra, a tribute also has access to several other tribute artists, and we can offer a full tribute show. Elvis, Buddy Holly,Buble', Cher, Tina, and Johnny Cash.
“SONGS OF SINATRA a tribute” / “GOLDEN CLASSICS via MIA”, musical act..
...Is consistent of the life and stage partners, RICK VALIANT AND MIA ZIMMERMAN. Their history goes back to 2011, when Mia was looking for a tribute artist as a guest for her TV show called ViaMia. She not only found a good guest, but also her soul mate that is part of her life on the stage as much as in her life.
Rick and Mia travel to entertain their fans. They are known on the domestic ground, and also performed in Las Vegas. They recently returned from a two month tour in Brazil, where they won their fans' heart fully!
Their home stage is at the Columbia Theatre, New Westminster, BC. They become recognized as well interactive with each other and with the audience between the songs. The sense of humor sparkles during the spoken word and the people call them also “a comedy / parody act.”
Both performers have a colorful musical path behind them and they are looking forward to bringing it to even more interesting stages ?
