					                        Barbra and Frank, The Concert That Never Was..

              A Sensational tribute to the Voices of the Century, Sinatra and Streisand

            Sharon Owens as Barbra Streisand and Sebastian Anzaldo as Frank Sinatra

                                            Show Description

  It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same
                                          stage...until now!
They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate recording
sessions, but it‟s tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and
Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour.
Just imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their onstage banter
have been friendly or a bit snippy?
In the Las Vegas Hit show, “Barbra and Frank”, the rapport of these two 20th century icons is
immediately prevalent. “As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally
memorable.”
“The Concert That Never Was…” includes segments in which Streisand and Sinatra create
masterful duets of “Somewhere”, “Something Stupid” and “New York New York”.
A highlight of the show is a delicate blending of two of their signature songs as Sinatra croons
verses from “It Was A Very Good Year” intertwined with Streisand‟s memorable “The Way We
Were”.
Today, Sharon and Sebastian captivate audiences world wide with their originally self produced
Las Vegas show that brings laughter, tears and joy to every person watching. Sebastian‟s
crooning sounds of Sinatra bring “memories” to an audience who remember the late great “ol‟
blue eyes” himself. While the uncanny looks of Sharon brings out the Funny Girl herself,
Streisand, does it the only way she knows how…Her Way.

What critics are saying:“...a gem of a show.” “Sharon becomes Streisand to the point that you forget
you are watching tribute status.” “Sebastian is the Sinatra in his hey day...Confident, cocky, and well, one
word describes the man...Swingin!!” - Nightmoves/Call Back
 “If one closes the eyes and just listens, you would swear the actual person is on stage...
    - Heard Around Town/Las Vegas Leasure Guide
 “The tribute artists sing beautifully, which leaves the audience wondering whether the real
   stars could have done an even better job...”
 “...Owens’ stunning resemblance to Barbra Streisand in both voice and appearance...”
“...Anzaldo resembles and sounds like a young, handsome Frank Sinatra...”
   - Showbiz Weekly
“Sharon Owens is a dead ringer for a young Streisand, both in looks and in voice, even the nose.”
“Anzaldo has the Sinatra swagger...he immerses himself in the character.”
 “When you reach a point in watching such a show that for a moment you actually believe
   they are whom they are performing as, it really sends a chill up your spine.”
“...thumbs up to Bob Vanucci, President of the Riviera, for bringing in this show to Las Vegas.”
   - Al Sande/K-NEWS Radio
                                       Sebastian Anzaldo
Originally hailing from Omaha, Sebastian grew up in a musical family (his father a sax player
and later a talent agent, his mother a singer). He started playing drums and singing at age 11.
Sebastian‟s passion for jazz led him to New York, compliments of The National Endowment For
The Arts. The next year, he headed to the opposite coast to make his fame and fortune in L.A.,
where he played professionally for 14 years. He then relocated to The Entertainment Capitol Of
The World, Las Vegas, where he discovered his knack for doing “Frank”. With a dedication to
perfecting the art of Sinatra, everything was in place and Sebastian began doing one corporate
event after another. As word got out that there was a new „Chairman‟ in town, he got the call to
star in „The Tribute To The Rat Pack‟ currently running at The Greek Isle. This in turn led to his
current show - headlining with Sharon Owens as Barbra Streisand in the wonderful “Barbra &
Frank, The Concert That Never Was...” at the Riviera. Sebastian debuted his Sinatra tribute in
the summer of 2007 on the ABC hit show, The Next Best Thing, where he came in 2 nd to none
other than Elvis!

                                           Sharon Owens
Sharon born in St. Pete Florida always dreamed of being on stage. When her father passed away
at her early age of 20, she decided to follow her dream. She began touring all over the world as a
singer/ dancer with American Entertainment Productions opening for acts such as the Letterman,
the Mandrell sisters, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn and many more country acts. Although
performing was Sharon‟s dream, so was getting an education. Sharon earned her Bachelor of
Arts degree in Humanities and Vocal Music from the University of South Florida, two Summers
in Cambridge University, England and her Master‟s in Education from Chapman University. In
1990, she continued to work her way through college by singing/dancing at Busch Gardens, Sea
World and Disney World. Sharon‟s career as a Barbra Streisand Impersonator/Tribute artist
began in 1992, when Sharon moved to Los Angeles where she began singing Streisand in dinner
theaters and cabaret night clubs. Her uncanny resemblance and vocal ability to sing Streisand,
started her career as a Legends performer. Sharon turned to television where she was crowned a
winner of the hit TV show on Fox called “Performing As…” She appeared on TV once again in
the 2007 ABC show, “The Next Best Thing”. Her national success has created a whirl wind of
Barbra fans waiting to see Sharon‟s famous tribute. Since her TV success, she has been seen on
Access Hollywood, Extra, Entertainment Tonight, TV Guide and People and even paid a visit to
the Family Feud.
                     Together…The Duo…”Spaghetti and Matzo Balls”
The Barbra and Frank team, Sharon and Sebastian, have graced many stages, beautiful exotic
places and have met famous as well as very charitable and giving audiences. They have an on
going show on the Las Vegas strip at the Riviera Hotel and Casino running for a very strong 4
years now. Their world wide tours include Florida 2006 and 2008, Hong Kong October 2006,
Australia March 2008, Canada, May 2006, Caribbean, November 2006, Mid West January 2006.
They have performed for many Special Events in both Theaters and Corporate Events. One very
memorable show was the Rainbow Room, New York City 67 Floor of the Rockefeller Plaza
2006. They have “cruised” the seas on the Queen Mary, Holland America, Regent Cruise lines
and the Royal Caribbean. Some very important clients include Macy‟s, McDonalds, Toyota,
Merle Norman, Nordstrom, Cox Communications, Auto Trader.com and IBM. Recently, they‟ve
charted their show for the Pops Symphony Orchestra‟s and Theaters for Macon Georgia
Symphony, Largo Theater, Tampa Bay Performing Arts, Regent Theater, Boston and many
more.
Both talented performers hit TV land big time in the ABC Hit 2007 summer show “The Next
Best Thing”. Not taking it too seriously, that they must compete against one another, both made
it to the top 10 finals. Another memorable TV moment was their ABC Duet debut singing,
“Witchcraft” together on stage as if the real Streisand and Sinatra were appearing together on a
classic 60‟s TV special. Sebastian came in 2 nd to none other than Elvis! With a fantastic TV
performance, he blew away the competition. Some of their combined TV and Print accolades are
“The Next Best Thing”, “Performing As…”, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, People
Magazine, TV guide and the Family Feud.

Today, Sharon and Sebastian captivate audiences world wide with their originally self produced
Las Vegas show that brings laughter, tears and joy to every person watching. Sebastian‟s
crooning sounds of Sinatra bring “memories” to an audience who remember the late great “Ol‟
Blue Eyes” himself. While the uncanny looks of Sharon brings out the Funny Girl herself,
Streisand, does it the only way she knows how…Her Way.
But between who…the Chairman or the Diva, the Voice or the Nose, is going to close the show?
Together, they bring audiences to their feet with Music and Memories that only these
Two Legendary Icons can.
