ECHOING the casual croonability of his heroes, Plymouth's answer to Michael Buble, Michael Campari, returns to the Queens Arms on the Barbican on Sunday night.
Michael, who has performed on all manner of prestigious stages and at festivals including Glastonbury, still says the Queen's Arms is his favourite gig.
You can expect some of the big Sinatra favourite numbers from his debut album Swingin' On A Star, such as I've Got The World On A String and You Make Me Feel So Young.
Plus there will be the softer Buble arrangement of All Of Me and his interpretations of classic female vocal tracks, including Fever by Peggy Lee.

"When I was 17 I went into a record shop and bought a Julie London album," says Michael, "and I've been drawn to this style of female vocalists ever since.
"That got me into Ella, Astrud Gilberto, Aretha Franklyn – and I've always been interested in taking female songs and reinterpreting them."
What A Difference A Day Makes is another preferred choice of Michael's – best known in the Dinah Washington version.
"Such big phrases on that one, it's the most demanding in terms of breathing and phrasing."
However, two of Michael's top choices were performed by great male artists.
Can't Take My Eyes Off You – the Andy Williams classic – and his signature tune, Dean Martin's That's Amore.
"I always close my live gigs with Amore," says Michael "that's an absolute favourite."
