It's coming to the Detroit Opera House on June 16. 


Long before he became the embodiment of Sinatra, Bob Anderson came from Warren and graduated from Center Line High School.


Anderson joined Stateside to tell us about the show, and how it came to be.


Listen above to hear how he got his start in Vegas, what originally drew him to doing impressions of Frank Sinatra, and how Sinatra reacted to Anderson's act when he performed for him live.
