This tribute returns you to the glory days of the Sands Hotel in Vegas as a trio of friends - Frank Sinatra (Gary Corsello), Dean Martin (Steve Apple) and Sammy Davis Jr. (Nicholas Brooks) - perform together as only this show biz powerhouse threesome can.
Review from L.A.Splash.com:
Direct from Vegas..."The Rat Pack." takes the audience to the mythic time of the early 1960's recreating the legendary era and experience of a "Rat Pack" show. The song titles alone evoke the performers of the era: "Luck be a Lady." "The Lady is a Tramp,""Come Fly With Me," I've Got You Under My Skin'" "Everybody Loves Somebody'" "Ain't that a Kick in the Head," That's Amore," "What Kind of Fool Am I?," "That Old Black Magic," "Me and My Shadow," and the finale, Sammy Davis, Jr's signature song, "Birth of the Blues".
Steve Apple truly has the voice and playfulness of Dean Martin, Gary Corsello is very believable as Frank Sinatra, and Nicholas Brooks has expertly taken on the mannerisms of Sammy Davis Jr. All three performers have done an excellent job researching and embodying these legendary men. If you blur your eyes just a little it is easy to believe you've left the 21st century.
