The Rat Pack Is Back

Britain’s longest running tribute to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr is back on Sunday 22 July with the fabulous Don Hunt Swing Band. Don is no stranger to the Rat Pack having played on shows featuring the real Sammy Davis Jnr, while working as Bruce Forsyth’s MD for over 35 years. 

Frank (David Alacey), Sammy (Des Coleman) & Dean (Paul Drakeley) take you on a trip to the strip in Las Vegas to the Sands hotel where they performed all the classics. The hit show perfectly captures not only the music and comedy of the original legends, but also the personalities of the stars who ruled the entertainment world of Las Vegas. In fact, Nancy Sinatra commented that David Alacey’s recording of the song “New York New York” was “too close to my father’s recording”. 

The trio’s talent for accurately recreating the magic of the original Rat Pack has led them to perform at a Royal Command Performance for HRH The Princess Royal and at the Round House in London for none other than President Clinton. With such high profile fans this is sure to be a great night, so don’t miss this opportunity to join the Kings of Cool with their swinging band and special guests such as Bobby Darin and The Vegas Showgirls for a unique night – Vegas style!
