THE UK's longest-running tribute to the Rat Pack aim to bring the glamour and glitz of Las Vegas to the Black Country next week.
The Rat Pack is Back will be bringing their acclaimed cabaret show featuring the music of legendary performers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior to the Robin 2 at Bilston, on Wednesday February 15 at 8.30pm.
It will be the first outing at the Mount Pleasant venue for the tribute act who have performed in front of former American president Bill Clinton and HRH The Princess Royal (Princess Anne).
The cast comprises former Eastenders actor and One Show regular Des Coleman, who takes the part of Sammy Davis Junior; Paul Drakeley as Dean Martin; and Frank Sinatra is played by David Alacey whose version of New York New York has reportedly been labelled “too close for comfort” by Nancy Sinatra - the daughter of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself.
The singers will be accompanied by Vegas style showgirls and backed by the Don Hunt Swing Band - the main man of which lists working with Sammy Davis Junior himself on two TV specials among his credits.
