The Ratpack Tribute Show Essex
The hit show ‘The Rat Pack is Back’ perfectly captures not only the wonderful music and comedy of the original legends, but also the remarkable personalities of the stars who truly ruled the entertainment world. The Rat Pack is Back is now Britain’s longest running tribute to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr. In 2004 The Ratpack Tribute Show were honored to perform for HRH The Princess Royal at a Royal Command Performance and recently appeared in front of 35,000 people with their Big Band as part of the VE Day celebrations.
David Alacey’s outstanding production ‘The Rat Pack Is Back’ accurately recreates the legendary performances of the pre-eminent entertainers of their time, together on stage and features Britain’s best tributes to the fabulous originals. They can be backed on playback (Fantastic backing tracks recorded with a swinging live big band) or by the swinging Don Hunt band. Mr Hunt has also served as Bruce Forsyth’s musical director for over thirty years and during an amazing career has held the same role for the likes of Anthony Newley, Bing Crosby and even the real Sammy Davis Jnr. Many sizes of band are available, from a quartet to a 20 piece orchestra, and you have the option to choose the band appropriate for your event.
‘The Rat Pack Is Back’ includes all of the hit songs made popular by the legendary performers such as “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head”, “The Lady Is A Tramp”, “My Way”, “Mr Bojangles” and of course, ‘New York New York’. These are performed with Amazing Accuracy and to achieve this, the producers found the very best tribute artists for the roles of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr. These guys not only sing like their heroes, they physically resemble them on stage, share their unique mannerisms and even talk like they are at the Sands taking part in the summit.
David Alacey who also devised the show, plays Frank Sinatra and after working with the Vegas Legend – Buddy Greco, Buddy was moved to say that “This Guy Really is Sinatra” – quite a complement! but even this did not come close to the comment by Frank’s daughter Nancy who said that David’s recording of “New York New York” with a 35 piece orchestra for a new Atari PC game was “too close to my father’s recording” It really doesn’t get better than that!
Des who plays Sammy Davis Jnr, was seen by millions for four years as Lenny in “Eastenders” for the BBC and can now be seen working as a presenter for “The One Show” again for The BBC and Andrea who like his hero is also Italian, was a “Stars In Their Eyes” finalist as Dean Martin for Granada TV in 2000 and since then has worked all over the world as Dino.
However, it is not just the three principle characters of The Ratpack Tribute Show that make it such a success. There is also a larger cast available for the full Rat Pack Vegas Experience. Even more glamour is added to the show when the likes of Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand or Nancy Sinatra join Frank and the gang on stage.
So Don’t miss out on the chance to join the Kings of Cool with their fabulous Big Band and special guests and The Vegas Showgirls for a unique night – Vegas style!
