This is Sinatra Tributes feature show!!!
It takes you right back to 1964 with the great music of the Rat Pack era. It was here that Frank Sinatra moved from being the band-singer and crooner of his earlier years, to the dooby-dooby-doo Chairman of the Board sound that we all have come to know and love. It is also the result of three other individuals, without which we would not have this Rat Pack sound. While Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn wrote many of these great songs, it was Nelson Riddle who arranged them for the performance style that you instantly recognize as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr.
We will showcase Sinatra's big hits of the time, throw in some Dean Martin, and complete the effect with the funny quips, trivia, and the Rat Pack's "salad bar" of"Daniels Over Ice" served to the audience from the stage.
Everyone loves the Rat Pack and this show is perfect for just about any venue or event whether it be a wedding, a conference, a benefit, or just for the hell of it! It works great for a dinner show at country clubs too.
The Lucky Few is the name of the generation between the Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers. These are folks born between 1929 and 1945 who came of age during the 50's and 60's. They are "lucky" because they grew up in relative prosperity after World War II and they are "few" because it is the shortest generational time span with the fewest members in the cohort.
But to me, they are lucky because they were able to experience first hand the wonderful music of the big bands in the 40's, the crooners in the 40's and 50's, the birth of Rock 'n' Roll in the 50's, and on into young adulthood with doo-wop, beach music, and Motown. How awesome!!!
This show will take you through a sentimental anthology through the music of the Lucky Few. This is a 75 minute show featuring bits of 50 or so hits from this era .... just enough for that "aaahhhh" moment when you hear each song. It moves fast from song-to-song and features some dialogue along the way to tickle the memories of those who were lucky enough to be there.
This show is perfect for retirement communities, reunions, and more!
