Rat Pack tribute
This show features the music of Sinatra along with hits from Dean Martin such as Ain’t That A Kick In The Head, Sway, That’s Amore, Everybody Loves Somebody, Little Ole Wine Drinker Me etc. Music from the third main Rat Pack member Sammy Davis Jnr is also featured in Mr Bojangles, the Candy Man etc. As with the Sinatra tribute show, this can be as a solo performance or with many sizes of live band.
These options can be tailored to your requirements. Tasteful and appropriate background music in this genre is played during any breaks.
With playback – either a show performance or something a little more discreet (perfect for a drinks reception or over dinner). The backing tracks used are all live recorded original big band arrangements, giving you the feel of having a real band. An hour set or 2 x 45 minute set is usually performed.
With a live band – larger bands or even just a pianist are among the options available, if you were looking for a smaller band you would get a great sound with just a piano, drums, bass and saxophone. An hour, a 2 x 45 minute or 2 x 1 hour set is usually performed.
That was fantastic, what a great voice.
Kevin has the most fantastic voice and he and his band were the icing on the cake and were utterly fabulous… they played their socks off and Kevin sang his heart out and it was stunning. I have had many thank you letters and every one mentions the music .. so THANK YOU!
Just wanted to say what a fantastic night it was, made all the better by Kevin’s outstanding performance and stunning voice – all our guests were in awe. Please pass on our thanks to Kevin for making the night so special.
We’ve had excellent feedback from the client. Kevin was so good – we would usually need to book a much bigger band to create the kind of impact Kevin created with just a small band.
You & the band were fantastic.
