They are joined by former Eastenders star and Central Television’s “Mr Weather” – Des Coleman as Sammy Davis Jnr in the original Rat Pack show, now celebrating its 21st record breaking year.
Together they amaze audiences with their recreation of the music of Sinatra, Martin and Davis, in a fabulous show which brings the style and excitement of the Las Vegas heyday to vivid life.Including all the great hits – My Way, Mr Bojangles, New York New York, Amore, Come Fly With Me! And many more. They are joined by Special Guest Charley Toulan as the iconic Marilyn Monroe, performing the many memorable songs associated with Monroe including: Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend andMy Heart Belongs To Daddy.

To complete a truly memorable intimate evening with legends, the show also features the swinging Buddy Greco trio under the direction of BBC Musical Mac Shone – Memories really are made of this!
“I can honestly say that having toured with these guys, they are as close as anyone will ever get to my dear friends – Frank, Dean and Sammy. At times it was just like being back with my pals at The Sands in the sixties – so much fun and it really doesn’t get any better than that. As for David Alacey – well this guy really is Sinatra – it’s frightening”.
Las Vegas Legend – Buddy Greco
“A fabulous journey back to days of Vegas style and glamour…This production superbly recreates a unique chapter in Entertainment History”
