Frank, Sammy, and Dean were the epitome of what Las Vegas is all about. Six nights a week you can relive that magic with “The Rat Pack Is Back” at the Copa Room inside the Tuscany Suites & Casino.
This is the only Vegas based show with national touring companies and an award from the “Congress of the United States.” In its 21st smash year, The show has notched over 6,000 performances in 40 states and four foreign countries, playing to over two million fans.
No stranger to long running shows, acclaimed producer Dick Feeney has assembled one of the most talented casts on the Strip. When Chris Jason (Sinatra), Kyle Diamond (Davis Jr.), and Drew Anthony (Martin) hit the stage, the same unique flair that filled the Copa Room at the Sands Hotel in the 60’s and 70’s returns. Each cast member is a star, but when they share the stage for duets and trios, they shine even brighter.
“There are other Rat Packs, but we are the only one to stay true to form,” Jason said. “On and off the stage, we are The Rat Pack, making the show more authentic.”
As Ol’ Blue Eyes, Jason’s voice and mannerisms make it as Sinatra has never left us. Making a tough task look easy, Diamond sounds and moves just like Davis Jr. saying, “It’s fun for us, so it comes through to the audience.”
Rounding out the “Pack” with his smooth voice and hysterical wit, Anthony has the crowd rolling in the aisles bringing “Dino” to life.
“It’s a real responsibility to come in here every night and fill the shoes of these icons,” he said.
Joining the boys is 37-year Strip entertainer, the sexy and sultry, Joelle Righetti, who takes the showroom by storm.
From “Fly Me To the Moon,” to “Volare” to “The Candy Man,” they cover all the hits while interacting and improvising with onlookers, compelling everyone to sing along and be part of the show.
This is a show you can see over and over again and never grow tired of it. Many people long for what they call old Vegas. If you want to experience the good old days, then see The Rat Pack Is Back.
You can catch the show every night of the week except for Sunday’s. Be sure to stay after for a meet-and-greet and some amazing stories by this charming cast.
Goss wows ‘em at Mirage
Known for his impassioned performances that combine intoxicating vocal sets, big band instrumentals, and old-school glamour, British-born singing sensation Matt Goss’ sleek style and unparalleled ability to engage audiences embody the magic of Las Vegas’ classic lounge crooners. He brings his celebrated act to 1 Oak at The Mirage.
Matt got his start in entertainment in 1988 as lead singer of the band BROS alongside his twin brother. He quickly became the youngest artist to sell out the world-famous Wembley Stadium, played a record 19 consecutive nights at Wembley Arena and performed twice for Her Majesty the Queen.
His debut album went platinum seven times, earned 13 Top Five hits and remained on the UK chart for an astonishing 84 weeks. Goss has sold millions of records worldwide and achieved No. 1 records in over 22 countries.
As a Las Vegas Strip headliner for over 10 years, Goss has earned a devoted following for good reason. As he wades through the audience, his class and charisma permeates the showroom as if taking you back in time to the famed New York nightspot, The Copacabana circa 1950’s. As the show unfolds, the star miraculously addresses each guest individually, making the performance very special for all who attends.
Along with 12 talented band members and a quartet of dancers mingling through the crowd, this iconic cabaret-style entertainer is truly original. His catalogue ranges from original music to standards and classics. Whether written by him or others before him, each song he belts out is made very personal as he sings and talks in detail about family, loss of love, and love itself.
The audience is compelled to sing along and get up and dance. Even 30-year friend Debbie Gibson (in attendance this week) was up on her feet, grooving with the crowd. When asked about Goss, Gibson said: “ It’s amazing to see how Matt has evolved from the boy I knew into the spectacular showman that he has become.”
The pop icon went on to say, “There is no one else like him who can combine old Vegas with a modern flair.”
As a singer, his range is unrivaled. There were no guests not standing in applause to either of his renditions of “Unforgettable” or “Hotel California.”
The talented performer said, “This show is about truth … everyone’s own personal truth. I am here to take you on an emotion journey.”
If you are planning a trip to Las Vegas, I can’t stress enough that you must plan your visit to coincide with Matt Goss’ show. He is scheduled every Sunday through April with meet-and-greets available.
