Enormously popular in records, film and television, they were pioneer entertainers of Las Vegas. Triumphant in their success, their love was performing live, their favourite venue The Sands. Frank, Sammy & Dean made The Sands famous due to constant appearances as performers, spontaneous and scheduled, their zany banter and jokes pulled on one another on and off stage and at their parties.
When the Rat pack was in town everybody had the best of times and everybody made money! Humphrey Bogart, whom Frank Sinatra adored, formed the Holmby Hills Rat Pack, later know as the Rat Pack and Frank Sinatra was named pack master. This elitist club’s philosophy in life was dedicated to ‘a little hey-hey’, in Rat Pack vocabulary, having ‘a good time’; drinking, socialising, partying. They worked hard, so they played hard and they answered to no one.
They were outspoken on all subjects and were open about their political connections. Jack Kennedy partied with them, and for a short time Frank Sinatra renamed the Rat Pack, the Jack Pack. Las Vegas was their playground and everywhere else was known, in Rat Pack vocabulary, as ‘Dullsville, Ohio’. Frank, Sammy & Dean were a force to be reckoned with, an inexhaustible energy that is as apparent in their music today as it ever was.
If you wish you’d swung with the hardest partying pack in town, now’s your chance!
