Las Vegas show Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show: The 1960s sparked the localized revolution in style and substance that brought Vegas into the spotlight as the redefinition of entertainment culture. No one group was more instrumental in facilitating this image than the infamous Rat Pack. “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” is a reliving of the newborn era through a Las Vegas show featuring the immensely talented and endearingly conflicted quartet. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop are played to perfection by tribute artists with a penchant for nailing not only the image and the sound, but the social dynamics that rendered their legacy untouchable.
Between their dead-on style, amazingly talented vocals and the utterly flawless way they portray the personalities and playful banter of the famous four, the imitators manage to become emulators, putting on a Las Vegas show that will create as many fond memories as it relives.
The Las Vegas show kicks off with nostalgic images of the original Pack in their beloved environment and ever true to their form. The voice of God Himself fills the Shimmer Cabaret, sadly reminiscing on a lost era before summoning the group back for one last sendoff. The Pack then makes their anticipated appearance, backed by a large orchestra and dedicated to performing every classic tune with meticulous accuracy. By the time the Las Vegas show has closed its curtains, you’ll have been serenaded with “Drink to me Only with Thine Eyes,” My Kind of Town,” “That’s Amore,” “My Way,” and many other definitive numbers that probably arouse feelings of both admiration and envy for the superstars that rose to the heights success living their lives exactly how they wanted to.
