THE RAT PACK IS BACK recreates one of the famous “Summit at the Sands” hotel shows, when the swingin,’ ring-a-ding group known as the “Rat Pack” was creating hipster legend with a free-wheeling, no-holds-barred nightclub act starring Vegas’ four favorite sons: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.

Written and produced by Sandy Hackett, son of legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, THE RAT PACK IS BACK features uncanny vocal recreations, unbridled humor, and a hot, live big band that sends audiences straight back to the coolest time in history. Hits include “That’s Amore,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Mr. Bojangles,” and many more. See why The Las Vegas Sun writes, “This is as close as anyone has come to capturing the feeling of the real thing,” and the Chicago Tribune raves, “Excellent!”
