So much for my new year’s resolution to write more blog posts. Sorry I have been slacking, but the new website is coming along nicely, won't be long now. That being said, every once in awhile an event comes along that you just have to talk about. This past week we were brought out by Sin City Entertainment to cover a corporate party at the Golden Nugget featuring their fabulous showgirls and Rat Pack performers. We had one photographer working the red carpet step and repeat and I was covering the stage show.
Now without ageing myself too much, I can honestly say I can remember when the real Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin & the chairman of the board himself, Frank Sinatra, were still performing on The Strip. No, not in the heyday of their careers, I’m not that old, but I do remember them limping through a few solo performances in the 80’s. I have been a huge fan of the Rat Pack my entire life and even though it wasn't the legendary shows that they were famous for, I still got to see them live, which was amazing.
Of course, I have also seen countless recordings of their original shows, and I believe ‘The Strangers In The Night’ Rat Pack Tribute Shows starring Nicholas Brooks (Sammy), Johnny Edwards (Dean) and David DeCosta (Frank) is the closest we will ever get to seeing that charisma and charm live and in person. It was superb!
Sin City Entertainment is always a pleasure to work with and their long list of impersonators and entertainers make my job a blast. I can’t wait till the next event! - MH
