"The Rat Pack is Back."
Me and the GF have just spent three days in sunny-yet-cool Las Vegas.
What is cooler than the Rat Pack: Sammy, Frank, Joey and Dino. We saw the show, "The Rat Pack is Back": a retro-look at the Copa scene in the 1960s when the pack reigned over sin city.
We had a great time at the show...we sat in the front row and H was included in some of the comedy where Joey Bishop would speak to those in the front row. So much like the shows of my youth when my dad was buddies with so many show-biz Vegas stalwarts.
It's so nice to hear a live 18-piece band, a la the Carson show band with Doc, play the songs and punch in with counterpoint to the crew's jokes. I remember doing similar work in my 20s as a jazz guitarist playing celebrity roasts in LA and Santa Barbara...I wish I had some more pics of last night...more on that later.
Since the weaqther here is so nice this week, I'll go to work on my tan before returning to Canada.
happy new year to all of my on-line friends:
Kazz and the rest of the RW gang.
And especially Annie, who is a good friend.
The real-life people don't need mention.
happy new year!
