“The Rat Pack is Back!” at Rio Las Vegas

Go back in time to an era when Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Dean Martin were Kings of Las Vegas with the show “The Rat Pack is Back!”  The Lon Bronson Big Band Orchestra opens the show. Live music, classic songs, dancing and good ol’ fashion improv-style comedy will surely transport you to the “golden” days of Vegas. Bishop starts off  the show with a monologue to warm up the audience and get the giggles going.

My favorite part was Martin drinking from an enormous Martini Glass singing, “That’s Amore!”. Davis sang and performed the emotional Mr. Bojangles. And to end it all Sinatra sang the classic, “My Way”. The personalities leaped off the stage and transported us to the Sands in the 1960’s when these fellas were the epitome of Vegas. It’s a great outing for multi-generational groups.

There are several options when purchasing tickets including General, VIP, and Golden Circle. We sat in the Golden Circle, which brought us closer to the stage with drink service. You can also opt in to include dinner at The Carnival World Buffet. No matter what day of the week you’re in Vegas, you can stop by and see the “pack” at The Rio as this is one of the few shows that perform seven nights a week. Shows starts at  7 p.m. You can purchase tickets at www.ratpackisback.com or by calling the box-office at (702) 777-7776.
