Rat Pack tribute this weekend benefits Milford Chamber of Commerce

The Rat Pack Tribute is coming to Milford on Friday, Nov. 22, at Costa-Azzurra Restaurant.

The evening will include cocktails at 6:30 p.m., dinner at 7:30 p.m., and ShowTime at 8:45 p.m. It is presented by Milford Consortium for Child Care Initiatives, Inc. with AT&T, The United Illuminating Co., and Schick as performance sponsors.

The show is a fundraising event to benefit the Milford Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets are $59 and can be purchased through the Milford Chamber by calling 203-878-0681 or emailing chamber@milfordct.com.

The show is a throwback to days gone by. When Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. hit the stage, it was always a “swingin’ affair.” These talented entertainers, known as “The Rat Pack,” were the “coolest cats to ever play Las Vegas…. or anywhere for that matter,” show promoters said.

Now, three skilled New York actors are bringing the songs, the laughs and the charisma of Frank, Dean and Sammy back to life in “Swinging with the Rat Pack.”

When they perform, they not only capture the look and sound of Frank, Dean and Sammy, but their charm and chemistry as well.

Just like the original Rat Pack, the show is completely spontaneous and full of ad-libs.

“Luck be a Lady,” “That’s Amore,” “The Lady is a Tramp” and “Candy Man” are just some of the timeless classics on the program.

“Swinging with the Rat Pack” has performed at various corporate events and private affairs throughout the country. This show has been staged in casinos in Atlantic City, BB King’s in Times Square, Feinstein’s at the Regency, Harrah’s St. Louis and the Empire Casino at Yonkers Raceway.
