Apricot MultiMedia Presents:

Dan Sullivan - Entertainer    


The Rat Pack

New In November, 2000

    This show has the punch of a full band. I've pre-recorded drums, bass, piano, vocals, and background guitar solos. Close your eyes and you'll hear four more of me. I just can't play it all live!     

    Individually, they packed the house. Together they packed Las Vegas! Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr., three styles so uniquely different. When they shared a stage they were unpredictable and certainly unforgettable. The remaining core members were Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. In this show, you'll hear about their lives and half a dozen songs from each singer. Following is part of the intro dialogue and the complete song list.

    The Rat Pack was Frank Sinatra - Dean Martin - Sammy Davis Jr., - Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. Others traveled in this circle of friends but these five guys were the core....  The original Holmby Hills Rat Pack was founded by Humphry Bogart with his wife Lauren, who most called Betty, Bacall. It included the likes of David Niven and his wife, Judy Garland and her husband Sid Luft, restaurateur Mike Romanoff, literary agent Swifty Lazar and one other important member, Frank Sinatra. Bogie said their purpose was "the relief of boredom and the perpetuation of independence." Tired of the constant hounding by the press, this was their escape, where they could just be themselves, out of the public eye. Frank was devastated when Bogart died in 1957. It was then he was elevated to Chairman of the Board. In the next hour we'll journey through the lives of Sinatra's Rat Pack....
