A Toast to the Rat Pack
January 31 and February 1
Drift back to a tuxedoed, glamorous era where the famous rubbed shoulders with the politicians and partied hard. Frank, Sammy & Dean, all around entertainers injected their songs into a lifestyle that everyone wanted. The lights dim, the room quiets and the announcer says "ladies and gentlemen, direct from the bar... Dean Martin!!". Dean opens the show with a few songs and some relaxed humor, introduces Sammy to kick up the energy, then Frank appears to belt a few great standards. The guys then take the stage together to sing and joke their way to a fun finale, including audience interaction along the way.
The Las Vegas Rat Pack will take you on a musical journey featuring the greatest hits from the legendary Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. This production will treat you to Frank's hits including “Come Fly With Me”, “Lady is a Tramp”, “My Way”, and “New York, New York”! Enjoy the soothing sounds of Dean with great songs like “Volare”, “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime”, and “That's Amore”! And from the great Sammy Davis Jr... “That Old Black Magic”, “Mr. Bojangles” and “Candy Man”! These guys not only sing like their heroes, they physically resemble them on stage, share their unique mannerisms and even talk like they are at the Sands taking part in the “Summit”.
With a talented cast, take a trip back to the glamorous, hot, glitzy nights of Las Vegas. Experience world famous classic recordings, great laughs and more that bring the music and lives of these legendary characters together again!
February 7 and 8

3 Redneck Tenors "Broadway Bound"
February 14 and 15
The 3 Redneck Tenors are a new breed in the “tenor genre” – their musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists is like Duck Dynasty goes to Carnegie Hall - down home laughs with big city music! It has been said that if Larry the Cable Guy, Il Divo, and Mrs. Doubtfire had a baby, that child would be The 3 Redneck Tenors. Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by award-winning composer Craig Bohmler, and starring Mr. Lord, Blake Davidson, and Jonathan Fruge, The 3 Redneck Tenors were top finalists on "America's Got Talent" and have been thrilling audiences since 2006.
These boys have seen it all, sing it all, and make us laugh 'till we double over, reminding us that in life, it's not just the destination, it's the journey. Get ready for one side splitting ride as we go on an excursion only the 3 Redneck Tenors could have had… delighting audiences with their vocal prowess and a smorgasbord of songs and music ranging from Gospel, to Country, to Broadway, Pop, and Classic
