You’ve seen those tributes to the fabled Rat Pack of Vegas lore and legend — and its heart-‘n-soul core of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin — at Atlantic City casinos, New Year’s parties and our own Count Basie stage. But have you ever seen a one-man treatment of those three consummate entertainers, who together defined a cocktails-and-cufflinks era of old school cool?
Meet Dave DeLuca — onetime Motown songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and, it tuns out, a masterful musical impressionist. It stands to reason that such a multi-talented guy might have nurtured a set of multiple personalities when performing — and when the singer brings his Rat Pack Flashback show to Middletown Township Public Library on Monday evening, June 9, he’ll be traveling in the HOV lane, accompanied by his spot-on channelings of Dino (“Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”), Sammy (“That Old Black Magic”) and The Chairman of the Board (“Summer Wind”).
As with all offerings at MTPL, there’s no admission charge for the 7 pm program — and there’s also no advance registration required (although attendees are urged to arrive early for first-come, first-served seating). Call (732) 671-3700, ext. 320 for more info.
