David Sings Rat Pack
A Trip to Las Vegas with Ol' Blue Eyes and The L.A Showgirls
More than a Tribute! Experience The Man & His Music Live with his Showgirls, in the City that he helped to shape - Las Vegas.
From his debut at The Desert Inn in 1951 through the swinging golden years at The Sands during the sixties, to his final goodbye at The MGM Grand in 1994, the magic of Sinatra live in Vegas is captured perfectly.
This stunning production features Sinatra with The L.A Showgirls and can be booked with a fabulous live band or with a playback option.
The show perfectly captures not only the wonderful music and comedy of the original legend, but also the remarkable personality of the star who ruled the world of entertainment from The Sands Hotel during the glamorous Vegas heyday of the sixties.
Featuring the beautiful L.A Showgirls wearing costumes actually worn at The Desert Inn and Flamingo hotels in Las Vegas, when the company danced for Headliners such as Don Rickles, Buddy Greco and Jack Jones. The show is available with superbly recorded orchestral tracks or alternatively backed by the swinging Don Hunt band. Mr Hunt has also served as Bruce Forsyth’s musical director for over thirty years and during an amazing career has held the same role for the likes of Anthony Newley, Bing Crosby and even the real Sammy Davis Jnr. Many sizes of band are available, from a trio to a 20 piece orchestra, and you have the option to choose the band appropriate for your event.
The show includes all of the hit songs made popular by the legendary performer such as "Come Fly With Me", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "My Way", "Strangers in The Night” and of course, New York New York. These are performed with Amazing Accuracy by David, who not only sings like Ol’ Blue Eyes, but also shares his unique mannerisms. Physically resembles him on stage and even talks like he is at the Sands taking part in a legendary concert with The Count Basie Orchestra.
David, who also devised the show, trained in performing arts at the prestigious Italia Conti Academy. With numerous T.V appearances to his credit including “Lovejoy” and “Inspector Alleyn”. David was one of the first artistes to embrace the Tribute Market and after watching Frank Sinatra perform live in London twice, became one of the first British tributes to ‘The Chairman of The Board’.
He has spent the last twenty years portraying Sinatra in productions worldwide. Including fifteen years in his own celebrated Rat Pack show. He has had the honour of performing at a Royal Command Performance for HRH The Princess Royal and in 2013 was voted the Number One UK Tribute Show by The Agents Association of Great Britain.
This year David is playing major theatre’s and concert halls worldwide with The Sinatra Centennial Concert which celebrates 100 years since the icon was born in Hoboken. The Concert also features Special Guests Kenny Lynch and Anita Harris along with a full orchestra.
After touring with the Vegas Legend and extended Rat Pack member - Buddy Greco, Buddy was moved to say that "This Guy Really is Sinatra" - quite a complement! but even this did not come close to the comment by the Frank Sinatra Estate managed by daughter Nancy Sinatra, who said that David's recording of "New York New York" with a 35 piece orchestra for a new Atari PC game was "too close to the original recording by Mr Sinatra for comfort" It really doesn't get better than that!
In the words of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, “Sinatra was the destination's most enduring icon, an inimitable original who was influential in shaping Las Vegas' image and entertainment scene. If you were in Las Vegas at the same time as Sinatra, there was nothing else that could compare. Even when the entertainment in town was changing from headliners to magic and production shows, Sinatra was still the ‘main event’ “
So don’t miss this opportunity to bring a touch of Las Vegas style and glamour to your event. David Sings Rat Pack and The L.A Showgirls will ensure that it becomes “The Main Event”!
What they are saying about David Sings Rat Pack:
“Well this guy really is Sinatra! It’s frightening”.
Vegas Legend - Buddy Greco
“His Recording of The Theme from New York New York for Atari Games is too close for comfort”
The Sinatra Estate
“He seemed to have somehow imbibed the very essence of ‘ole blue eyes’ before coming on stage. His performance was breathtaking - seriously! The tone, the modulation and the rhythm in his voice throughout the evening was genuine Sinatra. His masculine charm was also apparent in his pristine characterisation and it was with effortless charisma he strolled into the audience and sang I’ve Got You Under My Skin while chatting and engaging with the ladies - just like the icon”
Sarah Gudgeon - - The Edinburgh Herald & Post
“David not only looked like Frank but he had the drawl, the wit and boy could he nail a tune. We may never see such greats as Frank Sinatra again in our lifetime but the good news is that as long as such talented impersonators continue to exist, we may not need to”.
Chris Longhurst - Uxbridge Gazette
“David wraps his late night programme at The Café Royal in elegant chic”
James Green – The Stage
“Sinatra himself (David - who also devised and directed the show) strolled onto stage filling the theatre with a very close vocal of 'Ol Blue Eyes himself – he was good, no... very good!”
Helen Rawlings – The Gloucester Citizen
“The melancholic mood is wonderful but it soon bursts into action as Sinatra sings the songs that made him a legend. David is clearly a student, no, a master of Sinatra as he displays every movement from hand gestures to head turns. It is a fascinating performance.”
Sally Casey – The Harlow Star
“Sinatra is back at The Sands with Count Basie in 1966, as he sings and swings with the style and panache of Ol’ Blue Eyes in his glorious prime”

David has studied the work of Frank Sinatra for many years and had the good fortune of seeing his hero perform live twice. David's show is based on typical Sinatra concerts such as 'The Main Event from Madison Square Gardens' and 'A Concert For The Americas'.
Each song is a Sinatra classic and David performs them with the style, fun and class of the master. As Peter Hepple of The Stage commented "This is a near perfect impersonation when both singing and talking".
Having made hundreds of appearances as Frank on television and radio, in theatres, at open-air concerts and at thousands of private and corporate events, David has the experience to make every event or function, special and exclusive. As he enters the stage, you will immediately feel the magnetism and presence of Sinatra in concert.
