This top international lineup pays tribute to the dynamic music of The Rat Pack.

In addition, New Yorker Tom McGuire shows his passion for crooning signature Rat Pack hits.
Experience the enduring appeal of golden melodies, bright horns, and swingin’ rhythm through cool songs such as “The Birth of the Blues,” “Mr. Bojangles,” “Sway,” “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head,” “Volare” and many others.
What’s more, there’s spotlight on Rat Pack Tribute instrumentalists and their soloist virtuosity that adds further creative energy. Join this unique musical celebration of one of the world’s most renowned entertainment trios. It’s outstanding jazz – both retro and fresh – all at once!
