Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show

"The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre is a great gem in Atlanta. The sleek and modern structure is an inviting venue. On this night, the theatre had the buzz much like the infamous Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. They came to see them, the legends the original "Rat Pack", Frank, Dean, Sammy and Joey. "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show" began with a video montage highlighting each of the greats, with the finale being the implosion of the Sands. Then, with an exciting light show the Rat Pack emerged. To an adoring audience, the Rat Pack, started the show with "Hello Again." It was surreal to see them on stage. You really felt like the boys were back in town."

"Sandy Hackett, the son of legendary Buddy Hackett, performed as the comic of the quartet, Joey Bishop. He had the crowd rolling in the aisles."

"The theatre roared when Dean Martin (Tom Wallek) performed 'That's Amore.'"

"Dezmond Meeks' rendition of 'Will I Still Be Me' is fantastic."

"You could feel the presence of Frank in the room."

"An all ages show that is sure to go on for many years to come."
