Rat Pack tribute act plays the Burnsville PAC on Nov. 18

Burnsville’s about due for that old black magic. Frank, Dean and Sammy are happy to oblige.

Featuring a trio of Rat Pack impersonators, “Salute to the Rat Pack & the Legends of Las Vegas” will bring the music and stage antics of the martini-tipping crooners to the main stage of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center this Sunday, Nov. 18.

According to its producers, the show seeks to recreate the spirit of the Rat Pack’s legendary ’60s-era concerts at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, and features a 21-song set list of hits including “The Lady is a Tramp,” “My Way,” “New York, New York” and “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You.”

The performers – Michael Matone as Frank Sinatra, Felix Deneau as Dean Martin, and Steve Roman as Sammy Davis Jr. – bring not just the Rat Pack’s music but also their madcap stage personas to the performance, complete with jokes, skits, and humorous routines.

They’ll have a live band backing them, with the Rat Pack tribute trio joined onstage by the Masters of Jazz Show Band.

Tickets for the “Salute to the Rat Pack” range from $31 to $51 and are available in person at the Burnsville venue’s box office, 12600 Nicollet Ave., and through Ticketmaster at (800) 982- 2787 or Ticketmaster.com.
