The Rat Pack Together Again! has become one of the most popular Rat Pack impersonators shows on the East
Coast. Tony, Johnny and Geno not only perform the best of the Rat Pack songs, but they also sing some of the more intimate numbers that true fans have come to know and love. The show features everything from the individual hits of their early days to the memorable music created when these three singing sensations united. In addition, their onstage banter is a true reflection of the presence that The Rat Pack offered the Las Vegas entertainment scene for years. This Rat Pack impersonators trio is more than a group of tribute singers, as they truly assume the roles of The Rat Pack during their glory days when they are on stage.
