Bill Boggs
Music / Arts & Letters

Course Description

This video-rich program will have the audience swinging with Frank, Dean and Sammy! It's The Sands in Las Vegas, 1960, and Sinatra, Martin, Davis, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop take the stage for a month of legendary shows at the height of the greatest era in nightclub history. Here "The Rat Pack" is born - filming Ocean's Eleven during the day, and playing to SRO crowds at night. With music, videos (including his interviews with Frank and Sammy) and other stories, Emmy Award-winning TV host, Bill Boggs, shows us these stars' shining moments. He takes us back for an inside look at the intriguing and little known birth of "The Rat Pack." "Boggs brings 'The Rat Pack' alive. You can almost smell the smoke and martinis." - The East Hampton Star
