Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Goes 'Glee'

The Talented Cast of the Vegas-Based Hit Production Debut Their Spirited, Mob-Themed Music Video for the Classic, "Mack The Knife," on March 24

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Wherever he is, Bobby Darin's "showing them pearly whites" -- no doubt grinning from ear to ear at the fun-filled, old school gangster-themed video for the classic song "Mack The Knife" starring the cast of "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show" currently packing them in five nights a week at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Fresh off the impressive success of their first music videos which they produced for young singing sensation Oliver Richman's "Defying Gravity," and "One Little Christmas Tree," creators Lisa Dawn Miller, Mark Matson and Sandy Hackett gleefully bring this colorful music video which incorporates live performance footage into a "Glee"-inspired dramatization of the iconic song.

Combining "Old Vegas" with "New Vegas," the ten-minute video starts off with Hackett (son of legendary comedian Buddy Hackett), whose own past is rich in Vegas history, reminiscing about "Old Vegas" as he shares with his son, 10-year-old Oliver Richman, how things "used to be." Cast members of "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show" portray the "Rat Pack" who in turn, get into all kinds of trouble, as they become the gangsters they sing about so well, with Frank Sinatra (David DeCosta), Sammy Davis, Jr. (Doug Starks), Dean Martin (Johnny Edwards), Joey Bishop (Sandy Hackett) and Frank's One Love (Lisa Dawn Miller). Riviera Hotel & Casino President Robert Vannucci makes an appearance.

Unique in its visual and vocal interpretation of the song, the video can be viewed online at www.SandysRatPack.com and on YouTube. The video was debuted to a live audience following the show on March 23 at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas.

Hackett-Miller Productions is currently working on Richman's next recording, "I Can See," one of the previously unreleased gems penned by Lisa Miller's father, legendary songwriter Ron Miller. Miller will be releasing her highly-anticipated CD in July 2011. Hackett runs the Riviera Comedy Club in which he appears weekly.

"Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show" runs five nights a week (Tuesday through Saturday) at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rivierahotel.com/entertainment/rat_pack.asp or www.SandysRatPack.com. The show launches its 2011/2012 domestic theater tour in September through OBB NYC while it runs simultaneously in Las Vegas.
