The evening’s Frank Sinatra, Stephen Rashbrook, has played Ol’ Blue Eyes at the Strand, Savoy and Adelphi Theatres in the West End of London and on UK, European and US tours.

And Jim Whitley, as Sammy Davis Jnr has toured extensively as both Sammy and Nat King Cole and has previously performed at New York’s Rainbow Rooms.

Together they combine ‘swingsationally’ in Rat Pack Live.
