Dean Martin's Son Keeps The Rat Pack Spirit Alive At Suncoast

Looking for a Rat Pack fix? We have a lead on a performer who was born into that storied world and is heading back to Vegas. While you can trek to the Rio for a Rat Pack tribute show, at the Suncoast Casino Showroom on March 16-17, Ricci Martin will present “An Evening of Dean Martin - Music & More," a singing tribute to his father, sharing stories and even taking questions from the audience.

Ricci Martin is the sixth of Dean Martin’s eight children and has been performing professionally since the mid-1970s. So he knows about that part. And, he wrote a well-received book about his father, so he's got the anecdote factor down, too.

We checked Ricci Martin’s tour schedule and it appears it has been a couple of years since he played Vegas. We found a promotional video online proving Ricci certainly isn’t shying away from his father’s legacy, interpreting “Memories Are Made of This,” “Volare,” and “That’s Amore.” Tickets are $17.50 to $44 at the Suncoast.

For those looking for a true Dino fix, Ricci directed his father’s one and only music video. So, here's what happens when Rat Pack cool crashed into the eighties.

Hey It's Ricci

If it were Ricky Martin, an evening of Dean Martin,  I'm not sure That's Amor would have the same effect.
