Vocalist Tony Delicata put together the band with a collection of musicians whose previous talents range from West End musicals to The Jools Holland Rhythym & Blues Orchestra.

He told the Herald: “We will tip our hats and celebrate the Rat Pack and they’re friends with our take on music by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Darin, Louis Prima and many more.

“We also make full use of my Italian roots performing many of the treacle thick Dean Martin iconic melodies, and give our own swing/jazz treatment to some vintage Italian pop.”

This five-piece swing/jazz band - featuring piano, bass, sax, drums & vocals - perform those timeless iconic melodies made famous by some of the greats that ever graced the Vegas stage!
