2017 is about to go out with a bang with my Las Vegas show, Drinkin’ - Singin’ - Swingin’ playing a five-night run at the Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino in Laughlin, Nevada from December 27th through the 31st.  We’re going to bring out the “laugh” in Laughlin along with a whole lot of swinging tunes.

Quite often names don’t really have a lot of meaning, but there are times when they can tell a story.  A long-time custom in show business has been to change your name to something deemed better suited for the public.  Maybe the name is difficult to pronounce or is too similar to another famous person.  Perhaps you’d just like something that sounds a little less boring.  Of the five core members of the Rat Pack that would go on to become household names, three were born with a less familiar moniker.  Do you know why?
