Dean Martin

Dean Martin image for websiteDean Martin is one of the most popular entertainers of all time. One of the few true Triple Threats of the 20th Century: His talents were equally powerful as a singer, a comedian and as an actor. His work was always marked by an effortless grace that parlayed his golden voice and sexy charisma into one of the most successful careers in show business history. His hit singles include “Volare,” “That’s Amore,” “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head,” and the song that knocked the Beatles out of the #1 spot on Billboard, “Everybody Loves Somebody.” His film career was marked by a long partnership with Jerry Lewis who called Martin one of the greatest comic geniuses of all time, and his roles in “Rat Pack” movies such as Oceans 11 are still enjoyed all over the world. His film credits include Rio Bravo, Who’s That Lady, Bells Are Ringing, Come Blow Your Horn and the Matt Helm series of movies. His TV variety show was a hit from 1965-1974.

Sammy Davis Jr.

By | News | No Comments

Sammy Davis Jnr Image for websiteBorn on December 8, 1925, in New York City, Sammy Davis Jr. overcame prevailing racism to establish himself as an entertainment legend, becoming a successful comedian, actor, dancer and singer. As part of the Rat Pack, with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, Davis was known for films like Ocean’s 11 and Sergeants 3 along with his partying ways. As his fame grew, his refusal to appear in any clubs that practiced racial segregation led to the integration of several venues in Miami Beach and Las Vegas. A Tony-nominated performer, Davis was also associated with popular recordings like “I’ve Gotta Be Me” and the No. 1 hit “The Candy Man.” He died of throat cancer on May 16, 1990.

The iconic performer also released a steady stream of albums on Decca and Reprise. (Davis was the first artist to be signed on the latter label, which was launched by Sinatra.) Davis was nominated for a Record of the Year Grammy for the song “What Kind of Fool Am I?,” which reached the Top 20 of the Billboard pop charts as well. And Davis’s live stage work continued to earn him honors, as seen with his Tony Award–nominated performance in the 1964 musical Golden Boy.
