About Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack

Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack centers around the four inseparable comrades – Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Joey Bishop, and Dean Martin – and their deep affection and irrepressible sense of fun. Sandy Hackett, who plays Joey Bishop, would be deeply inspired by his comedian father Buddy Hackett. Sandy also entered the world of comedy, following his father's example of extensive reading, attentive studying, and constant refining of his comedy techniques. At the age of eleven, Sandy accompanied a performance of his father's at the "Rowan and Martin Laugh-In." Sandy's talent got the attention of the show's producers, and the youngster made his professional television debut. The good-natured humor of a Buddy Hackett show would forever guide Sandy in his development as a writer, producer, and entertainer.

After earning his degree in Hotel Administration at the University of Las Vegas, Nevada and leading "Sandy Hackett's Talent Showcase" for decades, Hackett received a phone call from a long-time family friend, Joey Bishop. He encouraged Hackett to play him in an upcoming HBO movie about the Rat Pack. Although Hackett did not get the role, the idea of playing Bishop inspired him to create a show about the legendary quartet – and so "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack" was born.

Other members of Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack are Danny Grewen as Frank Sinatra, Louie Velez as Sammy Davis, Jr., and Tom Wallek as Dean Martin. Grewen hails from San Francisco and has been playing the part of Sinatra since 2005. As a boy, Grewen would practice his Sinatra songs and swagger in the mirror at home. Grewen also performs in several bands: High Society, The Carlitos, and Horace-Scope.

Velez, a native of Amsterdam, New York, has been performing as Sammy Davis, Jr. since 1987. His physical appearance, not to mention his act, bears an uncanny resemblance to the original Davis that has been acknowledged by Davis' own family and Wayne Newton, among others. Velez has appeared alongside stars such as the original Drifters, Rip Taylor, Louie Anderson, Rich Little, Steve Rossi, Phyllis McGuire, Kenny Rogers, Marty Allen, Jermaine Jackson, and Debbie Reynolds, just to name a few.

Brooklynite Tom Wallek plays Dean Martin. Wallek is an impressionist, actor, and comedian. Wallek and Sandy Hackett became friends after Tom moved to Las Vegas in 1984. Hackett gave Wallek stage time in his Talent Showcase at the Mint Hotel, allowing the up-and-coming performer to hone his talent. After landing a part in Comedy Cabaret in 1991 at the Maxim, he went on to perform the lead in Tropical Heat at the Rio, opposite Dana Plato.
