The Pack is Back

(Sinatra, Martin, and Davis Jr.)

7:30 p.m. Saturday, September 3, 2022

Devou Park Band Shell, Covington, KY 

Admission is free, contributions encouraged. Register for Concert Updates!

The Rat Pack (Frank, Sammy & Dean) drop in for a Labor Day weekend of song and antics back by the KSO.  Classic entertainers seldom travel in packs, but the mid 1950s through the 1970s produced a triumvirate of singers who lit up every room and every stage on which they appeared.  The KSO closes its 28th summer season with classics by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr.   Vocalist, Dan Radank, Mickey James, and Corey Tucker perform enduring hits by some of the greatest entertainer-crooners of the 20th century. Authentic orchestrations by Nelson Riddle, Victor Young and others will be performed the KSO’s all-star big band with strings.  Sing along with ageless croon tunes Like “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Volare”, “Mr Bojangles” and more. (see playlist below)

Seniors and others who wish to avoid crowds are invited to attend the Saturday 10:00 a.m. dress rehearsal (all pieces may not be played uninterrupted).

A TANK Shuttle Bus will depart every half hour from Covington Catholic High School on Dixie Highway starting at 6 p.m through 7:30 p.m., for $1 each way.  Chairs and coolers are allowed on buses.  At the end of the program, shuttle buses await to return immediately to the CCHS parking lot.

There is no admission charge for this concert. However, we encourage and appreciate contributions of $5 per person. Your generosity keeps the music playing!
