Rat Pack heats up Watermark
The Classic Music Reignited Series kicks off Friday at Watermark Theatre in North Rustico.
The 1960’s pop music scene was spiced up by the sophisticated, sultry sounds of a group known as the Rat Pack. This loosely knit group of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and others stole hearts all over the world with their music.
Kicking off the series is a night a night of cool rat pack music by singer-songwriter and all-round coolster, Dennis Ellsworth, Irish Mythen, fresh from her opening for Rod Stewart in Cavendish, and Island music veteran Chris Corrigan. As a bonus, jazz bassist David Bell and guests will serenade the audience prior to the show and during intermission on the deck.
The bar will be open at 6:30 p.m. and serve Martin-style martinis all night. The music starts at 7:30 p.m.
The series, produced by Rob Oakie, will include Catherine MacLellan and friends singing Joni Mitchell and Neil Young on Aug. 14 and Vishten and the Atlantic String Machine playing Stephane Grappelli and Edith Piaf on Aug. 28.
