These guys not only sing like their heroes, they physically resemble them on stage and share their unique mannerisms.
* Voted the Number One Rat Pack Tribute show in the UK by The Agents Association of Great Britain for The National Tribute Awards 2013 and 2016 *
This Tribute and Award-Winning hit “The Rat Pack Is Back Swing Show” perfectly captures not only the wonderful music and comedy of the original legends but also the remarkable personalities of the stars who truly ruled the entertainment world. To achieve this the producers found the very best tribute artists for the roles of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jnr. These guys not only sing like their heroes, they physically resemble them on stage, share their unique mannerisms and even talk like they are at the Sands taking part in the summit. A larger cast is available for complete production.
DAVID ALACEY IS FRANK SINATRA
David trained at The Italia Conti Academy in London as an actor and has appeared since then in various theatre and television productions. However, he is best known for his remarkably accurate tribute to Frank Sinatra which has taken him all over the world. It also led to television appearances such as “Look East”, “Barrymore”, and “London Tonight”. He can also be heard as Sinatra on various TV and radio advertising campaigns. During a performance at the Cafe Royal, former Rat Pack member and Vegas legend Buddy Greco said of David, ” This guy really is Sinatra” now that is a compliment!
DES COLEMAN IS SAMMY DAVIS JNR
Des was immediately signed to David Alacey Productions after David heard his outstanding performance of Sammy’s classic ‘Mr Bojangles’. This proved to be an extremely good decision, as the similarities between Sammy and Des doesn’t just limit to singing.
PAUL DRAKELEY IS DEAN MARTIN
Paul Drakeley has worked for many years on the British club circuit. It was not until Paul was asked to sing a song at a private function held in the legendary Caesar’s Palace Ballroom, Las Vegas, that he realized his next career step would be the formation of a tribute show to Dean Martin. One of Paul’s career highlights is becoming a BBC Musician of the year finalist and since then has worked all over the world as Dean!
The Award-Winning Rat Pack Is Back Swing Show is a MUST HAVE at any event, function or party!

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
