The esteemed Losers Lounge tribute to The Rat Pack, a bi-monthly tribute project established in New York City by Joe McGinty (keyboardist for Psychedelic Furs, The Romones) in 1993, is coming to Philadelphia to pay honorable tribute to none other than The Rat Pack!
When McGinty and singer Nick Danger established Losers Lounge, their original piano singalong night turned into a hit tribute concert to Burt Bacharach. Since then, McGinty and Danger maintained a strong tradition of honoring artists throughout time and space, and with the help of the Kustard Kings back up band, they've thrown over 16 years of sold out tribute shows across various NY venues. In the past, Losers Lounge has explored well known and lesser known works by artists such as Queen, Neil Diamond, and David Bowie, with quite a number of famous artists such as Debby Harry and Nellie McKay stopping in to join the fun. Now turning their attention to the famed 1960's Rat Pack, which included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford, Losers Lounge are coming to Philadelphia to present an exciting list of covers.
For the first time in history, they are bringing their exciting performance to Philly. So if you love the music of the Rat Pack, come join us this Friday at Noon for an unforgettable tribute to some of history's most cherished musicians.
