The Rat Pack Performing Live, Plus I've Reached 100 Followers

ratpackvegas

I'm not sure where I found this, but I think it's so cool. I would definitely love to have a poster of this at my pad. What do you guys think of it?

Seeing this made me wanna post a clip of the Rat Pack. Here's a video from their charity concert held at the Kiel Opera House on June 20, 1965. The show was hosted by Johnny Carson. This is such an amazing clip. It features a performance by Frank Sinatra. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. & Johnny Carson all get into the act as well. I hope you enjoy it.




P.S. I wanted to mention that I have reached 100 followers! Thanks so much to everybody who is following my blog. I really appreciate it so much. It means a lot to me. It's cool to reach such a milestone. I was never sure that this blog would last very long. I didn't know if anybody would give a flip about the interests I would post about or not. I've been pleasantly surprised by all the feedback I've gotten since starting this blog over a year ago. There have been times I wasn't sure if I wanted to stick around with this or not. I'm glad I did. I appreciate all the support and encouragement you've given me. Thanks for being good pallies. I raise a toast to all of you. Cheers!

Awesome clip. I love how Martin, Davis and Carson all just "casually" raid the stage to provide harmony vocals.

Congrats on the big 100! Your proof that if you stay with it, the people will come.....

Love the graphic - it's almost Andy Warhol. Great news on the followers Keith. I get tons of hits, a healthy amount of comments and havealmost 200 feedburner subscribers - but not many followers. Strange.

Hey Cocktails. Thanks. Oh no, I could never forget about you and all the others. I know there are plenty of people who read the blog and either comment or don't, but aren't followers. I don't do much of the following thing myself. I have blogs that I visit on a regular basis.

Cheryl Lynn said...

OMG! What a magnificent clip! I enjoyed it immensely! I'm so happy for you reaching 100 followers, but I'm not the least bit surprised. You have to remember, Keith, that the era of entertainment your blog covers was indeed golden. Real talent is on display here. People can appreciate that, especially in the sea of mediocrity that counts for talent these days.

Bravo to you!

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. Yeah, it does remind you of something Warhol of someone like him might have done. I do like checking out how many people are visiting, how many people are getting my feed, etc. I didn't realize I had 100 followers here now until someone pointed it out to me.

Keith said...

Hey Cheryl Lynn. Thanks. I appreciate that. I'm glad you and so many others enjoy what I do here. It means a lot. It's great that so many others are fans of the Rat Pack and that era. Cheers!
