The Vincennes University Community Series presents – The Rat Pack is Back

THE RAT PACK IS BACK! Featuring a 7 piece Orchestra

“Watching The Rat Pack is Back! is like going back in time to Vegas in its Hey Days…..What a show!”

Now, in its eighteenth smash year with over 6000 performances in over 40 states, 4 foreign countries, and over two million tickets sold, relive the days of the Rat Pack with Las Vegas’ most famous entertainers and their live big band as they appeared in the Sands Hotel Copa Room. The Rat Pack is Back! is the only Vegas-based show with national touring companies and an award from the “Congress of the United States.”


When the Rat Pack gets together onstage, it’s magic. There are no card tricks and no rabbits popping out of hats, but when Frank, Dean, and Sammy hit the stage, it’s there—the same magic that filled the room when these three icons performed at the Sands during the ’60s and ’70s. The 75-minute tribute show The Rat Pack is Back! takes audiences back to an era when the Strip had live music and entertainers knew how to work for the crowd.

With a stellar cast of some of the finest performers in the business, The Rat Pack is Back! has been hailed as the next best thing to seeing the original Rat Pack themselves.

7 Bridges: The Ultimate EAGLES Experience is a stunningly accurate tribute to the music of the Eagles. Using no backing tracks or harmonizers, 7 Bridges faithfully re-creates the experience of an Eagles concert from the band’s most prolific period. Every show features one brilliant hit single after another with some mighty Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Glenn Frey solo surprises sprinkled into the mix. 7 Bridges offers the perfect blend of songs to capture all levels of Eagles devotees.

7 Bridges is a tour de force of talent, combining incredible musicianship, vocal precision, and a stage presence that has garnered them nationwide acclaim. The band features Jay Sweet as Glenn Frey, Keith Thoma as Don Henley, Brandon Roberts as Randy Meisner/Timothy B. Schmit, Richie Scholl as the eccentric and unpredictable Joe Walsh, Brian Franklin as guitar wizard Don Felder, and Vernon Roop as Joe Vitale, the often unsung hero of many Eagles studio albums and live
performances.

For years, 7 Bridges: The Ultimate EAGLES Experience has been the ‘go to’ choice for corporate, fair/festival, casino, and private events. 7 Bridges provides an all-ages, family-friendly show weaved into a powerful rock-n-roll concert experience. The perfect entertainment package!!

The Vincennes University Community Series presents – Wynonna & the Big Noise

Respected by the millions of fans who are drawn to her music and undeniable talent, Wynonna’s rich and commanding voice has sold over 30-million albums worldwide spanning her remarkable 34-year career. As one-half of the legendary mother/daughter duo “The Judds,” Wynonna was once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.” This iconic performer has received over 60 industry awards, with countless charting singles, including 20 No.1 hits such as “Mama He’s Crazy,” “Why Not me,” and “Grandpa, (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Ole Days).”

Wynonna and her band The Big Noise, led by her husband/drummer/producer, Cactus Moser, released their debut full-length album in February 2016 via Curb Records to critical acclaim. Wynonna has described the new sound as “vintage yet modern” and a “return to the well.” It’s a rootsy work encompassing country, Americana, blues, soul and rock. The album features special guests Derek Trucks, Jason Isbell, Susan Tedeschi and Timothy B. Schmit. NPR’s Ann Powers noted that, “With her tight band behind her after touring together for several years, she just sounds like she’s home…You can just feel the grin on her face.”
