My View: Michele Lee & The Rat Pack in Palm Beach

It wasn’t Dean, Sammy, & Frank last night starring in Rat Pack night at the Pelican Cafe Cabaret but it was Chris, Jill, & Rich.  Supporters and friends of Dick Robinson’s Society For The Preservation of The Great American Songbook gathered at North Palm Beach’s answer to the 1960’s exciting nights in Las Vegas when those super stars cavorted in front of tables filled with celebrities.  However the Pelican did have Michelle Lee at a ringside table and Dick Robinson seizing the moment made his way through the throngs of Michelle fans to give the audience a quick interview with the Broadway, Film, and TV star.  I’m sure “The Old Jock” will be airing it on his Legends Radio stations (100.3FM) and worldwide on the internet in the near future.   

The “Copa Room” (renamed for the evening) of the Pelican Cafe was also filled with local Palm Beach celebrities who were treated to some tunes sung by Chris Santiago.  Chris is Legends Radio’s Young Artist of the year and was introduced by entertainers and radio hosts Jill & Rich Switzer the stations Morning Lounge hosts.  The evening ended a bit earlier than a Las Vegas night but the same kind of fun and excitement filled the cabaret. You could even place a bet by buying a raffle ticket for a prize from The Society For The Preservation of The Great American Songbook.
